Striking a Balance Between Trendy and Timeless Design During Your Kailua Home Renovation

If you’re getting ready to work on a home renovation, you’re probably also planning to redecorate your home. A challenge that many people face when considering a new home design is figuring out what theme to go with.

Each year results in new, trending concepts in interior design. It can be tempting to go with the home design you just saw in the magazine for your renovation. 

At the same time, however, it’s essential to ensure that you are keeping your Kailua home renovation design classic and timeless. This will ensure that you don’t get tired of the look quickly and find yourself wondering why you spend so much money on a redesign you are already bored with.

Small design mistakes, like choosing the wrong soft furnishings or chairs, are easy to rectify. However, major issues, like going with a trendy kitchen finish that quickly wears out its welcome, can quickly cause a hit to your budget.

When it comes to understanding how to balance the trendy and timeless in a way that allows you to love your home design for years to come, consider asking yourself the following questions:

  1. What is the budget that you have in mind?

Trendier finishes can often be more expensive. Setting out a clear budget from the get-go allows you to decide what you can afford when it comes to redoing your interiors. 

It will also help you make a call on how you want to stretch your budget when it comes to investing in trendy décor pieces. 

  1. How often do you plan on revamping the space?

If you’re looking at redoing your interiors frequently – for example, once every couple of years – you may choose to go with a more trendy design. This is because you’ll have the opportunity to change things around before you truly get tired of the look.

However, if you’re looking for a lasting design, it’s a better idea to go with a more timeless design theme. This ensures that the look of the space will always be fresh and uplifting, and you won’t find yourself having buyer’s remorse within a few years.

Another thing that chalking out how often you plan on redecorating allows you to decide how to spend your budget. If you plan on redecorating often, you may decide on going with less expensive accent pieces that you can refresh often. However, for a design you plan on keeping for a long time, investing in quality items ensures that you won’t find yourself forced to replace it quickly.

  1. What’s going to be your focus?

When choosing a focus piece, it’s best to go with a timeless element. This ensures that you don’t get tired of the item that your room is based around. 

On the other hand, when choosing accent pieces, you can experiment with trendy themes. These pieces are usually smaller and easier to replace, which means that when you do want to refresh the look of the space, it becomes easier for you to do.
