Modern Interior Design Tips

PowerPoint Presentation:

Interior design is one discipline that can have a profound effect on the look, feel and perception of your home. Even if a home is larger or in a more desirable neighbourhood, if the design aspect is lacking so will people’s perception. Interior design using modern furniture, concepts and accessories is a great way to keep your home with the times or boost the resale value if you’re looking to sell. Here are some modern interior design tips that will make your home look great.

Modern Design Through the Years:

Modern Design Through the Years First, here’s a quick list of some of the more popular modern furniture and design styles since 1900: Gothic Revival (1851-1914) - natural materials and designs. Art Nouveau (circa 1900) - based on flowing lines and influenced by Japanese art. Art Deco (1918-1939) - lots of colours and patterns; influenced by cubism and primitive art. Bauhaus (1919-1933) - more technological, man-made items.

Through the Years cont…:

Through the Years cont… International Modern (1925-1947) - no regional, or historic influences; focus on machine-age technology. High Tech (1980-1990s) - lots of emphasis on machines and science and technology. Adirondack (1890s - present) - rustic and natural-looking wood pieces. Helps to create a lodge type of look and feel.

Don’t Be Afraid of Colour:

Don’t Be Afraid of Colour In modern interior design, colour is your friend and you shouldn’t shy away. If you really want to dive into modern design and use modern furniture, get on board with the bright colours and unconventional shapes that are used. It’s not uncommon to see accent colours like yellow, purple, orange, red and green in things like throw pillows, bowls, painted or papered accent walls and vases.

Make It Personal:

Make It Personal Even though some modern furniture and design concepts may seem unorthodox, it’s important to fit your own identity in there, as well. Take the time to make your space personal, so there is no doubt that it belongs to you. This may include your favourite colours, or accessories that show your interests and hobbies. Another strategy is to include your specific tastes in clothing in your interior design.

Consider the Space:

Consider the Space Before you really get into the planning and implementation, it’s important to consider the space so you are comfortable and familiar with the size and layout of each room. Every design will have limitations in some area, so figure out what yours are before you get too far into it.

Keep Comfort In Mind:

Keep Comfort In Mind Some modern furniture may look sleek and colourful and stylish, but if it isn’t comfortable it will ruin the whole effect. Keep in mind that you want this furniture to sit on and for your guests to sit on. If it uncomfortable no one will ever feel relaxed in the space, including you.

Keep It Simple:

Keep It Simple A cluttered space is a huge mistake, no matter how stylish and modern your furniture is. Using too many pieces and accessories will make the room look smaller and can create anxiety for anyone not fond of small spaces. It’s ok to exclude or get rid unnecessary items that you rarely use and are making the room or rooms look cluttered.
