How to Modernize your House


Coming Home to a New Aesthetic

From functional designs to minimalist décor pieces matched to a muted color palette, modern house design is one of the biggest trends in home remodeling.

Modernizing your home is an excellent opportunity to freshen up your home’s look and feel while integrating the latest architectural designs, smart home gadgets, and appliances.

Whether you’re looking to appreciate the value of your property or just in the mood for a change, this guide helps add a contemporary touch to your home.

Upgrade your Fixtures & Appliances to Smarter Ones

An infinite number of finishes and designs are available to give your property a new look, from new-age to reclaimed materials, new design trends are reinventing our homeowner experience ever so often.

Many older homes feature brass or standardized hardware and fixtures. A bathroom remodel with minor modifications may make a massive difference in the appearance and feel of your home.

On the other hand, purchasing new appliances is a bit more complicated and, of course, more expensive. Ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, washers, and dryers have distinct functions and price tags.

This step may need to be repeated depending on your budget and goals. However, replacing old appliances with sleek new ones will increase your renovated house’s efficiency, usefulness, and appearance.

Beyond cosmetic alterations, we believe a modern house interior is incomplete without useful technology. Things like smart home hubs can connect your phone and your home technology to simplify home automation and lifestyle management, redefining your homeowner experience.

Whether you choose with Google Home, Amazon Echo, or Apple’s HomePod, your smart home gadget can:

  • Set alarms
  • Monitor security systems
  • Dim your lights
  • Play music
  • And interact with other smart devices.

Create a Consistent Color Scheme with a Flowing Layout

Another excellent method to update an old house is using a uniform, flowing color scheme. Fresh, neutral walls provide an ideal backdrop for flashes of color and embellishments for your modern house interior.

Use the same color family across your home to create a sense of uniformity and harmony. Neutral paint colors also make it easy to update your décor since they go well with a wide range of accent colors.

Even if you can’t afford to break down walls to make a space seem more open, there are methods to make a floor plan feel more relaxed.

You’ll want to arrange your furniture in a way that gives the impression of space and allows for simple transitions from room to room. Allow as much open space as possible around corridors and thresholds and avoid heavy furniture that draws attention away from the room.

Embrace an Open Floor Plan Aesthetic

Suppose you want to design a modern house while also generating extra space. In that case, open plan living is a fantastic interior design idea.

Begin by arranging the distinct ‘zones’ in your home and how you may create subtle separations between them:

For example, a bar can divide your kitchen from your dining room. At the same time, carpets can be a great aesthetic transition from your dining area to your living space.

Refresh Your Walls, Floor, Cabinetry, & Co.

Although outdated patterns and styles may indeed age the interior of a home, fading paint can also contribute to a dated appearance.

Cleaning the walls and applying a fresh coat of paint is one of the most dramatic improvements you can make to a space. Adding an accent wall may provide a delightful flash of color and visual interest to an otherwise dull area.

Installing new flooring is another slightly more expensive job, but replacing old carpets with gorgeous wood, laminate, or tile will make a huge difference.

A skilled contractor can usually find a suitable option on sale or at a discount from a local flooring supplier and install it as part of a package deal.

If you currently have hardwood floors, stripping and refinishing them may give them new life and a fresh, modern aesthetic. Updating and maintaining the floors is also an excellent selling factor if you intend to relocate.

A kitchen remodel will most likely involve your old cabinets, which would often include removing and replacing the modern countertops. So, it’s advisable to repair these two components simultaneously to avoid wasting money by changing the countertops twice.

Closing Thoughts

Take this chance to collaborate and work closely with your contractor on a design that complements your space’s overall appearance, feel, and functionality.
