Interior Design Styles You should know

There are a lot of different models of Interior designs, which include,

The Traditional Interior Design Model: This is simply a design model focused on traditional themes, it draws its inspiration from the 18th & the 19th Century, this design type is well known and popular, mostly found in classical homes. Personally I would mark this theme as expensive, both in taste and in cost. The cost is worth it, and is mostly popular with royalties or persons in government.

The Modern Design Theme: Design themes from the early 20th century are termed Modern designs, however there are a lot of distinctive factors that differentiate contemporary designs from modern designs, though the time period is a stand out factor, with modern interiors, decor is kept minimal and art is used for aesthetic pleasing..

The Transitional Design Theme: This Interior design theme is more of a bridge between contemporary interior and Modern Interior. It is a confluence of the two design themes to create something pleasing.

There are a whole lot of other types of design themes, which include eclectic, Minimalist and so on,
