If you choose and execute a bright facade of such a cabinet, it will be able to decorate almost any room, replacing the paintings.

            Both the walls and the wardrobe in the living room perform two functions: practical and decorative. In this case, the cabinet can occupy the entire wall, although there is also an angular structure that significantly saves usable space in the room. In order for this option of bedroom furniture to combine aesthetic qualities and practical at the same time, its use will need to be supplemented with a wide variety of modules, for example, small cabinets, tiered shelves, as well as asymmetric extensions for installing household appliances and various decorative items in them.

            In some cases, such a cabinet can be built into a niche or placed behind a sliding door a workplace with a table, chair and computer monitor. In the event that the bedroom is small, placing the cabinet in a niche will be considered the most successful option for its implementation. At the same time, it should be noted that its appearance will depend almost one hundred percent on what kind of facade it will have.

            Currently, there are the following types of facades used in the design of wardrobes in a modern style:

            1. The combination of two colors MDF and chipboard, as an economical replacement for one tone.
            2. Manufacturing of ISO facade with rattan, wood and bamboo inserts. As a result, a clear, lively note appears in the interior of the room.

Thus, space is freed up on the floor, and the owner of the room gets the opportunity to move freely inside the room.

              It so happens that there is no possibility or desire to install a wall or a separate wardrobe, the design of the living room can be done using an original solution. At the same time, it is worth noting the fact that modern-style slides are usually produced in the form of a set of modules, so the slide must be correctly selected in order to fit well into the interior of the room. As a result, it is possible not only to "close" all the functional and household needs, but also to satisfy all the aesthetic needs of the owner of the premises.

              1. Modular mini slide great for small spaces. Such a structure is easy enough to rearrange, while it will not "overload" the room from the point of view of the interior.
              2. Classic slide along the walls. Perfect for medium to large living rooms. In this case, it is necessary to try to avoid cluttering the space of the room in order to leave free space in it for movement.
              3. Corner slide. This option for placing furniture in the living room is considered the most compact, since it is placed exclusively in the corners and does not interfere with the movement of people in the center of the room.

                Modular living room in a modern style

                A modern modular living room is offered in furniture stores both as part of a complete set and as separate block-modules. Such a kit can consist of several dozen component parts, which makes it possible to realize the most ambitious design fantasies. Moreover, in the case of an independent selection of a living room from ready-made modules, it will be necessary to focus on the general interior of the room and the functional purpose of those pieces of furniture that will need to be placed in the room.

                A modular living room is not only modern, but also comfortable

                A modular living room is not only modern, but also comfortable

                It can be purchased either separately for collapsible modules, or as a complete set. Moreover, in the latter case, the entire procedure is performed exclusively on order. It should be noted that such a custom set can contain up to a couple of dozen of the most diverse modules, the quality of which can be very diverse. In addition, modules are usually selected depending on which interior option is needed by the owner of the living room, as well as its functional purpose.

                Basically, when a modular living room is made of wood, it includes tables, shelves, sideboards, and tables of the most varied shapes. At the same time, each module may differ from others in design and decor, as well as equipment. As for the generally accepted division, modern modular living rooms can be divided into two types:

                • special purpose;
                • universal.
                • Modular living rooms can be both roomy and carry a purely decorative character

                  Modular living rooms can be both spacious and purely decorative

                  If the furniture is made for a specific room, it can be part of a special-purpose set. At the same time, a universal living room can be placed in almost any room without taking into account its individual characteristics. Usually such a living room is white, to create the greatest whiteness effect, it is additionally decorated with lighting, original fittings, as well as modern lines of facade decor.

                  Currently, furniture made from chipboard is in the greatest demand among living rooms. The fact is that thanks to lamination, its surface can be glossy. The facade itself is usually made of MDF, in addition, such a facade is decorated with such decorative elements as plastic, glass, and metal. Handmade wood products are in high demand.

                  Usually modular living rooms are equipped with metal legs made of chrome. They not only allow the entire structure to stand stably on the floor surface, but also create an additional style image for all structures. The living room furniture itself can also be decorated with films, paintwork, plastic or sheet materials. By the way, modular furniture can be used to decorate not only a living room, but also an office corner or a workplace in a studio apartment.

                  Modern living room sofa

                  It is no secret that upholstered furniture is welcomed in the described style, while one of the central places in a modern living room should be occupied by a sofa. At the same time, there are several types of sofa that can be installed in the living room. So, for example, in rooms of a small area, it is preferable to install an angular model. In addition to the fact that it will save you useful space, corner models also allow you to quickly organize a fairly comfortable bed in case of such a need.

                  Large sofas are usually easy to clean as they have a moisture-resistant coating. In addition, due to the use of headrests and armrests, they are very comfortable to sit on. It is also worth noting the fact that they are very functional, as they are equipped with compartments and drawers, and even a bar counter for making coffee can be performed.

                  Sofas of almost all designs used to furnish a living room are made from materials such as wood, down for padding, leather and fabric. Corner structures in the interior of the room do not take up much space, but when placing it in the room, it is necessary to take into account the place in which it will directly stand. So, for example, the right-side corner will be convenient only in the right corner. At the same time, modern corner sofas are oval, U-shaped and angular.

                  Separately, it is worth mentioning modular designs, which are divided into selective and transformable. Sofas of the first type usually do not separate, since their blocks are firmly attached to each other. Convertible sofas are quite easy to separate from each other, which allows you to experiment in the process of decorating the living room.

                  As for the components of living room sofas, there are several of them. This is primarily:

                  • armchairs;
                  • ottomans;
                  • couches;
                  • sun loungers;
                  • chaise longues.
                  • If you have a modular sofa, you can easily swap parts of its structure for more convenience, as well as add or remove them as needed. In addition, it is easy to simulate work areas on it, for example, areas for work or sleep. Modern modular sofas for living rooms have up to 60 blocks, which allows you to satisfy almost all the wishes of their owners.

                    The convenience of modern modular sofas is that they are easy to transform, adapting not only to the geometry of space, but also to the needs of a person

                    Living room armchair in modern style

                    Since the sofa can not always satisfy all the needs of the owner of the living room, he will also need an armchair for the final design of the room design. The fact is that it is able to provide a comfortable rest both during the day and at night. This is very useful in the event that guests unexpectedly come to you, and you will not know where to put them.

                    Chairs in a modern style are characterized by originality and "fit" into the interior of the room where they will be located. At the same time, there are currently several types of armchairs for the living room, which allows you to make the necessary choice to decorate the room in the right way.

                    Armchairs of original designs are perfect for modern living rooms

                    Armchairs of original designs are perfect for modern living rooms

                    So, for example, there are the following varieties of them:

                    1. Furniture of classic soft or hard construction. They have a familiar look with armrests, headrests, backrest, legs. At the same time, such furniture will differ among themselves in the material of the upholstery and filler.
                    2. Transformable constructions. These are the most practical systems that allow, in the shortest possible time, if necessary, to equip an additional full berth. For guests, this can be the best option for spending the night.
                    3. Rocking chairs. They also have a place in modern living rooms, while they can be stylized in completely different styles, for example, in African.
                    4. Armchairs-bags. This is the latest trend in modern fashion and their difference from previous models is that this furniture does not have a frame. To make it, it is enough to have a specially sewn bag filled with filler. It is convenient for obese people to sit in such a chair, since it does not have a rigid frame.
                    5. Contemporary armchair bed

                      Contemporary armchair bed

                      In any case, professional designers, before buying chairs in the living room, advise you to decide in advance how much of such furniture you will need to purchase, since extra chairs are very difficult to integrate into the interior of any room.

                      Chest of drawers in the living room in a modern style

                      In addition to walls, a sofa and armchairs, a chest of drawers should be located in each living room. This type of furniture is necessary in order to store linen, bedding, and various accessories for personal hygiene in it. Despite the fact that this type of furniture is not large in size, it comfortably accommodates all the necessary household items.

                      Currently, manufacturers are producing dressers that fit easily into the modern living room

                      Currently, manufacturers are producing dressers that fit easily into the modern living room

                      Modern style prefers long dressers. The fact is that they can accommodate a large number of necessary things. They can be successfully combined with a sofa or slide. At the same time, long furniture models allow you to place mirrors on them, as well as three or four drawers. As a result, it becomes possible to abandon the dressing table, thereby saving space in the room. For use as a table top, the top cover of such a chest of drawers is perfect.

                      In addition, the chest of drawers can be included in the modules of the hotel wall. In this case, it will be possible to combine it with cabinets and shelves. Also, modern chests of drawers often store household and television equipment. For example, you can place a TV in it.

                      As for the materials from which the chests of drawers for living rooms are made, it is usually natural thick wood. In addition, you can also install plastic and glass products in the living room. If we take the most common models, then they are usually made of chipboard and MDF and covered with PVC film, veneer or paints and varnishes.

                      The chest of drawers can be part of a modular living room

                      The chest of drawers can be part of a modular living room

                      Contemporary living room shelving

                      Shelves are another decorative element of a modern hotel. It is simply impossible to fit into an ordinary classic wall the things that are available in the room of an ordinary average city dweller. In this case, a rack will be an ideal replacement for the wall. It is multifunctional, beautiful and takes up little space.

                      At the same time, a classic shelving unit in a modern living room is usually made of the same materials that make up the main furniture in the living room. Usually, fairly cheap racks are purchased, assembled from MDF and particleboard, finished with wood. In addition, it is sometimes appropriate to make a glass and metal rack.

                      The shelving unit can be combined with sideboards and dressers

                      The shelving unit can be combined with sideboards and dressers

                      Separately, it is worth mentioning that racks are now very often included in modular furniture sets. As a result, they can be very successfully combined with wardrobes, dressers and other types of furniture in a modern living room. Moreover, if necessary, such structures can be easily moved around the room.

                      The rack can be used for room zoning

                      The rack can be used for room zoning

                      For example, if you place massive cabinets on the floor, the upper part of which is hung on the wall, then it will be possible to mount a rack-partition for the living room. Thus, it will be possible to select part of it for the necessary needs, at the same time making it easier to access things located on the shelves from both sides. Straight and corner racks are also distinguished, while the latter allow you to save usable space in the room.

                      On a note! In the event that you need to frequently change the decor in your living room, you can use rolling or mobile shelving.

                      As a result, it becomes possible to very quickly change the design of the room, transforming it. In addition, these designs are very ergonomic, as they allow you to take things from them from almost all sides.
