Replace Old Appliances with More Efficient Versions

If you live in an older home, one of the best ways you can modernize your home is by adding new appliances. Almost all appliances nowadays are energy-efficient. So, the beginning of modernizing your home is to get new AC units, boilers or furnaces. Even if you are going with something cheaper, it is way more energy-efficient than an appliance that is over 15 years old. For the ultimate change, you can combine adding new appliances and then improving your insulation by installing new windows. You will not only make your home more modern, energy-efficient but you will also drastically boost its value.

Install a Modern Programmable Thermostat

There is nothing that will make your home look more modern than having a programmable thermostat. But besides making your home look more modern, a programmable thermostat will help you achieve an optimal temperature at a minimal cost. That is because you will be able to turn on your heat just as you are about to come home, so it’s nice and warm instead of having the heat on the whole day.

Make Your Water System More Efficient

Most modern houses nowadays have very efficient water systems. There are many different ways you can save on your water bills and make your house look super modern. Install different plumbing fixtures that are low-flow. Many of them are adjustable, so you can set them up however you like. Installing things such as low-flow fixtures and bidets will make your home more sustainable as well as sleek and modern. Another thing that you can do is install tankless heaters that will produce water on demand instead of having hot water all the time.

Improve Your Home Lighting

Another great way to modernize your home is simply by switching all of your bulbs to LED ones. Once you have new bulbs that are not only going to last much longer but are also more energy-efficient, you can change out your light fixtures for more modern style ones. But a great way you can improve your lighting that will also make your home super modern is by adding more natural lighting. Adding things like skylights will increase the value of your home and give it a massive solar gain. It is one of the best decisions homeowners in colder climates can make as it will add natural warmth during colder months.

One of the simplest ways you can make your home modern is by making a coffee bar in your kitchen or dining area. There are so many brewing methods you can choose from when it comes to your coffee maker, but where you choose will make your home look modern.

Add A Smart Refrigerator

The biggest appliance in your kitchen is probably your refrigerator, so the best and simplest way you can modernize your kitchen fast is by adding a smart refrigerator. They come in so many different features and colors, so they can bite just about anybody’s style. Smart refrigerators can find your recipes, give you a place where you can write your grocery list that will sync up with your phone, replace your family calendar and even keep your inventory. But the most important thing is that they are energy-efficient and they boost your home value.

Spruce Up Your Curb Appeal

Not a lot of people think about their curb appeal, but it is one of the crucial points when you are making your home more modern. First impressions matter the most, no matter if you want to sell your home or not. Having landscaping that is neat and classy will make your whole house look sleek and modern.

  • Thank you for sharing! This is really important information, because today people are very concerned about whether their housing is energy efficient. After all, everything is getting more expensive, including electricity and water, and the environmental condition requires a more conscious approach. Thanks again.

  • Nice post! I especially like the idea of adding more natural lighting. There is an opinion that natural light makes people more productive and raises their spirits.

  • Thank you for sharing such helpful content! I think this article will be especially helpful for homeowners who want to add value to their homes before selling.

  • Yeah, the big benefit of having a smart thermostat is saving money on electricity. You can just set it to a lower temperature while you’re away and program it to be at your preferred temperature by the time you return. Gone are the days spent needlessly heating an empty house. BUT. You should also remember that too low a temperature can cause frozen pipes and then to burst. If winter in your city is pretty cold, you’re forced to keep your house warm enough just to prevent it.

  • Oh, yes, switching to LEDs is one of the best home improvements that help to save a tidy sum on utility bills. If you translate it into numbers, compared to conventional incandescent lights, LEDs can live up to 25 times longer and consume up to 90% less energy.
    With LED lights in your bedroom, living room, kitchen, and every room in between, you can cut at least $225 per year in energy costs.
