Granny Flat Styles—Volume II: Scandinavian Style
1 Feb, 2018
Do you like to keep things simple when it comes to your home or granny flat? Do you want your granny flat to be both stylish and functional? Then the Scandinavian style is the right type of interior design for your granny flat.
When designing and decorating your granny flat in a Scandinavian style, there are unique features to consider. These key features include but are not limited to:
- Shades of grey and monochrome art
- Lighting—natural and electric
Timber is a key staple of Scandinavian style interior design as it can be used to add warmth and organic texture in almost any way. From furniture, to beams, to shelving, the possibilities are limitless, and not to mention cost effective.
Shades of grey and monochrome art:
While splashes of colours, especially blue, are “allowed” for Scandinavian style interior design, grey is known for being the staple colour. Grey can provide a wide variety of interior design benefits from a calming effect, to adding texture, to giving a granny flat a sleek look.
Along the same lines, monochrome art is also a key staple of Scandinavian style interior design as it can both match grey walls and features, as well as provide contrast to any splashes of colours that may be present.
Having plants in a Scandinavian style designed granny flat is another great way to add a splash of colour, and contrast grey features and monochrome art. Plants are also a great way to add an earthy vibe and life to the granny flat, getting plants that don’t require much watering or maintenance are the best way to go.
Lighting—natural and electric:
A Scandinavian style interior design staple that is popular and easy to achieve is lighting—both natural and electric. Natural light can easily be brought into a granny flat through strategically placed windows, while electric light can easily provide the desired effect through lamps, lanterns, candles and artistic ceiling lights.
So there you have it, now you know the key features to include when designing and decorating your granny flat to be both stylish and functional. If the Scandinavian style isn’t for you then stayed tuned for the next blog post on minimalist style interior design for your granny flat.
