Uniting Your Kitchen and Living Room for a Modern Lifestyle

Modern living is, in a whole host of ways, entirely different from just a couple of decades ago, primarily due to the virtual takeover of technology and the way handheld technological items have found their way into the lives of nearly everyone in this country.

However, living a modern lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to have a hectic, packed-full and work-conducive home life, in fact, it’s quite the opposite as your home should be an oasis of calm that complements modern living.

With that said, here are some helpful hints and tips on how to unite your kitchen and living room for a modern lifestyle.

1.    Paint is Your Best Friend

First and foremost, to tie any two rooms within your property together, but especially the kitchen and living room on the ground floor, it is time to head to the local DIY store and treat yourself to some tins of paint in modern and statement colours.

You could choose to make a more obvious unification by painting the walls of the kitchen, both behind the cabinets and on the bare walls too, in the same colour as the focal wall of your living room, or else choose a more subtle approach.

Painting the legs of the coffee table in the lounge, for example, in the same texture and colour of the kitchen drawers, makes for a more relaxing transition from one room to the next.

Trending and altogether modern colours that are not only fashionable right now, but set to remain this way for the foreseeable future, include:

  • Magenta and fuchsia
  • Chocolate brown
  • Vintage pale yellow and barely-there lemon
  • Nude and pale orange tones
  • Cobalt, navy, and sea blue

2.    Flooring That Flows

One of the most eye-catching changes you can make to unify your lounge and kitchen is to install new flooring that ties both rooms together, making for a warmer and more social place all round.

Moreover, if you want to combine your new striking spaces with a sustainable on-trend flooring option, look no further than limestone tiles from prestigious and established suppliers such as mystonefloor.com.

Key advantages of stone flooring on the ground floor include:

  • It’s a strong and durable flooring option
  • It’s easy to clean and maintain
  • It’s a way to add value to your property
  • It provides a warm, welcoming, and cosy ambience

3.    Sustainable Materials Throughout

Modern living is an amazing contradiction between the latest in smart home technology and importantly, a concerted move from high-street and high-end interior designers alike to a sustainable and more eco-friendly blueprint.

Sustainable living is, therefore, at the heart of modern living, so making a concerted effort to become much more environmentally conscious when choosing materials and new purchases for your home is essential.

Unifying these materials, from bamboo and jute rugs, to reclaimed and repurposed wooden furniture and upcycled brass accents in both the kitchen and the living room is a fantastic way of reducing your carbon footprint at the same time as uniting both rooms.
