Five Tips for Updating your Interiors

One of the fundamental reasons we decorate our homes is to reflect our lives which means our interiors should also reflect the time we live in. While some trends may come and go and come back again there are others than need to be left in the past. So if your home needs some updating it might not necessarily require a total home makeover. There are many changes that can easily be made to update your home without calling in a demolition crew. Here are six of our best tips for bringing your interiors up to date.

Replace formal window treatments with a more casual look. Switching out swags and crystals with linen panels or roman shades will shed years from a space and give it a more inviting feel. Plus it instantly lightens and brightens the room.

Change outdated light fixtures. Gone are the days of matchy-matchy lighting. Have a little fun with mix and match options. Hang chandeliers in unexpected places and use sconce lamps to frame mirrors in bathrooms. If you want to break out of your comfort zone with something different an entry or foyer is a great place to try something new.

Switch out pillows and rugs with outdated patterns to those with a more neutral look. Rugs with natural fibers such as jute or sisal tone down a space with overpowering color. Mixing in a few solid pillows adds a sense of calm to a space with lots of pattern.

Update your hardware. Change out knobs and drawer pulls on kitchen and bathroom cabinets for an instant refresh. Opt for a sleek design if you want to make the space more modern. And you don't have to stop there! You can update your furniture the same way.

Lighten up with paint. A fresh coat of bright white paint is like a fresh start. It creates a blank canvas that allows pieces to pop, letting you see them in a new way. This might even inspire you to rearrange furniture and refresh your accessories.

Add Style with Light Fixtures

Add Style with Light Fixtures

 

Lighting is more than just a necessity. Light fixtures can blend right into the existing decor or they can be pieces that help tell the story of your home. Skip the standards and incorporate light fixtures that not only work with the style of your home but make it unique. Check out some of our favorites for almost every room in the house.

We can’t say enough about first impressions. The entry sets the tone for your entire home. If you could choose only one place to make a statement in your home it should be the entry. Choose a light fixture that will reflect your style and the look of your home but don’t be afraid to try something different. These are both great options because of their size, they’re neutral enough to work with most looks, and they have enough interesting details that will take your space beyond ordinary.

Bring the drama in your dining space. A chandelier over a dining table provides mood lighting while you’re dining but it’s also a chance to add some serious designer style. An oblong chandelier works best over a rectangular shaped table while a round one works well over a square or round table. We love these stylish options because they’re sure to add a dramatic flair to your dining space.

Pendants are perfect for the kitchen. Hang one over a sink by a window or hang them in a row of two or three over an island. Kitchens are often overlooked when it comes to the design in the details. Your beautiful new marble countertops and tile backsplash need accessorizing too. Add interest, not clutter, to the kitchen by accessorizing with stylish light fixtures. These are great options for the kitchen because they have some serious style without being too elaborate.

A bathroom doesn’t always need a vanity light, especially if it has overhead lighting. Wall sconces are great because they take up little space, add architectural interest, and provide soft lighting. Flanking the mirror with a pair of sconces also adds symmetry to the space. These sconces would work well with most existing fixtures while adding a polished look to this hard working room.

There are so many options for the bedroom. Just think about the overall style of the space before you choose. Is your bedroom more traditional with ornate pieces? Go with a crystal chandelier. Is it more rustic with weathered wood pieces? Choose something that combines materials such as metal with wood or rope. Chandeliers are better options than flush mounted fixtures when you want to create a custom look. We love these two options because of their soft shapes and the mix of textures.

Lighting may be a necessity but it can also be beautiful. Just be sure to choose light fixtures that are the right size for the space, work with the style of your home, and reflect your personality. All light fixtures seen here are from Uttermost and are available here at EF Brannon Furniture.
