Smooth Surfaces and Uncluttered Appearance of Modern Home Decoration
Clean, smooth surfaces and an uncluttered appearance characterize contemporary style interior design. The modern look is a world away from the fussy interiors beloved of our ancestors, but contemporary design doesn’t have to mean a home you’re afraid to live in. Shiny metal, polished wood and cool tile are the textures you’ll most often find in the modern home. Floors are most often wood or tile, although rugs are often used to add both warmth and color to a room. Chrome finishing on furniture and fixtures – particularly in bathrooms and kitchens – also help create a very modern look. To soften up this rather hard textural feel in your home, try adding some different textures: a faux-fur cushion, a velvet throw, or a set of silk drapes will make an interesting contrast to the rest of the look.
