Edmonton Interior Decorator | Top Design Trends | Love it Need it Gotta Have it

Everyone has their favourites. As an interior decorator, I've got a list about a mile long of things I love. Of course, they all belong into distinct categories. Here, I am sharing my TOP 10 Must-Haves for Home Interiors. All of these items will add style and functionality to your home: from the ceiling to the kitchen sink. Enjoy!

1. Coffered ceilings: Add instant drama and architectural interest to any room. Painting the ceiling a striking colour will elevate the drama to another level.

2. Built-in book shelves: Even if you read everything electronically, use these shelves to show off your prized possessions and collections.

3. Wainscoting: These panels will add elegance and sophistication wherever you choose to use them. Best in hallways and dining rooms.

4. Glass kitchen cabinet doors: Will make your kitchen seem more open and airy.

5. Herringbone floors: Instead of straight, lines have your flooring (tile or hardwood) laid in a herringbone pattern. Will make the room appear larger.

6. Horizontal striped walls: Cheap and easy way to add visual impact to a room. Experiment with colour and line thickness to achieve your perfect look.

7. Sliding barn door: A great way to create a division between rooms without needing the clearance of a regular swing-door.

8. Closet conversion: Take a regular closet and turn it into a functional and attractive space.

9. Subway tile: Classic and affordable. Great in kitchens and bathrooms alike. Available in a variety of colours.

10. Farm sink: No more fighting with small sinks to wash your over sized pots and pans.
