One of the easiest ways to make sure your furniture is timeless is to choose pieces with a clean style. This means avoiding anything too fussy or complicated. Stick to straight lines and simple shapes. This doesn’t mean that your furniture has to be boring, though! You can still choose pieces that are interesting and unique. Just make sure they have a clean look.

  1. Get Rid of Clutter

Less is more is a golden rule for timeless modern design and we stand by it (except for when we don’t). Another way to make sure your home looks timeless is to get rid of clutter. This means getting rid of anything that you don’t use or need. If you have a lot of knick-knacks, consider putting them in storage.

The less stuff you have, the more timeless your home will look. You’d likely be aiming for a cleaner, more innovative aesthetic.

  1. Use Neutral Colors for your furniture pieces

Whites, greys, blues, and browns never go out of style. They have a timeless and fresh charm that you could channel long-term in your space. Even more importantly, their neutral base ensures that they’re easy to accessorize! You can still add pops of color with accessories and furniture. But by keeping the main furniture neutral, you’ll create a timeless base.

  1. Switch things up with easily changeable accessories

You could add a bright set of vibrant pink or teal throw pillows, blankets, and table decor, for example. Or you could add trendy patterned throw accessories and artwork. By allowing that kind of flexibility with timeless interior design elements, you’d be setting yourself up for a reliably fresh space.

We recommend seasonal changes! Fall, spring, or summer-themed accessories could make your space spirited yet steady.

  1. Get earthy furniture and decor

Nature-inspired looks are great for timeless home decor. Wood pieces are especially recommended for this: their charm is light and fresh, and at the same time cozy and organic. You could go for a rustic wood table or stool, some stone-looking vases, and greenery in woven baskets. The options are endless!

  1. Be detail-oriented

Put thought into your interior design – what is something you’d love in your space long-term? What would create a functionally pleasant space? Think about mirrors, candles, art objects, dressers, and end tables.  All these details come into play when creating a timeless space!

Take your time in choosing each item. Not only will this make sure you love everything in your space, but it’ll also help you create a timeless design that you won’t grow tired of anytime soon.

  1. Blend styles into something you love

Your space is going to be yours. Instead of keeping with trends and specific styles, blend styles eclectically while maintaining a clean aesthetic. This could look like wooden dressers with metallic accents, or a contemporary style sofa with a coffee table. Get the lamp you love and the mirrors you adore. There are no rules.

By following these tips, you’re sure to create a home that looks fabulous and feels like an oasis – no matter what the trends are!

If you are just starting to figure out how to keep your interior design timeless and are afraid to invest money into furniture, you could always choose to rent. At Inhabitr Furniture Rental, we have a wide variety of styles: you’re super likely to find what you’re looking for.
