Getting to Know Modern Room Design

Jul 21, 2008
Among young professionals, modern design is most probably a very popular style. These working young men and women do not want to worry about dusting the small grooves of intricate ornate designs. Also, they do not want to mess with chaos and clutter. They hate any bunch of knickknacks that are sitting everywhere. Organization and straight lines are in.

Modern Style defined
Modern rooms today tend to have plain, straight furniture that are often in black or dark wood tones. The darker colors of the room give it a sophisticated and classy appeal. Generally, there would be a few decorative items that are sitting on the nearby tables. But instead, the modern design will only have a few select pieces displayed prominently in a room.

People who like this modern style often have a tendency to spend a lot of their money only on a few special or unique items, rather than to spend it on plenty of smaller items.

For example, you may spend a small fortune on a vase that is made of Venetian glass. This quality item may be the only one you put in the center of the dining room table.

Create the Modern look
Aside from black, modern rooms may also tend to use greens, reds, and whites (stark colors). These popular colors pose a classic and interesting backdrop to the special items accessorizing the room. In addition, they also emphasize the furniture's straight lines.

Another popular technique that you can do is to paint different colors (large blocks) on the walls. For example, you have a pattern of white or black blocks that are traveling diagonally from one corner to the other (in a room). The shelves can be placed along these blocks so that the special pieces are displayed against a white or black backdrop.

The style of modern rooms follows this motto: the fewer accessories you put, the better. This means that blankets will not be tossed around chairs or across couches; there are no ottomans or baskets littering the floor. The focus rather, will be on a few pieces of large furniture - it has the slight possibility having a matching floor cushion or a couple of little side tables for the drinks.

Modern design: not for young children?
Modern look is sleek, classic, and tastefully decorated. Many young professionals adore this style so much that they host parties and yet keep the area clean.

However, if you have children, your modern room design might be lost in the sea of toys scattered in your floor. Also, this style appears to be less cozy compared to the others. As such, children may not feel comfortable.

As for you, you may find yourself running after your children at all times to prevent having small handprints smudged in your furniture or to prevent breaking of your nice items.

So if you want a true modern look, you should create this design either before having children or after getting them out of the house. As an alternative, you can have one room (off limits to young children) where you can store all your breakable or expensive items - this room can be considered as your modern getaway.
