Seems like a no-brainer, right? No matter what style you go for, your space should be able to stand the test of time. Since design projects can often be pricey, you want to ensure your handiwork remains usable for the foreseeable future. One of the easiest ways to do that is to invest in quality design elements.
When designing a modern space, the first step is to get rid of (or at least hide) any unneeded clutter. Once the room is cleared, add a few multifunctional pieces. Be sure that every element you bring in has a clearly defined purpose in addition to driving home your modern aesthetic. Carefully distribute items throughout the room so that it feels balanced.
As always, there are exceptions to every rule. In this case, it‘s how much you love a particular design element. If you find a particular item that speaks to your personal sense of style and you can’t stop thinking about — go for it. Taking pride in your home will never go out of fashion.
The key lies in how you incorporate trends into your space. Limit en vogue items to the cheaper and more replaceable aspects of the space — think throw pillows or lighting. That way, if styles change a few years down the road, you’ll be able to easily swap those elements out for more current styles without a huge cost. Not exactly the case if you splurge on a green velvet sofa that you can’t bear the sight of in a few years.
