Pain Point  

Scouring the real estate market to choose the ideal home for you and your family can be a challenge in itself. However, this is just the first step, as most homeowners then have to navigate the process of designing their interiors from scratch. All this can be rather overwhelming.   

Solution   

The key to designing your homes interiors is to take the process step by step. It’s essential that you write down your needs and preferences and take note of any references that inspire you. You must then hire an experienced interior designer to take care of every aspect of this process from start to finish, so you get nothing but the best.   

In the forthcoming sections, we take you through every major aspect you must consider when designing your full home interiors from scratch.  

Choosing an Overall Theme or Aesthetic    

Choosing an Overall Theme or Aesthetic   

The first step in this often-long process is to decide what kind of theme or aesthetic direction you want to take. The simplest way to do this is to sit down with your loved ones and take inspiration from the various resources available online. From Pinterest to Google, or even online magazines like Architecture Digest, you’ll find plenty of sources that you can scour through.   

You’ll find that there are several different themes you can choose from, be it eclectic, modern minimal, mid-century, European, modern European, or traditional, among several others. Take a close look at each theme and what it encapsulates, and you should have a good idea of which speaks to you.  

Don’t be afraid to mix themes, as anything is possible in the world of design. After all, you’re just gathering references at this point, and your interior designer will help you make the right decision based on your needs.

Choosing the Right Materials and Finishes 

With a basic idea in mind, you can then speak to your designer about your references. This process is always collaborative, as your designer will also show you some themes and ideas that match your tastes and preferences.   

With a theme decided, the next step is to make sure you choose the right materials and finishes for your interiors. From a wide variety of woods and even veneers and polishes, the list is endless.  

Your kitchen, for instance, will require you to choose the right marble or granite for your countertop, along with the wood for your modular kitchen design. Don’t forget the appliances and other technological integrations!   

The same process continues for every space, laying the groundwork for the designing and sourcing to begin. While this process might seem expensive, the benefit of working with a brand like Bonito Designs is that you can Design Now Pay Later, so your dreams are not just dreams, but a reality.   

Selecting the Ideal Furniture for Each Space  

Selecting the Ideal Furniture for Each Space  

With the materials chosen, you’ll also have to design each space in terms of the furniture you’ll incorporate into it. Your choices will depend on various factors, from the layout of your rooms to the number of people in your family, along with the potential need to have some pieces perform multiple roles.   

For example, if you’re someone who loves collecting decorative pieces and other knick-knacks wherever you go, you’ll need plenty of storage space down the line. This is where it helps to choose modular furniture that also doubles up as storage units. For example, a hydraulic bed that lifts to provide storage under it or even a coffee table with drawers can be great options.   

Similarly, your choice of furniture will also depend on your theme. If you’ve chosen to go with a more traditional theme, you can select extravagant pieces with intricate carvings or even dot your space with some art deco furniture. On the other hand, a more modern house will demand minimalistic furniture with sleek lines and minimal hardware.   

Last but not least, you’ll also have to keep in mind the needs of any elderly members of your family. This will involve removing sharp edges from furniture, integrating grab handles wherever needed, and selecting pieces that are easy to sit on and get up from.   

Lighting is Key for home interiors

Lighting is Key 

The key to giving any space life is light. The right lighting adds immense depth and character to any space and is essential when turning your home into an opulent haven. There are countless options you can choose from today, from living room wall lights to chandeliers or even pendant lights.   

Different fixtures work well for different spaces but ensuring that each room is well-lit is key to making your home interiors feel opulent and inviting. The colour temperature you choose also plays a key role here. For instance, warm lighting is ideal for spaces like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. It could even be useful in your bathroom.   

On the other hand, cooler lighting is perfect for spaces that require focus, such as a kitchen, study, or even your bathroom, should you choose not to go with warmer lighting in the latter.   

Transitional style in interior design seamlessly merges the timeless allure of classic elements with the sleek sophistication of modern materials. This fusion of traditional forms and contemporary aesthetics yields a space that exudes both familiarity and innovation.

It celebrates the rich heritage of the past while enthusiastically embracing the fresh perspectives of the present, culminating in a harmonious and subtly captivating aesthetic.

Other Factors to Consider   

The list of elements that you must keep in mind when designing your home’s interiors doesn’t end just here. Some of these other factors to consider, include –  

  • Choosing the right colours for each room based on your chosen theme.   
  • The materials and textures used in furnishings like cushions, curtains, table and bed linen, among others.   
  • Incorporating greenery in your space to make your home feel more luxurious.   
  • Integrating elements that stimulate your sense of touch, smell, and sound.   
  • Making your home interiors age-inclusive to cater to the needs of elderly members at present or a few years down the line.
