5 BASIC IDEAS OF MODERN HOME DECOR

5 BASIC IDEAS OF MODERN HOME DECOR

HOW TO DO MODERN HOME DÉCOR 

If we had to choose one word to describe modern home décor, it’s “simple.” Modern décor features clean lines, a neutral palette, and geometric shapes, which may sound boring, but it’s really anything but. Modern home décor is warm, inviting, and stylish in any home, so if you want to upgrade yours with a modern twist, here are several design elements you’ll need to include. 

1. SIMPLICITY

Now, we’re not talking four bare walls and a chair here, but modern home décor is simple and minimalistic. Studies have shown that clutter can lead to stress, which is something modern home décor does not contribute to. 

As you go about redecorating, remember that less is more and try to keep things as clutter-free as possible. 

2. FUNCTIONALITY

Functionality is important in modern home décor. In addition to the clean lines and clutter-free spaces, you also want to make sure your room(s) are easily identifiable as to their use and that their various features and elements are easily accessible. 

For example, a modern kitchen will have plenty of workspaces, and all its equipment and tools will be readily available. 

3. TECHNOLOGY

What is modern décor without technology? Technology is a huge part of everyday life, so it makes sense that it should be part of your modern home décor. It’s not enough to just say “technology,” though, but rather, technology that is streamlined (think flat-panel TVs and built-in computers) to keep those clean lines modern home décor is all about. 

4. OPEN SPACE

This design element may not be possible in some homes, but modern home décor has an open and airy vibe. Large, open rooms with light color palettes and plenty of natural lighting work to create that feeling of freedom and openness that modern home décor is known for. 

Even if your home has small, enclosed rooms, you can create that feeling of openness by using light, neutral colors and keeping windows uncovered to allow as much natural light to flood the space as possible. You can also hang mirrors on the wall to reflect the light, which will add depth to the room and make it appear larger than it actually is. 

5. CHARACTER

Although modern home décor’s main focus is neutral, there’s no reason not to explore your wild side by adding a pop of color here and there for character. An accent wall painted a nice red or throw pillows in a bright yellow can add just the right amount of fun to an otherwise neutral palette for an exciting touch. 

Creating modern home décor isn’t difficult, and you have a lot of room for creativity and personality. All you need to do is remember these five design elements and you’ll be able to achieve the modern décor you want in your own home.
