Looking to give your space a new look without breaking the bank?
Try these simple, cost effective tips to freshen up any room!
- New Paint
A paint job is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to transform the look and feel of your home. Depending on the color scheme you choose, you can create an entirely new feel within your interior space. While more neutral tones can be used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, brighter hues will make the living space feel more vibrant and energetic.
- Use Mirrors
Use decorative mirrors to add instant light to your living space. Mirrors can also be used to make a small space feel larger. For more spacious rooms or areas with limited amount of natural light, placing the mirror directly across from the window will add instant light. Decorative mirrors can also be used in place of art to fill empty wall space. Large or small, mirrors add light and dimension to your living space.
- Mix it up
Mixing patterns and textures whether it be furniture, rugs or pillows, varied colors and patterns can bring warmth and texture into your living space. There’s nothing wrong with placing family heirlooms alongside your modern couch. The most important aspect to decorating your home is that it reflects who you are, your personality and your style.
- Add Baskets
Baskets are an economical way to add storage to any room. They can be used to store and display books, magazines, toys, towels and blankets to name a few. Placing a small basket on the counter-top in your kitchen or on your kitchen table is a great way to store your fruits and vegetables while adding a pop of color!
Use What You Have
Instead of running to the store, take a good look at what you already have. Trays, baskets and bowls as well as blankets, pillows and lamp shades can add extra texture and dimension to any area and space. Just dig them out or switch them out with a different room. You will be amazed at what you can do with what you already have!
