Keep Things Simple And High Quality

If you want your home to stand the test of time, you need to have quality over quantity in your head. A timeless design is never cluttered or OTT. Try to keep your own design as straightforward as you can, with just one, a max of two focal points in the room.

Make Sure It’s Functional

A timeless home is one you should be able to live in comfortably, and this means that it absolutely has to be functional. It doesn’t matter if it looks beautiful if your family can’t actually live in it. You need to make sure that the lay out is ideal – you shouldn’t be bumping into things as you make your way around the house. It should also be safe, so look into things like security systems and next-generation metal roofing to ensure it’s safe from intruders and the elements.

Ensure Your Home Is Balanced with The Environment

Everything should be proportion if you want to create a timeless home that you should be happy in for the foreseeable future. For example, if the majority of homes on your street are Victorian in style, you may regret making your ultra-modern in a few years.

Choose A Classic Color Scheme

A classic color scheme means using colors like beige, brown, black, white, and grey – but don’t be afraid to add in a pop of color here and there to make it fun and interesting!

Have A Single Focal Point

Having a single focal point in a room will always make it look more professionally put together. Your focal point could be a piece of furniture, the view outside, or even a piece of art. This can depend entirely on the room and how you live in it, so consider this carefully.

Include Indoor Plants

Indoor plants should be used in abundance. They bring happiness and wellbeing to all who see them, and they can also offer real health benefits, such as clearing the air. You can even use fake plants if you don’t want to have to create a maintenance schedule. Greenery never goes out of style!

Go For The Right Kind Of Lighting

Know when to use certain types of lighting. Bright lighting is great for areas you’ll be cooking and working, but not in places like the bedroom when you want to be sleeping and relaxing. White light and yellow light can both be useful in different rooms and different situations!
