Today’s modern style is based on a design movement that was birth around the turn of the 20th century. The modern style is simple and unadorned. Modern style furnishings and décor focus on natural materials, neutral or earthy colors, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing.

One of the key ideas behind the modern design is “form follows functions.” This idea that creates modern spaces makes it a great style for anyone who likes simple, uncluttered spaces with clean lines and a lack of fussy adornments.

In modern designed homes you will often find structural elements exposed or created. This includes concrete or wood beams, brick walls, and other natural elements that create a home. You will also notice that a modern designed home is set on an open-concept floorplan which creates a feeling of airiness and allows light to flow throughout.

Colors that fill a modern space are earthy tones such as rust, turquoise, brown, and olive greens. Modern design can still incorporate color as an accent, but it will still stick within the earthy hues.

Countertops in a modern space typically consist of sleek colors such as white, beige, or gray. Quartz is a popular choice as it allows for modern design elements like a matching backsplash, thickened edge, or a waterfall countertop. Quartz is available in a wide variety of clean, crisp designs. Countertops such as Vicostone’s “Arabescato Polished” and HanStone’s “Uptown Grey” are examples you would associate with modern design.

Throughout a modern designed space, you won’t find knick-knacks, vases, pottery, or an excessive collection of throw pillows. You may also notice that modern spaces have more built-in shelves.

If you are looking to create a modern space think clean, crisp, and simple.
