Modern Home Improvements That Make Your House Stand Out – AD

Here are some of my top tips when it comes to modern home improvements. These can be achieved whether you’re on a budget or looking to spend a little more to get your desired look.
Now, I’m not talking 70’s psychedelic carpets or shaggy rugs. I mean really modern and sleek marble or stunning Resin Flooring. Having a statement floor in a room can really bring a modern aspect to your interiors – especially if they have a matte or shiny finish. Looking for the same look on a budget? Linoleum has come a long way since its 80’s heyday. You can find this type of flooring in bargain stores like B&M and on eBay. I think they’re great for smaller bathrooms too.
Whether they’re local artist prints on Etsy or stand-alone pieces from my favourite photographer, I think that art makes a room stand out and really draws your attention. Not only this, but it makes a room seem more homely (in my opinion). Blank walls can either be completely boring or totally modern, it really depends on how you look at it. At the moment, I’m really loving abstract paintings. Their texture makes them stand out against flat prints, and texture is a huge trend this year.
Lighting That Wows
Sometimes a chandelier or curved reading lamp can make a room pop. I’ve always said that lighting is a big factor in what makes a room feel more comfortable, and that’s something I’ll always stick by. Warm tones are ideal for making welcoming vibes, and to me, it’s one of the main things of what makes a house a home.
Strong Colour Palettes
Who doesn’t love an accent wall? They’re becoming slightly dated, but a pastel pink gallery wall will always be timeless to me. They’re great for hanging pieces of artwork, placing your television (if it’s wall-mounted) or for hanging up family pictures! Choosing the right colour palette will probably top most modern home improvements lists, but it’s because they’re so important in making (or breaking) a room.
