Modern Renovation Ideas To Spark Inspiration

Have you ever seen a house on television or in a magazine and dreamt about making some inspiring changes to your own home? Or do you know that your home needs a fresh change, but you can’t quite put your finger on exactly what that change should be? We’ve collected some of the best modern renovation ideas that could spark your next home project for 2023 and beyond.

Add A Pop Of Colour To Your Bathroom

Ready to say goodbye to plain white bathrooms? Why not add some colour to your bathroom with new tiling, a new basin, and fresh hardware? Using coloured tiles as an accent or simply painting your walls is a way to do this without blowing your budget, and can help inject some life into a previously unlively part of the house. Sage green has been a very popular colour in recent years, as has terrazzo, and other earthy tones such as ochres and dusky browns are set for a comeback.

Go Wild For A Walk-In Shower

While we’re on the topic of renovated bathrooms, a bigger modern renovation you can consider that will add class and value to your home is a new walk-in shower. By taking out that boxy old shower, you’ll create a sense of luxury, space and light, and you’ll also find a walk-in shower far easier to clean. Add in an overhead rainfall shower head, and you’ll be in heaven every time you bathe.

Add In A Mudroom

Mudrooms have been increasing in popularity over the years, being side or back entries to a home that allow for special transition from the outdoors to the home. They can add distinct character to a home whilst also being quite practical, giving you a spot to take off your shoes and outerwear before heading into the house for dinner at the end of a long day. You can be as modern or as classic with this modern renovation idea.

Create A Study Nook

Study nooks have become far more popular thanks to many people transitioning to a work-from-home lifestyle yet still wanting distinction between a work space and a leisure space. By creating a study nook, you can designate a place for quiet work and study without having to set aside an entire room or extend your home

 

Add A Butler’s Pantry

If you’re a fan of TV shows such as The Block, you’ve probably noticed that barely any kitchens get renovated without a butler’s pantry. Originating in 19th century England and America, the butler’s pantry was a special place for food preparation, as well as a  storage area for silver and china. In the homes of the wealthy, it was also the place where butlers and other members of staff got work done, hence the name. 

A butler’s pantry is one of the best modern renovation ideas for your home if you have the space for one. They give you a place to hide your cooking and cleaning whilst entertaining guests, and also serve as an expansive pantry for the family.

Treat Yourself To A Walk-In Wardrobe

Once reserved for wealthy fashionistas, walk-in wardrobes are now a staple in many homes and are an ideal way to keep your clothing and shoe collection neatly stored. For walk-in wardrobes that don’t have natural lighting, some interesting, dramatic lighting can really add to the space.

Expand Your Open & Outdoor Living Space

Open planned living is a fantastic way to create a seamless transition from between rooms and from the outdoors to the indoors, so why not add this to your personal list of modern renovation ideas? Expanding a veranda or opening up a previously confined room can be a big project, but it really will breathe life into your home once completed.

These are just a few modern renovation ideas that we here at Hyspec can help you achieve! Feel free to get in touch for an obligation-free quote from our friendly team today.

These guys went above & beyond their duty when constructing our deck. They faced numerous obstacles due to the nature of the old existing deck, and throughout the entire process they were professional, thorough, neat & tidy, and their attention to detail was of the highest standard. We will always highly recommend the team from Hyspec Constructions 😊

Hyspec Constructions & Roofing completely transformed our 1950’s fibre house to a modern and contemporary clad home. The advice and workmanship from Brett, Luke and the team was second to none. Many people have commented that we got it ‘just right’ and this is no small part to Hyspec. Thanks boys, we are so happy with the end result.

We made the best decision to get Hyspec to build our 2 decks and 2 pergolas and an amazing feature stairs to lead us from one deck to the other. Brett, Luke and their team of skilled tradesmen were a delight to have around. From our first meeting I felt at ease with Brett and his vast building knowledge and creative ideas to help us plan our dream backyard. The boys worked with great skill, passion for detail and care to see the job was done right the first time. Brett was flexible, always willing to listen and also ready to suggest any alterations to the plans which would improve the end result as the project progressed. His team were great guys who took pride in their work and always left the site clean at the end of each day. If you are looking for a great local builder in the shire I would recommend Hyspec construction and roofing highly. Thanks Brett, Luke and the Hyspec team, we love our new decks and spa pergolas.

Brett and the boys put up a privacy screen along my deck. Right from the start I got honest advice and, most importantly, the job done when he said he was going to do it and completed on time with a quality finish. The finish is beyond what I expected, all waste materials were neatly cleaned up leaving me to kick back with a cold one and enjoy their hard work. Cheers guys.
