How can I modernise an old house?

Traditional, compartmentalised floor plans correlated heavily to building practices and social norms of their eras. However, open floor plans have become increasingly popular and are now seen as a common marker of modern design. Adopting an open floor plan within an older home promotes effortless flow throughout the kitchen and living areas while making your home feel brighter and more inviting. 

But modernisation isn’t all about aesthetics. Making functional upgrades such as eco-friendly greywater systems and solar panelling, smart charging stations, and underfloor heating will bring your home into the 21st century too.
