Modern Interior Designs
If you are looking for a new, clean, organised design for your home, you may want to take some time and read about the modern interior style.
The modern style has been growing in popularity over the last few years. The style is mostly clean with straight lines, a simple color palette, and the implementation of materials such as metal, glass, and steel.
There are a few things you should know about the style before decorating:
- lack of any sort of fluffy objects
- clean lines in horizontal furnishing
- natural woods
- natural materials
- steel, chrome or glass surfaces
- natural color palette
- celebration of natural light and unadorned windows
Walls and floors
Before you start planning your room arrangements, you have to think about the basic procedures when building your house, like:
- Walls – the color, texture, and window arrangement.
This interior style is known to come with a simple color palette with light colors, such as beige or white, sometimes a light shade of gray.
However, with the wall texture, you must be very careful as too much will ruin the whole style. If you aren’t sure if the texture will match, it’s better to leave plain walls.
Another very important thing to keep in mind is the window layout. Windows bring lots of light into rooms and this carries a lot of advantages. Remember that a dark room will minimize space.
- Floors – natural materials.
Interior designers say that it’s best not to coordinate a couple different floorings because it might not look aesthetically pleasing. Try keeping the same kind of floor in every room, at least at the same level. Modern styles like to present themselves with natural materials, so the flooring could be made of bamboo, marble or even concrete.
Modern designs are walking away from heavy designs and textures. That’s why it’s very important to keep in mind the straight lines with no additional texture that are used for furniture. Look for furniture made from wood and steel. Anything basic like a glass table that will provide the room visual appeal. With furnishings, you can plan things like:
- Open floor plans with few walls
- Oversized tiles
- Sanded wood floors
Avoid clutter at all costs!
There’s no point in incorporating a modern interior into your home if you are just going to clutter it. Modern interiors are all about minimalism. Yes, this means no collections, vases or pillows laying everywhere. When it comes to books or electronics, they also should be kept inside a cabinet or closet.
For some of us, it may seem hard to keep everything at home in order, hidden, especially with kids around. However, providing built-in shelves or hidden storage places will help you understand that minimalist homes are much better and more comfortable because of all the extra space.
Modern design definitely have more than one definition. As is the case with all other styles, along with the increase in the modern style’s popularity, some ideas are added and some are taken back. The battle to define the modern style will probably continue for a while. For now, enjoy what the current iteration has to offer.
