When it comes to interior design, some people are often puzzled when they hear that contemporary and modern are two distinct styles. While the layouts hold some clear differences, one of the first steps in creating a fresh design is to remove your clutter and visually increase the size of your space, according to IndiaInfoLine.com.

When you break down the literal meaning of the word contemporary, it means to "co-exist," and this is a good thing to keep in mind. Contemporary styles exhibit space and texture, simplicity and a clean-cut quality that is also extremely functional. This style is really a muted version of modern interior design where color and patterns are the star.

Modern design is best-known for the prominence of smooth surfaces, earthy colors and doing more with less. This style ties directly into minimalism, and you can create a stunning layout by working with neutral colors and using a rug, painting or piece of furniture as your focal point.

The best interior design always allows for proper lighting, and roman shades could be the perfect accent to your new space. The fabric shades are available in numerous hues and thicknesses for the perfect light control for your home.
