Contemporary layouts are a hot trend in the interior design world, and it's the perfect design scheme for someone looking for a minimalist aesthetic. While clean lines and spatial layouts are the hallmarks of the style, according to LGBTWeekly.com, there are some simple steps you can take to add warmth to your home.

"It's when you don't have many decorations, you just have one nice piece that looks really cool," Michael Blaz'ek, an interior designer, told the news source. "That's the sign of contemporary because you don't want to overdo your place."

White is a prevailing color in contemporary design, and it is often used to highlight other design choices. Some experts suggest painting one wall in red or blue, to act as the accent color for the entire space. This will allow you to introduce color into your space, while still keeping the free and unfettered style that makes it so attractive.

Window treatments such as honeycomb cellular shades offer superior light filtering ability and energy-efficient qualities. They will control air leakage in your home, which will make a real difference in your monthly utility bills.
