Modern Furniture For a Modern Home
If you’ve recently moved or you’re just interested in giving your home a newer, more modern look – furniture is obviously going to play a significant role in the design process. When many people think modern, inviting and comfortable styles aren’t exactly what come to mind. Although modernizing your home is more about solid colors than it is about traditional “homey” prints – this doesn’t mean that the comfort of your home has to be compromised in the process.
Modern looking rooms are certainly much more popular today than they have ever been. This means that retailers have also picked up on the trend and are offering more modern style furniture in a bigger selection than ever. For example – coming across a solid black couch in more than one style in the past may have been a rarity. But now, you should be able to choose a modern piece of furniture and ensure that it is both the right size for your room and most importantly, that it’s comfortable. If you’ve chosen to go with bolder, brighter colors for your furniture – you’ll also find that these solid colored pieces are much easier to come by in most popular furniture retailers. This makes the shopping experience much easier for homeowners and also gives them the opportunity to choose from a bigger selection in the style that they’re interested in.
If you’re looking to create this clean, updated look in your home – staying away from intricately patterned pieces is going to be your number one concern. In most modernly styled rooms, colors are kept to a simple 1 to 3 palette basis and intricate patterns do nothing but complicate the otherwise simplicity of the room. Floral, multi-colored stripes, and even the traditional “Victorian style” patterning are going to put too many colors into the mix and end up complicating the overall décor. Although these are traditional patterns for furniture – creating a modern style home is all about breaking away from the past. By replacing heavily patterned furniture with solid colored couches and chairs – you’ll be able to create a sleek and clean look in your home.
Another common misconception with the “modern” style is that everything must be black and white. Especially recently, this has certainly not been the case. With the increasing popularity of adding “pops of color” to the room in big ways – black and white rooms have been complimented with bright red furniture or red accent pieces. Another direction to go in is to choose a bright color for the walls and then choose black or white accessories for the room depending on which style you’d like to create. Black accessories paired with a bright color work better for the bedroom or bathroom when you’re trying to create a more intimate setting, but if you’d like to create a more cheerful and upbeat feel – white accessories will certainly help to brighten and open up the room.
So whether you have a clean slate to work with or you’re sick and tired of your traditional style living room, consider this new and trendy look for your home. The small color palette will make the coordination process much easier and the simplicity will give you the freedom to make adjustments over time. By updating the look and feel of your room, you’ll be creating a space that has the potential to grow with you and your family over time.
