Modern living room designs are extremely popular, with over 11.83% of responders to our survey seeking more information on modern living room design ideas. The modern style of living room combines functionality with an easy to implement aesthetic pleasantness which is easy to keep looking clean and fresh.

Clean, Well Lit, And Functional

The modern living room design relies on open spaces, long couches, and rectangular shapes to define its areas and unite its aesthetic. As far as colors go, the modern living room can run the gamut of relying mostly on whites to grays, and splashes of deep hues are more than welcome when placed properly.

The modern living room design is more apt to deploy a large and stylish couch or chair than it is to put a super-comfortable but unsightly piece of furniture in the same spot. To increase the comfort level of the modern living room, colorful throw pillows and fluffy rugs are common additions.

Modern living room designs work the best when they receive a lot of natural light or a lot of artificial light from above. Lamps interrupt the horizontally flat aesthetic of the modern living room style, so unless they sit in a corner gracefully, it’s better to rely on overhead lights.

Artificial lights should avoid warm hues, and stick to unaccented white light that’s fairly bright and shines directly on the features of the living room. When implemented properly, light isn’t a factor that is noticeable in the modern living room design.

Avoiding Boredom In Modernity

Adding interesting pieces of art can help to spice up the modern living room. It’s important to differentiate your modern living room idea from the countless other modern living rooms using art because otherwise, your living room will end up being forgettable, which is no good. Modern living rooms are meant for easy entertaining and good-enough relaxation, so putting your guests first is a priority.

One final advantage that the modern living room can boast that other living room designs can’t is that it’s easy to clean. After guests depart, throwing a few pillows back into their original positions is often enough to make the room ready for use again. Throw rugs can be vacuumed quite easily, and central tables—typically featureless—are easy to wipe and have ready to go in a snap.
