Spring is a time for renewal and change. That isn’t just meant for nature, but can mean your home as well. You don’t have to go about it all at once, take one room at a time. Try starting with your living room. If you’re looking for something simplistic, but also chic, go for a contemporary style. This pleasing and affordable style can easily be achieved with just a few different elements.
Use Neutral Colors
Neutral colors create contemporary balance. Using neutral colors, such as black, white, gray, and beige, you can get a nice start on your contemporary style living room. You can choose a main color and use other neutral tones as an accent for all your furniture, artwork, and decorations. The key is to find pieces that balance well together. Maybe try gray leather couches with white throw pillows and metal floor lamps. As long as you don’t just choose one color, the possibilities are endless.
Hardwood flooring is the bread and butter of contemporary style. When cleaned properly, wood gives off the feeling of cleanliness and freshness to the living room environment. A wood floor is simplistic, neutral, and greatly compliments the contemporary style. Hardwood flooring has plenty of benefits, especially if you have children. It is a lot easier to clean and maintain than carpet is. It’s just a fact of life that children can be clumsy at times and spills are a pain to scrub out of fabric. With a hardwood floor, simply wipe up the spill with a paper towel and mop the spill area to minimize sticky buildup.
Splash Designer Lighting
Designer lighting makes contemporary look classy. Splashing designer lighting brightens a contemporary living room without going overboard. A floor lamp in one corner and maybe a chandelier on the ceiling are perfect touches to a contemporary living room design. Any type of lamp would work well. To keep with the contemporary theme, be sure the type of lamp you select is copper, metal, crystal, or glass.
If you’re ready to change up your living room, try a contemporary style, and you’ll be amazed. With the calming effects of using neutral colors, the cleanliness bestowed with wooden flooring, and the right amount of brightness from the designer lighting your living room will be the place that everyone will want to be.
