While you love your home, there are times when it will need a little more attention than just a good cleaning. Perhaps rooms are starting to show wear and tear, or certain areas appear outdated. You know you need to do something, but you’re not ready to commit to a total renovation or have the time to take on big projects.
Fortunately, there are several ways you can revitalize your home without having to commit large amounts of time and money. Consider getting started with one or all of the following five easy projects.
Add Fresh Paint to Your Entryway and Living Area
Perhaps the easiest way to change the look and feel of a room is to paint it a new color. Your entryway and living room are the areas you and your guests first see upon entering your home. As such, this is a good area to match up with a specific color scheme to provide a dramatic effect. Let the paint colors speak to your personal style and overall aesthetics.
Update Kitchen Cabinetry
While replacing kitchen tile or countertops can be a timely and potentially costly endeavor, one easier way you can revitalize your kitchen is to replace cabinetry doors. New cabinet doors can transform the look of a kitchen. Be sure to look for ones that match up with your kitchen’s existing look to avoid having to make additional changes.
Replace Outdated Bathroom Fixtures
Your bathroom is often in need of updates. Changing the color of the towels, however, will only get you so far and will do nothing to cover up those outdated fixtures. Now could be the right time to replace the sink faucets with stylish new ones. Also, exchange your old showerhead with a rainforest one or other such option. No plumbing skills are required. As an added bonus, these new fixtures can save you money on your next water bill as well.
Replace Window Treatments in Your Bedroom
The design choices for a bedroom can quickly become outdated if the same window treatments are left in place for too long. If you currently have blinds which constantly collect dust, or have dark and dull curtains preventing incoming light, it’s time to consider other options. Seek out window treatments that accent what the room has to offer and fit your personal design style, as well as privacy needs.
Spruce Up Your Front Entrance Exterior
While creating curb appeal is important if you’re selling your house, it can also be an important way to revitalize your home while you still live there. Depending on your particular front entrance set up, you can take on a number of projects to make it more inviting. Replace the front door, or try painting it a new color. Create an outdoor space to enjoy by adding a rug, swing, and comfortable chairs. Top it off with a few potted plants.
Revitalizing your home doesn’t always have to include long hours and big expenses. These five easy projects can create changes that will let you see your home in a new way in less time.
