Make Your Space Modern With Some Must-Have Furnishings

Home & Garden Blog

If you want to change things up in your current space, consider adding a few integral, updated items. There are some unique and unconventional furnishings that will not only bring a fresh twist to your current configurations and interiors but that are also useful and efficient pieces that meld in any home décor.

Some items that will bring a modern air to your home include the following:

Inflatable furniture. There is a trend emerging regarding inflatable furniture, and these pieces are proving to be durable and versatile in the home. Consider how an inflatable sofa or sectional might add to your home's décor and how these pieces might prove useful for your household's lifestyle. From sofas that are inflated in seconds to elaborate seating arrangements that are filled with a small air-pump, there are many options for shoppers looking to purchase versatile and inexpensive pieces.

Storage cubes. Storage cubes have been on the market for years, yet there have been some adaptations to the once-popular, simple design that are seen in dorm rooms and office spaces. Many of these are sold in sets of graduated sizes, that fit into each other for easy storage and minimal space. Look for styles with hollow cavities that can be used to store belongings, while also providing additional seating as needed.

Industrial desks. Metal furnishings are popular in industrial-themed interiors, and their simple styles are often easy to clean. Sleek desks made from metal give the space a modern theme, while taking up little space and lasting for years. Check out chrome-legged desks with simple slate or enamel tops, preferably featuring casters, for convenient work-stations in small areas of your home.

Adhesive headboards. The problem with ornate headboards is that they typically take up a lot of space. A modern solution to this is an adhesive headboard, made from a vinyl cling-type material, which is affixed above the bed in lieu of a three-dimensional alternative. This also allows you to change the entire theme of a bedroom without much effort and with little cost.

Loft beds. Loft beds are no longer just for kids; these can provide a valuable work-space underneath a twin or full-size bed, which can be essential in smaller abodes and dwellings. Often found in metal, these loft beds have an inherently contemporary look that will bring a traditional bedroom into the 21st century stylishly.

Make your home more modern by adding one or more of these items to your décor. Talk with home retailers and visit furniture retailers online, such as Modern Home 2 Go, to find the best pieces to practically update and enhance your current schemes. Bring a fresh focal point and visual interest anywhere with these innovative items that are widely found and affordable.

Lawn Care Maintenance: A Year Round Effort

Most of us take great pride in our homes and do everything we can to ensure its beauty and comfort. While attending to our home's interior, we sometimes tend to neglect the lawn, especially during winter. Since moving into my "dream home" I feel compelled to maintain the lawn and garden as impeccably as I do the interior. That's why I've hired a lawn care team to see that my landscape is in tip-top shape all year round. I've learned the importance of fertilization during the late fall and early winter. Keeping the lawn trimmed during those cold winter months will help, too. The experts even help prepare my lawn for the upcoming spring. During this time, family celebrations and parties are plentiful, and I plan to have the best looking lawn on the block. I can't wait for spring to come!
