Will You Love It Later? 

Now that you’ve decided to build a home, you’re likely very excited to customize the space with colors, patterns, and textures you love. You’ve probably flipped through endless home magazines and scrolled the web, collecting inspirational content for your future home. Although it can be exciting to see new trends, it’s important to strike a balance with timeless features so that you don’t have regrets down the road. Before you agree to a funky, trendy, selection, ask yourself if you will love or loath it later! 

Play It Safe With Cabinetry & Flooring

It’s a good idea to play it safe with high-ticket items that are difficult or expensive to change in the future. Cabinetry, flooring, and backsplashes are all complex to refinish or reinstall. Therefore, it’s best to make timeless choices with these types of elements! 

Go Bold With Interior Paint, Accent Walls & Doors

If you want your personality to shine, have fun with your interior paint colors! As you know, paint is relatively easy and affordable to swap out. If you want to test out a trendy new paint color, give an accent wall a try! Accent walls create a beautiful focal point in master bedrooms, dining rooms, and offices. In addition, feel free to have fun with doors in your home! For example, barn doors come in many different designs and colors. These doors are ideal trendy pieces to add to your master suite, pantry, and more! 

Don’t Go Crazy In The Kitchen 

You know what they say, the kitchen is the heart of every home! With this in mind, it’s a good idea to err on the side of timeless with your cabinetry, flooring, cabinets, and hardware in the kitchen. 

Have Fun With Lighting! 

Lighting can have a massive impact on the overall look and feel of your space. If you’re loving a trendy light fixture, go for it! Lighting can really set the tone in your foyer, dining area, and even pendant lights in the kitchen. 

Experiment With Decor & Furniture 

Making bold material selections is a big commitment. Instead, consider experimenting with trendy decorations and furniture. Decor such as artwork, pillows, and blankets, are easy items to swap out if your aesthetic preferences change in the future. 

Picking The Right Material Selections Is Important

At the end of the day, making the right material selections is up to you! That being said, it may be best to work with an expert who can help guide you through the process. At Hearthside Homes, our design team is ready for the challenge. If you decide to build with us, you’ll have a blast making your material selections at our Design Center in Liberty, Missouri. From flooring to paint, cabinetry, and more, our Design Center makes it easy to visualize your new home. 

In today’s world of rapidly changing trends, whether it is homemaking, design, furniture, or clothes, keeping up with the latest style can sometimes be an overwhelming and daunting process! Just like fashion trends change now and then, homemaking also has new advancements in design, furniture, materials, and technology. However, unlike clothing, a home is an individual’s haven. You want it to reflect your personal style and be a cozy oasis for your friends and family. With this in mind, it’s important to make material selections for your new home that reflects your sense of style and provide timeless beauty and comfort for years to come. Many components of a home can not be changed easily or without a hefty price tag, such as cabinetry and flooring. Therefore, picking the right material selections today will ensure you adore your home for years to come! 

When it comes to homemaking, it is an individual’s abode, and you would want the best materials, colors, designs, and furniture to give you that sense of contention every day as you live in it. Moreover, in today’s world of digitalization, work from home is highly preferred and we often have friends, colleagues, and guests coming over, so one would want to put their best foot forward. Your home should be up to date with the outside world and leave everyone who visits it awestruck!
