3 Ways To Make Your Home Modern And Comfortable

Tuesday, February 8, 2022


People who desire a contemporary, on-trend home often believe that they must sacrifice comfort in order to have it. Those who prefer a comfortable house may believe that they cannot be trendy and stylish at the same time. However, the fact is that these two characteristics can coexist wonderfully, enabling both modernism and comfort to thrive in any house. Here are several ways to make that happen.

Use Golden Touches

Right now, gold is the most popular, most eye-catching, and most exciting finish for interiors. Silver, bronze, and brushed chrome have all been replaced by gold as the year's (and beyond) boldest design statement. You don't have to go all-out gold, but little tweaks here and there, such as replacing light fixtures, door furnishings, or kitchen cabinet hardware, can make your house sparkle without sacrificing any of its functionality or comfort. You might even want to search out modern furniture that has gold touches to it to keep everything in one style.

Splashes Of Color

Not long ago, people built homes to be beige, gray, and neutral. Times are, some would be pleased to hear, changing, and if you want to be as current and on-trend as possible, you'll need to include some color in your house. What you should not do is paint a whole room in a single bright shade since it will not only be too much, but it will also most likely make you feel uncomfortable, and you might never get used to it, meaning your house is hard to relax in.

Instead of painting the whole space, add little accents of vivid color. For example, you might paint one wall and leave the others white or cream. You might leave the walls alone or add color to the space with blinds or curtains, lampshades, and pillows. What's wonderful about doing this is that if you become bored of one shade, you can quickly switch it out for another.

Back The Bookshelf

Every house should have a bookcase. This is a stylistic as well as a general consideration – what house is whole without books? What you will need to do with your bookcase, though, is to create an eye-catching backdrop. Put wallpaper or a beautiful bright paint color behind it to make it stand out from the rest of the room. You could add decorations, pot plants, and even little photographs in frames to make it one of the most attractive but functional pieces in your house.

Buying a pre-made bookcase is not a problem, and if you don't have the time to create one yourself, this is the best option. Otherwise, you could go to a scrapyard or a thrift shop and see what they have. You don't have to purchase something that was initially a bookshelf; you could transform another piece of furniture into one. With a bit of care and attention (and a fair amount of imagination in some cases), old desks, ladders, and even tables can be repurposed into bookshelves that you can upcycle to look amazing.
