Being a homeowner is an amazing feeling to know that you own a piece of property to call your own. And depending on what type of home you own, you may or may not have done a lot to really personalize your space. However, many newer and modern homes feature many of the latest trends in design, with many homeowners of older homes coveting many of the design elements of modern homes. But the good news is that they can easily design their older home to look more modern with a few of these upgrades:
If you’d like to give your home a quick upgrade, you can simply add crown molding to a few of the most used rooms like your living room and kitchen. This small detail will make your room look more high-end and custom-made. It’ll make a room look finished and complete, while also bringing the walls and ceiling together to provide an elegant look. The great thing is that it’s pretty affordable and you can easily do it yourself!
Painting The Right Color
Sometimes all it takes is a fresh coat of new paint in trendy colors to really give your most used rooms a big update. If you’re looking for a more modern look for your kitchen or living room, there are certain colors that will reflect the look you want. Go with either a bold color that provides a bit of drama or opt for a soft, understated hue. Both will allow you to build on the décor from there depending on the color of your preference.
New Hardwood Floors
If you have ugly laminate floors or tile, upgrade to wood floors for a timeless look that will totally upgrade your home. Hardwood floors will make your home more modern and give it a sophisticated look.
If your kitchen cabinets are dated, update their look by adding some hardware to them. Head over to your favorite home improvement store and check out their walls of drawer pulls and knobs. Opt for ones that look more expensive than bulk hardware pieces that tend to look cheap. For a few more dollars get the heavy-duty ones that will add a fresh look to older cabinets. And to really change the look, refinish them in a totally new color!
