Highlights of Modern Living Rooms in 2021
There are certain trends that change each year but there are also several things that remain popular and stylish through decades and you can pay an increased attention to them if you don’t want to redecorate often. Currently, there are several aspects of decorating a living room that all specialists adhere to:
A lot of light
Nowadays, the modern living room is presented as a room with a lot of natural light. For this purpose, large or even panoramic windows are often installed. Such a room looks spacious, even if its footage is small.
It is now almost impossible to find a living room with various folding screens and partition walls. This is because, in addition to sunlight, air must also circulate in the room. If your room is small, try combining it with the kitchen. The idea of a studio apartment, when several segments of the dwelling are combined into a single space, has been relevant for many years, as it creates the illusion of expanding the area.
A couple of decades ago, it was fashionable to place large sofas, sideboards, and TV stands in rooms. Besides, various decorative elements were used:
- luxurious paintings, and
- long massive curtains.
But a few decades ago, minimalism became popular. Now it is very common, more and more people prefer to get rid of unnecessary junk so that the room could “breathe.” Try to make the amount of furniture in the living room minimal.
A very current and useful trend is that all furnishings should be made of natural materials so as not to harm your health. For this purpose, use as many elements of natural wood and textiles as possible.
In addition to generous lighting, the ceiling and walls of light colors will help to visually enlarge the room. Decorate them with a variety of bright accents, which can be changed at will and mood. Such elements of decor can become a real highlight of the room and make a bright impression on the guests.
The rational use of the budget is also quite relevant. Today it is not fashionable to decorate rooms too pretentiously and luxuriously. On the contrary, minimalism, popular among designers, will help not only to significantly save on repairs but also to get a unique and stylish room to relax after a working day.
