Everybody wants a stylish home. Whether it’s to impress house guests or make your home feel like your own personal castle, having a stylish home design is important to love the spaces you’ll spend most of your time within.
Having an uninspiring, boring, and drab home won’t do much for your emotional or mental well-being either. It is in your best interests to design a home with brilliant features that meets all your functional and aesthetic needs.
In today’s article, we’ll cover five stylish home design features you should consider for 2022.
Get A New Radiator
Radiators are such an underrated aspect of the home. They often get forgotten about, or at most, they’ll get a fresh layer of paint applied yearly. This is such a shame! Radiators have incredible potential.
With their practical use of heating a room, a radiator will take up a lot of wall space (and sometimes a lot of floor space, too) that shouldn’t go to waste. A great-looking radiator can compliment the theme you are trying to build for your room; in some cases, radiators can even be a focal point.
If you are a person that loves modern interiors, then why not go for a sleek slimline radiator model or something more up-market like infrared glass radiators?
But don’t worry, models such as cast-iron radiators are exemplary for those who prefer a more traditional look. There are radiators for everyone! There are even vertical radiators for those who have a particularly high ceiling space. See what radiator suits your needs the best.
Use Heated Towel Rails
Kitchens and bathrooms can, at times, be a bit cramped. With so many appliances to fit in and storage cupboards to make room for, you are left with very little wall space after everything has been installed. This can create an awkward situation where you have a radiator that sticks out like a sore thumb.
Sometimes, you may not even have the space for a radiator!
That is why heated towel rails are a great option. They are compact, save space, and can heat a room efficiently – what more could you want? They also tend to be very efficient for their size and heat radiance. Consider one today and see if it can add that finishing touch to your kitchen or bathroom needs functionally and aesthetically.
Do Away With Internal Doors
Now, we don’t mean all internal doors. Some doors, such as bathroom and bedroom doors, serve a real function for privacy. But do you really need that door that connects the main room hallway? Or the kitchen to the hallway?
Internal doors can often get in the way more than they help. They do have some benefits, such as better heat containment, but sometimes getting rid of them entirely can accomplish wonders for a home’s style.
And if you don’t want to turn segments of your home into a complete open-plan oasis, that’s fine. Some alternatives, such as light curtains or bead chains, can give you a blend of both.
Consider Wall-Mounted Lights
This is a great way to add some personality to a room and eliminate clunky pseudo- modern chandeliers if you live in a home with high ceilings. Wall-mounted lights come in various styles and don’t require much effort to install (depending on the kind).
If you want lights wired into your home’s circuit, then you’ll most likely need a contractor to do it for you. But powerful battery-powered wall-mounted lights are available that are fairly easy to install, and some are as simple as applying a powerful adhesive – no drilling required!
You’ll need to research what kind of wall-mounted light you want. There are all kinds, such as dome lights, cone lights, soft box lights, and many more. Some folks opt for a naked bulb, which can bode well for rustic or cottage core themes.
Bring Back Rugs
Rugs used to be a staple of home design, and in some designs, they still are. But fewer homeowners are using rugs in favour of carpets, and people are under the illusion the two can’t be used together. This is most certainly not the case at all.
Getting the right kind of rug (design and colour-wise) is all that matters. The quality of the rug material matters, but aesthetically, design and colour considerations are all you need to think about. If you already own a carpeted floor, choose a rug colour that’ll softly contrast.
For example, a black rug for a grey carpet or a soft cream rug for a whiter shade of carpet.
You’ll be surprised at how nice it can look!
We’ve only scratched the surface of what you can do with home design. Start by considering the above features and see what else comes to mind. Be creative but, most importantly, design with your wants in mind!
