The Modern Living Room

A modern living room articulates sophistication in a way that a cozy, cluttered country room cannot. Patchwork quilts and homemade photo frames are fine for some but if metropolitan is more your style there are a few things you should know, prior to creating your updated space.

Vibrancy of Modern living

Crisp lines, sharp angles and sleek furnishings are the quintessential features to any modern living area. This is especially true of the living room; which is typically the first room to welcome your guests. It should appear wide-open and sterile. Neutral colors or stark, white are generally chosen for the walls to enhance the spacious feel. The floor should be a dark, sleek hard surface. The main idea is to keep the walls and floor neutral; therefore causing vibrant accessories, like bright red toss pillows, to really pop. 

The less is more theory must be applied to achieve the perfect up-to-date look. Wall décor should be minimal or non-existent. The center of the room must remain open and clear. Again think, airy. For that same reason furniture is usually placed along the perimeter. Built-in entertainment centers and shelving give the wall a flush, tidy look while allowing you to keep the room functional. Today’s electronics fit nicely into the scheme of things with the advent of flat-screen televisions and wireless devices. 

Just because you have opted to keep the clutter to a minimum does not mean it will be necessary to shorten your usual guest list. You can easily slip black, director-style chairs into a closet to be used when more guests are expected. There are many models and styles of foldable, furniture available. Be sure to choose upscale pieces in black, white or chrome depending on your permanent décor. Glass or high-gloss, black tables can instantly add to a space-age look. They tend to provide the required pleasant factor to your living room.


Tools that encapsulate Modern living

Lighting is also quite an important factor when designing the modern living room. Soft, warm lighting is often used to offset the neutral color scheme, giving the room a more balanced ambiance. Wall scones, recessed ceiling fixtures and free standing lamps are excellent ways to incorporate subtle lighting. However, don’t neglect to show off Mother Nature’s ability to shine. Choose closed, white sheers or thin roman shades, over your windows, to diffuse natural daylight. As, this daylight will bring up the perfect soothing style for the living area. 

Though the room you create will be considered modern; the stylish, beauty and contemporary, splendor will remain timeless. These are some of the gracious tools that stay with your room almost forever. They pertain to provide just what you need making your living the perfect place to be for get together, family time and any more social events.
