Interior Design Ideas for a Modern Interior

Interior design ideas for home interiors range from the very traditional right the way through to the ultra trendy modern interior of the future. If you want to achieve a sleek modern interior but don’t know where to start, here are my top 5 design ideas to start decorating your home:

  1. Make sure you concentrate on the lighting. This is a key element of all interior design and should be planned carefully in relation to the seating, windows and artwork. Modern interior lighting stores can be a huge help if you are unsure.
  2. The furniture you select may have unconventional shapes that look good in a modern interior, but try it out for comfort as well. If you can’t sit in a chair for any length of time it will spoil the effect of your well appointed room. Contemporary furniture can look great and be relaxing but make sure you find the right fit for you.
  3. Accessorising with modern art or pieces that have a contemporary feel may seem daunting, but it is easier than it may look. Select pieces that you enjoy! The space you are creating is not only a show piece, it is your home and a place where you want to relax.
  4. Window treatments need to have clean straight lines. This doesn’t mean you can’t have curtains, you just have to select a material that doesn’t have a fussy pattern or lots of frills and flounces. Interior design ideas for windows include roman blinds, sheer curtains, shutters or ordinary blinds.

Modern interior design is all about less being more so once you have your basics in place you will find that it is only a matter of small changes that will pull a room together. If you find that you do need advice, please call me: 01342 833600.
