Planning how to decorate a room can be difficult, especially when it needs to be in keeping with your style of home. Whether you are doing the work yourself, or getting in a professional – you need to have a basic idea of what colours and design you want before you make a start and then move forward to plan the finer details!
Never underestimate how much the finer details on windows and doors can pull a room together – we take a look at some of the top décor styles around at the moment, and how easy it is to ensure your windows and doors match them perfectly.
If you’re lucky enough to own a period home, your style will most likely involve making the most of the traditional features of the property, for example fireplaces or high ceilings with ornate alcoves. Bold colours with cream or white accents and brass accessories can help bring a room like this to life and if your property features traditional sash windows, we think these Victorian Sash Handles in Polished Brass would be a great addition to it.
Wooden floors, beams, earthy tones and cosy textures are the keys features of a cottage style room and adding a rustic vibe to your windows and doors is a great way to ensure they’re in keeping with the rest of the décor. We think our antique range works particularly well with this style of room, so check out our Pigtail Window Stay and From The Anvil® Smooth Handles.
If the illusion of space is your thing, you’re probably into minimalist living whereby everything has its place and very few items are on show apart from key statement pieces. In rooms such as these, you’ll ideally be looking for neutral colours and clean lines, particularly around your window areas. We recommend our Norton Forged Tempo Espagnolette Security Handle – Slimline and Tempo on Round Rose door handle in Polished Chrome to add a simple yet elegant detail to your room.
Don’t be afraid to use colour in a bathroom if the room is a decent size, it can add to the feeling of warmth if used correctly. However in smaller rooms, neutral and lighter colours work better to give the illusion of more space. Getting the right balance of aesthetics and practicality is crucial to making a bathroom work and greys and greens are very much of the moment. Team that with our fantastic Satin Nickel finish products like the Narrow Midi Brighton Fastener and Swirl on Round Rose door handle – and you’ve got a tranquil room with style!
Traditional and Chic
Statement wallpapers and deep rich colours can make for a great overall style in traditional houses. Combined with dramatic rugs and traditional fireplaces, you’ll definitely achieve the wow factor! For rooms like this, understated yet stylish handles are key – we think our Swirl Deco door handle in Oil Rubbed Bronze would look fantastic in this style of room!
