Does the Exterior Style of Your Home Affect the Interior Design?

The style of your home, overall, can play into the exterior and interior design. An example is if the outside of the home is Spanish Revival, a great way to incorporate it on the inside is using Spanish-inspired tiles and colors such as blues, red,s and yellows to accent the home.
By including aspects of the exterior inside, it creates a cohesive design throughout the home. There are also ways to design without incorporating the exact same style of the outside. If a house is more modern, designing it with farmhouse décor won’t heavily affect the theme.
The kitchen plays a big role in a home’s style because there are many different aspects to design. From the backsplash, flooring, countertops to the appliances, the theme is heavily seen in this part of the home. When it comes to colors being paired to the outside of the home, that’s not always necessary, only if it’s preferred. It’s always fun and creative to add a pop of personality to the interior with accent colors.
The fixtures in the kitchen can also tie into the exterior’s design through the finishes and styles.
Modern fixtures are one of the easier ones to match because of their sleek lines. This theme can be used in kitchen faucets, widespread faucets, pre-rinse faucets, specifically in finishes such as chrome and matte black.
Continuing a modern or any other chosen theme can be done through specialty faucets and accessories such as pot fillers, water filtration faucets, and soap dispensers. Finishing touches in the kitchen can be achieved through rugs of an accent color seen on the exterior or dish towels with a similar style that is seen throughout. Kingston has many options for faucets and fixtures to align with your home’s theme.
Now, the bathroom isn’t as large as a focal point in the house but it is certainly a crucial part of the design. The bathroom can instill common features of the chosen theme. The shower design is important in a bathroom and can be designed with an array of different tiles and finishes. From some as simple as white tile to dark tile with a bright shower head or tub faucet like polished brass or polished chrome. Like the kitchen, accent colors can be utilized in accessories such as rugs, hand towels, and décor. If the entire theme is centered around the exterior design of the home, it can be achieved through the accessories, tile, and colors.
Faucets and fixtures for the bathroom consist of the sink and vanity, sink faucet, shower and/or tub faucet, and accessories like shelving or towel racks.
These faucets and finishes are offered in numerous styles and finishes to blend into your home’s design seamlessly. As mentioned for Spanish-style homes, oil-rubbed bronze is a beautiful, dark color or polished brass that pairs well with Spanish-inspired tiles and colors.
Homes with modern or contemporary themes tend to lean towards more crisp finishes such as chrome or matte black. Farmhouse designs can use just about any finish. Chrome, matte black, bronze, brass, and nickel offer a nice hue to the features of craftsman or farmhouse bathrooms.
