3 ways to incorporate British style into the design of your home

To help you out, we’re going to give you three of our top tips for decorating your home in a traditionally British style.

Furnish your home with high-quality, traditional pieces

Britain is known around the world for its expert craftmanship, so why not take advantage of this by furnishing your home with high-quality, traditional pieces? In the past, only the rich could afford to do this, but the market now offers a huge range of stunning furniture at relatively affordable prices. So, there are bound to be classic sofas, dining tables, cabinets, and armchairs that are comfortably within your budget.

Nothing exudes British charm quite like a Chesterfield sofa so, if you can’t decide what you should invest in first, this is a great place to start. And, don’t feel like you need to opt for a neutral colour like black or brown — you could choose a more distinctive colour and make your settee the showpiece of your room. British design is all about personality, after all.

Timeless Chesterfields is a brand that has been hand-crafting furniture for more than 35 years, and their Chesterfield sofas come in a wide range of fabrics, and an even wider range of colours. They can even create bespoke versions of their designs to fit the dimensions of your space.

Put some thought into dressing your curtains

When you’re redecorating your home, you’ll spend plenty of time picking paint for your walls and carpets for your floors. But, the smaller details are just as important, and you’ll have to consider how you would like your windows to be dressed.

When you’re going for a traditional British look, vertical blinds are the obvious choice, although Roman and venetian blinds can also work well. Pair any of these with floor-length curtains in a colour that complements the rest of your décor, and you’ll be set.

Inject a dash of art and culture into your space

Displaying books and pieces of art around your home was traditionally a sign of wealth, but anyone can decorate their space with the art and culture they love these days. Not only will this help to give your space a traditional vibe, but it also offers a way of injecting some of your personality and interests into your décor.

Fill your shelves with your favourite books or scatter a couple on your coffee table. Hanging some beautiful prints around your home is also a great idea, and you can buy a wide range of these online at affordable prices from Desenio.

If you’re a fan of traditionally British interior design, taking these tips on board will help you to inject a dash of this into your own home. By furnishing your space with high-quality heritage pieces, dressing your window with floor-length curtains, and adding some personality into your décor with art and culture, you’ll be well on your way.
