Modern Home Design in 4 Simple Steps
There is something very interesting about having a modern home with modern furniture. In the latest years, modern home design and decor have shown a dramatic increase in the number of home builders, modern subdivisions and modern furniture outlets out there. Want to be part of the hottest new trend in interior design and home decorating? Here’s how you can take the first step.
Start With One Room
Modernizing a home doesn’t have to be the first head dive into a shallow river. In fact, it is much easier to modernize your home in smaller, more comfortable steps. Start the project by thinking about a particular room and start by buying modern furniture for that room. Choose a room that you spend a lot of time or that gets a lot of traffic from visitors and family members so that you will get the most out of your design budget by impressing those who visit your home with the new modern furniture you will buy.
Pick a Piece
After you choose a room, choose the furniture you want to emphasize and build your room around it. For example, if you want to redesign your bedroom, wake up around, well, modern beds. If you want to emphasize your living room, try starting with a modern sofa or center section. This will give a sense of focus and inspiration. It’s always far, far easier to choose one piece of furniture that you really like and build a room around it, rather than trying to package a room full of a hundred different pieces of furniture that you enjoy little.
Consider the Size of the Room
The size of the room must be something that you consider before you start buying lots of furniture. If the room is large, it’s likely to be the most expensive to decorate. To be honest, most modern furniture is not cheap. You don’t want to damage the bank by starting with the biggest room in your home. To get the most out of your money, it’s best to start with the smallest room where you spend the most time. Try starting with a bedroom or small office and developing from there.
Do Your Research
Make a list of the furniture in the room you choose. Take this list, go online, and see how much it will cost to replace all your current furniture with modern furniture. You want to make sure that you are ready to spend the amount of money needed to redesign the whole room. Rooms with modern furniture tend to be incompatible with other furniture so you want to make sure you replace everything with one move. For example, let’s start with the bed. Browse Google for “modern furniture beds” and write down the price. Move to the next section, write the price and so on. Do this until your list is complete and add all the prices you find to get a good number for the budget. If the last number seems reasonable, start your project!
