There are some very easy ways to improve your home, and they won’t cost you an entire renovation either! So let’s take a look at a few of the ways you can give your home a makeover, and love coming back again!
This first step is the easiest and least expensive way to pump up your home. Paint your door! That’s it. Slap a fresh coat of paint on your front door, and you’ll instantly see your home in a new light or instead of painting it, give it an excellent cleaning and make it shine again! The first thing anyone sees, or even you see if your front door, you’ll be surprised at what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes; and while you’re at it get a new welcome mat too, or buy your first one. Either way, the two go hand in hand.
From the outside looking in, or the inside looking out; one sure way to change your outlook on your home is the switch up the drapes! Even if you don’t use curtains, get some, or replace or repaint your shutters, like the Front door, this change will impact the exterior and can be felt throughout the home. Sticking with neutral colors here will help to keep in line with whatever décor or pattern you’ve chosen for the rest of the rooms.
Brighten the place up
Aside from the usual idea to paint your walls again (which isn’t a bad idea either), changing up your lighting scheme house wide can be another refreshing change for you and your home. Whether it happens to be better bulbs, new fixtures, or a change in placement, you actually will be seeing your home in a new light once you are done with this step.
Same old idea, bold new look
Another often overlooked area to boost how you feel about your home would be your handles and your covers. It’s one of the last things people think of if they ever reflect on it all. Give your door handles, and light switch covers either a good hard cleaning or repaint/replace them all together. These are just some small areas that get damaged or scuffed and dirtied through their lifetime and an easy pick-me-up like this can do a world of good to the rest of the ambiance of the home.
These are four simplest ways you can fix up parts of your home that will leave you feeling in less of a rut, and may even spur you on to other simple projects that will improve the look of your home. It just goes to show, you don’t have to do a full renovation to start loving your home again!
