We all want our homes to look as good as they possibly can, but time marches on, and what was once a fresh and modern home may now look a little dated and tired. If your home could do with a bit of an overhaul, but you aren’t sure where to start, keep reading. Here are 4 fabulous ways to modernise your home.
The heart of the home
One of the biggest changes you can make to a home is to have a new kitchen fitted. There is a wide range of cabinetry available these days in a range of colours and styles. If you fancy a modern and luxurious look, handleless units coupled with modern taps and a quartz countertop will help you to achieve this.
Kitchens are expensive, so spend as much time as you need with a kitchen designer before finalising your remodel.
Change your furniture
There’s lots of contemporary furniture available online and in stores these days, so you should have no trouble finding something to suit your taste and your budget. White furniture is popular and will instantly make your room look modern. Crushed velvet sofas are another very on-trend item at the moment, so if it’s a modern lounge you are after, they may be a wise choice.
Stick with clean lines and light colours, and you will be well on your way to achieving your desired modern and stylish look.
Don’t forget the garden
When it comes to giving a home a revamp, the garden can sometimes be overlooked. There is little point in having a beautiful home but a yard that is unkempt and overgrown, so spend time giving it a makeover too. Artificial grass and composite decking are good maintenance-free options, and modern looking planters filled with an array of flowers and plants is a great way to add colour and tie your garden together.
There are some very cool pieces of modern garden furniture available to buy these days too, such as rattan egg chairs or sofa shaped wooden seating. If your existing furniture is looking a bit worse for wear, but you don’t want to part with it, you can always give it a bit of an upgrade with some spray paint and a bit of TLC.
Add some modern art
Adding some unique art to your room is a great way to modernise your property. From large colourful canvases to modern pieces of fused glassware, there are lots of ways to bring art into your home. If you aren’t sure what kind of thing you like, visit some local art galleries for inspiration. You may not be able to afford an original piece, but looking around will give you a good idea of the styles and techniques that you prefer, then you can search online for similar work.
If you enjoy arts and crafts yourself, then why not try and make your own artwork? It’s a very cheap yet effective way to create a one-off piece and will probably be treasured even more because you took the time to make it.
