5 Simple Ways to Modernise Your Home’s Interior

Sometimes, you can get a bit tired of your home decor – don’t worry, it happens to everyone. Perhaps it has simply been a few years since you’ve decorated, perhaps you’re looking to increase your home’s value in order to sell, or maybe it’s just never quite been to your taste. There can be many reasons why you want to give your home a modern freshening up. However, often the idea of a full refurbishment can feel overwhelming, not to mention costly. Luckily there are lots of ways you can modernise your home through just a few, simple changes that will have a big effect, from skirting boards to stylish accessories.

Go for Natural Materials

The Scandinavian aesthetic has had a huge impact on interior design in the last few years, and natural materials have emerged as a clear champion. Organic materials are a way to instantly transform the feel of your home. This could translate as stone worktops in your kitchen, exposed brick walls, or using wood as much as possible for your flooring and furniture, to give you that cosy yet chic look with minimal effort. You don’t have to do it all at once – try changing one thing at a time to give yourself the time and space to choose exactly what elements work for you.

Choose Floorboards Over Carpets

The days of chintzy carpets and matching curtains are well and truly over. The best and most striking way to instantly modernise the interior of your home is by choosing floorboards over carpets. You have so many options regarding the type and colour of wood, as well as floorboard pattern, so there really is something for everyone. If you’re worried about retaining warmth, consider investing in quality rugs to layover certain areas, or even take a look at underfloor heating.

Update Your Skirting Boards

Once upon a time, it was assumed that skirting boards had to be plain and white – in other words, completely unobtrusive. Now, however, times are changing. Stylishly designed modern skirting boards are having their moment, and they’re a brilliant way to refresh your interior without resorting to a full renovation. MDF skirting boards are a great way to achieve customization – and you can play with colour as well as shape by painting the MDF whatever shade you want.

A Lick of Colour

As well as painting your modern skirting boards, a lick of colour can go a long way towards transforming your home. Rather than sticking with boring whites, greys and pastels, how about experimenting with a statement wall? A dash of bright colour can feel exciting, bold, and exceptionally modern.

Statement Accessories

You don’t even have to alter your walls, floors or skirting boards in order to modernise the interior of your home. If even these steps feel like too much just now, investing in a few statement accessories can have a brilliant effect until you’re ready to take the next step. For example, why not choose a range of copper kitchen equipment (for example, kettles, toasters, serving spoons, pots, and pans, etc). These can offer a pop of colour and bring your design together cohesively without any other effort involved.
