Interior Design For Your Home - Part One

Every week we are asked the question “What sort of furniture/interior style do you think will work best with the design we have chosen?” from many of our customers looking to complete their room to suit them, their families and their newly designed space, so we have decided to run a mini blog series on various stunning interior styles we often recommend to our customers to compliment their dream kitchen/bathroom or bedrooms.

In the first of our Interior design for your home blog series we look at how to furnish your kitchen if you have chosen one of our most popular and sleek kitchen styles – The Modern, for example the Remo by Second Nature or handless/gloss ranges.

This style of kitchen is so versatile, perhaps why it is so popular, with sleek lines and an uncluttered approach your furniture should do the same whilst being simple enough to be brave with colour or textile choices. Scandinavian or 60’s styles mix so beautifully with this scheme – look for ‘hair-pin’ legs on dining tables & chairs, light timber such as beech furniture mixed with copper pendant lighting for over islands and breakfast bars for a beautifully calm, contemporary and timeless look.




Scandinavian Styling

Here at IDEAS we love the clean cut elegance of Scandinavian inspired interiors which usually start with a natural colour palette teamed with sharp,simple and well designed furniture pieces. We feel this is a scheme that works well for every home in the house whether it’s a calm living space or a bright and open kitchen. We have recently completed a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom for a lovely set of customers who used their kitchen as the starting point for an overall Scandi inspired design throughout their home – We designed a stunning Secound Nature ‘Remo’ handless kitchen finished in ‘white’ and ‘graphite’, a beautiful fitted bathroom and the most stunning floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes in their master bedroom, see the pictures below for all the cleverly designed spaces we helped them create.

Metallic Taps

The trend for metallic and coloured taps started in late 2016 moving into 2017 with designer brands bringing out some beautiful designs but with a high price to match, however fast forward to 2018 and we see more of our own suppliers producing some on-trend designs at very reasonable prices. From Cassellie’s beautiful Rose Gold bathroomware including shower heads, taps and radiators to Quooker’s limited edition gold plated boiling water tap. Pick matte black ironmongery in your bathroom to compliment the monochrome look or a stunning rose gold tap in your kitchen for a metallic nod to the trend.
