Looking for easy and affordable ways to upgrade your home?
Sometimes, change can be far simpler than you thought – it simply requires a clever approach.
All you need to do is pick one major change – whether it’s the color, decor, or layout – and stick with it. Here are five simple changes that will a big difference in your home:
Upgrade Your Kitchen Equipment
If you spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen, upgrading your cooking equipment is a change that’s as good as a holiday. An induction stovetop, stylish induction cookware sets, and some upgraded appliances will refresh the space.
You’ll get a little shot of happiness every time you entertain guests, spend time with your family, or trudge home after a long day, seeking the warmth and homely comforts of the kitchen.
Shift Your Decor
According to Feng Shui, you can remove feelings of “same old” or “stuck” from your home by moving 27 items around. This could be anything from candles to couches.
Once you have new places for 27 items, your home will feel like new, and you won’t be the only one to notice. Don’t be surprised if visitors ask what you’ve done because the newness will feel so obvious and refreshing.
Make A Color Change
If you’re feeling brave and adventurous, you can choose a new color for your walls. This color makeover doesn’t have to involve painting or any other strenuous activities. A color change can be as simple as bringing in a few scatter cushions in a color that matches some new ornaments, vases, and maybe curtain tie-backs.
There has never been a better excuse to go shopping for gorgeous home decor and aesthetic tidbits. Changing the color scheme of your home is cheaper than a complete home makeover but it can give you the interior design facelift you’ve been craving.
Upgrade Your Curtains
Curtains can make or break a room. They frame your view of the outside world and can make a powerful statement, lengthening the appearance of walls and adding an air of sophistication to any room. In fact, curtains can subtly communicate a great deal about a home. They can set the tone.
Increase the perceived value of your decor by upgrading your curtains. Raise the curtain rail higher to make the windows appear larger and the walls appear longer. Tapered curtains and eyelet curtains remain some of the most trendy options available right now.
Paint Over Outdated Tiles
A few decades ago, bathrooms with brown tiles adorning the walls were considered stylish. Add dowdy floral designs to the mix, and you have a bathroom with zero aesthetic appeal. However, ripping tiles from your walls can be expensive, and it isn’t always a successful job if you decide to DIY it.
Did you know that it’s now possible to buy tile-painting kits from hardware stores? These come with special paint that adheres perfectly to tiles, allowing you to turn those drab tiles into a solid white wall. It’s cost-effective, and the end result is quite attractive.
Allow your mind to create a vision around your definition of homely, rejecting trends you might be tempted to follow for the sake of making an impression on other people. Your home has to be a safe space for you to kick off your shoes, cook your favorite dinner, and connect with your loved ones. What the setting for that looks like is entirely up to you.
