6 Effective Modern Interior Designing Ideas

Thursday, January 19, 2017

The internet today provides a generous amount of information to the public. They often vary from subject to subject, depending on what the user have searched for. It has made a lot of things so much easier – not to mention cheaper – for these people. One example of this is when people no longer rely on the services of professionals like interior designers to create a modern look for their abodes.

All they have to do is follow the tips and tricks written on a certain article (like this one) to achieve the look they are aiming for. If you live in a building in the Philippines which has a mixed used design and want to have a matching modern and contemporary interior, just follow some of these ideas:

Display Toned-Down Colors

The right way of producing trendy colour schemes at your place is by selecting toned-down and trendy colors. Check out all the different colours that are “in” this 2017. You may want to avoid using white altogether for they can get really bland and boring. Plus, they do not mesh well with modern and contemporary furniture you can find today. As much as possible, you would want the colors to compliment your furniture.

Select Basic Texture


The most ideal textures to choose for a modern look are those that are basic. They should create a soft ambiance to your place that will make your guests want to stay longer. Fabric curtains are the perfect example of this. However, you also need to be mindful about keeping their materials and shades natural and nominal. 

Less (Decorations) is More

Displaying loud decorations to your place is completely fine as long as you keep them at a minimum. The last thing you want is for your abode to be a mess with over the top decors that requires your eyes to focus on them. You will end up with a headache because your vision will not know where to focus. Just a small number of these things are enough. Purchase one that can emphasize clear lines in your rooms.

Emphasize Natural Lighting

Natural light is an important factor of a modern and contemporary home. This is the reason why you will see large windows, floor to ceiling panorama windows, and skylights on these structures. They create a light and airy atmosphere to your place. Allow natural light to be a vital part of your interior by not covering these windows. Let the light come into your rooms!

Use Organic Materials


There is a growing trend in green architecture and green interior design. More and more individuals are using materials that come from nature. You do not have to limit yourself by only using wood to decorate your place. Explore other organic materials like stones, slates, natural linens, wools, cottons, and leather. 

Bare Floors and Modern Carpets


Bare floors are often seen in modern homes. This is because it emphasizes the place’s light, space, and airiness. The use of marble, stone, ceramic tiles, and hardwood flooring can be seen in these structures. Interior designers like to use modern carpets to distinguish different zones in a house with an open floor plan. 

These are only some of the ideas you can do to make your place more modern and contemporary. Don’t be afraid of incorporating your own personality to your interior. After all, it should be a place for you to relax and find comfort.
