Scandinavian interiors have become really popular in recent years. It’s no surprise given how functional and stylish they are. The style also fits in with the current Maximalism trend, which is currently taking over from the more basic and once popular Minimalism design.
If you’re looking to add a Scandinavian theme to the home, below you’ll discover some great tips which can help.
Focus on the lighting
Scandinavian weather is a lot different to the weather in the UK. Therefore, a key aspect of Scandinavian design is lighting. It’s paramount to add lighting which reflects the light, bright Scandinavian trend.
You’ll want to focus on lighting which has a slight industrial, yet modern look. Danish lamps and wall sconces are a particularly great choice. In the evenings, candlelight is also recommended. This helps to create the romantic feel so popular in Scandinavian design.
Invest in high-quality Scandinavian style furniture
As well as the lighting, the furniture in the home plays a big part in Scandinavian themed décor. Stores such as IKEA, made it possible to add a Scandinavian feel to the home on an affordable budget. However, while convenient, the furniture isn’t renowned for its high-quality, luxurious look.
If you want to create a true Scandinavian feel, it’s important to invest in top-quality furniture. Take the coffee tables from Cox & Cox as a good example. They come in a wide range of high-end designs. Helping to add a Scandinavian feel to the room, these coffee tables are sure to last a for many years to come.
Clean, light flooring
If you currently have carpets, you’ll want to switch them to hardwood flooring to create a Scandinavian theme. You won’t catch homes in Scandinavia furnished with carpets! Instead, you’ll want to invest in light, bright hardwood flooring.
Painted white tends to be one of the more popular options. This is also great for opening out smaller rooms. Another thing to consider is heated tiles in the bathroom. Again, this plays a pivotal role in Scandinavian design.
The above is just some of the ways you can add a beautiful, luxurious Scandinavian theme to the home. As you can see, making the rooms brighter is a key element of Scandinavian design. Regardless of your budget, there’s always something you can do right now to create a more stylish, Scandinavian theme.
