On the surface, no two decorating themes could seem further apart than modern and traditional decor.

With the laid back, reserved, and comfortable elements of traditional decorating and the low profile, sleek, and sharper edged trends of modern style, these two don't seem like they could ever coexist in the same space.

If you balance things correctly and combine the right pieces though, you can make this combination work beautifully and create one of the coolest looking rooms in your entire home.

Unequal Share

When it comes to combining these two different design themes, one of the biggest keys is not finding a 50/50 even balance between the two.

If you are going to be combining these two styles, you should select one as your dominant theme and introduce the other one as an accent or accessory style.

You can adequately pull off this mix by finding more of a 70/30 or 80/20 combination of the two.

Warming Up the Room

Typically, modern decor gives off a much colder vibe and these spaces are not usually as comfortable and inviting as other themes are.

Do you have a black modern couch or chair as the focal point in your living room?

You can add some warmth to the room by introducing natural wood floors, a coffee table, or a more traditional lamp fixture.

Adding just a few of these elements along with some splashes of color to change things up can add some warmth to the space and make the room feel much more comfortable.

Minimalism Is Your Friend

When it comes to decorating on a modern style, usually the more minimalistic the room is, the better.

If you are combining modern and traditional styles in your home, this idea couldn't be more spot on.

By simply having a few items from each theme, you won't overpower the room one way or the other and can successfully balance out the two coexisting ideas.

If you have a modern sofa in your living room, consider a traditional table with an outstanding and unique tiffany lamp on it.

This introduction of two polar opposite design ideas brings a healthy balance and exciting look to the space, no matter how big it is.

The fewer items you can use and just focus on necessity, the better your design will be in the long run.

Covering Space Correctly

One of the most popular design elements in any room today is through the use of an area rug.

Whether it is the living room, bedroom, or just a runner that connects one room to another and guides you into the dining room, an area rug is one of the best ways to introduce a different style into a room.

With standard modern furniture, using a large traditional area rug is one of the best ways you can balance the look.

Follow a few of these tips and tricks and you can easily combine these two elements.

No matter what room you are designing, there are a plethora of different elements available at your disposal.

One of the most useful and versatile ones today is the use of a mirror.

In addition to being a very functional piece, mirrors are a great design element that can really open up some space and add some personality to a room.

What Mirrors Can Do

If you find yourself in a smaller room in your home or in an apartment, a mirror is one of the best pieces you have available to make it feel much larger than it actually is.

By hanging one or two of these pieces on the wall, the reflection of space and light creates an optical illusion that makes the space feel much bigger.

Mirrors are also a great way to add more natural light to an area that make be slightly dimmer.

By placing one of these in your entry way or across the room from a smaller window, it will reflect the light in the room, automatically doubling the feel of the amount of light that is present.

Where To Use Mirrors

The question isn't really "where should you use a mirror," but rather "where shouldn't you use a mirror?"

The great answer to this question is nowhere.

From the dining room, living room, kitchen, even behind your bedroom dresser, the possibilities are endless for where you can place this piece and how it can improve the overall look of your place.

What Kinds of Mirrors to Use

Another great aspect of using mirrors as functional design pieces in your home is that there is no limit to what shape or size of mirror you can use in any space.

Do you have a long hallway that branches off into the different bedrooms and guest bathrooms in your home?

A long narrow mirror that is hung horizontally down the hallway is an outstanding aesthetic feature to hang up that can also make the hallway feel wider than it actually is.

Does your bedroom feel a little empty?

A tall mirror standing seven or eight feet high is a great piece to stick over in an empty corner.

Not only adding class, this element can fill up some space and add a unique design feature of the reflecting furniture throughout the area.

Wanting to take up some space on a blank wall but can't afford to drop a couple hundred dollars on a monster mirror?

Not only does this accomplish the similar goal you were after with the large piece, you have an even more unique looking design feature that is sure to impress any of your guests.

If you are looking for a new twist on your home decor, look no further than the introduction of mirrors into any room in your home.

While it may be considered an accessory, a rug can be utilized as a great focus piece in any room in your home.

Whether a room needs a little more excitement or you are just looking to fill some space, an area rug is one of the best additions you can have in your home.

From the living room to the bedroom, these pieces are a great way to complete any space.

Where To Use an Area Rug

The beauty of finding the right place to use an area rug in your home is that there isn't a wrong place.

From the living room, kitchen, dining room and more, the possibilities are endless for where you can use these types of fillers.

The living room is a great place to start out with this piece as you can place once underneath your couch to add some excitement.

If you really want to define the space, consider placing a larger rug under all your furniture in the living room to set it apart from everything else.

Another great design feature is to frame your furniture around a smaller rug in the middle of the room.

If you are using a rug in your dining room, this is another great way to define the space as you can place your dining table and all the surrounding chairs on top of the rug.

If you do this though, make sure all the chairs stay on the rug when you pull them out.

As far as the bedroom is concerned, an area rug looks fantastic with half of it underneath the front two legs of the bed, and the rest sticking out from the frame.

Design Tips to Follow

While the size and placement of the rug is important, the design of the rug is even more crucial to it pulling a room together or not.

One of the biggest things is to not be afraid of going for a crazy color or design.

Do you have a neutral couch in your living room with some more colorful throw pillows or blankets?

This is the perfect spot for you to lay down an equally colorful rug that matches the pillows or blanket.

This feature will help make the room stand out even more and help balance the colorful accessories on your couch.

This design element works the same way if you have a colorful table runner in your dining room or some exciting throw pillows on your bedroom.

Opting for color or a bold design is a great way to help your room stand out.

Other Rug Tips

If you feel like the rug won't work that well on your floor, there are other way to implement them into your space.

Utilizing a rug as a wall hanging is a great way to add some color to your room and help cover up a large wall that is very bare and lacking some character.

Follow some of these helpful tips and tricks and you'll be on your way to having an outstanding space no matter where it is in your home.

Storage space. No matter the size of your home, you are always looking to get more of it.

Unfortunately, you probably have too much stuff and items you probably don't know what to do with to be able to find enough room to store it all. The living room is always a popular collection spot for anything and everything imaginable, so optimizing this space is key for being organized and efficient.

If you are trying to get more storage space in your living room, here are a few tips and tricks to utilizing it to the best of its ability.

Versatile furniture

If your furniture can double as storage space, you can easily solve a lot of your problem without having to sacrifice at all on aesthetics or overall design. Did you know your couch can be used as a storage piece?

A two tiered coffee table is one of the best and most natural ways to accomplish this task. While the top of the table can serve the traditional purpose of holding your mugs, plates, books and other knick knacks, the bottom shelf can store so many other things. From extra throw pillows and blankets, to your remote collection, the possibilities are endless. Consider investing in some baskets to place in this area to store magazines, vinyl records, or whatever else you may have lying around in your living room.


In every room in your home, shelves are by far one of the best ways to create more storage space without having to take up too much room in the area. Floating shelves are becoming one of the most popular features in kitchen storage, and they can work perfectly as well in your living room. Adding these it are ideal for holding both books and magazines, as well as decorative accessories such as plants and picture frames.


Floating shelves don't have to be the only shelf option in your living room. Built-ins are one of the best looking ways to create more storage out of any size room. These pieces fit right in as a core structure of your home, and can provide you with an amazing amount of space away from the usual gathering area. Whether it takes up an entire wall to accommodate your home theatre system and some decorations, or is just located in the corner to house your extensive book collection, built-ins are one of the most useful ways to hold more of your items and making the gathering area feel less cramped.

No matter what your overall theme is or what colors and patterns you are using, the arrangement of furniture is one of the most important aspects of successfully designing your home.

Whether it is the alignment of your couch and coffee table in the living room, the wall your bed is on in the master bedroom, or how centered the desk is in your office, there are a wide variety of elements that factor into quality interior design.

If you are designing a room in your home, we have a few tips and tricks to follow when it comes to proper arrangement to get the look you are going for.

Visualizing the Space

Before you get into the actual design of the space, one of the best things you can do is to set up the room and see the space how you want it before you actually start setting up the actual furniture and accessories.

If you are wanting to get very detailed with this process, there are several outstanding software programs that will allow you to put your room into the program and get a 3D view of the area. One of the best all around programs available on the market today is the Better Homes and Garden Arrange Your Room software. This interactive virtual software is very user-friendly and allows you to move furniture around with ease so you can get the full effect of what your space could potentially look like.

By using this kind of software, you can find the proper balance of where things should be placed in a room and can find the right blend of where larger and smaller items will go to work best in a space.

Finding the Right Balance

If you are wanting to design and arrange your room just like the professionals do, the biggest thing to focus on is balance. Properly setting up an area to where one side isn't too overloaded with furniture or accessories is one of the biggest points of emphasis for any designer. Try and distribute your furniture out as evenly as possibly so no corner feels untouched or left out of the design scheme.

Another important point for you to focus on when properly setting up your room is to make sure the entry way is not too crowded. Placing all of your larger and more important pieces away from the entry way will help the room feel much larger than it actually may be so you can get the most out of your space.

Finally, another great point to follow is to not consistently hug the walls with your furniture. While this may make the room feel a little more open at times, if you have the room to work with, consider placing the items a few feet from the wall to create a walkway behind your couch or sofa.

Follow a few of these simple tips and tricks and you will have a perfectly designed room just like any great interior designer.
