Want to enjoy a more lavish living space but are unsure where to start? Don’t stress! We’ve prepared 5 awesome interior design tips that will allow you to add a dash of eclectic style to any room. Whether you want a more colourful kitchen, make your lounge room more luxurious, or simply get more creative with your furniture, be sure to read on! For your convenience, we’ve also listed a Fraser Coast interior designer and cabinetmaker to help make your home décor dream a reality.

1. Add A Marble Laminate Benchtop

Fraser Coast Marble

The marble look has been popular since Roman times, and it’s easy to see why. Its smooth, bright texture is durable, easy to clean and great for bringing out the colours of the surrounding cabinetry.

However, if you want to achieve an authentic marble appearance without forking out for the genuine article, there are a number of marble laminates that work just as well. Benchtop products from leading Australian brand Caesarstone are also guaranteed to add a classical charm to your kitchen.


2. Lay Hardwood Floors

Hardwood Floor

Although carpets have the advantage of feeling great underfoot and being available in a wide array of colours and patterns, their high upkeep can be a real pain.

In contrast, hardwood floors are easy to maintain, long lasting and can add a sense of warmth and grandeur to any room. Hardwood floors can even improve the value of your home, and because there are no fibres, you can enjoy better indoor air quality.


3. Use Striking Wall Paint Colours

Though choosing white walls may be seen as a safe option, the resulting look can be sterile. Choosing richer, darker hues can create a much cosier feel. For example, arranging metallic-coloured or classic furniture before dark blue, tan or burgundy walls will instantly give your home a more welcoming ambience.

If you choose a darker, warmer paint scheme for your home entertainment room, adding downlights is a great way to create a real movie atmosphere.


4. Combine Bright Tiles With Dark Grout

Giving your kitchen that Mediterranean look is far easier than you might think. Just choose bright tiles with a striking linear or floral pattern and apply these with a black grout. Apart from really bringing out the colours in your tiles, dark grout will require less cleaning, as chips and stains between the tiles will not be as obvious.

Compliment your new tiles with some green plants and you will have your kitchen looking like a seaside taverna in no time.


5. Choose Space-Saving Wall Units

Whether you want to showcase photos, create a more functional office space, or transform your spare room into a library, wall units are a must. Many cabinet builders now offer suave, minimalist wall unit designs that deviate from the average models.

In addition to being affordable, wall units can help you eliminate clutter and free up more space. Whatever your décor preferences, you are sure to find a wall unit to match.
