Practical Modern Furniture Ideas for Your House
Achieving a striking, comforting, and inviting appeal in modern homes can be a little tricky. It isn’t always straightforward to curate your rooms to exude an exquisite taste that combines style, comfort, and functionality. You may be going for a hint of flashy or minimalist modern design, but there is that one piece that seems to be sticking out like a sore thumb.
Where do you get the much-needed inspiration to achieve a seamless and aesthetically inviting feel in your home? A crucial point that could help you turn the situation around is the furniture choices. Simple measures, such as taking a quick look at available items on FURCO could ignite your creative mojo, and before you know it, you’ve found the missing part to elevate your room’s looks. Here are a few ideas to get you started as you endeavor to give your home a modern look.
Brimming with colors
Furnishing and décor characterized by lovely pops of color continue to be a favorite, offering a contemporary style that can easily capture and satisfy even the hard-to-please eye. With white walls as the anchor to distribute the vibrant shades, for instance, a dark maroon sofa shade, coupled with a sky-blue armchair and a darker shade for the table, provides a gorgeous look in a modern living room. You can pick one brightly colored piece to be the focal point, and with seamlessly blending tones, design an astonishing and fully-functional room.
Two is better than one
Furniture pieces work well in pairs, especially as you strive to create symmetry. You’ve probably seen such layouts on the popular TV program Grand Designs, where a couple of side chairs complement the sofa’s positioning. This adds style to the room while enhancing functionality as the pair adds more sitting positions. This, however, doesn’t mean that you should go for a matching set. Find side pairs whose shade complements the sofa, and splash throw pillows to harmoniously create a colorful vibe.
Sticking to the walls doesn’t make it easier to capture that striking look. Unless you are restricted by the space, floating the furniture at the center creates a unique look, not to mention enhanced functionality, as you can strike better conversations than when they are spread across the room. This also eliminates the huge void usually left at the center of the room. For smaller rooms, you could play with the scale and bring in a sofa that commands the room. Sticking to smaller pieces might make the room look cluttered, but one statement sofa could enhance traffic flow, create enough seating room, and act as the focal point.
Consider the outdoors
Does your property boost of an incredible outdoors? If your view is inviting, you could consider minimalistic pieces of furniture to ensure that the view is not blocked. Minimal furnishing with clear lines and a simple color scheme, for instance, lets you focus on the outdoors, offering an inviting look to the room. As you browse through Wayfair‘s extensive collection, you can easily find such pieces with dark shades and simplistic designs.
Finding the inspiration to capture that modern look in your home doesn’t have to be challenging. Throwing in a few furniture pieces that match your taste, and that seamlessly blends with the rest of the room could be all you need to transform it into a picture-perfect space.
