Go Modern With Home Design
Designing your home can be an exciting and fun prospect and there is no better way to transfer this energy into your home than with a fresh modern style. Modern styling is an incredibly popular interior design trend that has its place in any home, whether you live in a traditional home or a brand new apartment.
The “modern style” is seen as one that embraces a light and uncluttered environment, but there are a wealth of design options at your disposal to put your own personal take on it. If you have a particular taste for classic materials then you can happily incorporate them into your design and even make them into a focal point without going against the idea of modern design. The important thing is to ensure you have a uniform style running through your home for continuity.
Often people associate modern interior design with coldness but there are plenty of touches you can add to mix things up a bit. Here are a few of our favourites!
Black Kitchen Units
When we think of modern kitchens we tend to think white and sterile but darker colours can be just as stylish. Opting for a black finish to your storage units can add some immediate cool points to your home and it is a colour that is a lot more inviting than you might think. These simple but bold choices are a great and unique way to add style to a room and they aren’t particularly drastic either.
The Right Flooring
When it comes to modern floors, wooden flooring is a necessity. There are a huge variety of wood finishes at your disposal from the cheap laminate to the likes of walnut. The benefits of wooden flooring are not only does it look good and help reflect light but also it is hardwearing and very easy to look after.
In the instance of choosing a walnut style finish you will also realise that these flooring options go with just about any interior design style and pieces of furniture. One of the best ways to create a modern home is to invest in wooden flooring and it is becoming more and more common for homes to be made with wood flooring over carpet.
If you want an eye-catching focal point to a room then look no further than a modern open fireplace. Whilst we love a traditional fireplace, they are often pretty difficult to incorporate into a modern style. Fireplaces happen to be one feature of homes that are always in fashion and there are a variety of styles to choose from that will perfectly compliment a minimal and clutter free home.
Once a fireplace was a staple of every home and nowadays it is becoming more rare but often it is what a lot of homes are lacking and it no longer has to be a feature that is up against the wall or one that takes up a considerable amount of space. Standalone fireplaces are often introduced into larger properties, such as a fire pit design that almost replaces the coffee table.
