Modern Home Decorating Ideas

Modern home décor is often associated with shipshape and open spaces. Those who are oblivious to this particular style of interior decoration think of it as a mere conglomeration of white walls, glass tables, hard chairs, empty spaces, and gaudy couches in bright green. However, in fact, modern decorating though based on a minimalist approach and highly personalized eclectic style, is far from being blunt and empty. Furniture is placed to create comfy seating arrangements. Elegant accessories and artwork are brought in to accentuate each piece. It is marked for its elegance and fusion of vintage and state-of-the-art elements. If you are contemplating on hiring an expert to give your home a modern decor, then here is your deal. With these below mentioned modern home decorating ideas, you can quite comfortably incorporate elements of this coveted decor in your house, without frittering away your resources to fetch an expert.

Modern Home Décor Ideas

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Chuck out all the inessential items. Replace your heavy furniture with neat, multi-functional ones. As sofas seem too cumbersome, nowadays, they have been conveniently replaced by chairs which have sleek curves and look like sofas. Also the couches with geometric angles accentuate a modern home decor. The couches without arms are absolutely voguish. These couches arranged in "L" shape and decked with beautiful cushions add panache to the modern home decor. Bulky beds are obsolete and are no longer fit in a modern home.These old bulky beds need to be replaced with beds without headboards and footboards. Low height beds are the most in vogue, as they make the room look spacious and airy.

Colors such as white, gray, cream, silver, beige and black, are the most popular choices be it for the paint on the walls or the fabrics or the upholstery. To fend off banality, it is wise to go for white or cream color for the walls with a few new pieces of furniture in the room in bright red color. The furniture will certainly stand out in such subtle backgrounds. However, for a fanciful and vivid modern decor, you can go for a motley assortment of furniture as well. If you prefer, you can keep your furniture in basic color with cushions of all sorts of color on it. For further adornments hang few bright-colored wall hangings and paintings on the walls.

Flooring And Fabrics
Modern home flooring can be of hardwood, tile or concrete. Shiny white color tiles look particularly good in a modern living room. To add to the flamboyance, place some carpets and rugs on the floor. If the background of the room is in colors such as white, black and gray, go for bright-colored rugs having unusual geometric patterns, for a more ravishing modern interior decor. Placing a number of odd-shaped small rugs at various places in the same room will lend a dramatic touch to the decor. Go for fabrics in bold colors. As far as the fabrics are concerned having a consistent color and pattern, be it curtains, cushion covers, bedspreads, towels, etc. will impart a unified look. Nowadays, curtains with white, black or brown colored background have become immensely popular. To add a higher dimension to the décor, fetch curtains with some modern art design on them.

Accessories And Lighting
As far as choices of accessories are concerned for a modern home, it is better to go for those that have some well-defined geometric shapes to them. Round mirrors with a silver metallic frame, glass vases in some unusual angular shapes, sculptures in black or white color, and a collage made from black and white framed photographs of the family are some of the finest options for you regarding accessories. Furthermore, ceramic pots, sleek lamps, a metallic chandelier, contemporary black and white paintings will bring grandeur to the decor. Vases are important ornaments of home décor therefore keep a cluster of motley flowers. One more significant component of your home décor is the lighting. It plays a key role in the final look that your home exudes, so get a few metallic lamps, place then on either side of the sofa. Also, add a few spotlights, to highlight your favorite accessories in your modern home.

Some Other Considerations
There some other considerations for you to be made in order to pep up the entire decor. Make television the focal point in the living room. Place bookshelf with books properly arranged in one of the living room walls. Paint some horizontal stripes on the wall. Make sure the attached bathroom in the bedroom is made of glass. Lastly, have an arty centerpiece placed on the dining table, just below a metallic chandelier.

Quite obviously there is a plethora of elements which can add elegance to your modern home decor. Be certain of their suitability before you apply them to jazz up your modern home!
