With the new year approaching, many people want to start fresh, which includes making upgrades to their home for 2017. However, the costs of a home renovation can seem intimidating. For those who want to tackle some home improvement projects, these tips might be all you need to achieve an updated look for less. Check out these four methods, which will not break your back or your wallet.
#1 Organize Your Bookshelves
Bookshelves are one of the most overlooked parts of a home. However, if you reorganize the contents based on color and size, you can improve the look of a room with just a few hours’ work. This decorating style tip is eye-catching and can make the bookshelf a focal point of the entire room. It’s also an excellent conversation starter. You may even discover books you forgot you had.
#2 Purge Clutter From Your Home
Excess clutter is one of the main reasons a home looks disordered. A dirty towel on the floor, a pile of shoes next to the door, piles of junk mail and other knick-knacks can affect the overall appearance of your space. By relocating, or even donating, small objects scattered throughout a room, you give it a streamlined appearance. Additionally, clean homes have been shown to reduce stress levels, adding to the health and happiness of you and your family.
#3 Hang a Mirror
A well-placed mirror can not only make a room look bigger, but it can also improve a home’s lighting and make it seem brighter. Place a mirror so it draws the eye and helps to reflect light back into a space. It’s easy to find affordable mirrors at local thrift stores. Hang them across from windows or behind accents to create an instant, dramatic look. Arrange multiple small mirrors on a single wall for a gallery effect.
#4 Repaint Your Home
Painting can be a tedious job, but it’s also an easy way to change the look of a room with minimal effort. Plus, painting supplies do not cost much money. Remember, when it comes to painting, planning and preparation go a long way. Try painting your kitchen with bright colors, and bedrooms or bathrooms in soothing neutrals to change the ambience of your entire home.
