Considerable thought goes into designing the interior of a home.

From which colour to paint the walls to the size of the living room couch, homeowners make many decisions when planning their home interiors. One way to simplify interior design decisions is to choose a style. Interior design styles run the gamut from traditional to modern, and each style has its own unique look and feel. Though homeowners need not feel beholden to any particular item associated with a given style, each has specific vital components that ensure a home has the look the homeowner is aiming to achieve. Let’s simplify popular home interior styles. The three most popular styles are traditional, modern, and Farmhouse,

1. Traditional

Traditional interiors are often associated with associate crown molding and wainscotting, which give a formal yet welcoming feel. Minimal or modern furniture pieces don’t fit with the traditional style, which tends to utilize period pieces made from natural wood. Countrytime Furniture prides itself on our ability to provide customers with solid wood furnishings that deliver beauty and longevity of use. Our Made-to-Order options allow homeowners to create that perfect piece for any space. Beyound the ornate details and wood pieces, Traditional-style is Layered in color and texture. If homeowners aim to accomplish this style, a sense of history and glamour, the layering of textures and patterns should be remembered.

2. Modern

Modern interiors may differ depending on which style of modern homeowners are considering.

Mid-century modern typically features unique furnishings that some might see as retro. However, many companies now offer updated interpretations of mid-century modern that call to mind a bygone era but don’t make individuals feel like they’re living in a museum. Handstone’s Muskoka collections seamlessly combine metal and wood into an elegant retro-looking design. The fusing of characteristics and quality construction make their pieces a natural choice for a modern interior.

Urban modern is another popular modern style, and home interiors fashioned in this style tend to be light, airy, and uncluttered with furnishings. Urban modern decor is sleek and minimal. Calm, soft tones are a go-to with this interior style, helping to create the serene settings many homeowners hope to embody. It combines comfort and glamour in perfect harmony. Linea Leather’s Cassidy collection is a perfect example of this trendy, current interior design style that is the epitome of fashion.

3. Farmhouse

Farmhouse has become very popular in recent years. The style is beloved for various reasons, not the least of which is its association with a simpler lifestyle. The rustic charm of the countryside is never far from the mind when in a home with a farmhouse-inspired interior. Traditional Farmhouse and Modern Farmhouse are different styles, but natural materials and bright colours are elements shared by both. Modern Farmhouse adds glossy components and neutral colours, giving a more sophisticated flair. Large comfortable furniture is the perfect foundation for either style’s living room. The key to a good Farmhouse design is creating a stylish and cozy look. Multiple pillows and cozy throws will quickly add to this aesthetic.
