Features of modern interior
The modern style of the interior is very variable and practical. It is based, of course, on the requirements of modern man and the possibilities of the latest developments in the field of furniture design, engineering, building / finishing materials, and so on. But still, in the view of an ordinary person who does not have a special education, the modern interior remains a very vague concept. And this article aims to delineate the boundaries of this direction and to identify its main features.
Since today most of the citizens live in apartments, and modern apartments (not only in our latitudes, but throughout the world) for the most part do not differ in spacious rooms, the modern style in the interior is aimed just at comfortable decoration of small apartments. The main thing in this case – to make the layout of housing as comfortable as possible. Here, the zoning is used in all possible ways, and the demolition of extra walls in order to create a single space, which is fashionable today. In other words, there are now plenty of opportunities to improve the layout of any apartment and within the framework of the modern style this is very welcome.
In a modern interior, walls tend to act as a background, so for them it is best to choose neutral shades: pale olive, light gray, ivory, and white walls are already a whole cult in interior design. Dark colors can also be dominant in the modern style of the interior. For example, Riverside fashionable shade is perfect for wall decoration. But here it is important to remember that you need to be able to decorate a dark interior (you can read about it in a separate article).
Color accents in modern interiors also have a right to exist. Bright and expressive in color elements “enliven” the environment. One of the most fashionable techniques today is the accent wall. However, this is not the only way to introduce rich colors in the design of the room. This can be done through textiles or other decor.
Separate attention in the modern style of the interior deserve prints. You can find the most fashionable prints of 2017 here. Geometric drawings, tropical motifs and graphic drawings not only decorate the space, but also give it a special mood.
Mass market furniture
If earlier furniture was tried to be bought “for centuries”, then today there is nothing wrong with buying mass-produced furniture. This is due to the fact that modern man is more progressive, he keeps up with the times and changeable fashion trends. Now it is extremely rare repairs in the apartment “lives” for more than 5 years. And not because the interior loses its appearance, but because it becomes irrelevant in relation to the new trends and the person himself (his requirements). So, it makes no sense to furnish the entire apartment with designer furniture from the array or designer items. One or two elements are enough to achieve the effect of luxury and high cost, and the rest can be more budgetary, but most importantly – practical. And modern furniture manufacturers like IKEA and Cosmo have won such popularity in terms of practical and budgetary furniture.
What is an eco-friendly interior and what are its main features, we have already written. In the modern interior this topic is very important and relevant. If you can not use in the design of your home only natural materials, then at least give preference to those that can be called environmentally friendly. Also welcome texture and shades of natural materials.
Modern interior design is a separate type of design art. Literate lighting script not only allows you to make the design of the room more pleasant to the eye, but also comfortable to the smallest detail. Skillful introduction of lighting and additional sources of artificial light allows you to look at the same interior in a completely new way. Also, it should be noted, and the modern design of chandeliers, floor lamps, sconces and table lamps – this is by no means secondary elements, but a full-fledged, if not leading, interior decor.
