Modern Materials

April 22nd 2009

Combining modern building materials is one of the best ways to create a powerful statement when designing a contemporary home or apartment.

On the outside smooth oiled timbers mixed with rendered bricks or a bold splash of colour are all it takes to make your place a real stand out.
Metal cladding, corrugated iron and concrete are also still extremely popular at the moment. A feature wall on the outside of your home will guarantee to impress visitors. Continuing the wall through to the inside is a clever way to create a real ‘wow’ factor.
Polished concrete is today’s contemporary flooring of choice. It instantly creates a sleek clean look.

Living areas can easily be made warm by laying rugs and cushions.
To complete your uber-modern abode, it’s crucial that your furniture is in keeping with the overall image. White chairs and glass tables do the job alongside black leather chairs and a huge modular sofa.
