Are you looking to inject some modern luxury into your home? What better time to give your abode a makeover than just in time for the new year? Whether you’ve grown tired of ageing décor or simply fancy a change, it couldn’t be easier to bring your home into the modern age.
The obvious places to start are your kitchen, bathroom and your master suite, which are often the basis for any future sale. Get those right, and the rest of your home will all but take care of itself in the value department, but if you’re planning on staying put for the long-term and simply want to enjoy the fruits of your labour yourself, then there are some simple things you can do to up the ante in each of your rooms to bring them thoroughly into the modern age.
Unsure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Read on for our top tips for revamping your high-end home in 2021, modern luxury style.
Remodel your bathroom
There is nothing quite as telling of the age of your home than a dated looking bathroom suite, so if you’re ready to go all out then remodelling this room is the number one way to elevate your home to all new heights.
Doing so will ensure that all of your fixtures and fittings are up-to-date and that your plumbing is working efficiently, and by incorporating some luxe features such as modern tiling on the walls (we love the big, geometric kind) and some opulent features such as countertop basins and a double vanity, as well as adopting recessed lighting, you can soon create the bathroom of your dreams.
While we might be going for modern, marble will always have a place. Opt for classic white and update with gold or copper fittings for the ultimate in high-end contemporary chic.
Cluttered spaces and limited floor space are one of the fastest ways to pour water on the luxurious feeling you’re trying to create, so clear out any unnecessary items from your rooms to create maximum floor space. The key here is to take a minimalistic approach, as when it comes to home design, less is almost always more.
Creating open space will allow your rooms to effortlessly flow into one another and by picking just one or two key pieces of modern furniture for each room you can quickly and easily create a more luxurious feel.
Got a lot of belongings? Invest in some clever storage solutions to expertly hide them from view and keep them neat and tidy behind closed doors.
Keep walls and floors in neutral tones and accessorise with bold soft furnishings or minimal accessories for a thoroughly ‘now’ finish.
Add some greenery
Adding some greenery to your home is one of the quickest and easiest ways to update your home, and can quickly add interest to even the most uninteresting of spaces. Oversized plants and foliage can make for great focal points in almost any room throughout your house. Position around your fireplace in the living room or arrange a cluster of pot plants in different sizes in your bathroom, at the end of the bath.
Plants are also a great way to style shelves or spruce up window ledges throughout the home, and as bringing the outdoors in continues to be a major interior design trend as we head into 2021, there couldn’t be a better time to introduce some into yours.
Add some high-end touches
When it comes to creating that modern luxury feel, the finishing touches count, and there are plenty of small ways to inject a little glamour into your home with minimal effort. Choose your materials carefully; antique gold and solid wood can quickly create the desired effect, while some abstract pieces of art on the walls, or some fun lighting – Sculpt Neon Signs has a great selection of signs to choose from for a little added cocktail-bar chic and celebrity-style glamour – will bring your living room bang up to date.
Add some carefully chosen modern centrepieces to your tables, choose one or two stand-out accessories for each room, and you’ll have soon created the ultimate high-end feel.
