Transforming The Home Into A Showplace

2-2When you begin to plan a remodeling project for the home or you want to change the way that the home looks, consider getting the advice of a luxury interior designer. This is someone who can give you tips and ideas on what can be added to make the home look elegant while increasing the value of the home as well.

If you have a fireplace, consider adding stone that has a light color around it so that the stone brings out the beauty of the fire as it roars in the living room. You can continue adding stone up the chimney so that there is a uniform appearance.

Transform a living room or den to an elegant study. Add a wooden staircase to the upper levels of the home or a large bookcase that takes up one wall. Consider using shelves that are spaced apart to make the case look grander than a traditional bookcase. Include a wooden desk in the room with a beautiful lamp and a comfortable armchair to have a complete study where you can relax and enjoy a good book at the end of the day.

If you have the space in the home, add a few columns. This will give a beautiful look to almost any room and make it seem larger. A piano off to one side and a large area rug are accessories that go well with columns. Another option is to add a modern staircase that is designed with light colors and a stone bed underneath the steps. The stones should be placed in a large box that is coated with pebbles of light colors. You can add a few flowers or small lights to the bed to give an elegant look, especially in the evening.

When you’re in the kitchen, you might not have the storage space that you want. Add cabinets that pull open and reveal a sliding drawer instead of the traditional cabinets that only have one or two shelves. The wooden accents and horizontal handles will create a comforting touch in the room while exuding a bit of luxury as well.
