Giving your home a modern look?

Lots of homes in Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford are new and modern-looking homes are what many of us are looking for these days, with sleek, functional decor and elegant contemporary touches. In today’s fast-paced world we’re increasingly drawn towards clean design and neutral colours as we work hard to stay ahead of the game.
But what is it that makes for modern interior design? Primarily it is all about the basic features of a room. It’s important to think minimal, chic and practical for the basics, that way you can’t go too far wrong. Focus on the underlying colour palette and keep it neutral, once this is decided, you can start thinking about the finer details like plants and artwork for your walls. It’s the details that will allow you to impart your personality into your home without overdoing it.
Lighting is also very much part of a modern home design. Key to modern home lighting is to keep it varied and adjustable. If you take a look around any contemporary home, you’re sure to notice a wealth of lighting features which allow the room to change ambience at the touch of a button.
In practical rooms like the bathrooms, dressing rooms or kitchens ceiling spotlights are vital. They’ll ensure sufficient illumination for any tasks you may be undertaking, and can usually be adjusted for a gentler glow once the important jobs have been done.
Recessed ceiling or wall lights can also make a home feel really modern giving a room depth and character without imposing too much on the decor or space. For a more creative approach, there are then myriad LED options to consider, from ceiling strips to coloured shower cubicles or glowing kitchen islands for a bit of fun.
