5 Tricks to Modernize Your Home

Modernizing your entire home doesn't necessarily mean you need to replace all of your pieces. This is certainly a situation where less can be more - you could transform the whole look of your space with these key items that we're seeing a lot more of.


1. Charging Stations Nightstand with Charging Station

Smartphones, tablets, MP3 players - we need a place to charge them without having to deal with clutter. If you're running out of room to charge your electronics or just don't want so many visible wires around your house, this is for you. This is also a convenient place to keep an extra charger around for guests. The sturdy drawers will protect your electronics and keep them out of the way while they charge.

If you take a look around, you'll notice that sectionals are getting sleeker and smaller. Opt for a modern leather design to complement the items you already own. Add vibrant decorative pillows to a neutral sectional if you're looking for a quick way to change your style frequently!
