Tips for Decorating an Ultra-Modern Home

Tips for Decorating an Ultra-Modern HomeUltra-modern homes can be a lot of fun to decorate but they can be intimidating too. With a lot of angles, sleek surfaces, and strong, bold lines, an ultra-modern home is anything but conventional. Finding the right options to decorate with can be a struggle. The good news is that Mission Tile West is here to offer some professional advice.

Subway tile is a classic option

Of course, referring to an ultra-modern design element as “classic” may seem like an oxymoron but the truth is that when it comes to modern design, you can’t get more classic than subway tile. Though they’re most commonly used in bathrooms or kitchens, they can be used in any room in the house. You can even paint them to create a mosaic, more unique look, or mix and match with other tiles or wall décor.

Help the angles come together

The dramatic angles in ultramodern homes can be a lot of fun to work with. Make sure that you’re not just looking at the angles on their own, but in how they work together. To make it simple, get rid of all your hardware. Cabinets can have notches instead of handles, and so can drawers. What about doorknobs? Get sliding doors or choose the least obtrusive handles. Getting rid of this hardware helps the angles stand out and offer the sleekness they’re designed to.

Think outside the box when you think of wallpaper

Traditional wallpaper is certainly not ultramodern but if you think of it from a different perspective, it can be. For example, skip the wallpaper you’d find at the stores and use magazine articles to paper your walls, or photos, or anything that will reflect your style and stop guests in your tracks. For a truly modern look, stick to blacks, whites, and grays.

Go one way or another with your floors

When it comes to ultra-modern flooring, you’re looking at an option on one side or the other: Either dark hardwood or entirely white floors. We’re talking about hardwood that’s so dark that it almost looks blank. White, made with tiles or other flooring, is another fantastic, pristine look. There are actually a wide range of modern flooring options from glass to concrete.

Pay attention to lighting

If you want a home that’s ultra-modern then you need to pay quite a bit of attention to your lighting. You want lights that fit in with your home and that makes its own statement. Remember that no matter how well you decorate your home, if you don’t have the right vibe set by your lighting, it can all be for nothing.
