Use Neutrals

Planning on painting your walls anytime soon? When it comes to giving your interior a modern facelift, neutral colors are the best. Clean shades like white or light gray not only make decorating a simple chore, but they also help to brighten the inside of your home, helping it to not only appear sleeker, but also bigger and more luxurious.

Install Stainless Steel Appliances
Sorry to break it to you, but that old green refrigerator your parents passed down to you just doesn't cut it in a contemporary home. When picking new appliances for your remodel, stainless steel units will add the modern look you are hoping for, while also complementing any existing rustic style your home is still holding on to.

Opt for Metallic Details
One of the quickest and most budget friendly ways to add a touch of contemporary flair to your home is to switch out your old hardware for new, bright metallic shades. By utilizing stainless steel hardware on your cabinets, faucets, and more, you will effectively tie together the new theme of your house instantly.

Open Your Floor Plan
The calling card of contemporary homes is their open floor plan. This emerging style not only gives your home a new, hip flow, it also gives the illusion of increased square footage. Whether you open your floor plan simply by rearranging furniture and storage or go all out by taking down a few walls, this layout is the perfect way to give your home an update.

From DIY projects to major renovations, homeowners all across the country are turning their homes into contemporary paradises. Get started transforming yours with the help of Total Home KC, and enjoy the extra style and value for years to come.
