Modern Living: Is Your Home in the 21st Century?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 5, 2013) - With spring just around the corner, now's the ideal opportunity to give your home a much needed makeover; to collate all your ideas together and create an interior design masterpiece! But where's the best place to start? Well, we suggest you start by renovating your humble abode. A fantastic means of giving your place a fresh feel is to incorporate modern trends into your decorating. Whether it's by checking out contemporary fireplaces at or through experimenting with bold colour schemes, it's time to bring your home into the 21st century.


For centuries, the fireplace has been the focal point of the home and it's safe to say that in the present day, things remain very much the same. However, the fundamental difference is that we're no longer restricted to a particular design; now we're free to choose from a vast collection of modern electric fires. With such a variety to select from you're certain to find one to suit your tastes, but remember to choose wisely! Wall mounted electric fires are perfect in establishing style and elegance, but if you'd prefer something more traditional then a inset electric fire could be for you; keep your options open!


One means of ensuring that your home is well and truly in the 21st century is to opt for a different colour scheme. From the bold and beautiful, to the bright and exciting, there's an infinite range of shades to play with. However, we suggest that you don't rush out and buy neon yellow just yet! Consider your preferences and research what's popular, this way you can successfully gauge which palette is right for you. A favourite amongst designers at the moment is emerald green. In their opinion, this colour is timeless yet full of energy, so why not give it a try?


A guaranteed way to make your home appear more contemporary is to be sure that you're up to date with the latest technology. Owning a television that's as old as you are is nothing to be proud of, so try to keep up with modern trends. And it doesn't have to cost a fortune! Thanks to deals on the high street, you'll be able to impress your friends for relatively low costs; well worth the investment!
