Pure lime paint with water is the most economical and ecological way to add a modern charm in your house. Designers recommend white as a good option to keep the house fresh and crisp.

If your home is built with concrete, wood, and light material, a layer of insulating material like glass fiber and steel lamination can be bold and sensational.

15. ​Compressed wood

Compressed wood can be a chic, light, and versatile option for your home. Take an example from this home.

16. ​Microcemento

Microcemento is a flexible option to give your house a rugged look. A lot of stylish and colorful options can be availed and this can be a path towards generating warmth and harmony in the house.
