If you’re a fan of the modern contemporary style, you’ll notice one big setback that every homeowner may have to face while emulating it in their spaces: it’s made up of very boring, clean, and straight lines. While this may be one of its best qualities, it leaves very little opportunity for adornment. Here’s the perfect solution – you can use these 5 ideas to introduce fun cuts and levels in your modern ambiance:
1. The horizontal delivery
The orientation of your levels matters a lot when you’re designing them within the built-in furniture. You can take the in-built shelf featured in this image as an example. It has a very clean aesthetic, but the horizontally-oriented open shelf with its recessed lights and compact additions to the bottom make it seem so much more unique and interesting.
2. For vertical orientation
If you’re using tallness to bring out the best in your modern home interiors, here’s a pro-tip: don’t do it in a conventional way. Unpredictability always works in your favor if you do it right, and the asymmetry of vertical cabinets in this living room media wall is definitely a sight to behold. It elevates the whole ambiance and looks positively stunning!
3. Articulate with furniture
The furniture is a great medium to play out with both cuts and levels. However, you need to get very creative with it. You also have to ensure that anything you do does not affect the visual balance of the space. The L-shaped sectional in this living room does it really well. By using one of its peripheral sides to introduce levels, the rest is delivering clean cuts that suit the overall ambiance.
4. Go bold with bespoke
Vertical and horizontal are not the only cuts you can use in your modern homes to get an interesting outlook. You can go bold with bespoke angular and oblique lines to make a statement as well. The customized cabinetry in this image features a great example of how you can do this without disrupting the flow of your space.
5. Being bold with your choice
The vanity in this image features another bold angular cut that has a very charismatic effect on the overall ambiance of this space. It also acts as a functional guide to lessen the area of the counter spaces, so you can always take such pragmatic aspects into consideration as well.
