Contemporary interior design is one of the most fascinating and, interestingly, most varied design themes and absolutely depends on the individual’s interpretation of it.
Often confused with modernism, contemporary design is far less specific and not held to a particular period and just represents present-day fashions and trends.
So, if you want to give your home a more contemporary design feel, continue reading.
Statement Stone Features
Stone and marble are two highly impactful, beautiful, and highly sustainable natural materials that scream contemporary design. To make a huge difference in the transition from traditional to contemporary, then statement stone is an ideal choice.
A shower unit is a perfect example of where statement stone can both metaphorically and quite literally shine, especially if you take the time to book-match the pieces. Hence, they combine to create a symmetrical yet natural image.
Bold & Bright Colors
For the smallest room in your home, or else if you are living in a somewhat ‘intimate’ space altogether, instead of finding ways of trying to make the space look larger than it actually is, embrace the space and make it the star of the floor.
Kitchens in townhouse apartments, for example, tend to be on the smaller and narrower side, so introducing one or two (complementing) colors to make your smaller spaces pop is a confident way of announcing your new contemporary design direction.
Keep Fixtures & Fittings Hidden
Lighting is at its best, especially in a contemporarily designed space, when it is of a flexible and interchangeable nature, either with dimmer switches or hidden LED strips, and when the room is unoccupied, or else there is no need for lighting, the fixtures and fittings should be subtle.
Directing the point of illumination to a specific part of the room, such as the top of the bathtub, is a fantastic way to adhere to a contemporary design framework while highlighting your favorite décor details. You can find the perfect lighting options at Ligne Roset Bromley to match any room or style of décor.
A Television House
Although numerous elements come together to create an apartment or house that looks and feels decidedly contemporary in style and design, there is one shortcut you must take to fulfill your own brief.
Hiding the television in either an ornate cabinet or in a high-tech way in which, when operational, the unit rises from a hidden base is an absolute mainstay of contemporary interior design.
Finally, perhaps the easiest change to make from a more traditional to a decidedly more contemporary interior design feel in theory, sadly not in reality, is to keep each room as clutter-free as possible.
This can often be more difficult if you have small children, as you will need to have a lot of their things to hand. If you can strike a balance between functional and a clear aesthetic within your home, this could be effective way of bringing your home décor and design up to date.
