There are usually a few, simple ways to update your home each year to make sure your living space is current with design trends, but yet still functional. 2019, like every year, will come with its own unique styles and trends. Without making large changes, or undergoing major renovations to your home here are some easy design hacks to make sure your home is in line with 2019 design.
Display What is Necessary
Minimalism has been popular for a number of years, and it continues to hold its own in 2019. One of the best things you can do to make your home look more modern, and more put together, is to invest in really good storage solutions so you can organize your items while not having everything on display. Showcasing only what is necessary will ensure your home is less cluttered, and when there’s minimal clutter your home will look bigger, cleaner and brighter.
Choose a Neutral Wall Colour
Neutral colours will decorate a space without leaving too much of an impact on it. These colours will make your space look fresh, and can make small spaces feel just that much bigger. What is great about neutral colours is that you can paint this year and, chances are, you can get quite a few years out of the change without your home looking dated. Bold colours can quickly come in and out of style, so these choices may need to be changed more often than neutrals.
It is fairly popular to have a built in bench in the dining room or front entrance area of your home. These benches are great for a number of reasons, and the first being that they are completely customizable. You can pick your cushion, the size, depth and so on. Even better, they can be built to provide extra storage so that what your family needs is easily accessible without being completely on display.
These tables are pretty unique in that they are a relatively inexpensive purchase that gives you multiple uses in your home. They fit together, so they would take up the space of just one table if you’re tight for space. They also work to provide extra table space for when you’re entertaining guests. As an added bonus of being inexpensive, you can upgrade or change out these tables as often as you’d like.
Bad lighting can change the whole tone of your home. This year, make sure your home is well lit by using concealed lighting fixtures on the top of furnishings and above or below cabinets. A well lit room can make your living space look like a completely different area and like you’ve moved into a new home.
Your home is a reflection of who you are, and your style will be splashed across every room in your home. If you’re unsure as to how exactly you should decorate your home this year, take some time to read over these design hacks for some easy ways to bring your home into 2019.
