7 Clever Ways To Breathe Life Into Your Modern Home

The modern home is a paradox: sleek and glossy, but, more often than not, lacking in life. It’s easy to see the appeal of the modern aesthetic: clean lines, minimalism at its finest. However, sometimes we need more than just an aesthetically pleasing space; we need something that will really make our hearts sing. Here are 7 clever ways to breathe life into your modern home!

1. Add a pop of colour

Try mixing several neutral, matching colours to bring some life to your rooms. You can do this by painting the walls with a colour that is not usually associated with your colour palette, or add some pops of different colours using furniture pieces.

If you’re going to paint it, keep in mind that lighter colours will make spaces feel larger and brighter while darker ones tend to close up rooms. Try adding one accent wall as they really help break up an otherwise bland room but remember: too much pattern on one wall might be overwhelming so place them strategically!

2. Add plants and greenery

A houseplant adds instant life to any room and who can resist the charm of a succulent? Not only do plants make your home look and feel more alive, they also purify the air.

If you’re not good at keeping plants alive (or just don’t have the time), try investing in some artificial plants instead. They come in all shapes and sizes these days, so there’s definitely something for everyone. Plus, they won’t die on you if you forget to water them!

3. Create points of focus

Add artwork or unique light fixtures that will be the focal points of your room. This will help to add interest and keep people’s eyes moving around the space.

4. Make use of mirrors

Mirrors are great because they reflect light and add dimension to your space so you’ll want to place at least one large mirror behind the sofa if you have an open floor plan (otherwise go crazy). Mirrors also help trick the eye into thinking there’s more depth than there really is by making things seem farther away from where they actually are – this is a great trick for smaller rooms.

5. Display personal treasures

One of the best ways to make a house feel like home is by displaying personal treasures. Family photos, souvenirs from travels, or even just your favorite books can really help to make a space feel special.

If you’re not sure how to display your treasures, try using different sized frames or clustering them together on a shelf. If you have a lot of items, consider creating a gallery wall!

6. Create zones

Instead of having one big open space, try breaking your rooms up into smaller functional zones. This will help create more intimate spaces and prevent people from feeling lost in a sea. Additionally, creating spaces for different activities and moods will help to make your home feel more comfortable.

7. Have plenty of lighting

Your modern home probably has big enough windows that let in plenty of light, but have you invested in artificial lighting? Electricals can be especially useful in brightening up your home during the dark and cold winter months.

Try adding a floor lamp, table lamps, or even some sconces to help brighten up your space. And if you’re looking for something extra special, why not try investing in a statement chandelier!

With these seven tips, you should be well on your way to breathing life into your modern home! Remember to work with the tips that make a bold statement about who you are. Most importantly, avoid doing everything at once, as this could make your space seem plastic.
