When designing a modern space, the first step is to get rid of (or at least hide) any unneeded clutter. Once the room is cleared, add a few multifunctional pieces. Be sure that every element you bring in has a clearly defined purpose in addition to driving home your modern aesthetic. Carefully distribute items throughout the room so that it feels balanced.
Modern Nordic (above) is influenced by Danish hygge (cosiness) and Swedish lagom (simplicity and restraint). Use this look to create a calm retreat away from today’s frenzied technology and social media-dominated world. Combine architecturally clean-lined pieces – such as the Linea range of wall-mounted cupboards from bathstore – with soft, uncomplicated colours and organic, natural materials such as wood and stone.
Prospective home buyers often value bathrooms greatly, but a home not having a good mix of bathrooms might sell poorly. Full and three-quarter baths in a home are often more attractive than half-baths at home sale time, for one. And home buyers with children often want home bathrooms with tubs for the kids and showers for the adults. However, as the size and amenities in a bathroom grow, so does the cost.
Modern interior design came about as a reaction to the ornate and almost baroque styles that came before it. As such, the main focus of this school of design is to act as the antithesis of of those other looks. Rather than having lots of details and embellishments, modern furniture relies on clean lines and stark contrasts.
