smart home to save energyIn a rapidly evolving world, our homes shouldn’t be left behind when it comes to modernisation! Whether you are looking to increase your property’s value, make a remarkable first impression on visitors, or simply integrate the latest technologies for a more comfortable life – home modernisation is worth the effort. In this guide, we’ll bring you our top five tips for breathing new life into your space.

Go Green

Curating an eco-friendly home is the first step towards modernisation. Start by replacing any traditional light bulbs with energy-saving LED alternatives. You should also start opting for energy-efficient appliances. Doing this will save you money on your electricity bills, whilst also reducing your carbon footprint.

Although you can make all of the above changes and notice a difference, there is more to consider when modernising any space. It’s important to remember the most important factor in ensuring your home is ‘green’ is effective insulation.

Double glazing for your windows can be a game-changer, saving on heating costs by reducing heat loss in winter and keeping your home cooler in the summer. Here’s how to ensure maximum eco-friendliness in your home as you modernise:

  • Check all double glazed windows and doors for any damage or faults. If you have steamed up or misty windows, this can be a sign your double glazing has failed and needs replacing.
  • You should check your windows often to make sure your home is insulated effectively. Any broken sealant around your panes means air and moisture can enter the space between the glass, reducing how insulative your efforts can be.

Quality double glazing also insulates against noise pollution, making your space quieter and more peaceful.

Get Smart

Discussions surrounding the future of modern homes often centre around the use of smart technology. Introduce a convenient smart home system that integrates devices and appliances, allowing you to control them from your smartphone.

Smart home appliances and apps can manage and optimise an impressive range of elements within the home, with timers set to revolve around your daily routines. Automated lighting, heating, and security settings make everyday tasks seamless whilst also conserving energy.

Lighten Up

Carefully considered use of natural light can transform your home! Create an illusion of space and breathe life into otherwise dull areas by ensuring your windows are sun-facing, free of clutter and – perhaps most importantly – clean! Again, if your windows are misty and obscuring the sunlight, check whether your double glazing needs repairing.

In some houses, sun-facing windows are not an option. However, there are other ways you can brighten up your space. If a full renovation is out of the question, consider installing larger windows to allow more light in. Velux windows are a great way to let light into the home. You could also simply switch up your window coverings, reducing the amount of coverage or installing fixtures that allow greater control over how much sunlight enters the home.

Introducing indoor plants, decluttering, and choosing lighter paint colours can also significantly brighten your home, adding a modern, fresh feel.

Upgrade Security

Enhancing your home’s security is a smart move in modernising your space. Consider investing in motion sensor lights, video doorbells, and state-of-the-art alarm systems for added peace of mind.

When people think about securing their home, these additions are often the first upgrades that spring to mind. However, our key tip is to first focus on making sure your existing windows and doors are secure. Without doing this, any additional gadgets may be rendered useless. Our key tips are:

  • Don’t overlook the importance of robust external doors and double-glazed windows! These will not only insulate against weather and noise, but also provide a solid defence against intruders.
  • If you don’t have double glazing, having this installed throughout the home should be your first port of call. The two panes of glass in double glazing are much more effective security barriers than the one pane in single glazing. Knowing you have double glazing can also act as a deterrent to potential thieves.
  • Remember double glazing isn’t invincible. It’s also important to check your windows and doors are free from splits in the seal, cracks, or anything else that may signify a weak spot that could be used to enter the home.
  • Don’t forget to check your locks, handles and hinges. Even if your double glazing is airtight, a faulty door handle can be easy to manipulate. Our specialists can repair and replace any locks, handles and hinges.

New Furniture

Nothing says ‘modern’ quite like sleek, contemporary furniture that’s been selected to match your space. Consider upgrading your old, worn-out pieces for new ones that reflect your style and personality.

Experiment with throws and cushions to add depth, texture, and a dash of modern flair. Choosing furniture with clean lines and minimalistic design can also contribute to a more contemporary look.
