Spring Spruce Ups
Home is where the heart is, but sometimes our homes need a little upgrade here and there to get our hearts excited. When it comes to interior design and home upgrades, there are lots of things that can be done that are affordable and make a dramatic impression in your living spaces.
While big upgrades can get phenomenal looks and increase a home’s value, smaller, affordable fixes are excellent starts to give rooms extra character and flair. So, before you start worrying about a large price tag for home improvements, take a look at these simple ways to splurge.
Add a coat of paint
Using paint is a quick and easy way to get new looks for a relatively small price. With today’s innovations, you can change just about anything with a fresh coat of paint: walls, countertops, appliances and exterior doors can be primed and ready for a new look. And it’s not just a color change. There are many paint kits available that can mimic other surfaces like stone and stainless steel.
Install a backsplash
An important area to consider upgrading is the kitchen. Backsplashes do more than just protect walls. Add some color to complement your existing kitchen or provide a striking contrast. Backsplashes can be installed with some DIY know-how with many backsplash options such as peel-and-stick kits.
Upgrade your handles
Instead of replacing your cabinets, consider updating their look by installing/upgrading some cabinet handles. This simple addition is a subtle way to change the look of a room.
Improve your walls
Add a bit of luxury to your rooms when you install things like chair rails, picture rails or crown molding. There are even crown molding kits that will allow for simple installs. Each of these wall options are inexpensive and go a long way towards changing the look of your home.
Change faucet/light fixtures
Upgrading your fixtures is another go-to improvement solution that will immediately impact the look of a room. With the wide range of fixtures available, it’s easy to find a budget-friendly option.
Declutter and deep clean
A simple way to make your rooms more spacious is by getting rid of stuff you don’t need. Donate or sell things you don’t need to free up more space in your home. Giving your interior and exterior a good deep clean will also make your home feel like new.
Don’t be afraid to experiment and have some fun changing the look of your home. While improvement budgets vary, the desire for something new and beautiful is all you need to change your space.
