We’ve all seen the show and while it’s a bit over the top, our own lives can seem pretty similar at times. If you’re one of those people who simply doesn’t have much time on their hands and is in desperate need of a home makeover because everything seems so old school, then you’ve come to the right place. Remember: change doesn’t have to be drastic in order to offer great results and it definitely doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg in order to get the beautiful home you’re dreaming of.
Make Sparks Fly (Without Causing a Full-Blown Fire)
Colors is one of those things that tends to intimidate homeowners, especially new ones. If this sounds like you and your home is feeling a little on the dull side, it may be time to add a splash of color to liven up the place. Red is a very daring color but it doesn’t have to consume everything that surrounds it. A great way to balance out those harsh reds is with white. This will help keep a natural looking flow to any location in your home.
As we mentioned above, colors and plains go fantastic together. But, if you want to keep a fresh and clean look then it may be time to consider sticking to colors such as white and beige. Combine things such as textured pillows and wall art that is slightly darker than your walls to help bring the room full circle.
Now, we know we mentioned that it doesn’t require a lot of money to make noticeable changes to your living quarters. That doesn’t mean you can splurge just a little bit. What says modern more than a vacuum robot? It’s not like anyone in the house is going to miss sweeping and vacuuming anyway and if you have children or pets then it’s probably pretty difficult to keep up with everything as it is. There’s no shame in getting a little help.
Getting a Little Fancy
Robots are definitely a fancy choice but if you’re looking for something a little less flashy then you may want to look into adding a little light to your space. We are in love with automated lights. This is a great feature for busy families who have playful children who like to leave their bedroom and bathroom lights on. This is going to pay for itself with all the electricity your household will save.
Top Notch Safety
One of the other things we think of when we think of modern homes are security systems. There are such a wide range of options out there. If you already have cable in your home, contact your cable company and see if they have any packages available. A lot of the time they’ll allow you to make payments and give you great discounts since you are already a customer. Often you get to purchase and keep the system once it’s paid off. With automatic lights and alarm systems that alert when someone is near, you’ll be able to focus on the most important things in life, your loved ones!
