Simple Touches to Make Your Home Look More Elegant

Scanning through home improvement channels, dreaming of upgrading your kitchen without weeks of construction? We get it. Here at Modernize, we know updating your home may seem like a huge undertaking. But it doesn’t have to be! Simple touches can transform a space from simply liveable to classically elegant. Here are a few of our favorite solutions.
Fresh Paint Goes a Long Way
If you’ve been wanting to repaint for a while, indulge! Applying fresh paint will brighten up any space. Research states that color can affect our moods, and shades like slate gray and cool blue have calming effects. Shades of red stimulate conversation and bright colors can make you feel happier. That’s something to keep in mind if you don’t know where to start, but of course, go for the colors you love the most. This is your space, after all! You can even use eco-friendly paint with low VOCs to reduce your carbon footprint.

Build your color scheme with your paint hue as a base. Search for coordinating patterns and fabrics for upholstery and throw pillows, and add pops of accent colors through accessories.

Be sure to freshen up your baseboards and crown molding. If your space doesn’t have crown molding, consider installing this detail to up your elegance factor.


Let Your Light Shine

Natural light does a lot of good for our bodies, from providing vitamin D to boosting our moods. Utilize natural light by opening up windows and positioning seating near those happy rays of sunlight. Use eco-friendly double- or triple-pane windows that protect your furniture and skin from UV damage.

Artificial lighting can also boost the aesthetic and tone of a space. Interesting light fixtures can serve as focal points or conversation pieces. We love to browse through flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops for old-world-style light fixtures, or even modern treasures. Installing bright track lighting is another great solution. Light will reflect on your fresh paint, and you’ll be in a brighter, happier space.

Let Your Art Do the Work
A great way to make any space elegant is to display a series of sophisticated artwork. If you’re a collector, display your fine art with pride. However, we know that collecting can be expensive, so we suggest looking for art from vendor or craft fairs. You can even make your own abstract art and show it off to the world!

Complement modern art with fun, vibrant accessories, and classical art with simple, elegant accessories. The cohesive aesthetic will work wonders for the space’s style

Cut Down the Clutter

If you have a crowded space, it’s time to take control and organize the chaos. Reducing clutter in every space will turn the focus to the space’s aesthetic, rather than your kiddos’ toys strewn about.

When selecting furniture for your space, always opt for storage. Cabinets can house toys, household items, electronics and more, but on the outside they’ll look sophisticated and blend right into your style. No one will ever know what’s inside!

When choosing accessories and decorative trinkets, keep things simple to eliminate a crowded feeling. We love to use narrow vases with fresh flowers for end tables, and mix books with small accessories on bookshelves. Choose furniture that truly fits your space, so you don’t have to sidestep around it.

Elegance doesn’t always have to equal weeks of hard work and unexpected complications. Sometimes simple touches and upgrades do the most for your space—and your bank account!
