6 Interior Remodeling Tips to Modernize Your Home
If your home hasn’t been updated in a while, you may consider modernizing your interior to bring it up to date.
There are many ways to accomplish this, from paint to fixtures, which can improve the overall aesthetics of your home. By modernizing your home, you can breathe new life into your decor and increase its functionality.

1. Choose Open Concept Layouts
Open-concept layouts are popular for a reason: they’re bright, airy, and allow you to flow through your home with ease. Rooms, once sectioned off, can integrate with the rest of the home’s layout, making your home more welcoming and inviting.
This can include removing a wall between the kitchen and living room or opening up an adjacent bedroom to make a larger sitting room or family room. As long as it’s not a load-bearing wall, knock it down!
2. Neutral Color Palette With Accents
Neutral-colored walls are popular right now, like white, gray, or beige. You can also choose from light blues and greens for a little color. The trick is to accent your rooms with vibrant pops of color in the form of pillows, furniture, or decorative pieces. The neutral-colored walls make it easy to change up your look from season to season without repainting.
3. Upgrade Your Flooring
While carpet can be cozy and inviting, it comes with its own problems. Carpet soaks up liquids and holds onto dust and debris. For families with children or allergies, carpet might not be the best choice.
Opt instead for hardwood or engineered wood floors or large-format tiles. Both of these options offer sleek, modern looks for your rooms and are easy to clean and maintain. If you choose tiles, go with some that mimic natural materials like marble or concrete, which are popular choices.
4. Upgrade Kitchen & Bathrooms
Fixtures can age out quickly, like faucets, sinks, and cabinetry handles. Those simple fixes can make your kitchen or bathroom look more modern. If you can, replace your countertops with quartz or granite for durability and a more contemporary look. Invest in sleek appliances for your kitchen as well, which can also improve energy efficiency in your home.
5. Modernize Your Lighting
Statement fixtures with LED lighting are popular now, giving homes a modern decor look while brightening up the space. Pendant lights, chandeliers, or track lighting are popular options as well.
While upgrading your lighting, consider incorporating smart technology as well, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, to control your home’s lighting with an app or your voice.
6. Declutter & Organize
Homes packed to the brim with stuff are outdated. Clean, polished lines and clutter-free surfaces are more popular and can make your home look more modern. Ditch the clutter and use baskets and bins to organize your stuff, making it easier to find.
