Simple Ideas for Modernising Your Home


Many of us have spent more time at home than ever before, and that extra time at home has left us considering what DIY projects we can do to improve and modernise our homes. No matter your budget, there are a number of things you can do to make your home more comfortable. From updating your kitchen, to installing an Alexa, you can easily and quickly bring your home into the current year. Here are my top simple ideas for modernising your home.

1. Start With Your Kitchen
Your kitchen is the heart of the home – it’s where you show your family members you love them by cooking hearty meals for them. It’s where kids gather around the table and do their homework. It’s also where your friends and family will linger when they come over for a meal. For this reason, I suggest investing a little into your kitchen. If you can, it might be worth doing an entire kitchen redo, but if that’s not in your budget there are a few small appliances you can get which can make a big difference. If you’re a coffee lover, why not invest in your very own espresso machine. Click here for some more kitchen inspiration from

2. Consider Making Your Home Smart
We’re actually in the middle of building a new home, so we’ve had the advantage of being able to consider what smart features we want in our home from the beginning. There were a few things that were essential, including having Alexa operate some of our smart appliances. We have smart water sprinklers installed that are set to go off twice a day, meaning our grass gets watered without so much as a single thought from us. You can also install smart light switches, smart heating and thermostats, and even installing a smart door bell. There are so many options, consider what will work best for your home and lifestyle.

3. Update Your Paint
Does your home have faded paint, or maybe it has some painting that is a bit outdated, such as cream walls. Investing in a new coat of paint can transform your home, make it feel a lot newer and also increase its street appeal. Try to think about more neutral colours and use art and furnishings to add pops of colour. That way you can easily swap out the things to give your home a new feeling.
