When we do home renovations in the Perth area, we often help people modernise their homes. Many homes were built during the high demand era in which many baby boomers were reaching the age where they needed homes. Renovating a 1960’s-1970’s home is a great way of updating it and bringing it into the 21st century.
Open Floor Plan
One of the quickest ways to make a home look fresh and modern is to use an open floor plan. This is done by knocking out centrally located walls and creating more space. This can increase space without actually adding to the total area of the home. If an open floor plan is used in tandem with a second storey addition or a home extension, it can go even further toward creating an entirely new, modern look for your existing home.
We are fans of using sliding doors and large windows to let a lot of the outdoors in. This can create a very modern look. Glass can also help one incorporate an alfresco area into the home and in effect increase living space at the same time. Your doors and windows say a lot about your home to visitors and can make the difference between modern and outmoded.
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home when it comes to a modern appearance. We like the idea of a larger kitchen with updated appliances and an island for preparing food. Modernising your cupboards with better fixtures has a great effect on appearance and doesn’t cost a lot.
Home Theatre Area
Turning a family room into a home theatre area or at least adding some home theatre elements can add a lot to a home’s design. An alfresco area can also be updated effectively with some contemporary furniture and a large screen TV.
