Decorating Ideas For A Modern Theme

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Are you thinking about changing your home’s look with a more modern, chic interior design? You’ve come to the right article! Going contemporary is not at all expensive. Utilizing more trendy home items can be cost-effective too, especially if you visit budget-friendly retail outlets like dollar stores, garage sales, thrift or secondhand shops and other discount establishments. You can also apply some DIY creative methods to add decors to your modern interiors.

First of all, you have to deal with the walls. Pull down that border! Make sure you get it all. Painting over it will cause lumps and may cause peeling. If you painted the walls with blue or white, you are in luck, you will not need to paint as much. Light blue is super hot right now. When paired with a deep chocolate brown it looks amazing and very modern. You can paint stripes or symmetrical shapes on the wall, or even just paint the trim brown. White and bright works too. Simply choose a couple of your favorite bright colors to use as accents. Either way the colors will look fantastic.

Furnishings can be quickly transformed to modernize your country style home. Try purchasing furniture coverings in your color scheme for an instant facelift. The nice part about country furnishings is that they are comfortable and comfort does not go out of style, just the print covering it. If your furniture is too worn out to even cover, shop around at thrift stores and auctions to find something that is solid enough for recovering.

Country theme boasts of the abundance of wooden decorations. As you go modern, so do your decors. Utilize shapes and patterns this time. Hang modern artworks and up-to-date accents, such as a fancily-shaped ashtray, colorful bean bags and multi-purpose ottomans. Be more creative with frames and wall hangings.

Displaying pretty decors such as candles can also enhance the room even more. Modernity tells of various shapes, colors and sizes, therefore capitalize on these as you decorate your home. The more colors and shapes there are, the more trendy your home will look.

Changing your home’s look can also be done by adorning your floors with area rugs. Rugs also come in different themes from traditional to modern and conservative to trendy. The variations in colors alone can add the needed boost to make your home look very current. A large area rug with geometric designs positioned in the center of the room will complement the modern artworks adorning the walls and the stylish decors in the room. Similarly, smaller rugs spread throughout the room in complementing colors and varying shapes can make a huge difference.

These are simple steps needing only simple things. Don’t be afraid to experiment with a new theme. Deciding on a modern premise is indeed timely. After all, we are living in a time where modernity is greatly revered. What a nice way to go with the prevailing style even in home decorating.

Keep up with current Interior Design styles and enhance your home with transitional area rugs.
