Giving your house a new lease of life is easier than you think. A few little updates can make all the difference; you don’t need to redecorate the whole house, add a few small touches, some new, and unique accessories and you’ll fall in love with your home again.
Give Your Home A Lick Of Paint
A fresh of paint can make a world of difference to any room. Whether it’s a new color or even just a fresh coat of the old one, it will brighten up your room and make it feel fresh again. It’s also a fun job, picking colors and getting samples, or today you can actually upload photos of your room to websites and virtually apply color to your walls, giving you the chance to see how a shade will look in your home before you even go to the shop. People forget about the outside of their house too, but a lick of paint on the exterior will make a considerable difference as well. You might need to get a professional painter to come in, but it’ll be worth it to be the envy of all your neighbors.
Bring In Some Green
Add some plant life to your house with some greenery. Plants are perfect for maintaining air quality, and they also add an organic element to your decor. Many plants are able to be grown indoors without much effort. Start off small with a herb garden indoors as all you need is just a pot or two and some space in your kitchen. Choose herbs like basil that require a lot of water, and make sure you keep them hydrated.
Make life easier for yourself, and organize your home at the same time as you update it. Invest in things like chalkboards, pin boards, and shared calendars which not only look good but can keep everyone in your house clear about what’s going on each week. Put up hooks for bags and coats and place shoe racks underneath. Get a beautiful plate or bowl for near the front door where you can keep keys and loose change, and get yourself a letter rack in the hall too.
Throws and cushions are makeup for your living room and are brilliant because you can change them depending on how you are feeling and what season it is. The effect is nothing short of transformative so if your room is feeling a bit dull, try adding a few pillows in vibrant colors to bring more uplifting vibes to your living room furniture. Throws and rugs can also do the same, and your room and the best thing about new accessories is that they don’t have to be expensive. Then treat yourself to some unique pieces that will add to the decor. Have a look at some art or antiques and put some photos up!
