It’s important to ensure your home’s interior design is in keeping with your exterior remodeling ideas. Keep the following tips in mind to achieve a smooth transition between the inside and outside of your home.
Matching your interior and exterior color palette is an easy way to create a seamless transition between the inside and outside of your home. If your home siding and outdoor features include earth tones, consider using the same or similar shades in your foyer and living room. This also works if your exterior boasts jewel tones or even pastel shades. You can hire a professional painter to paint your entrance to achieve a harmonious transition.
Artwork and decorative items can help you blend your exterior and interior environments. For instance, if you live in a rural setting, you might hang some landscape paintings that complement your home’s exterior. You can also hang up art that reflects the era of your home’s construction. Be sure to use frames that match the era as well.
You can also mirror exterior wood features inside your home. If your shutters, for example, are comprised of dark wood, consider installing matching flooring throughout the entrance of your home. You can also paint your home’s interior wooden accents to complement your outdoor features. Consider employing a contractor to stain your interior flooring to match outdoor features like your porch or deck.
Certain styles of furnishings blend well with specific styles of houses. For example, if you live in a Colonial-style home, consider designs that reflect traditional and early American decor. Craftsman-style homes work with a variety of designs, ranging from modern to eclectic. Log homes blend well with shaker, traditional and southwestern furnishings.
Consider brightening up your interior setting by painting your exposed brick features to match the outdoors. Painting your fireplace will help blend your indoor and outdoor environments. A professional painter can prepare and paint your brick fireplace to match your exterior brickwork.
Bring outdoor plants inside to blend your indoor and outdoor setting. By mirroring features of your outdoor garden, you can create a seamless flow between your home’s interior and exterior. You can also change your indoor greenery and floral displays to match the seasons.
If your front porch employs columns or other stand-out architectural features, consider installing matching features indoors. Talk to your carpenter or contractor about replicating some of your home’s exterior features inside.
Blending your indoor and outdoor decor will ramp up your home’s aesthetic appeal. A seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor designs could also attract homebuyers if you’re planning to sell. Keep these tips in mind as you contemplate your next remodeling or decorating project.
