Many people like contemporary décor for its simplicity, clean lines and open spaces. There are no complex ornaments or extravagant decorations. Every furniture piece is there because you cannot not put it where it is now. Moreover, many pieces of furniture were chosen for their multiple purposes. Therefore, you will find that contemporary style is indeed the perfect blend of functionality and absence of complication. We shall tell you here about the basics of modern decor.
1- Mirrors are magical artifacts you could use to your advantage when it comes to contemporary decor. Since they help at establishing the principles of open space and bright well lit areas, mirrors are necessary for modern décor. By using mirrors, you will also add a stylish sleek look to your space. In addition to that, mirror-like surfaces should be considered as well, such as glass covered surfaces and smooth metal surfaces.
2- Think “outside the box” when you are thinking about storage. Since modern décor embodies simplicity, distracting visual elements that could cause visual mess are kept to a minimum. So, almost every piece in contemporary design has a hidden storage. Ottomans used as coffee tables can be the perfect place for your storing magazines and remote controls, and beds have under drawers to store extra covers and blankets or even clothes. There are so many other examples of smart storage as well.
3- Focus on bright and neutral colors. Most of the colors used in contemporary designs are the lighter shades of neutral colors. Flowery, vibrant and dark colors are used here and there on occasion, but they are used only to brighten things up so that your place would not look too barren. So keep it bright and neutral.
4- redecorate the room according to your needs, because in the end you would have to keep everything simple. So if you are –for example- a family of three members, then you do not need a spacious living room or a dining room with a large dining table that consumes most of the space.
Contemporary décor center point and idea is simplicity, open space and clean lines. Make sure you maintain a sense of simplicity and to give your place a touch of freedom with modern style.
