Are you in the mood for an interior project to take on this year? If you haven’t tackled it for a while, your living room could be due a revamp. Most people decide to undertake a major renovation in this space every five years or so because we need change in our lives. The living room is a place where we spend much of our free time, so it is the perfect place to show that we embrace that change and keep up with the times.
Maybe you are in need of inspiration. If so, you have come to the right place. Today, we are going to investigate some stunning interior design ideas for an ultra-modern living room. You are about to drag your home into the 21st century.
Because a lot of the work you do in home interior design depends on correct lighting techniques, you must tackle it first. Alterations to the wiring are messy and could cause some damage to the ceiling and plaster on the walls. Think about where you would like to position the new light fittings and employ an electrician for the day, to do the work for you. There is a growing trend for recessed ceiling lights these days, but I believe they will go out of fashion soon, so consider LED spotlights as a suitable alternative. You can buy low voltage models that mount on tracks and are flexible to your needs. The chrome or brushed steel finish is an ideal material for a modern room.
Walls And Ceiling
Everything in a contemporary room must scream quality, or it will spoil the overall effect. The walls and ceiling must be blemish-free and perfect. There is no point in trying to repair them; you will never get them to a high enough standard. Ask a plasterer to skim the surfaces over with a fresh coat. It will give you a perfect blank canvas on which to work your magic.
If you want to be bold and you do not have kids, consider painting the walls white. Some might say that it makes the room look cold and soulless during the day. In the evenings, it is the perfect shade on which you can cast interesting shadows that help to create a mood in the room. If white is a bit too daring for you, light browns and beige will do an adequate job. Those with a huge living room can enjoy dark, sumptuous colours such as red or green, but they are not suitable for small rooms.
Eclectic is the word these days. You can buy individual tables, chairs, bookcases and sofas to mix and match in the room. As long as the pieces are high-quality they speak for themselves. Try to avoid items made from MDF or furniture board, and you should have no problems. Real wood is desirable, and the more exotic the timber, the better.
I hope your living room turns out exactly as you want. Using these ideas, how can your project not be a success? Have fun with it and thank me later. Look out for more of my interior design articles, they could change your outlook on life.
