Elements of a Modern Home

Elements of a Modern Home


As you’re starting to learn, a modern interior design can be a tricky look to pull off. From the furniture to the paint color, every decision should be carefully thought out to achieve the right style. However, don’t let these decisions keep you from creating your dream home! If you’re struggling trying to give your space a modern look and feel, just keep in mind these important elements:

Clean lines

When you’re looking for furniture – whether it is couches, tables, cabinets or light fixtures – always look for pieces constructed with clean lines. Neat lines present a sharp, no-fuss look that will help add to the modern styling of the room.

Clean lines are often straight, but they don’t necessarily have to be. The term “clean lines” just means that they’re simple and straightforward rather than intricate or decorative. A curve here or there isn’t going to detract from the modern design.

Attention to detail

When it comes to creating a modern home, details matter. Everything from the big couches to the coasters on the coffee table should be carefully considered.

After the room is decorated, make sure every piece of decor looks like it belongs – like you put it there for a very specific reason. Even the magazines or books should fit in with the overall style of the room.

Bold colors

In modern design, less is usually more. Therefore, it’s important that you make every piece and color count. Rather than decorating with soft, light colors, go bold! Contrasting colors like black and white make up many modern home interiors and present a striking look. Add pops of color throughout the room with a brightly colored piece of furniture or wall art.

Overall, just remember: keep it simple. Simplicity is the overarching element that will guide you through your decorating process.
