Contemporary design can be difficult to describe since it’s about what is current and where it will take us in the future. In other words, the definition of a contemporary home style changes with our time and tastes. Of course, we definitely noticed some patterns emerging with this design style.
What are some contemporary design trends we see in homes in 2019, and that will lead us into 2020? Whether you are remodeling your kitchen, bathroom, any or all rooms in your home, here are five design trends to achieve a contemporary home look.
Modern Vintage Lighting
“Modern vintage” sounds like a confusing term to use in contemporary home design. However, this is something you will notice in several of our listed trends. Modern vintage refers to a mix of the old and new. Vintage elements and pieces add stylish interest to a room, but the overall design incorporates modern colors, textures, or shapes. Decent lighting is always favorable in any home design, so using vintage-looking light fixtures with modern LED lights is an excellent way to bring modern vintage to your home.
Updated Kitchen Appliances
Contemporary homes would have the latest tech and appliances, which includes the kitchen. Switching out your kitchen appliances for those with modern upgrades can improve both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Consider trading in for a galley workstation, drawer microwaves, or a glass-door refrigerator.
Contemporary designs use more minimal, clean, and soft principles. Natural textiles effortlessly help fulfill that look. Natural textiles age well, so expect wools, cotton, linen, and straw trends to stick around.
Painted Floor Tiles
Painting floor tiles is an easy remodeling project to do in any home. It’s certainly easier than ripping out and installing new floors from scratch! For this reason, painted floor tiles are a rather affordable design project to complete but make a significant impact on the room. With the right paint, you can transform linoleum or ceramic tile floors into something with more contemporary flair.
We don’t blame you if you like the dark color schemes or monochrome grey trend. However, contemporary homes will most likely have rich earth and nature-found tones in their decor. Colors like terracotta and golden ochres are beautiful colors, and it’s earth-tone colors’ time to shine!
