Designing Additions for Modern Luxury Homes
Choice is a wonderful thing and it would be a pretty boring world if we all liked the same things. The same can be said to be true in our choice of homes. Some people like traditional buildings with age and ‘character’ while some prefer the luxury of a modern home with clean straight lines and an almost minimalistic feel. So what would you consider would make a difference to your home?
Do you yearn for that modern contemporary house style which is so popular these days? One of the best ways of changing your existing home into something more modern and contemporary is by making some changes to the interior. While we are all aware that trends come and go, there are some modern house interior styles which stand out this season and maybe you might decide to give some of them a try in your home!
Mixing differing styles such as modern and antique has become something of a favorite trend for several reasons. Firstly, it means that you get to use pieces which have been handed down in the family which you might not have found a place for otherwise. It may be that you have a few nice items which you have picked up from the local flea market, but just haven’t known where to place them, or maybe you have a flair for carpentry and have built your own piece, such as a wooden coffee table. Whatever the reason is for mixing your styles, you will find that in today’s modern living spaces in Toronto it’s okay to mix and match. More importantly, is the fact that it’s fun to create your own personal sense of modern interior design.
Bold graphics are also in fashion this season. Many patterns which would have been thought of as “retro” are making a comeback with chevron and chain link prints coming top of the popularity list. The stylish part of you can come into the forefront when deciding how and where to use these bold prints. Think very carefully before you decide to try them on wallpaper, because if you don’t like the end result it’s not only money wasted but also time and trouble. (And just imagine having to strip it all off again immediately!) If you want to try a less permanent option, buy a few throw pillows and a rug or two in your desired pattern. This is an easy way to bring this trend into your modern contemporary house.
If you want a more permanent addition to your home maybe you could look at a touch of renovation without it costing a huge amount of money. For example, modern contemporary homes tend to have large and airy living spaces which are not divided into smaller rooms. If a couple of your internal walls are not load-bearing, why not look at the possibility of removing them to create a modern luxury home in Toronto. Obviously you should consult a reputable builder, such as Woodcastle Homes for advice before you think of knocking walls down!
