How to Get that Modern Look in Your Redondo Beach Home



We're seeing more new construction homes in Redondo Beach being built with a contemporary or modern look which is my preferred style in most instances. A question I frequently get, whether it relates to staging listings or just refreshing the home you live in, is how can you "modernize" the look and feel of your home.
  • Minimize and keep the essentials only
  • Clean lines, neutral palettes and  pared down decorating
  • Use strong shapes like squares and rectangles create an effect count
  • Keep it simple. Minimalism and Modernism complement each other
  • For high style use high contrast, ie blacks and whites in the same space
  • Glass and stainless steel are must haves as are wood tones
I often write about the value of decluttering when it is time to put your home on the market. For living in the house and creating a modern effect you are going further than simply removing the clutter.

A good rule of thumb to get a modern look is to remove everything from a room you think you don't need and them find something else to take out.

Remember that modernism is a thing. There is no "contemporary-ism".

Here's some examples of modern.
