The problem with owning a house is that it can get old and outdated before you know it. A few years go by and suddenly your house doesn’t seem as modern as other ones out there.  You may pop to your friend’s house and be amazed at how contemporary and new everything feels.

Well, worry not, you can get this feeling in your home too!  Below, you will see four great ideas that will help you modernise your home:

Contemporary Art 

Art makes a great addition to any home, but it can play a huge role in making yours feel more modern. The secret is ensuring you hang contemporary art rather than the classic pieces. This will transform the way every room looks, and instantly modernise it. There are loads of great artists to choose from that produce amazing contemporary art that’s perfect for the home. Pick some of your favourites and hang them with pride.

Wet Room

Gone are the days where bathrooms were designed with big baths and showers built into the bath. Likewise, the days of small shower cubicles are fading fast. These days, it’s all about wet rooms! A wet room is essentially a walk in shower with a lot of space and even some room to sit down. They’re fantastically modern and will jazz up your bathroom instantly. Unlike other showers they’re not built as a cubicle, they’re built into the room itself. You have a section of your bathroom turned into a wet room, and it helps create more space as well as add that modern feel.

Boiling Water Taps

The humble kettle seems like it’s on its last legs with the latest modern home trend sweeping the nation. As you’ll see on, you can now get your hands on kitchen taps that instantly boil water. This means you turn them on and get boiling water ready for your cup of tea or to fill a saucepan. It’s a really funky idea, and certainly something we’ll see more and more in new-build homes in the future. You can get yourself ahead of the game by installing one now and modernising your home.

Solar Roof Tiles

Solar panels have been around for a fairly long time and are popular amongst many homeowners.  However, believe it or not, traditional solar panels are no longer considered modern.  Instead, as you can see here, there’s a trend toward solar roof tiles or solar roofs.  Basically, a solar roof looks like a regular modern roof, but it has the benefit of solar power.  So, you can make your house look and feel extremely modern and futuristic, without having to compromise on style anymore!

These ideas vary from quite big projects to little subtle changes. Either way, they’re all designed to make your home more modern. So, if you want to breathe new life into your home and are sick of it feeling dusty and old, these tips are perfect for you.

  3. These are all great tips! Although there is one I would never do right now and that is put in a boiling tap. While it might be convenient it would constantly have me worrying that my two young kids would manage to turn it on and get seriously burned by it.

  8. My partner wants a wet room as part of our garage conversion which we are saving for. I’m not convinced and just want a basic downstairs loo but he reminds me that in 12 years we will have 3 teenagers in the house…eeeeek!

  9. I would love a wet room, we are refurbishing our bathrooms at the moment and did consider doing a wetroom but I’m not sure it’s child friendly for my children anyway!
