4 simple modernising home ideas

July 22, 2020

Is your home feeling a little bit dated, and in need of a facelift? Want to get it feeling fresh and modern, but not sure how? Well, there are a ton of different things that you can try, from simply adding a new coat of paint to give the place a bit of a makeover, to completely engraining the entire place with technology that can help make your life more efficient in many different ways.

For more information on how you might be able to modernise your home in a pinch, we’ve compiled a short list of four key different ideas to try. See if one of these gets you inspired!

New Furniture

Often, tired, overbearing and old furniture can have a place looking worn down, and while it can be pricey looking to improve your couch or tables, it will probably be worth it in the long run. If your old stuff that you’re deciding to get rid of is still in decent condition, you should also consider donating it, or selling it online (using services such as Facebook’s Marketplace) in order to make some extra money to then reinvest.

If you want to go for a modern, sleek look, why not take some inspiration from the ‘minimalist’ interior design style, used in a range of different forward-thinking, popular apartment buildings throughout the UK. One Baltic Square from RWinvest, situated within the up-and-coming Liverpool Baltic Triangle, is just one great example of what’s to come from this aesthetic.

A Splash of Colour

If you want to do a little bit of painting in order to get the place feeling fresh, sometimes a bright, vivid colour can draw the eye’s attention and make a nice focal point. If you don’t want to go all out with a certain colour through fear of it being too much, you might decide to do a feature wall instead.

Did you know? – If you’re unsure of which colour paint to go with when redecorating, there are actually a ton of different apps that overlay the paint colour onto surfaces for you, so these might help you to decide!

Kerb Appeal ‘Facelift’

If you live in an apartment building then this isn’t as much of an issue, but the outside of your property can often do with a bit of TLC at times. When it’s a nice day out, clean your front windows, weed the front and power wash the tiles, and before you know it, you’ll have a home you can stand in front of and be proud of.

Smart Technology

An easily accessible range of technology that spans from colour-changing lightbulbs to smart heaters and security systems (all passed through the same voice controlled network named the ‘internet of things’), smart tech is perhaps one of the easiest and best ways to make your home feel like something out of Star Trek. Smart speakers such as the Google Home Hub or Amazon Echo are a great place to start, allowing you to do things like set alarms, timers, ask about the weather, and plenty more all from the comfort of your house.
