Are you bored of living in the same house for the past many decades? Do you want to change it but don’t want to relocate? Well, you are not alone who feels this way. As the clothes’ and shoes’ trends come and go, similarly the trends of home décor come for a certain period and leave. But the good thing is every trend leaves the door open for new ones to enter. That is how all kinds of design industries work and survive.
This blog will take you to all the hidden areas of transforming your traditional home into a modern one.
Today we have many interior design trends on our shelves that are not only redrawing the pictures of a perfect “Home Sweet Home” but also helping people connect their living spaces with their personalities. Without further ado, let us get straight to our first tip!
- Start with the Furniture
The furniture is the most prominent thing in any home of any style. The traditional practice of buying all the furniture items in the same colour and design has to be ruled out to bring a modern feel to your house. Get yourself out of that concept of matching everything and drag in some contrasting furniture with different colours and textures.
- Be a Little Bold
(By bold, we mean Strong) It will be very difficult for you to shift from traditional to modern until you are not ready to bring some boldness to your space. Try to replace that muted beige wall colour with some dark and bold colours to make your space sharpen.
- Bring Some Architecture Inside
Architecture is not only about the fixed walls and roofs of your house. For a modern to a contemporary look, you need to pull in some architectural shapes in space and scatter them around. Frames and wall arts of different shapes, lines, or circles will do the work for you.
- Leave a Breathing Space
We know in a family of five, besides household things, everyone has their own belongings, which scream for a space. But that doesn’t mean that you line up every little thing from the doorway to the bedroom on display. Modern houses require breathing spaces. For example, do not keep the center table too busy to breathe.
- Update the Fixtures
Until you don’t change those old fixtures with new trendy ones, your place will keep calling itself “Traditional” no matter how hard you try. You can add some brilliant but well-thought lighting in your home to achieve modernism. You can also upgrade your old-fashioned fans, faucets, rack, and cabinet doors with the most stylish and sleek ones.
- Textiles that Talk About the Trend
Modern decoration also requires you to try new textiles for curtains, sofas, sheets, and covers that carry an image of fashion and novelty. Do not use too busy prints to avoid creating disturbance and chaos.
