Having a modern-looking home isn’t always easy, especially if you have a tight decorating budget. Fortunately, there are ways that you can get the high-end look you dream of, even on a budget. Creating a change in your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take weeks to complete. There are simple, affordable ways to freshen up and give every room a boost. You don’t have to give a room a full-on makeover to make it feel new.

Everyone wants a nice relaxed and comfortable home. Your home should be so welcoming and pleasant that you’re eager and excited to get home from work every day. Your home should be where the heart is. It’s the only place where you can kick your shoes to the side and relax.

Which elements in your home make you feel at ease? Look for the small elements and try to update them. From adding pillows and a fresh coat of paint to window treatments and hardwood floors, here are a few inexpensive ways to bring a new look and feel to your home.

Take a look at the crown molding

The furniture and pieces you have in your home are all about the details. And for creating a modern home, details are key. You should, for instance, inspect the crown molding in your home. If detail is your top priority, the crown molding is the first thing to look at. Crown molding can make any room look complete or finished as it brings the ceiling and the walls together. It gives them an elegant appearance. A room without this tend to look cheap or unfinished. Crown molding is relatively inexpensive, especially the plastic, paintable ones. It’s affordable on almost any budget. There are a variety of widths to choose from but if you want a greater impact, it’s best to choose the widest trim that your budget will allow.

Add a new coat of paint

Deciding on the colour of a specific room is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions to make when decorating a room. It’s especially hard when the remaining decor is based on the colour palette. But if a modern look is what you’re after, there are certain colours that add instant glamour to your home. You could either go for bold and dramatic or a softer colour. These options will allow you to add instant elegance to your home. It depends on your colour personality in terms of which option you choose. It’s important to paint the walls a colour that goes with your furniture or flooring. It’ll add the extra modern touch to your home.

Painting the doors inside your home black is another option to go for. It’ll automatically create an expensive feeling, which can be done on a budget. If you go for this option, it’s important to add some black accessories to the space to tie the overall design together.

Change your bedding

It’s important to have a schedule for cleaning and organising your bedding. You should change your sheet and covers regularly. A modern home is all about cleanliness and tidiness. So it’s important to keep your bedding clean. You could pick out a new comforter or pillow shams to instantly jazz up the bedroom. Maybe grandma’s quilt has been on the bed for long enough and it’s time to bring out the Carribean feel you’ve always wanted. Try out some trendy striped, solid or botanical bedding sets. The floral patterns will allow you to enjoy modern bed sheets for years to come.

Choose the right pillows

The pillows throughout your home serve a specific purpose. If you choose them correctly, they could really punch up the modern factor. It also provides your guests with a little extra comfort on the couch and offers a cosy, layered feeling to your rooms. If you choose pillows that are large enough to rest on, the comfort aspect speaks for itself. When it comes to size, it’s best to avoid the standard 12 to 16 inches for a throw pillow. Instead, choose something bigger, such as a 20-inch pillow cover stuffed with 22-inch inserts. The large, overstuffed pillows will create a plush, modern appearance.

Window treatments

Your home will appear cheap and unfinished if it doesn’t have window treatments. This is one of the most budget-friendly ways to add a modern touch to your home. And much-needed privacy, of course. When choosing your window treatments you want to make smart choices. For example, if you choose unlined flimsy materials it’ll look terribly cheap, even if it’s the least expensive option. It’s recommended to avoid see-through materials. But this doesn’t mean you can’t buy off-the-rack curtains. For window treatments, it’s best to stick with elegant materials such as natural silk, linen and cotton.

Finish off your home by investing in the Airoma Essence Range. That will bring a new and fresh smell into your home. You don’t have to do much to create a new look in your home. And everything can be done on a restricted budget.
