Some homes need a full remodel but others can be totally transformed with some thoughtful updates. Changing up just a few things in your home can leave you feeling refreshed and cozy in your home once again.
Reflect your lifestyle
One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when remodeling their homes is to focus on the trends. The reality is that your home shouldn’t reflect the trends – it should reflect your taste, style, and lifestyle. Walk through your home and decide what really reflects your style. You might keep your backsplashes, appliances, and flooring.
Create a list of priorities
You can’t start until you know exactly what you’re trying to accomplish. Sit down and write out your top priorities. For example, if your top priority is new furniture then you’ll begin by looking for stylish pieces like a new coffee table, lounge chair, or sofa. Identifying your priorities and starting with those pieces will give you a center to focus the rest of your updating around.
Window coverings are your key to the outside world
Changing lighting fixtures and accessories can take a room from dark and foreboding to bright and cozy. For example, a room with heavy velvet drapery can be totally transformed when light and breezy window coverings are added. They bring a new color and texture to the room and let homeowners see the outdoor adventures just beyond their windows.
Don’t discount a simple coat of paint
Stretching the budget and time commitments of an update can almost always include painting. This doesn’t mean you have to paint every wall in your home. In fact, sometimes fewer changes can have a bigger impact. For example, consider painting the cabinets in your kitchen. You can turn a dark space into a light and breezy one with a simple can of white paint.
Make your focal points pop
Do you have a particular piece of art that you want to be the focal point of a room? Do you have design elements that simply aren’t being done justice? If so, consider painting around them. For example, a plain white wall with some gallery-quality lighting is the perfect backdrop for an incredible piece of art.
