Adding Warmth to Contemporary Home Design
Do you think that there is room to warm up your home? In the past, homeowners were more practical and they were focused on the functionality of their home while the appearance came in the second place. However, even today when people have so many options to spice up things in their home, some of the miss this chance. The fact is that many modern homes look a little bit cold inside. The good news is that there are certain ways in which every homeowner can make their home warmer and cozier. Even those who think that their home is radiating warmth should know that there is no such thing as too warm when it comes to interior. The following is a list of things that you can do to add warmth to the cold modern home design.
- Make it warmer
If you are like most homeowners who have modern furniture in their home, you may feel comfortable with some pieces of cool furniture like a glass coffee table with metal table legs, refrigerator plated with nickel or some other metal or completely metal chairs in the dining room. These pieces of furniture may look attractive, but they are also making the atmosphere a little bit cold. Boost the warmth in any room with the help of a rustic range of colors. Choose a side table that comes with any kind of warm wood color (beech for example). You can also use wooden shelves and add a leather pouf where you can rest your feet.
- Increase the heat
The following advice will literally warm up your home. In case your home doesn’t have a fireplace, you must get one. On the other hand, if you have one it is the right time to actually being using it. If your mantle comes in black color like most mantles, then you should know that repainting in a color that looks similar to some pale wood color will make the room look more refined. You can also put some yellow (or any bright color) rug in front of the fireplace.
- Rustic is trendy
Beautify the space around the fireplace with the help of a few wood photo frames. Get the rocker from your basement and refresh it with some beautiful natural finish. If you have not yet changed the table in the dining room, this is the right time to do this – choose a table made of wood.
- Comfy textiles
There are only a small number of things that can warm up a cold-looking room in a similar way like a comfy rug with specific texture. Use a dirty white color to spice up things a little bit. Put on a pair of furry slippers, light the fireplace and enjoy.
- Add life
Make your room livelier by placing some succulents or air plants. The best part is that they are not very demanding, so just pour some water every once in a while.
