Modern house design is becoming more and more popular. This is mainly down to the expensive look of modern houses that can be achieved at a low cost. Below, we’ve come up with 4 ways you can give your home a modern feel.


Stay simple.

The key to a modern home is to think less is more. Modern houses always look really clean and open and this is down to staying simple. When decorating a room, start with a plain base: put a light neutral colour on the walls to brighten and open up the room, keep furniture minimalistic and don’t go over the top with lots of fancy lighting accessories. To bring colour into the room, pick one statement colour and get cushions or lamp shades in this colour but remember to still stay simple.


Get a gas fire.

Gas fires are great for achieving a modern look in your home. They can instantly make a home look expensive whilst actually saving you money in the long run. Many people use their expensive central heating a lot less once they opt for a gas fire. At Burning Inspirations, we offer installations of gas fires or can upgrade your current one with a more efficient fire that doesn’t require electricity.



Adding a bit of greenery to your home is very popular right now for people wanting a modern house design. Plants are a fantastic statement accessory in a simple room and also help to brighten it. Having plants can make your home feel very refreshing and can actually lift your mood and reduce stress.



This may sound like a boring step but one of the main aspects of a modern house design is to keep it tidy. As we said in our first point, a modern house always looks clean; this helps to give it a big, open feel and keep it looking simple. Finding quirky storage hacks is a great way to keep your home tidy.
