Oftentimes, the only thing that an outdated living space needs is a sprinkle of pick me up to create a fresh new look. If your home needs a little TLC or is starting to look outdated, but you’re not interested in breaking the bank or going the extra mile with renovations, then the following pointers will give your space the updated new look it deserves!
Paint: Painting can add a whole new life to a tired space. The possibilities are endless when it comes to painting as there are so many different colours and styles to choose from. Whether it’s on the inside or the outside, a coat of paint will dramatically improve the look and feel of your home. Painting a house is the best bang for your buck when looking to increase home value.
De-clutter: The coming of spring normally calls for a deep cleaning which is a perfect time to de-clutter. Revamping your home is only a matter of getting rid of the old, dated and worn-out things that are no longer useful. De-cluttering creates space in the home and brings clarity to your mind.
Updating hardware and fixtures: Changing out cabinet handles in the bathroom or kitchen, updating the faucets on the sinks, or switching up a few light fixtures can make a world of difference in your house. After installing a few minor updates, you’ll feel like you’ve made some major changes.
Outside: There are several things you can do to improve the curb appeal of your home. Many of these tasks only take a little bit of time and are often inexpensive. Some examples are: trimming trees and bushes, cleaning eaves troughs, weed-whacking or even adding a few perennial plants.
Window treatments: New blinds or drapes are great options when needing to freshen your space. There are so many different choices for choosing blinds. If you are looking for a deal, check out used items online, the bargain areas of retail stores or garage sales.
Cabinets: There is no need to get new cabinets when old cabinets can be refinished, or a new stain added. Sometimes it takes a little time and elbow grease to get the job done, but you will notice a tremendous difference for a low cost.
