Is it one that will be used by parents, young children and grandparents alike? More of us live in these multi-generational households nowadays and there’s great pleasure in the emotional closeness, bonding and companionship that come with that. Grandparents can play a key role, not just as carers for kids, but also as role models. But it can mean taking into account quite a range of needs.
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.
