Locking down home renovation ideas is never an easy task. You might be on the hunt for the best magazine spreads to make your mood board, but at the end of the day, what you want might not align with what you need. However, there are some ideas and a few trends that are always timeless, and today we’ll be sharing some of these so you can evoke that Dream Home aesthetic in your own renovation.
1. Timeless track lights
If you live in Singapore, you’ll know the importance of a ceiling fan, and regular old LED lights tend to get in the way of it even when you go for elaborate false ceiling designs. However, track lights are a tried and true lighting fixture that’ll forever remain one of the trendiest interior design additions for a long time. It not only provides great accent lighting but it also costs less and can be used to evoke a beautiful, minimal design.
2. Never overlook your window frames
Window frames and grills are an important component of any interior design and choosing the right ones matter the most when you want to achieve that Dream Home aesthetic. Know the importance of the right frame – select according to the theme of your home and never forget to pay special attention to the window frame designs. They matter a lot.
3. Match and contrast
As we all know, interior design is a mix and match of various components. Some of them need to match, while others need to stand out if you want to create interest in your space. This is usually done by contrasting furniture and accessories. The dining table and pendent lights in this image are a great example of how you can do so emulate the perfect Dream Home aesthetic.
4. Design according to size
One thumb rule to remember while aiming for a Dream Home aesthetic is to always appreciate the size of your space. Don’t overdesign or select too bold colors if your home is on the smaller side. Similarly, don’t pick light themes and undersized furniture if you have a large home. Always carefully appraise the size of your space and then design accordingly.
5. Simple open shelving
While closed shelving is a dream come true for all minimalist buffs, there’s a certain charm to open shelving that adds a great decorative value to any home. Only with these can you display your prized possessions and baubles on display. You can also play with the size and style of these shelves to accommodate your interior design theme as well!
