There are instances wherein a house makeover has been already necessary. Often, these are prompted by certain life milestones such as having a new baby or simply triggered by a change of season. Sometimes, a house renovation may be the answer for a new and smart interior, but this does not always have to be the case. There are also simple measures that you can do to obtain that modern and chic look.
Choose Neutral Colors
Apart from an effortless mix and matching in terms of furniture, neutral shades of white, gray, or beige can brighten up a room. Paint your walls in the same tone and this will permit an effortless makeover should you wish to go for another look. In doing so, make sure to cover the scratches on your walls with a monochromatic palette. Needless to say, a modern look rarely employs the use of bold colors. Finish the look of the room with natural wood accents.
Take Advantage of Modern Technology
It cannot be denied that we are already in the digital world. There are already smart kitchens and smart lighting solutions. You can use motion-detection sensors to turn your lights on or off with just a clap of your hands. Installation of a ring video doorbell is another way to transform your house into a smart home. A programmable thermostat is also a trend nowadays, such that you will be able to control the room temperature based on your schedule. You can also install CCTV cameras, which are connected to the internet to guarantee the safety and security of your home while you are away on vacation. Furthermore, you can also install built-in charging stations or stereo speakers that will leave your guests in awe.
Upgrade Hardware, Faucets, and Lighting Fixtures
The first thing noticed in traditional homes are the cabinet hardware and faucets in the kitchen sink and bathroom, as well as the lighting fixtures in the dining and living rooms. If you want a classic, but modern and smart look, it’s time to upgrade these fixtures with sleek designs and modern finishes.
Let Go of Your Carpet… and Go for New Doors
Most modern homes do not have carpets. The trend for a modern looking home is a pre-finished flooring or a plank tile. Additionally, you need to let go of traditional paneled doors to make room for doors with sleek and modern designs. For this, you may need the services of a third-party contractor.
A modern look goes hand in hand with a minimalist vibe. Hence, the easiest, but oftentimes most overlooked method of transforming your home to achieve a modern look is simply removing the clutter and making space.
In conclusion, you should feel at home in your own house. An interior design makeover may pave the way for an inviting home where you can relax your stress away. Furthermore, changing the design of your interiors to achieve a modern and smart look may just be the key to maximize the space that you have.
