Modernising your home doesn’t have to cost the earth. Whether it’s just making a few cosmetic changes or buying new furniture, your property can be completely transformed.
First of all, let’s look at some simple and affordable options:-
- A lick of paint can make all the difference to every room in the house and won’t break the bank.
- Buying a new sofa, dining table and chairs can be done on a shoestring. Keep looking out for discount deals, sales and special offers online.
- Modernise your home and bring it up to date by adding the same colour or contrasting colour accessories to your bathroom.
These are just a few easy ideas of how to alter the inside look of a property. Now for info on a full renovation.
What to change for a modern home
Make sure all of the walls, ceilings, floors, fittings and roof are in good condition. It’s not recommended to carry out renovations if these parts of the property are dated, for instance walls are covered in Artex or wood chip. Get rid of it all. Having walls and ceilings re-plastered can make an instant impact. You’ll be able to paint these surfaces maybe in neutral colours which will bring the rooms right up to date and modern looking.
Keep abreast of the latest colours by looking at magazines or clicking online. It’s a personal taste but do be sure you choose colours that you won’t get bored with.
For an all-out renovation, how about replacing the windows and doors? Aluminium windows will certainly give a sleek and stylish finish while French doors or bi-fold doors create a more open space. More space can also be yours if you decide to add an extension or make the loft space an extra bedroom.
Another way to modernise your home is to have a conservatory installed. This invaluable room can be used as a living area, a study or dining room. Conservatories bring the outdoors inside and are a relaxing place if you want to curl up reading your favourite book.
Bathrooms and kitchens
When renovated, these two rooms can definitely update a home. Why not buy new units for the kitchen, change the flooring and freshen up the paintwork? A kitchen in particular is usually the hub of the household so make it inviting, warm and cosy. A modern kitchen is also a great place to cook in, especially if you love entertaining guests.
Creating a relaxing bathroom can make such a difference too and will also add value to the property. If you have the space, add an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom. A white bathroom with cool, crisp accessories speaks volumes about a modern look.
