Stylish Metal and More

A kitchen that is decorated with contemporary style is not cold and unwelcoming. On the contrary, it can be quite warm and very inviting. The look is minimalist, but it does not have to be sterile and unappealing like a garage or an unfinished loft. Learn new ideas for decorating a kitchen with contemporary style, and add one-of-a-kind furnishings, storage solutions and more.

Consider a Table and Chairs with Unique Contemporary Style

When seeking ideas for decorating a kitchen with contemporary style, begin with new furnishings. Consider a table and chair set designed from stainless or chrome metal. It will provide function as well as form, and it will add visual interest and amazing appeal. Select a set with punched designs to add more style and visual flair. Punched and grinded metal adds a touch of design without going outside of the boundaries of true contemporary style. You can also seek out metallic top finishes, or glass with metal. Your options are limitless.

Add a Little Colour with Live or Faux Plants

A kitchen with contemporary style does not have to be void of colour. However, it should not be splashed with every colour of the rainbow. Consider adding a little colour with live plants. Select one blooming plant in a colour of your choice, and use it as the focal piece when decorating a countertop or the dining table. Since it will be one of very few items of colour in the kitchen, all eyes will be drawn toward it. In accordance with true contemporary style, consider planting a blooming flower in a plain metal container with a plain matte finish. A small brushed metal or chrome bucket without added embellishments is ideal when it lined with stone to provide adequate drainage.

Chrome Shelving

Repurpose Heavy Metal Cabinets, Shelves and More

When decorating and furnishing a kitchen with contemporary style, search for a set of old metal lockers and metal shelf units with metal drawers. The sleeker the lockers are, the better they will mesh with the style of the kitchen. They should look as if they came from a factory locker room, and it does not matter if the paint is stressed. This adds to the patina as well as the decorating style of the kitchen. They can be used to hold everything from canned goods to notepads. Use metal shelf units with drawers for additional kitchen storage space. Besides decorating the kitchen with contemporary style, both of these solutions will provide a lot of extra storage space.

Home Happenings:Create a Timeless Look with the Right Bedroom Furniture

Bedroom Sets

Modern Designs are perfect for your bedroom

Perhaps more than any other room in the house, the furniture you choose for the bedroom can really set the right tone. That is why it is so important to choose pieces that are beautiful, timeless and of the highest quality.

No matter what type of home you have, the bedroom lends itself well to a more modern style. There are many wonderful pieces of modern bedroom furniture that look at home in any setting – from a cozy guest bedroom to a spacious master suite.

Choosing the Right Pieces

Finding the right furniture for the bedroom can be one of the most challenging parts of decorating your home. Whether you are decorating a brand new home or updating the style of an existing one, the bedroom is perhaps the most critical part of the process. You want to choose pieces that have a modern feel, but also a classic and timeless look.

Going with the latest trend may make you happy for a few years, but those trendy pieces can quickly start to show their age. Choosing modern furniture with a timeless style will give you the best value in the long run.

Bedroom

It’s important that the suite you pick fits the space that it is going into.

Measuring the Space
One of the smartest things you can do when decorating the bedroom is carefully measure the space you have available. Many homeowners fail to take this first step, only to end up with furnishings that are too large or too small for the room. Measuring the room ahead of time allows you to model the finished room – you can experiment with various furniture placements before actually putting those pieces in the room.

Once you know how much space you have available, you can start to look at various furnishings and accessories. The bed will obviously be the centrepiece of the room, and choosing the right style is essential. A quality North American-made bed in a modern yet timeless style can serve as an anchor to the remaining pieces of furniture. That modern style can then carry over into the other pieces you choose – from the dressing table and side chairs to accessories like mirrors and decorative panels.

Caring for Your Furniture Properly
A carefully chosen set of modern North American bedroom furniture is no small investment, and it is important to protect your purchase properly. You can start by reading the care instructions that come with each piece and following them precisely. Some types of wood and styles of finish require special care, so you may need to clean them differently than you did with your old bedroom furniture. Caring for the finish properly is the best way to make those pieces last and look great years from now.

Making that care a normal part of your cleaning routine is the best way to keep those modern North American furnishings looking their best. Frequent light cleanings can be much more effective, and much less damaging, than occasional deep cleaning. Bedroom furniture is an investment that should last for years – and you need to treat your precious investment with care.
