Was your last home a bit outdated? Do you want a home with a more modern feel? Having a home custom built for you makes that easier than ever. All you have to do is design it to have that modern look and feel. That can be easier said than done if you aren’t sure what modern design entails though. So how do you design a home with a more modern feel?
Use a Minimalist Design
Minimalism in design is one of the common elements in modern interior design. Everything has a purpose and the home is kept clutter-free. Make it easy on yourself by building storage space like custom shelving into your home plans. Choose furniture and fixtures that feature clean lines and open space. Sleek, simple, and purposeful is the way to go when incorporating a minimalist design into a home for a modern feel.
Install Smart Home Devices
Few things say “modern” the way technology can. Give your home a modern feel by incorporating smart home devices into your home. There are a wide variety of equipment pieces that cover everything from comfort and convenience to home security. Installing a home security system that connects to your smart devices adds value to your property. So can adding a smart thermostat to your home. Not only does it make it easier than ever to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, but it can save you money by helping you heat or cool your home more efficiently. Talk about added value.
Incorporate Color Sparingly
Modern color schemes predominately feature airy, neutral colors. White, grey, and black paint colors fit nicely into a modern-feeling color scheme. Try to avoid using brown and cream for tile walls and floors though. Despite the predominantly neutral color scheme, you can create rooms with eye-catching color schemes by contrasting dark and light neutrals and adding a bright color to the room. If you choose to use brighter colors, do so sparingly. Think of these colors as being more like an accent or highlight and incorporate them using a few accessories in any given room. Make sure that whatever color you choose compliments the space nicely.
If you love the modern aesthetic, choosing a custom-built home is the perfect opportunity to explore your favorite modern elements and include them in your home’s design. Take some time to review the elements of modern interior design so you can choose the ones you want to incorporate into your new home. Remember to consider how living with those elements will be. After all, you’ll be living in your home, not just looking at it.
