Have you recently moved into a new home and are now keen to put your own stamp on things? Or perhaps you have recently rented a slightly dated-looking home that you can’t make any major changes to? Many letting agents in Chelmsford and your local area can offer advice on what changes you can make, but you’ll also find some inspiration below.
Ditch The Paint In Favour Of Bold And Modern Wallpaper
Many people think that wallpaper has to be dated or boring, but in actual fact, there are a fantastic selection of brands catering for modern wallpaper choices that are anything but dull. Wallpapering your rooms or creating one statement wallpapered wall is a wonderful way to add a dramatic or bold expression of your personal style. Perhaps you aren’t brave enough to opt for that dark and dramatic paint for an entire room, but adding wallpaper to just one of the walls doesn’t seem quite such a big step. Magical floral themes, woodland tones and dark and enchanting scenery are all popular choices for 2022. You can’t go wrong if you stick to one of these themes and don’t go overboard!
Investing In Statement Dining Furniture
Your dining room has the potential to be one of the most modern and jaw-dropping rooms in your house, if you allow it to be. Investing in some statement furniture pieces that will last you for years to come, is an excellent first step to completely changing your dated style. You could opt for an industrial-style oversized table with high-back dining chairs and benches, or perhaps a farmhouse style table with beautiful tablecloths and accessories. Your choice will likely be based on personal style and the amount of space you have in your home.
Traditional Looking Blinds And Shutters
Blinds and shutters can both make an incredible change to the way any property looks and feels. Installing professional wooden shutters into various rooms around your home could even add value, as potential buyers find these highly appealing. Opting for white or cream shutters to blend in perfectly with any room is a fantastic idea. If you are looking for something even more modern, then why not try opting for dark black shutters as the perfect contrast to existing furniture and decor. Match these with black window trims and stylish black accessories to really make the whole room ‘pop’ as guests enter.
Clever Flooring Choices For Modern Vibes
Old carpets in unfavourable colours or in a bad state of repair will automatically make your home feel dated and old. Replacing your carpets with light and airy colours will open up the entire space and make it feel lighter. A stair runner will add a dramatic yet modern touch to any hallway and wooden floors will perfectly compliment this finished look. Wooden or lino floors are also easier to keep clean and tidy, meaning that your modern vibe will continue to look its best for years to come. However, you choose to modernise your home this season, have fun and enjoy the process!
