Why Every Detail Matters When Designing Your Home

By: Courtni Wisenbaker-Scheel

Any minimalist will tell you that every single possession and accessory in your home should serve a purpose and speak to who you are. Certainly, we donít all need to go to such an extreme lifestyle for this sentiment to ring true, though. That is why when you are designing your home you need to take the time to consider what most represents who you are, down to the very last piece. Here are four reasons why we at Modernize know that every detail matters when it comes to designing your home.

From Piecemeal to One of a Kind
The difference between your first apartment and your current home is cohesion. Like most everyone, you probably started off with a piecemeal of hand-me-down furniture and pictures that merely filled a need. Now, though, you are able to design a home to fit your aesthetic, and nothing speaks to that more than the details. Each light fixture and faucet give a little clue into what brings you joy, so be sure those clues are telling the right story.

Finishes the Look
Each room requires very specific furniture to serve a particular function, but more attention is needed to then make that room feel like a home. Something as simple as a Lake Geneva magazine rack and a Martin Tree of Life wood panel can transform a simple living room into a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired sanctuary. Consequently, find pieces that put an exclamation point on your room by filling the spaces with style.

Tells Your Life Journey
Some of the best accent pieces are ones that you have picked up throughout your life. Whether it is a quilt your grandmother made or a piece of pottery you found on a study abroad trip, these pieces are emblematic of your journey and should definitely be added in and around your home. It is details like these that personalize your home better than anything else.

Think of Every Guest
Your home isnít just for you alone. Itís a place for family to laugh, friends to share a meal, and your children to grow up. And years down the road, if these walls could talk, they would tell of all the memorable events that happened in your home. So when you are getting bogged down by the thousands of different door knobs to choose from, take a moment to picture what it will feel like opening your door to each of your loved ones with that particular knob. Then, decisions will start to makes themselves, and the attention to detail will make your home feel inspired.
