Look around your home, would you say it has a consistent style and design throughout? If the answer is "no" then you'll probably notice it looks pieced together instead of designed.

Your home should have a theme that is clear to anyone entering the door. Be it traditional or modern little things like complementary colors and matching baseboards adds style flow throughout your home. Following are some ways to unite the rooms in your home into a design that flows.

Windows should all be of the same style and materials. If you're replacing windows, do so in sections (e.g. front, side, back) when you're not able to do them all at once. This way the windows seen at a glance will match.

Any major style change in a given room should be followed by touch-ups in rooms within view. Others will notice the disruption in design and the result is unappealing.

Doors that can be seen from another should be changed to match and complement the other. While you're at it, molding should match from room to room as well.

In addition to using complementary paint colors, you'll want the texture on all of your walls to match. Do this by being consistent with drywall finish.

When making additions to your home, be sure it doesn't look like one. You should make it look like it belongs in the home. You can accomplish this by maintaining the same wall and ceiling texture for the addition as well as ceiling height.

Hardware and fixture finishes should be consistent. Got a stainless steel faucet? Complement finishes on door knobs, towel racks, cabinet handles, and appliances.

Giving your home a consistent style flow throughout will make your design work from one room to the next. The best compliment is sometimes none; that is, when a guest doesn't have to ask what you were going for style-wise.
