A Designer’s Approach to Affordable Design
Budget is almost always the bottom line when it comes to designing, or redesigning, any space. The concern by everyone is how we will be able to stretch that budget, while providing high end design results. Something of a “magic act” of sorts when it comes to managing project expectations. After all, when you are on a budget the first items to suffer loss of quality as a result are your finishes.
Starting at the top you will notice the completed natural lines of the built-in wine racks along the back lit cabinets. A shiny finished simple cabinet with a hint of flare in the hardware and openers really gives a classic background with the modern single tone backsplash. This leaves only a small banding of the counters in the same style as the floor, but with all the brown tones and veining colors tying the open concept design together. You don’t even notice this space doesn’t have an island because the same countertop in the kitchen is the counter of the dining table. This gives the illusion of an island. And by extending the shelving all the way to the door, you aren’t missing any cabinets or counter space.
Luckily for our Las Vegas customers we are able to provide the highest quality finishes at prices that keep your budget in line. Our team of home designers are able to help you design, or work with your designer, to ensure that your final result is exactly what you imagined it would look like, at a price that makes your smile. Here’s a full top to bottom design that offers everything about modern that you love, with a style that’s functional and sophisticated.
The interior design played a large role in this room as the texture of the materials in the chairs and the design of the table supported the design in whole. It’s those professional elements that really pull a design together, that pays off when you have a professional design. At InStyle Flooring and Designs it is a common practice of adding little design elements into the overall room to help your design come to life throughout your home. It was the flooring, found throughout this entire living, dining and kitchen area space that helped to really keep it bright, and made it feel spacious.
You may hear about maximizing square footage here, but in this space that really had a play. Accents, like the embellishment and painted border, around the sides of the staircase and back of the living space, were able to breath life into otherwise void areas. Bringing these narrow and dark spaces into the ceiling provides height, giving the illusion of an abundance of space.
The cozy living room brings light and function with the recessed lighting and built in shelving. A single onyx flooring band offers a distinction between the levels of this space, without looking out of place. Finishing the furniture in the same material as the dining room chairs gives the space a polished sense of sophistication without being over the top. These muted colors and light texture allow for a feel that’s warm and inviting.
Now it’s time to relax in this newly designed, split level space, complete with a professional design, all while leaving your in your zen place.
If this design makes you want to move right in, give a designer at the InStyle Flooring and Designs team a call. We can help custom create a full look for your home, office, bathroom, kitchen, and more.
