Do you want a sleek, modern looking home? There are a few specific things that people associate with modern homes these days. Usually, it’s all about practicing simplicity and minimalism. This post will give you 10 ideas that you can implement in your home to make it instantly more modern:
Minimalist Office Space
If you need an office in your home, don’t let it get cluttered. Minimalist office space is perfect for a modern home, but how do you do it? You need to get a floating desk, which will take up less space and look better. A ‘ghost’ chair (see through perspex) will also make your office look roomier.
Open Kitchen Shelves
If you can keep your kitchen shelves tidy, then there’s nothing better than open shelves. Everything will be on display and very simple for you to grab at a moment’s notice. Some people even have open food cupboards!
White is probably the most modern color there is...it’ll never go out of style. Paint everything white and perhaps add a splash of color with accessories if you want to. Neutrals always look classic.
Open plan homes create more space and are much more social than other homes. If you have a small house and want to make it appear larger, make it open plan!
The kitchen isn’t just a place to cook these days. People use it as a room for everything, even working and socialising. A kitchen island ensures you have enough space to prepare your food, enough space to work, and space to chat. It’s in the centre of the kitchen too so it’s perfect for when you have guests.
There are plenty of modern interior lighting ideas you can go for. Lights that are installed right in the ceiling save space and look fresh. You could also go for a sleek looking chandelier if you want to add an element of sophistication. Your options are endless!
Flowers and plants instantly freshen up your decor, add color and life. Plants last longer than flowers, so choose one you feel you can maintain.
Having a modern breakfast bar to enjoy your morning meal is the stuff dreams are made of. I’m surprised they didn’t include it in ‘Back to the Future’. Who wants to eat their breakfast at an old fashioned table anyway?
Turns out, it isn’t only modern to have your food on display. It’s modern to have your clothes on display too! If you can keep them neat and organised, hanging them on an open rail can look awesome.
