Feeling like your living space or rental’s decor is a little outdated? There is no better time than now to make some simple adjustments to the interior to turn it from drab to fab!
There are countless ways that take little time and little money to make a big difference in your home. Here are some home renovation tips that won’t break the bank, or your back, but will help make things feel fresh and new.
First step: Rearrange. Go for a walk and then come back and look at your room with fresh eyes. Maybe it’s always been arranged like that but ask yourself: Is this the most practical way for the furniture to be arranged? How about aesthetics? Is there a simple move you can make to see the room in a whole new way? Give it a try!
It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to make a space feel brand new! Did you know that the color of a room can make a major impact on your mood? It’s true. Adding an exciting color to one wall as a statement or freshening up your old paint with a brighter hue can make the entire room feel updated!
Add a gallery wall.
Take some of your favorite statement pieces or some local artwork and create a gallery wall in your home. Organizing and hanging them in a complementary and creative way not only adds your own flair to a boring wall but it also adds tons of character!
It can be as simple as adding a few colorful throw pillows or a fun rug. It literally and visually makes any space more comfortable!
Bring out books.
Grab some of your favorite reads or head to the local Goodwill bookstore or a garage sale to pick up some discount books. You can organize them in a beautiful way that not only adds something interesting visually but gives your guests plenty of entertainment to choose from!
Determine what are tasteful trinkets and what is just clutter.
Simplify. Take a look at your bookshelves, cabinets, tables. What tasteful treasures and trinkets add a cultural touch and what are just taking up space? Consider donating the items you are ready to part with. Extra tip: Fill your space with some plants and greenery to make it feel more open!
One step at a time, you can make even your most treasured room even more exciting. Happy decorating!
