Living room

Redecorating or remodeling a living room can seem like a very difficult task, but it’s not really such a hard job. Modern trends in living room design are turning toward a minimalist décor.

It will simply take the right balance of shape, texture, line and color to design a modern living room.

Shape and Texture in the Modern Living Room

Clean lines, right angles and nicely defined shapes are used in the contemporary living room. In order to achieve the modern design use armless chairs, a low back sofa and rimless glass tables that have round or square tops.

In today’s economic climate it can be less expensive to add room to an existing structure rather than buying a larger dwelling.
