It’s easy to label a living room as being modern, rustic or industrial by simply looking at it? But gives it that look? Modern living rooms are characterized by a series of key features that set a certain type of ambiance in an instant and today we’ll explore some of those options to see what exactly makes a living room modern and how these elements can best be used in interior design.
First of all, most modern living rooms have an open floor plan and are connected to areas such as the kitchen or the dining room. This allows them to feel open, bright and spacious. The spaces are often visually delimitated but without using walls.
Huge, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows are another important characteristic for modern spaces in general. In the case of the living room, they emphasize the views and let in natural light.
Oversized wall art is quite popular in modern interior design. In the case of an open plan living space, one such detail is enough to make the whole volume look modern and sophisticated.
Wood furniture is not a characteristic of modern décor. In fact, it usually defines traditional or rustic decors. However, you can tell that a certain piece is modern by its design which is simply, clean and eye-catching.
