It’s so tempting to experiment with different looks all the time. While that’s easier to do with fashion, your house is a different story. You’d blow through all your savings if you renovate your house as often as you change clothes!
Good thing renovations aren’t your only options though. Here are 7 easy ways you can give your house a facelift:
REFRESH WALL PAINT
It’s amazing how quickly daily wear-and-tear takes its toll on walls. It’s equally as amazing how a fresh coat of paint instantly refreshes your home to look brand-new again. And you don’t have to stick with the same shade of paint either. This is your chance to come up with a new colour scheme like an interior designer!
ADD EXTRA STORAGE SPACE
Expanding storage space in your house has a spillover effect of making it feel less cluttered, which is an indirect facelift itself. One great way to add extra storage space is by building the perfect window seat.
GET NEW WINDOW TREATMENTS
Window treatments not only spruce up your interior, but they also do wonders in boosting your curb appeal. As you pick your new window treatments, remember to narrow down your choices by function first and then style.
DECORATE THE VALANCES
After you’ve installed new window treatments, it’s time to decorate your valances to match the interior décor. You can have a lot of fun with this idea because there are so many valance styles you can choose from.
UPDATE LIGHTING AND PLUMBING FIXTURES
Lighting and plumbing fixtures also come in a variety of different styles so you’re bound to find a new one that matches the changes you’re making to the house interior. Details all the way down to the material and finish can make a bold statement in your home.
While you’re at it, it’s also a good idea to get lighting fixtures that are compatible with energy-efficient lightbulbs. Plumbing fixtures like faucets and showerheads should also be fitted with low-flow aerators to conserve water. These eco-friendly choices will go hand-in hand with your energy-saving strategy through smart window blind choices.
SWAP OUT HARDWARE
Another easy way to transform your home is swapping out hardware for new or re-purposed ones. This goes for not only cabinet and drawer hardware, but also those for door handles.
CLEAN OR CHANGE FURNITURE UPHOLSTERY
Your furniture are major eye-catching pieces in interior design as they’re often the anchor for the room’s colour scheme. Make them look new again by thoroughly cleaning or changing their upholstery.
If you have leather furniture, a neat trick is to use shoe polish to give them that extra glossy shine.
These ideas will satisfy anyone’s desire for a change in surroundings without being too hard on the wallet!
