The UK is an area of the world that is steeped in history and old world style and charm. There are many homes that dot the landscape across the UK that are extremely traditional in style.

Period homes are highly revered in the UK and range from Classic home style to Victorian, Edwardian and beyond. One of the most preferred home styles across the UK seems to be Georgian.

Some additional things to consider to when planning your modern interiors include:

  • Floor to ceiling windows in your great room or living room give modern flair along with tons of natural light to a focal room in your home
  • Give the room the space that it deserves-try not to crowd un-necessary furniture into any one space, remember modern is minimal, functional and stylish, not crowded.
  • Let one item it the room stand out-pick whatever element of the room it is that you want as a focal point and allow it be just that.
  • Always remember less is more
  • Choose modern appliances for your kitchens, bathrooms, and washrooms.
  • Choose artwork and interior décor items that are modern and minimal in nature

 

Pay attention to the use of materials, colours, and textures to ensure that your interiors are coming together in true modern and impressive style. Clean lines, minimal but rich lighting and touches will complement your modern design interiors even more.
