- Unique fireplace
Fire places are increasingly becoming a fashion statement. Choose a modern looking fireplace or add to one you already have. Stone, metal and glass fireplaces are on the rise.

Almost every home can be upgraded by adding beautiful, modern light fixtures. Go for a big change and add a stylish chandelier, or opt for small bedside and end table lamps. You can add some funky, artistic patterns here with small lamp shades without contrasting your main interior design theme.
- Set up a home library
Whether you are a book lover or not, creating an elegant library in your home is the easiest way to add sophistication and class.

Contrary to popular belief, this can be a low budget add to most mid – large size rooms.

The elegance of your home depends a lot on your floor. Invest in modern, functional flooring. Most modern homes are opting for natural stain engineered hardwood flooring or durable vinyl flooring that looks like wood. Opt for wood that is oil-stained for an even more earthy look.
