More than half of the world population lives in urban areas, thus cities have become the dominant habitat for or species. Although there are no cities in the world that are fully sustainable, it is easier to preserve the land outside urban zones if more people are living urban lives.
When you live in an urban zone, you will most likely not have a yard with trees and plants, so the most important thing about maintaining a healthy and inviting living space is making your home into an environment that is both cozy and full of life. Incorporating plant life and plenty of natural light into your modern city dwelling will ensure that you feel the energizing effects of nature in your urban lifestyle.
Having a modern home in the city means building, designing, and decorating with efficiency and functionality. As it is common for city dwellings to be a bit more compact than suburban or country homes, it is often important to incorporate elements that are taller vertically for storage or display. When you can’t expand outwards, you must stack upwards.
