How to Achieve a Contemporary Living Room Design with Custom Cabinetry?

13 December 2022

Cabinets that are lovely and useful will help you keep your living room tidy, stylish, and comfortable while also helping to reduce clutter. The secret to a great design is a blend of excellent taste and flawless utility, from modern minimalism to elegant eclecticism that fuses a classic aesthetic with modern lines. Cabinet builders at Masterpiece Cabinetry work hard to provide creative storage options that enhance the aesthetic appeal of your living space. Here are some things to consider if you’re unsure about your choice of materials, colours, or technical solutions to achieve a contemporary living room design with custom cabinetry.

Storage Solutions

Clever designs provide a great blend of functionality and style with creative storage options. Timber panelling is frequently used to cover the floor-to-ceiling cabinets with ample capacity for storing everything from books to clothing, which instantly enhances the room. Colossal and beautiful structures are replacing traditional living room cabinets, and storage units are increasingly becoming compartmentalised. If you want a traditional home library with a contemporary twist, you can acquire custom cabinets divided into adaptable box-like storage sections that can hold items of various sizes. You can add concealed storage to your living room furniture to maximise space.


We have a wide range of choices for custom cabinets. Storage unit size, colour, and shape can be ordered as made-to-measure items. Uncertain about where to start? Deciding on the design’s style and colour palette should come first. Do you favour retro-chic decorated with boho motifs or geometric simplicity imagined in box-like shapes? Maybe you’d prefer something in the middle?

A general rule is to have one concept that unites many parts, yet contemporary layering allows you to combine multiple aspects into an eclectic mess. You may use a shape, theme, colour, or texture. If you prefer a clean-lined, minimalist aesthetic, you can periodically break up the monotony with statement pieces like great artwork, vivid rugs, or striking cabinets.


Masterpiece Cabinetry specialists can design gorgeous custom cabinetry for you if you desire it. To make your living room beautiful, you can use whatever colour you like! Sharp, colour-blocking contrasts and neutral cream, cappuccino, and beige tones are popular contemporary colour schemes right now. The gloomy shades of sage green and navy are popular, as well as candy pastels and vibrant jewel-inspired tones. It is also common to pair vivid hues of yellow, fuchsia, turquoise blue, crimson red, or burgundy with various colours of grey and off-white.

Modern Australian homes frequently have neutral colour schemes of white, grey, beige, and black combined with wood and natural colours of forest green and ocean blue. You can use bright orange, lime green, bubble gum pink, or coral detailing to provide a burst of brightness.

When selecting custom cabinets for your living area, your main focus should be on creating a cosy, airy place with lots of space for entertainment. Additionally, ensure that you are aware of the importance of measuring custom cabinets before designing the layout because smart storage solutions are crucial if you want to keep the area organised!
