Essential Advice: How To Create A Stylish Modern Living Room
Interior design is never easy, and whatever style you go for it’s important to add your own personal touches to your room, whether it’s through colours schemes or art on the walls. If you’re looking to create a really sophisticated and contemporary looking living room, then these top tips could help you achieve perfection.
Stuff. We’ve all got loads of it and our living rooms seem to be magnets for clutter, whether it’s hoards of ornaments or piles of DVD boxes. When it comes to creating a contemporary living room, space is vital to the new look.
Space-saving cabinets can minimise clutter and stylish hanging shelves as an alternative to bookcases can open up plenty of floor space.
Install Neutral Wood Flooring
Wood flooring is a big part of creating that neutral and minimalistic look, which is key to modern living areas. Here at Wood Floor Surbiton, we specialise in high quality bespoke wood flooring that can really help create a stunning contemporary living room. Our Select and Nature ranges are a perfect fit for the modern feel, with a variety of lacquer finishes available to give it that extra shine.
Choose Minimalistic Lighting
Having plenty of space is just one aspect of the minimalistic feel that modern living rooms create. Avoiding bulky light fittings or floor lamps helps to create the illusion of lots of open space, and will complement the neutral look created by soft wall colours and your natural wood flooring.
Recessed ceiling and wall lights take up no outward space due to being flush with their surfaces, and floor lamps with a thin base can help provide extra light while still adhering to the minimalistic specifications of the room.
Use Strong Geometric Shapes
Squares and corners are integral to modern interior design – from sofas to shelves and cabinets to electronics, straight lines are key to making everything feel like it ‘fits’ in the room and helps you maximise space.
