Want a modern home? Here's the areas to focus on

If you are living in a tired looking home that is no longer making you happy, it is important that you focus on the most important areas, especially if you have a limited budget. You need to prioritize your home improvements, so you can make the most out of your investment and get the maximum benefits out of your DIY or renovation project. Find out more about the areas you should pay attention to first.

Your Flooring

One of the things that can let you down when it comes to home decor is the flooring. As you will need to move loads of things around and do a complete renovation, you hardly ever get to it. Instead of that old tired looking and stained carpet, wouldn’t you like to be welcomed by a stone floor or a real hardwood? Maybe you feel the difference in the temperature downstairs and upstairs, and are thinking about getting an underfloor heating installed. This might be the perfect chance to do it.

Your Layout

Living in an older home can be tiring, and you might have foyers and small alcoves that make it hard to use your space the best way. This is why you might want to talk to Contemporary Architects who can design the layout with the feature and main walls in mind. You don’t want to compromise the structural integrity of your home, just to get more functional space and natural light in your living room and kitchen.


Bathrooms are spaces every family member uses, and they can bring you down when they don’t serve your needs. Take care of the ventilation, and the design and make sure that you have relaxing and modern features that make you feel like relaxing after a hard day at work soaking in the bath. You can give your bathroom a new life on a budget by changing the floor and wall tiles, getting a modern bathroom suite, and install water saving features.

Doors and Windows

One of the things you are also required to focus on when trying to improve the curb appeal and overall functionality of your home is the doors and the windows. There are various double glazed or triple glazed designs available at a trade price, and you can even get stunning heat resistant composite doors to make your front of the house more appealing and warmer, too.


We all love cooking and sharing details about our day in the kitchen, but if it is not working around our lifestyle, it might be time for a change. Chances are that you might not even need to get rid of the kitchen units, just change the doors and drawer faces, or get your kitchen resprayed. When it comes to appliances, however, you will want maximum performance and functionality.

Modernising an older home is usually a challenge. You might not even know where to start. Focus on these areas, and you can make a real difference for yourself and every family member.
