Getting that modern house feel is easier said than done, especially if your home already follows a traditional style. Even when you’ve decided to redecorate, it can be difficult to know where to start so that’s why we’ve created this guide to revamp your interior. Here are seven ways you can modernise your home:

Use neutral colours

A fresh coat of paint can give your home an instant facelift that makes your interior feel good as new. Neutral tones and palettes are currently very popular as they reflect natural light to make your space seem more spacious while maintaining that cosy, warm feel. Muted tones of beige, taupe, brown, and white can complement other colours and create depth in your home,


You would be surprised how some strategically placed houseplants can brighten up your space and make your home more comfortable. They can be used to add a dynamic pop of colour to a neutral colour scheme or make your space seem bigger than it is. On top of that, houseplants have been linked to improving productivity, creativity and supporting human health by reducing anxiety.

Fitted kitchens

Fitted kitchens are a popular home improvement that can not only make your home more enjoyable to live in but can raise your property value. These add a touch of sleek style to your interior with a kitchen that combines practical functionality and modern features. When everything matches, you can enjoy a cohesive aesthetic, so why not try a shaker kitchen style today?

Replace dated features

Outdated features can make your home feel older than it is, whether that’s dated lighting fixtures or old doors in need of new handles and hinges. Replacing these not only has the benefit of improving safety in your home but it has the added perk of providing a polished overall look for your interior. Paying attention to the little details makes all the difference!

Clear the clutter

Nothing says modern home like practical storage solutions and research shows that potential buyers are willing to pay more for a house with ample storage space. This allows you to keep clutter at bay and helps you conceal less-sightly aspects of your home to transform your interior into a multipurpose space that is both functional and cosy.

Utilise art

There is no better way to add contemporary flair and colour to your space than with some art. A well-chosen piece can elevate a room instantly, especially when it captures the mood and reflects the feeling of your interior. You can keep it classic with a timeless painting but don’t be afraid to venture into the abstract!
