The living room is a very important part of your home. It’s the room people are likely to see a lot of. So, you have to make sure it looks good. In this piece, I’ve got some ideas that will give your living room a modern twist!
I think that every living room needs a coffee table. It doesn’t have to be massive, and small ones make a big difference. The trick is finding one that’s very modern in its design. You don’t want an old-fashioned coffee table because that will make the room feel old. But, a modern one will help to increase the appeal of the room. You can have it in the centre and add bits and bobs to it. Think about getting a classy coffee table book to place on it. Or, maybe some minimalistic candles to boost its design quality.
Laminate flooring is very ‘in’ right now, the days of carpet are over! Having a laminate floor in your living room will give a very modern vibe to it. It combines the class of a hardwood floor, with a unique modern twist. What makes it so great for a living room is that you have the option to add accessories to it. Something like a lovely teal rug would go great with a laminate floor. The colours go well together, but it also has other functions. It gives the room a more homely feeling while maintaining that modern edge. This is exactly the thing you’re looking for in the living room!
These days, interior designers recommend you throw away your patterned wallpapers. By patterned I mean ones with crazy designs and lots of colours. Instead, you should focus on the old saying ‘less is more’. Fewer colours and a more minimalistic design will work wonders for the interior of your living room.
Hanging art on your walls has become a big trend in the last few years. It’s one of the best ways to add a modern twist to your living room. However, you do have to be careful deciding on what art you’ll hang up. You focus should, obviously, be on contemporary art. I find that canvas paintings are super modern and look great. If possible, get some modern canvas art hung in your living room. Don’t put too much up, a couple of pieces will do the trick. They’ll bring the room together and make it look awesome.
Obviously, furniture is a very important part of the living room. Every living room will have a sofa or some chairs for people to lounge around in. The key is finding furniture that looks modern. Leather sofas are an example of modern looking furniture. But, you can also get non-leather ones that look just as great. Also, corner sofas are a great idea. They maximise space and look new and contemporary.
So, if you want to spice up your living room, use these ideas. They’ll take your room into the 21st century and give it a lovely new design. Perfect for anyone wanting to modernise the interior design of their home.
