Townhome living is trending. Read up on the tips that can turn your home into a modern abode.

Townhome living is on the rise. And because of this, so too are decorating trends that understand the urban aesthetic. From versatile furniture to energy saving light fixtures that focus on highlighting what matters most, discover the key trends and tips that will turn your townhouse into a dream home.


From placement and choice of fixtures to bulb types such as LED, there are more options than ever before. And few aspects of design have a greater impact on day-to-day life as lighting. It impacts our mood, making us feel happy, relaxed, even alert. Perhaps most importantly, high-efficiency lighting saves us money and energy, allowing us to light more for less. It also can help to highlight a space, creating more visual impact.


When it comes to the modern abode, it’s essential to maximize space for storage or personal style. From hanging shelves over appliances to floating corner bookshelves, adding units to unique areas can add distinction to your space and also create extra room for storing goods or showcasing artwork.


Stainless steel appliances have dominated the market for quite some time. And there’s a reason for that. This sleek, eye-catching look is an easy way to modernize your urban abode. Every kitchen design for The Way comes standard with stainless steel appliances, making it easier than ever to stay on trend.


One of the best (and easiest) tricks in the design world is adding a full-body mirror to visually expand a space. Mirrors bring light and depth into rooms — they’re like decorative windows. Mirrors also have several design benefits, reflecting and emphasizing views and colours from adjacent artwork, even creating special effects with the use of light. It’s a way to add an element of awe to your abode.
