4 Signs That It's Time To Elevate Your Space

There is no place like home, especially one that is beautifully designed around your daily routines and needs. Yet, sometimes your beloved home requires an upgrade. When do you know it’s time to elevate the spaces within your home? And how can you do so effectively? From new floorings and color palettes to upgraded furnishings, there are several ways to feel better in your home without spending an arm and a leg. Continue reading to learn The Design Source’s 4 signs that it’s time to elevate you space!

1. When Clutter Has Taken Over

Maintaining a clean and organized home can be difficult, especially when you have grown accustomed to quick and temporary ways of handling clutter. When you notice the chaos has taken over your home, it’s time to elevate your space. We don’t mean ridding your home of decorative items, like valued collections and personal décor. Instead, begin your home’s return to a calm and coordinated environment by incorporating ample storage within each room. From custom built-in cabinetry to a striking ottoman, you can effectively contain clutter by investing in pieces that bring both beauty and function into each room’s design.

2. When The Basics Need A Transformation

Classic designs will never go out of style, so your home should possess the qualities of a well-designed interior and architecture. However, it's time to elevate your space when the basics get boring and don't meet your wants and needs. Bringing new interest into a space can be done in various ways, from re-inventing your entryway by freshening up the flooring, walls, or color palette to creating an enticing environment. Dress your drapery with thoughtful trim or with a twist on a timeless pattern. Elevate a space’s form by re-modeling or re-designing its interior or architecture. These methods for transforming the basics within your home will elevate your space while still possessing the timeless qualities of classic design.

3. When The Trends Have Transitioned

Incorporating the newest design style is a fun way to add design-forward elements and youthful touches to your space. However, trends can easily take over your whole home. When the current trend dominating your designs is fading out, it’s time to elevate your space. Blend timeless designs into your interiors and architecture to balance out the contemporary elements. Neutral color palettes and furnishings can add an interesting contrast to bold and colorful rooms. Cultivate character into your spaces by pulling from historically classic design elements like symmetry, moldings, window treatments, etc. Trends are not trouble! They should still have a place in your space that is purposeful and harmonious with the rest of your home’s design.

4. When A Space's Flow Needs An Upgrade

Functional and cohesive design should be at the forefront of any space’s layout. When the flow of your home has become unclear, it’s time to elevate your space. For a traditional layout, each room should still possess its secluded and intimate atmosphere. Connecting a few rooms through a cohesive design element, like consistent flooring, can create a sense of togetherness without sacrificing each room’s unique personality and purpose. While open layouts are sufficient for uninterrupted and widespread entertainment, the space can lack a designated flow. To avoid uncertainty in using different areas within the room, incorporate visual barriers, like a rug, a pair of chairs, or an accent wall, to define sections. Doing so will elevate the space by creating an ideal flow from one area to the other.

Creating exquisite spaces that are comfortable, functional, and reflect your personality is the key to a well-designed home. Knowing the signs for when it’s time to elevate your space will help you achieve your design needs and effectively maintain the ideal atmosphere for your home.
