Re-fall in love with your house before entering it
The facade of your home creates the first impression your guests will have of it, or, if you have the house for sale, your potential buyers one too. So it’s very important that you have your house in excellent condition.
The house’s very “loaded with ornaments” are now unnecessary and “passé.” Nowadays, modern houses are characterized by a “clean” design of simple lines. We could even consider them as minimally styled, using a tendency in which less is more.
Thinking about and wishing to see your house as completely renovated, I will write some ways in which you could give a very special change to it. So here we go:
Change the front door of the house
The door is the first thing people will look and even touch. The strong and vivid colors in brightness are quite popular today. In the case you opt for a more conservative look, black is always a safe bet. Also white, but gets dirty easier. For a more contemporary look, use dull and matte colors.
Look for the chance to have a great outdoor lighting
The placement your home gives is noted before entering, so try to place a spotlight on each side of the door of the main entrance to give symmetry. Just in case you have an entry with porch, you can also put a lantern (It is a very elegant detail). And if you get to the house through a garden, try to illuminate it slightly. Maybe you can hide lights in trees or conceal them in the garden path (this gives a hint quite cozy, and it can also be romantic! In case you want to surprise your partner!). You can buy solar garden lights in DIY stores ideal for illuminating a path.
Old houses are characterized by small windows; the openings occupy only the space that is just required to enter the light. Now modern houses illuminate the interior with large windows or glass curtain walls, this can even help to save energy, since you’re using the natural light at home!… that’s why the use of glass blocks has spread a lot to be used not only in bathrooms but also in kitchens and living rooms.
For these reasons if you want to remodel your house and make it modern do not forget to enlarge the openings and place an appropriate glass.
Add a little green.
You don’t really need a big garden to plant a vine, and it’s something that fit absolutely nice in walls (although it is important you to consult an expert as some vines are not good for bricks). Planters full of colorful plants and hedges highlight the front of a house.
In smaller spaces, such as on each side of the front door, placing pots is a good idea to give a little more life to your home.
And finally, a look that will seem curious to you, since maybe had not gone through your mind when thinking of remodeling, but cleaning the front of the house will leave you surprised to see how big the change is. Let’s paint it again, go over the joints between the bricks or plaster the ugly bricks. If your decision is to paint again, beware the paint color should be more sensitive than in the front door and according to the age and style of the house.
So, as you can see, there are many ways to get an awesome outdoor renovation that can make you feel like living in a new house.
Anyway, my purpose is that all tips I write to remodel your house to make it a modern home must aim you feel very comfortable to live in it.
So get on with it! … It’s time to be the envy of neighbors!
