The design of a modern living room revolves around the principle of ‘less is more’. Therefore the overall decor needs to incorporate minimum and functional furniture to create a fuss-free space.Natural light and fresh air are essential components of a modern living room design as they make the space look bright and airy. Bring in adequate natural light and merge the outdoors with the indoors with large glass windows, French doors, sliding glass doors and glass walls with floor-to-ceiling glazing. You can adjust the intensity of light by choosing the right blinds.
