So, isn’t it time for that Modern Living room experience? Prepared to live with modern style furniture but don’t know where to start? Let’s start.
Things I would recommend you would be to first choose the best modern wall unit, TV stand or entertainment center for the living room since your sofa position and measurements will very much depend of the placement of your TV entertainment center, TV stand, or the complete wall unit. You can, obviously, choose to just obtain a modern TV stand however I strongly recommend you to obtain a complete wall unit. This may be the most creative and different piece of furniture in your living room, the piece that will give your living style not only modern but absolutely unique look. Nowadays, because of so many options and various modern wall units available everything depends only on your creativity to build your own style from what furniture manufacturers are offering you. Having your entertainment system set up by an A/V Company will also ensure that you’ll have optimal entertainment experience at home.
Modern sofas, modern sectional sofas, dinette area tables – many of these units the thing is in stores usually look somewhat alike as to the your neighbors have. But modern wall unit gives you an opportunity to create something really attractive, nice, unique and futuristic piece of modern furniture. And also to reach that goal, let me offer some helpful hints that always work with me:
A wall unit is usually what you see first when enter a living room so work hard onto it. First, you really need to begin with choosing the right size – yes, it does matter here. There’s a quite simple rule for that wall unit I personally use: “90-60-90”, or I would say “90-60-45-90″ J. What it really means is the fact that, usually, wall units geometrically are available in standard sizes like 90, 60 and 45 cm. Sometimes you will find 120 and 100 cm units existing but those usually are TV bases or base units. Depth typically doesn’t exceed 15-17″ for wall mounted units or self storage units and 20-24” for base units. Believe me, if you’ve carried this out a part of your research correctly, it’ll serve you right.
Nowadays, lots of colors and finishes can be used for modern wall units. Lacquer, wood veneer…. I especially like black / white, black / red lacquered color combinations; however, even though white color looks nice, be cautious by using it. The colour of your wall might spoil the result (means in case your wall is painted in white, beige or of white then white wall unit will blend in and you won’t have that contrast effect you have been looking for).
Please…. Do not try to create your wall unit spacey and useful at the same time…. It’s not going to work… there are lots of closets in your house so not get rid of the look, keep it simplistic, low to the ground, open and airy.
Last but not least – do not overplay and do not ignore your components… Some wall units like low boards with the TV on top look nice in the catalog However in the real life by trying to set up a TV there, you’ll have insufficient space and lots of cords to cover. So be careful when choosing a TV unit inside your wall unit, make sure you know measurements of all your components you buy the wall unit for and try to visually hide everything in to the TV unit. Sometimes a back panel works nice to hide cords underneath the panel. Sometimes TV units are made this way to cover all those ugly cords. So be careful – this is very important.
Modern sofas… or modern sectional sofas would be the most commonly used pieces of living room furniture today. Here are some recommendations when selecting one: it is always better if you position the sofa and your chase lounge as our biological forebears both face your TV (wall unit). I additionally like the idea of putting chase lounges on sides of the modern sectional sofa. The result is: it’ll make a sitting place cozier…. The entire place feels more secure and separated from other areas that way, which makes it a space for easy relaxation, a full time income quarter inside a living quarter.
It is usually your decision to choose between a modern leather sofa and a modern fabric sofa. I like fabric sofas myself. It is more comfortable for me personally and you have lots of different colors to play with but, once more, it is always your decision.
Now, let’s get to the modern coffee table choices. In case your room is big or even huge, low profile tables in wenge finish would look excellent there. If you ask me, I would prefer arm tables. They save more than enough room; they are not heavy, they are convenient enough to put a newspaper or perhaps a cup of coffee in it when you need it. Or you can hide it when you are not utilizing it. There is a wide array of most of these tables nowadays in wenge, glass (almost all of then have adjustable height).
Do not use a rug, even if it has a modern print onto it, use cow hides. Natural and / or faux will always work the right way in your floor accenting a contemporary look of the room. Also a few chairs or foot stools in matching colors could be used when there is a need to increase the amount of seats.
Modern Dining or Dinette area… Wrong choice here could kill your whole job of making your modern living room. Dinette table and chairs, even if you choose a contemporary ones, still looks heavy and attracts an excessive amount of attention to itself, taking everything away from the rest of your beautifully created ensemble. To resolve this problem and not to kill all previously done work, I would suggest picking out a console table, in both wenge finish or glass. One side of it usually gets permanently attached to the wall. The other side has nice modern chrome legs. These consoles are often difficult to find but they can be customized easily (and mostly cheap).
