Contemporary-style homes are becoming popular on the recent trend of house designing. And who can blame the style’s adorers? The crisp details that make up the overall design brought a fresh take on the concept of designing. Now, for homeowners interested in integrating this style, here are five ways to add contemporary art design to houses.
As implied in its name, a minimalist perspective is an approach where the design tends not to be excessive. There is a scarce application of all elements of art—line, shape, colour, form, and texture— in the concept of home designing.
Modern-style designs involve an approach unconventional from its historical counterparts. It’s often ironic that human art became complex through the past centuries, only to revert to simplicity. Gone are the days where the curves in architecture are intricate and extravagant. Contemporary art redefines itself as the elegance in simplicity or the bold abstract on the fewest art elements possible.
In its simple use, geometry exists as two-dimensional design additions. Interior designers spice up bland walls with the intermingling shapes and colours that spell fun. Going on a minimalist’s route, even a poorly concocted assembly of geometric figures can be lucrative on its own. But it’s in architecture that best displays the beauty of geometry.
Currently, the trend puts high regard on houses with intentional asymmetry and enlargement of the space. The popularity also extends to the boxy forms of building blocks that will replace the traditional design of A-frame gable roofs. This makes opting for geometric minimalism a worthwhile investment in visual appeal.
Glass is a major feature in any contemporary-style house. The glass’ transparency allows natural light to brighten the interiors of the house. This material also allows the blurring of the barrier between the outside surroundings and house interiors.
Adding patterned window films help emphasize the role of glass in beautifying the house. Decorative films start from coloured window tints that only focus on accentuating the panels. Such simplistic means of coloured films work better on a slick minimalistic approach.
Still adhering to the modernistic design, there are also window films embedded with clean geometric lines. Some window films available contain even the most basic patterns and film figures that work fittingly.
Professional contemporary-style designers utilize colours that are too dull to give vibrancy. Eventually, these colours serve as a starting primer for more additional designs to come. With a dull base colour for the walls, zestful decorations and clean geometric patterns can easily pop into one’s sight.
Neutral to dull colours like black, white, and beige also lose the inherent symbolism that traditional designing once placed. These on-quote “bland” colours are also the most complementary hues for wood accentuation, another design feature. None of the vibrant colours like fiery red or dazzling yellow would achieve a good wood complement to concrete walls.
Furniture adds a whole new level of sophistication to the overall home design.
Aside from being functional, furniture wraps up what contemporary designs have to offer. These objects also dive into the textural aspects of the style. With furniture, it further exemplifies the textural contrast brought by the smooth and slick wall designs. The stressing of using natural materials helps bring a huge textural impact of organic authenticity to the overall ambiance.
