If you’re looking for a new and fresh take on your home decoration, perhaps you have found yourself interested in contemporary interior design ideas. For a modern, contemporary home, you will want to focus on clean, crisp colors with brick and wood accents.
Consider a fresh new paint job on the walls or hang up some wallpaper in a brick or wood pattern. You can also find some fabric that you like and hang that on the walls in lieu of wallpaper. Not only is it much faster and less stressful, cleanup and removal is a breeze! Simply start from one corner and then, peel the fabric away. You can wipe the walls and use them as they are or hang different fabric for a brand new look. Wallpaper “stickers” are also available online, which are not only very inexpensive but come in lots of different styles and patterns. Go explore what you like!
Contemporary interior design ideas may also center around what you hang on your walls. If you have an old ladder you no longer use, why not paint it white or another color of your choosing and attach it to the wall? Use this as shelving to store your books or other items that you would like organized and off of the floor.
Instead of sticky-notes or a paper list for items to get while shopping, why not get some chalkboard paint and turn one of your kitchen walls into a giant chalkboard? The little ones in your household will have a blast being able to doodle on the walls without getting into trouble and you can write down lists and other items in a fun and contemporary way.
Chalkboard paint is also a lovely addition to the bedroom, or office area. Try making one wall a giant chalkboard and then, draw a bed headboard if you don’t have a real one. This is a great idea for the teenager’s bedroom if you have one (or more!) living with you.
If you are not able to transform your home as much as you would like, sometimes, all you need is a new rug or throw pillow in the living room. Try cleaning your carpet and making the floor crisp and clean. Lay down a huge, fluffy white rug and add some chevron-patterned throw pillows to the sofa. The bathroom could use a new mirror or you can put up a beautiful new contemporary clock? Never doubt the power of some “do-it-yourself” fun, so be sure to roll up your sleeves and hand-craft your modern living space!
So if you are tired of the way your home has been decorated, you can always change it up into a contemporary beauty. Use ideas like these and turn your home into something you truly enjoy living in.
