If you bought your home a few years ago or have been in your apartment for a while now, you may feel like your living spaces are outdated. After coming how to the same place every day, you may begin to get bored with your decor and desire a home refresh. While you may not want to move at this moment or completely remodel your space, there are some easy ways to change things up in your place. Here are a few tips to help you refresh your living space this year:
Change the pictures on the wall
Years may pass without you changing the pictures on your wall. While that’s perfectly fine, there’s something that a little picture changeup can do for your home. Instead of using pictures in frames, update your home by ordering canvas prints of your favorite pictures.
Install wallpaper on the restroom walls
If you bought your home a while ago, chances are that your bathrooms could use a little love. While retiling a restroom or two may be something that you want to do, it’s certainly a large investment. You could retile your bath but what if you simply installed wallpapers on the walls instead? This can provide a fresh look without the extra work and investment it would take to update your restroom.
Hire professional housecleaners to get a good deep cleaning of your restroom, so that it looks like new when you’re through with wallpapering. It may not be as exciting as getting new tiles, but it can definitely improve your restrooms.
Update your furniture
If you don’t have the budget for huge home renovations but you’d like to change things up, you can replace your furniture. While this isn’t a good idea if you’ve only had your couches or beds for a couple of years, butif it’s been a while and the wear and tear is beginning to take a toll, why not donate your old furniture to a charity while investing in new furniture that refreshes your home’s living spaces?
You could work with an interior designer to get the best advice for modern, trendy furniture that suits your home and the overall vibe that you’re going for.
Switch out bedding and living room accessories
It’s a good practice to update your bedroom items after a year or so, anyway. Stains and general wear and tear can happen over the years with your bedding and if you’d like to keep your home feeling fresh and welcoming, new bedding can be the perfect way to refresh your home.
If you like to use throw blankets and pillows in your living room, consider updating them as well. As seasons change, it’s always nice to update your blankets and pillows to go with the current vibe. Pastels are great for springtime while rich colors like burnt orange or magenta could be ideal for the cooler months of the year.
Consider minor remodeling
While you may not want to do an in-depth remodeling on your home because of the cost, consider minor touchups that can make a difference. Switching out light fixtures for a more modern feel can help your home look smooth and sleek.
Changing up your front door can help you update the curbside appeal of your home. There are simple changes that could result in a big update. Work with your contractor to determine the most cost-effective ways to update your home.
Remodeling your home may be something that you want to do but it’s not always that cost-effective. These simple changes can do a lot to freshen up the look of your home. From new pictures to better furniture for your living spaces, there are plenty of options for updating your home without having to invest thousands of dollars.
