Evaluate home’s present condition
Take a long and careful look around your home and observe the areas in need of an update. Often times, homeowners mistake furniture as the reason to their disapproval—interpreting a small feature as a reason to renovate. Look at the coloring of the walls, notice the flooring, and overall, concentrate on the home itself—not on the elements that can be easily replaced.
What does modern mean to you?
Modern is a vague term, especially in regards to home décor. So, research home décor magazines or websites and explore which elements you can visualize and wish to incorporate into your home. A simple transition of interior wall coloring can completely alter the ambiance of the home. So, take the time to discover what modern actually means to you before making a decision you can’t replace—easily, that is.
Flooring, wallpaper, kitchen, dining room, sinks and countertops—all attract “age.” Depending on the time your home was initially built, features such as these may have drastically evolved into an entirely new look and function than what they’re intended for today. So, replacing the grey carpeting for bamboo flooring, removing dated and worn out wallpaper with sleek and simple styles of paint colors can instantly change your home into a younger, more vibrant environment.
Make renovations based on your lifestyle
For some, modernizing their home stems from increasing its property value, and for others, modernizing is a result of adding a new character or element your home may have been missing. Whatever the reason may be, it’s a great idea to ask yourself these key three questions concerning your decision to modernize your home: Does it make the home appear more attractive to you? Does it make the home safer? And does it make your home’s inhabitants happier?
By asking yourself these questions, you will be more confident in your decision knowing that it was premeditated and intentionally planned to improve the quality of you, your family and your home.
