Next, we will present 7 interior design styles that may work for you.

1.Nordic.
A very heard style these days, since it is very trendy these days. The origin of this type of decoration is found in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, where sunny days are rare and because of this a way was sought to replace this lack of light. The solution was to place light colors and elements related to nature, such as furniture and wooden elements to provide more cheerful and welcoming places. In addition, they use neutral colors such as light grays on the walls, due to the similarity of the sky of those pale cloudy countries.

Another characteristic that stands out is its simplicity and straight lines, use of geometric figures such as squares that give a distinctive touch to the space. In the rest of the decoration, green plants and flower prints predominate.

2. Scandinavian.
Its origin occurs in northern Europe and is even very similar to the Nordic one, as it also seeks to bring light into homes in environments with little sun. Precisely hence the preference for light tones on the walls.

It represents clear, clear spaces, especially white that transmits peace and tranquility. The ceiling, floor, walls and furniture are usually in the same color or very similar tones.

Furniture and decorative elements usually have light wood colors such as beige and gray, in combination with metals, or tones of stones and natural fibers. Vintage style furniture looks great in this decoration.

3. Minimalist.
The famous phrase “less is more” is born from the minimalist style and this type of trend works perfectly for people who like clean, serene, simple and orderly spaces.

Glossy woods or black furniture that give a feeling of opulence are the key in this type of decoration. Smooth surfaces, glass or ebony-like, predominate. Although it is usual for furniture and few decorations to be in colors similar to the paint on the walls, contrasting elements can also be used with black elements.

4. Rustic.
If you are looking to bring rural characteristics to your home this is definitely the right style for you.

This will make a particular place very natural, with a bit of roughness, an old essence and naturalness, since it is very important to have elements such as vintage furniture or accessories to give it that special touch. Also, having large, wooden furniture and decorative accessories with natural finishes will provide the character of this style.

Remember that the walls should have cold tones that provide luminosity, but add a mix of warm colors to provide contrast, warmth, comfort and well-being. The floor must contain natural materials such as wood, stone, clay, wicker and ceramics.

5. Modern classic.
A classic style will never go out of style, especially because it will always provide elegance and sophistication. However, in order not to be left behind, it is important to add a modern touch so that the interior of your home is on trend and updated.

The walls and furniture should have classic and smooth shapes. For this reason, choose materials such as stone or marble. In addition, you can add glass to some place or furniture. You will see that it will improve the space and provide modernity.

6. Industrial.
Also known as urban, it is inspired by a warehouse or a loft in big cities. It emerged in the 50's when large cities like New York or Chicago were increasing large factories and young people began to live there.

Brick walls, exposed beams and pipes, concrete floors and ceilings, are the starting point to create this type of environment.

The furniture used in industrial home decoration styles is made of metal or iron, and can even be seen with a little rust on it. Likewise, untreated wood and veneers are used. You cannot miss one or two decorative pieces such as paintings or photographs to add a touch of color to an environment with opaque or pale colors since the color gray is mainly used. However, it is highly important to have a large window so that a lot of light enters and the place does not look too dark.

7. Art Deco.
If you like sophistication and glamor inspired by Velvet or The Great Gatsby of the 20's. This type of interior design is characterized by rich colors, geometric shapes, geometric lines, particularly rectilinear ones, and monochromatic palettes with powerful details that only play with tones. We recommend using bright colors such as gold, blue or yellow. In addition, the use of glass materials, shiny fabrics, metallic paints and mirrors will complete the style.
