5 Home Interior Design Ideas

Written by: Penny Siml on Wednesday, February 28, 2018


Have you noticed just how much custom home interior design ideas are out there? A quick search on Google, Pinterest, and Houzz will reveal hundreds of ideas for you to try and sift through. It can actually be overwhelming to narrow down the ideas you love from the ideas you like. To help you in your search, though, we’ve found 5 home interior design ideas that you might not have come across in your search, but should definitely consider for your custom home:  

Incorporate a strip of tile into the flooring in front of your cabinets.

Using a strip of tile in front of your kitchen cabinets actually accomplishes several home interior design ideas. The first thing this strip of tile does is break up the visual aesthetics of the room. By adding in another element to your kitchen, you can make it more visually appealing. In addition to that, the strip of tile, as far as interior design ideas go, will keep the rest of your floors more protected. Because of where the tile is placed, it’ll take the brunt of the damage when something falls off the counter and as you’re working at the counter.

A coffee station is a luxury you can incorporate into any kitchen.

If your morning routine has to include a cup of coffee, then a coffee station is an absolute must as far as home interior design ideas are concerned. While a full-blown coffee bar may not be in your custom home kitchen plans, there’s no reason a coffee station can’t make its way into the design. Simply designating a small, accessible area of your counter will be sufficient enough for a coffee station. Leave enough room for your favorite brewing devices, mugs, and freshly roasted beans

Color-coordinating finishes and accessories is simple, but makes all the difference.

Sometimes, finding the perfect kitchen sink faucet to match the backsplash seems nearly impossible. Will brushed bronze or nickel look better? Should you go for a modern design or a rustic take on the faucet? It can help, sometimes, to take a step back and go with one color for both the finishes and accessories in a room. For instance, you could use white flooring and cabinets in the guest bathroom, but use black for the wall coverings, accent pieces, and finishings.

Use a spare closet for an entire crafting sanctuary.

Love crafting, but can’t dedicate an entire room to your favorite supplies? No problem! This is exactly what spare closets were made for. With the right storage solutions and a little bit of lighting, you can easily transform an extra closet into a crafting sanctuary. Sure, you won’t be able to use the closet for a workspace, but it does mean easy access to your favorite crafting supplies.

Make your laundry room even more usable by adding a bathroom.

If your custom home floor plans call for a large utility, mud, or laundry room, give the space even more purpose by including an extra, full bathroom. This is a great place for guests to shower in or your own family when all of the other bathrooms are being used. It’s a great place to shower off after an afternoon swim, a morning jog, or soccer practice. Along the same lines of never having too much storage space, can you really go wrong with another bathroom in your home?
