4 Ways to Modernize Your Cabin with Simple Updates

If your cabin is old and boring, it’s time to breathe new life into it by giving it a modern makeover. There are quite a few different looks that you can achieve that will bring your home into the modern era with just a few simple updates.

Glass Features

As time passes, windows become scratched, cloudy and cracked. These old and worn windows ruin the aesthetic of your log home as well as compromise their ability to protect your home from drafts and rain. Residential window services can not only give your home a cleaner, more modern look, but it can also help reduce your monthly energy bills. For an added touch of style, you can have frameless glass doors installed in your home that are both sleek and modern.

Give Your Cabinets a Makeover

Depending on how old your home is, the wooden cabinets in your kitchen might be well overdue for a makeover. To give your kitchen a more modern and chic look, consider updating the color of your cabinets. Steel gray, pastels and natural wood colors are all becoming popular makeover colors that turn a boring kitchen into a modern kitchen. Giving your cabinets a color makeover is simple, easy and can be done over the course of one weekend.

Embrace the Minimalist Style

The minimalist style is one of the most recognizable takes on modern design. Not only is a minimalist style crisp and visually appealing, but it is also a simple style that requires the removal of items instead of the addition of items. There are many different concepts that qualify as minimalist styles, so it’s best for you to choose one that fits your log home and your personal preference.

Polished Metal

One look that stands apart from the crowd in defining modern decor is the use of polished metal. Stylish and crisp, polished metal is a staple addition in many cabins outfitted with a modern look. Kitchens will possess polished metal appliances while the polished metal cookware is put on display. Living rooms are decorated with polished metal statues, tables, and wall hangings. Don’t be afraid to experiment with polished metal touches in every aspect of your home.

While you’re updating your home to a more modern look, don’t neglect your walls. You’re going to want to update the color of your walls in addition to updating the decor and trimming on your walls as well.
