Essential Design Pieces for your Home
Posted on: April 21, 2016 /
Interior design may vary from one homeowner to another. But regardless of preferences and rules, some design tips are a must-have for every home. These design pieces will complement every kind of home, and suit every design preference for any homeowner.
1. Something you’ll splurge on
Sure, decorating a home must be cost-efficient but a splurge on an item you have been eyeing for so long will be worth it. This will help make the total design of your home classy and elegant (even if you compromised on some pieces). But splurging should be tactical. This means you need to splurge on an item which will be placed in the center of your design. It should be eye- catching regardless of the area you are at home. An example of a splurge- worthy item is a piece of extravagant lighting.
2. Something Basic
After you splurge on the central piece of your design, look for basic pieces to complement it. If you splurge on too many items for your décor it will stretch your budget too thin.
3. Something wooden
Some homeowners can’t get enough of wooden furniture while others seem to be wary of using it. But wooden pieces are indispensable in any design, for it helps in adding warmth to any home. It shouldn’t just be confined to the dining room and kitchen. Wooden pieces help to bring an organic feel to any room. It balances the effect of a clean white wall, personal art pieces, and elegant fabrics.
4. Something black and white
A monochrome element will give your design a sophisticated look. Whether you go for a piece of photography or a painted canvas; a black and white piece will add an element of maturity to your home.
5. Something bright or bold
This doesn’t have to be something with a bright color. It can be anything that will stand-out in the total design; a risk as others call it. A risk can be a mismatched piece of furniture or an eccentric vintage find.
6. Something that sparkles
A lighting piece is splurge-worthy because it can give your home a photo-ready finishing effect. Something that sparkles will give your home a sense of movement. Lights are the best pieces to give this effect. Other pieces that will help your design to sparkle are: polished silver-toned metals, sleek satin fabrics, lacquered cabinets and items with sequins or pieces of mirror on it.

7. Cloth napkins
This may be irrelevant for most homeowners who seem to prefer meals on the go over actually dining in the house. But, it won’t hurt to keep them handy on top of your dining table for an element of color and softness for your dining room. Who knows, you might get the chance to eat at home.
8. Champagne flutes
An unexpected celebration is usually a time to pop open a bottle of champagne. It would be a shame if you did not take this advice, and you did not have any champagne flutes for your next celebration.
Lastly, a design should not only be appealing to the eyes but is functional as well.
9. A place to unwind and read
Your home shouldn’t just be filled with decors and furniture. You should also allocate a space where you can spend some time to read a book or an iPad, to help you unwind. A good set-up for this space is a plush chair where you can tuck a stool and a handy floor lamp.
