Compared to our parents and grandparents, we are living the dream. We have more interior design options than ever before, and all we have to do is look for materials and products to bring our imagination to life. Contemporary design is either something you love or hate. I am a fan. I also enjoy the minimalist style, so there is little clutter in my house, as you can imagine. It is difficult to find original tips on the internet; people repeat the same things. Luckily, you will find plenty of tips here to help you design a beautiful and romantic space that you can enjoy with your partner.
We must address the walls to start. They must be in excellent condition, and the only way to achieve that is to apply a fresh coat of finishing plaster. It is only a fraction of an inch thick, so you don’t need to remove any of the existing product. I advise you to employ a professional to make it perfect.
The ceiling is another vital area of the room. I love timber cladding, and it is a suitable material for use above your head. There is no point in skimping on the cost. The best exotic wood will cost a lot of money, but it is worth every penny. There are some veneered products if you cannot stretch to the real thing. Think about lemon wood, Cuban mahogany, Indian rosewood, and African ebony. Any of those will give an attractive finish that will be the envy of your friends.
The lighting scheme is a vital part of the design. Central chandeliers are not suitable in rooms such as this. Use many LED light fittings in the ceiling instead. Make sure that you can use a dimmer to create a sultry atmosphere in the evenings. Use table and floor lamps to create areas of light and shade to bring intrigue into the space. It all helps to create the romantic ambiance you seek.
Use a fireplace as a focal point in the room. Modern log burners are efficient and thanks to firewood cords, they will give a constant and reliable level of heat. Everybody loves to see a real fire; it stirs primitive emotions and fascinates us.
Keep the furnishings to a minimum. Of course, this room will need a sofa, so look for an original piece. There are some stunning works of art available at a reasonable price, but bespoke items are likely to be expensive. Maybe you could create the perfect shape from a modular product. If it is from a high street manufacturer or a catalogue shop, it is probably unsuitable for a room of this quality.
Real wood or laminate flooring gives the clutter-free appearance that you seek in the design. It is easy to install and relatively inexpensive. You could pay a lot more for a quality carpet. The high-gloss product reflects light and looks fantastic in the evenings. Add stylish rugs to bring warmth into the room if you need to. They are a great accessory for changing the look of the space.
I hope you like these delicious ideas and can use some of them to create the perfect room. I have applied them in many of my commissions, and they never fail to delight the client. That is satisfaction in itself.
