Modernising a home can seem like a tricky task, but if you use some simple tips and tricks as a guide, you'll have a beautifully contemporary home in no time at all! Professional interior designers make it look so easy to get the modern look, which is why we have paid close attention to the motifs that they put in place to capture a more exciting aesthetic and today, we're going to let you in on 10 of the best. Perfect for every room from your living room to your bathroom, there are a medley of brilliant ideas to copy here, so let's take a look and see which ones you can see yourself trying out!

1. Ditch the patterns.

If you want a modern look to your home, you might want to consider sticking to block colours for your walls, as patterns can look a little too busy or old fashioned. By all means use patterns elsewhere, but your walls can stand some singular colour choices.

2. Display some contemporary art.

Statement modern art is a quick and easy way to inject any room with some seriously contemporary vibes and with so many pieces being oversized, you might only need one, which means you can afford to invest in something you really love.

3. Organise your books creatively.

Modern homes always seem to make so much more of ordinary items, such as books. Keep your most treasured tomes out on display and even backlit, if you can, to make them a feature!

4. Add in some bright colour.

A little vibrant colour goes a long way when you are hoping to make your home look more modern, but you don't have to go crazy by investing in lots of expensive items. A colourful bookshelf here and a few bright cushions there are all you may need!

5. Add in some glass.

Glass furniture always has a futuristic look, which is perfect for really capturing the modern aesthetic. A crystal clear dining table is a wonderful investment, but smaller side and coffee tables work just as well!

6. Accessorise with ethnic textiles.

Now HERE is where you can add some diverse patterns back in! Opting for ethnic textural accessories, such as rugs, throws and cushions, will brighten up a space and layer your aesthetic in a wonderfully modern way. 

7. Create an unusual space.

Modern interior design always seems to add in a surprise here and there, which is why you need to do the same, if your want your home to be tangibly more contemporary. We always love innovative under-stair installations, so whether you choose an indoor garden or a small home office, the more unusual your choice, the better! 

8. Try an unusual furniture layout.

Traditional living rooms will normally have two sofas and a coffee table, but to bring a little modernity into play, perhaps you should think about mixing things up a little? Some armchairs, a large footstool and extra, unusual seating will all keep guests guessing and your room looking very up to date.

9. Experiment with scale.

Back in the day, keeping everything very proportional was THE style, but for a modern home, you need to add in some oversized accessories! The large industrial lampshades here are a perfect example of what we mean and just look at the way they dominate the whole space!

10. Swap out curtains for blinds.

Modern homes always seem to favour simpler decorating ideas, which is why stylish blinds have overtaken curtains in the race to be the preferred window dressing! Wooden venetian styles are particularly beautiful and allow you to have the sun streaming in, without any loss of privacy too. Genius!
