Creating contemporary home designs Sydney

by Maria Williams Online Marketing Specialist

Home designs Sydney are the best way to express our styles and personalities, and picking the perfect mix of elements for our homes can be a little confusing.

Where modern decor designs seem to be more minimalistic and stifling to many homeowners, you can opt for the more classic and serenely-simple contemporary designs. Although people use contemporary decors interchangeably to refer to modern styles, contemporary home designs differ from modern styles in that they are ageless.

The contemporary movement is sweeping fast, and everyone continues to catch its 'fever' from our everyday fashion to tech, architecture, and behaviours. If you like contemporary styles, here are a few tips to help you to replicate them in your home.

Let in the Lights

Natural lights are necessary for contemporary decors, and you should allow more of it into the rooms in your homes. Make use of skylights, large windows, solar tubes, and conspicuous coverings for the windows of private areas. Also, this design style saves you a lot in energy cost and are more eco-friendly.

Use subtle colours in the background

You should use neutral/simpler colours for background elements, and leave the colour flamboyance to other objects in your home like the furniture, metals, and ornaments. Examples of colours you can use for the floorings, furnishings, and other background elements are; grey, brown, black, and white.

However, your colour blend shouldn't be boring just because they're neutral colours.

Natural materials are the top preference for contemporary styles

The exterior parts of your house should feature designs with natural materials; you can use beautifully cut stones to decorate external stairs in your homes, marble decorations on the walls, and floors.

You can use other natural elements like precious stones, metals to decorate the interior of the house. Your furniture, railings, fences, knobs & handles should also feature other natural/handcrafted designs.

Optimal use of space in the home

While other designs aim to be efficient with space by trying to fill it up with other design elements and larger furniture, contemporary designs aim to create a balance between space and home size. You should handle home decorations with consideration for the home space, and ensure that there are 'open floors' around.

Gadgets and appliances should be a little inconspicuous in your home style

The ubiquitous presence of electronic gadgets and equipment are subtler in contemporary designs. The use of remote controls to access all electronics in the home can obscure the obtrusive nature of technology in our homes.

Not saying that technology is wrong for contemporary designs, but a classic home look overshadows it.

Pay attention to contemporary design elements

Simple is the best way to approach contemporary designs; avoid unnecessary elements on your furnishings, cabinets, or tables. Keep floors bare and simple, with neat finishes made of ceramic, porcelain tiles, marbles, and the rest.

Keep natural and organic materials around like natural flowers, landscape paintings, leather settee, area rugs, and other similar elements.

You can invent new design styles and mix

Every design styles borrow one or two parts from previous designs, and this is what makes designs to last longer in trends. Contemporary designs are not too rigid/formal not to allow a little blending with other design ideas. Feel free to incorporate your ideas, add your styles, and tweak some materials with ideas from other designs.
