Turning a space into a modern and contemporary style requires money and could be heavy on the pocket, but you know, there are alternatives to everything nowadays.
Follow these guidelines thoroughly to be a step closer towards revamping your position into the neighbors’ envy. Think of it as a vacation home for yourself where you can just unplug and relax, but with style.
The most popular theme when it comes to décor today is minimalism. You could either go that way or not, completely depends on your taste. In terms of the living room decor, it is one of the most important spaces in the house because here’s where most people spend time together with their family.
Invest in a large L shaped sofa and place it in the middle of the living room if it’s big enough or back it up to a corner if the room is comparatively small. You can also place a big carpet to make the hall seem lavish and modern. Plain solid colors like light olive green, greys and neutral tones work just fine. Add a sharp chandelier of a geometric shape onto the ceiling. It could either be cylindrical, square or rectangular in shape. This will not only allow you to set a classy ambiance with the light settings but also make the ceiling look posh.
Pro – tip – Add wooden flooring throughout the space so that your job is half done. Add a low rise coffee table to the seating area, preferably with a dark tone to it and it will add to the minimalistic theme.
The bedroom is the heart of a home. Whether you furnish it in a minimal manner or are extensive with the décor, make sure that the colors aren’t loud. For a luxurious room, the key elements are a king-sized bed with a fluffy comfortable neutral colored duvet, and a modern nightstand. If you feel like the walls of your room are too plain, you can hang up some black and white photos of your family to go with the tone or simply hang some abstract paintings with sleek wooden frames.
You can also add a rug at the foot of the bed to make your room seem like a posh hotel room. If you have a smaller bedroom but still want it to look high-class, convert one of your walls into a complete mirror. This gives an illusion of a big room and it looks more spacious and clean. Adding an armchair by the window can be your time – put space where one can just sit and relax, probably read a book.
The first thing that you need to be adding to your bathroom if you want it to be modern and luxurious is a bathtub, depending on the size of the bathroom.
Install a beauty station with a hair drier and a marble countertop with a transparent glass sink. This is the basic bathroom set up in most 5 star hotels. You can take it up a notch from there. You can also add a shower curtain above the bathtub if you want complete privacy.
These are the beginner steps and ideas that you can keep in mind in order to start turning your ancestral property into a luxurious beauty.
Transform your home, otherwise shoddy ancestral home into a beautiful modern luxurious paradise with just a few tweaks. I guarantee you that the end result will be completely satisfying.
