Are you in the mood to renovate your home? Have you started feeling envious of people who’ve recently moved into newer, more modern houses? With the help of a little renovation, you can make your home feel like new again.
Some changes to modernize your home are more than just about looks. New types of furniture and décor are now more sustainable and multifunctional too. Here are some of the best home renovation ideas that you can use as well.
1. Change the Lighting
Lighting plays a huge role in changing the aesthetics of your house. Outdated light fixtures can make your house look dim and small. Replacing old light fixtures with lights that face upwards towards the ceiling makes the rooms appear airier and brighter.
If you want to start with smaller steps, you can set up a table and floor lamps. Tall floor lamps that are placed in the corners of your room making it appear bigger than it is, which works great for living room and lounge areas.
2. Look into Minimalistic Designs and Layouts
Another modern trend in interior design is minimalism. The fewer pieces of furniture that you have, the better it is. Go for solid colors that aren’t hard on the eyes. Some people opt for pastels, while others prefer a monochromatic color scheme.
You can add a splash of color in each room with one statement piece of furniture. You can even have an antique or a painting placed in front of a bold colored wall. A minimal look is easier to upgrade and maintain as well.
3. Have Lots of Mirrors
If you asked your Winter Garden realtor how old your house is, you might find out that it is, in fact, tens of years old. Having a conventionally built house means that there will be parts of it that you have to own for how they are. For example, you may have a staircase designed in an old-fashioned way.
However, when you add modern accessories, you can make your house the perfect blend of modern and conventional. One fail-proof way of doing this is by placing mirrors in every room. You can have standing mirrors that are placed on the floor as well as large, framed hanging ones to put on a bare wall.
Mirrors not only make your room look more spacious, but they also look very sophisticated and really bring your room together.
4. Have Low Rise Furniture
Low rise furniture is another modern trend in the interior design department. Having furniture that sits only a few inches above the floor gives your rooms a cozy and welcoming look. Pair the furniture with a colorful, good quality rug and your house will instantly look more contemporary.
Having furniture that is closer to the floor makes your walls look higher. It also makes the room look less cluttered because it’s easy to take in the entire room in one glance when the furniture is below eye level.
