When it comes to designing your interiors, it is one of the most challenging tasks to do. Planning the layout of your interior becomes more of a challenge when you want to make your classic furniture go along with your modern furniture, not by just throwing them in the corner of your house. It requires very little planning to accommodate them in such a way that they reflect themselves in a modern look. Each room and amenity needs to be handled differently, as choosing the right match of traditional and latest is a big task. If you want to build a perfect combination, do not rush and buy any item. You only need to keep in mind a few points while planning to arrange and decorate your articles of furniture.
Things you can try to give your classic furniture a modern look:
- Resleeve your Furniture
It is one of the easiest tricks to make your classic furniture look modern by changing its drab or faded fabric with modern fabrics and repolishing its wood. So that they do not look odd along with the rest of your furniture. For example, you can cover a classic sofa or chair with bright and bold coloured velvet jute fabric.
- Mix Modern Artwork
Add modern and bold artwork and artifacts on the side tables and walls where you keep your stuff. A colourful abstract above a classic buffet or even typical paintings can go along with the latest type of furnishings, making a perfect contrast. It is necessary to select the paintings and other artworks in such a manner that they have one or two elements that match the furnishing with which you keep it. Sometimes a complete mismatch can also look impressive; it depends on your taste and the way you present it.
- Vintage Rug Along With modern furniture
A vintage rug, instead of looking out fashioned, can look elegant. A few pieces of contemporary sofas and accent chairs with a premium velvet finish look great alongside each other. It will reinvent the look of your vintage rug adding a warm and simple touch to your room. The colour of your furniture and carpet or mat must be in contrast with each other. For example, stuff with bright coloured fabric must be placed with a dull-coloured rug.
- Adding Furniture Along with Furniture
It may sound odd that we can add modern fixtures along with classic furniture. But it is possible and looks great. But the colour and fabric of your current item must be kept in mind before buying any new one. For example, keeping a modern tea table in between two classic sofas looks nice. A typical table placed with a modern-time lamp over it can be one of the best combinations.
We hope that our suggestions will help you to create the perfect combination and make your classic furniture get along with your house in a new and modern look.
