Home decoration trends 2019 that does not go out of style
The wooden furniture is elegant and never goes out of style. Any designer or decorator will tell you that there is nothing that adds more charm to a space like classic wood furniture. It is important to select elegant and high-quality furniture. The charisma of wooden furniture is never lost, regardless of how the world is transformed in the future.
Decorating styles of timeless houses
The traditional, oriental and Victorian styles are usually eternal and never go out of style. The minimalist style decorations are also timeless. Once you decide the style of decoration, choose the right furniture and accessories.
Mix glass, wood and stone
This mixture of materials will always look good. Stone floors, wood as complementary material and the proper use of glass (if it is in a better floor-to-ceiling window). This is a trend that seems to never stop having style, and can be adapted to the tastes of each person. Greater use of stone will give a Gothic look, reinforcing the use of wood can transform the space into a classic style, and the use of frosted glass can offer a Victorian look.
A fireplace is a classic and adds warmth to the room. A classic stone fireplace or an elegant modern design made of other materials will always look spectacular in a room even if the years go by.
Lighting and color
Choose the right lighting and tones. There are some colors that are fashionable and as such have a very ephemeral life, they become obsolete quickly. Now for example blue, orange and yellow are very fashionable, but it is likely that in a short time the people who use them will want to paint the walls of another color. It is better to opt for classic colors such as black, white, gray, and the full range of neutral colors. A classic lighting like a spider, will also be a good investment.
Home decoration accessories
You must use accessories that reflect your personality. The decoration of your house can be eternal, but you can also have the touch of your own unique personality. Use sculptures and works of art to make the difference between a mediocre decoration or a great decoration.
Common mistakes in home decoration
There are certain rules that must be followed to create a comfortable house with good looks. If some criteria are not met, the consequences are often disastrous in the decoration.
We give you some ideas of what you should NOT do when decorating your home.
1- Do not buy at random. Establish a budget and make a plan for the purchase. It is best to proceed in this order: floors, window treatments, large furniture (sofa, bed and cupboards), small furniture (chairs, stools, coffee tables) and accessories.
2- Of course the house should not be messy and dirty. It’s basic, but sometimes this is not important. Nor can overload the decoration of objects and accessories.
3- Do not decorate your house as if it were an exhibition or sale room. Your house should reflect your personality and individuality.
4- Your house is not a gallery either. Some people go to this extreme in decoration. Too many sculptures and paintings are not a good thing. Remember that art is only a complement in decoration.
5- Your house is not a telephone exchange either. This means that you must find a way to hide all the wires that are on the ground. You can do it easily by hiding them under the socket or covering them with a cable cover.
6 – It is good to be aware of fashions in decoration, but do not give them much importance. What will you do if in a short time that type of decoration goes out of style? Choose more universal and timeless themes that allow you to keep your home today.
7- Experiment with colors and styles. The mixtures are usually very interesting and vibrant.
8- Never place a lost carpet in the immensity of the ground. The carpets are beautiful, but they must “interact” with the furniture. The carpet must be under the furniture or very close to the furniture.
9- Remember that lighting is very important. If possible, you should light up and highlight the good “corners” and hide the bad ones.
10- Maintain a sense of proportion. Furniture or accessories must be in proportion to the space to be decorated. Make sure you choose them properly so that the room does not become saturated.
11- Curtains are usually a weak point in many homes. The most common problems are that they are too short or too long.
12- The pictures are usually hung very high, keep in mind that they must be at eye level.
13- Placing the furniture separated from the wall can look very nice in the decoration magazines, but in reality the only thing you will achieve is to waste vital space. It is advisable that the furniture is attached to the wall.
14- The furniture must be first of all, comfortable. People usually buy them for their appearance and style, but forget the comfort factor.
15- Take into account balance, harmony and proportions. Do not place a small desk next to a huge chair, a long table with narrow mirrors on it, a large bed in a small bedroom. Keep things to scale.
