There are many advantages to buying a new home versus a used one, especially the ability to design and decorate the way you want to. With a brand new, modern home as your “blank canvas,” you can infuse your unique personality into the space, from your pristine kitchen to your owner’s suite and everything in between.
Whether you’re looking for a fun home project or a completely fresh start, selecting a distinct interior design style gives you direction when it comes to decor decisions. Take a look at a few of the most common interior design styles, and get inspired to turn your new Regal home into the space you’ve always wanted!
Modern Design: Not to be confused with contemporary design (or design of the present day that constantly evolves), modern design refers to a time period, from the early to mid-20th century. Characteristics include clean, neutral-colored rooms with minimal decor and one or two statement pieces as opposed to multiple accessories.
Transitional Design: A mix between modern and traditional design, this style is all about a “blended” look. This may include, for example, classic, antique furniture that makes a pop in an otherwise neutral-colored room, or one or two bold art pieces and limited accessories in a given room.
Traditional Design: Inspired by the 18th and 19th centuries, traditional design strives to create “orderly space” with matching furniture and symmetry. Unlike modern and transitional, bold color palettes set the tone, as well as traditional furniture that can be described as “heavy’ or “ornate.”
Minimalist Design: When it comes to this sleek style, think “less is more.” A minimalist home is mostly monochromatic, with colors being used as an accent. Other characteristics, according to design experts, include open, airy space “with lots of light, and simple line furnishings that are well-built and comfortable.”
In a brand new Regal home, complete with a contemporary, open-concept floor plan, you’re free to unleash your creativity and let your personality shine. With a particular design style in mind, you can work toward creating a finished look that incorporates the pieces that you love and make you feel good.
