Bring A Touch Of Class Into Your Home

home-1438305_960_720.jpg

Over the last few years, there's been a push towards rustic, shabby chic design trends. A lot of the interiors that this style has inspired have been utterly beautiful, creating a wonderfully rural, cozy-cottage sort of feel to any home. But that kind of style is on it's way out and what's replacing it is a slightly more refined sense of taste. Class is the order of the day now, and there's nothing like bringing in a sense of decorum to make your home feel more inviting and comfortable. Now, a lot of you are probably assuming that this means that you need a palace level home in order to achieve this kind of interior design style, but that's simply not true. Just about any home can become a haven of class and style by following a few simple pieces of advice. With that in mind, here is how you can bring a touch of refinement to your home.

Invest in high-quality furniture

Nothing makes a home look cheap or drab that furniture that is clearly designed to only last a year or two at most before completely and utterly falling apart. If you really want your home to start feeling classier, then it's important that your furniture reflects that ideal. Something like a chesterfield sofa is a classic design that is guaranteed to bring that classic feeling of opulence and dignity to any home. Not only do pieces of furniture like this look fantastic but they're incredibly comfortable and are much more likely to serve you well for years to come than something cheap and cheerful from somewhere like ikea.

Use your space wisely

When you're working with a rustic, shabby aesthetic, then you have some wiggle room when it comes to how you use your space. There's a certain degree of charm to a slightly cluttered, busy looking design when you're dealing with this kind of style. But when you're trying to bring more class into your home then it's important to focus on the way that you're using the space around you. Focus on clean lines and symmetry in the way you decorate as well as leaving good amounts of open space for people to move around. The more than you can make your home feel more spacious and open, the better.

Never underestimate the power of lighting

The lighting in your home might seem like a fairly small thing that you surely don’t need to focus on that much, but you'd be astonished at what a difference it can make. The wrong lighting can make even the nicest home feel drab, dingy and unpleasant. Make sure that you strike the right balance between bringing enough light into each room and creating the most pleasant and relaxing ambiance possible. Lamps are a great way to achieve this but can sometimes take up a lot of space. Finding a beautiful ceiling fixture is one of the most effective ways to take a room;s central light and turn it into a show stopping piece of decoration.

I am sure you know a few other ways to bring a touch of class into your home.  If so, please share in the comments.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
