One of the biggest challenges when remodeling a home can be knowing how to find your interior design style. Finding your style goes beyond choosing individual pieces you love (although there’s nothing wrong with this approach) to help you create a more consistent look, feel and theme throughout your home.
How to Find Your Style
Follow the steps below to find your interior design style. Understanding how to find your style will help you kick-start your remodeling project. Once you have a clear concept of your style, you’ll be able to come up with guidelines to stick to it and find cabinets, furniture appliances and more that work cohesively together.
1. Research Popular Interior Design Styles
Learning to recognize popular interior design styles can help you on your way to finding the style that works best for you and your home. Some of the most popular interior design styles include:
- Shabby chic
- Hollywood regency
- Art deco
If you’ve never tried to pinpoint your style before, this list is a great place to start. To find your interior design style, cross off any from the list above that you know you’re not looking for, research those you’re unsure of, and make note of any that excite you. Bear in mind where your home was built and when. Will a coastal theme fit an urban property? Will the art deco style work in a home built last year? There are no restrictions if it’s a look you love, as long as you’re happy with how every aspect of your home works together.
2. Find Your Own Inspiration
Now you have some idea of your favorite, popular interior design styles, you can start looking for images that inspire you. Perhaps you narrowed down the list above to just a few favorite styles, and these terms can give you an idea of what to search for. Use Houzz and Pinterest to find your interior design style and save images of design ideas you love.
To find your interior design style, look for consistencies in terms of the images you find and save. Have you learnt that you love white furniture? Blue tones? Rustic style? Perhaps you still feel drawn to more than one style. If so, that’s ok, this will help your home look unique to you.
