The Ultimate Guide To Modernising Your Home

Modern home design is one of the biggest trends in interiors right now, from muted colour palettes to minimalist decor and statement art, this trend isn’t going anywhere soon. 

Modernising your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune; small changes can make all the difference, freshening up your home’s look and feel. We’ve got some easy tips and tricks to transform your home. 

Remember Less Is More

One of the best ways to modernise your home is to get rid of the excess clutter and only focus on decor that adds to the overall aesthetic of the home. You want timeless, statement pieces that work within the home. 

Another tip to remember is that less is more! Don’t overfill your home with lots of little accessories as often this will make the space look crowded and appear smaller. 

Use Glass To Create Space 

Glass and modern design work incredibly well together.

Glass is a material known for opening up your home and increasing the amount of natural light in your home. It’s also a great way to embrace open-plan living without actually knocking through walls…not to mention at just a fraction of the cost! 

Embrace Open Plan Living 

Not only great for creating more space, but open plan design is also great for those opting for a more modern look. Before you go all in and start knocking through walls, plan out different zones and establish what design elements you want to incorporate!

Don’t Be Afraid of Colour 

One of the easiest ways to freshen up your home is to add a lick of paint. We advise sticking to light, airy colours that you won’t tire of. Not only this, but lighter colours help your space feel more open; an important factor in modern living. 

Take Care Of The Lighting  

Lighting is often overlooked but is one of the most important aspects when it comes to renovating and redesigning. Pay particular attention to the positioning of your lighting and where the natural light comes into the room. 

It’s also worth thinking about which elements of the home you want to draw attention to and ensuring the lighting enhances this. 

If you thought modern homes were just big white spaces, think again! Contemporary homes always look to make the most of colour and space.
