When you look around your home, you may feel the need to change things up a bit. However, you likely can’t afford an entire home remodel, and if you live in an apartment complex, you probably can’t change the color of your walls or replace your flooring. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that you can’t give you’re a home a fresh look. With a few, simple redecorating tips, your home can look and feel like new. Here’s how:
Rearrange the furniture
Perhaps the least expensive way to change up your home is to change up your furniture. Just placing your couch in a different area of the room, for instance, can drastically alter how that room feels and appears. Before you start moving things, however, try to plan it out by measuring and even drawing out the floorplan ahead of time. This will save you a lot of time and effort later on.
Change up your curtains
Another easy way to redecorate your home is to focus on your curtains. Trade out your old, dingy pair that you’ve had since you moved in for something brighter and more colorful to liven up your space. You can also make a room appear more spacious by replacing your current curtains with floor-to-ceiling curtains. The extra length will give the illusion of height, making the room appear larger than it really is.
Lay down a rug
Rugs have become a very popular trend in most homes. This is because many homeowners are ditching carpets and replacing them with hardwood floors. As such, they need something to keep their feet warm and comfy while also complementing their hardwood floors. Rugs have become the solution, and they can quickly make a space more inviting than it was before.
Hang up some artwork and mirrors
When redecorating a space, it can be easy to forget about your walls. However, hanging up new artwork or other wall accents can fundamentally change how your room appears. Artwork, for instance, can provide a more sophisticated appearance, while photos of your family can make a room feel homier. Mirrors, too, can also freshen up a room by creating the illusion of space in an area that lacks it.
Cut down on clutter
Sometimes, all your home needs is a good cleaning. Indeed, cutting down on clutter can make a world of difference, sometimes being more effective at freshening up your space than any type of new furniture or artwork can. Grab some storage bins and start going through the messier parts of your home. Donate items that you no longer use or need, and then organize the rest into your bins.
Add a few pops of color
Neutral colors have become all the rage in recent years thanks to a rise in popularity of the minimalist style. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean you have to forgo all color in your home. In fact, a pop of color in an otherwise neutral room can truly change up a space. It can be as simple as adding a colorful throw alongside your couch to help a room feel truly different and unique.
And add some flowers
Finally, a great way to liven up your space is to liven it up with flowers. A bouquet of your favorite flowers or a collection of wonderful houseplants can incorporate new colors and scents into your home. You can place them practically anywhere in your home, whether it be on your floor, on your kitchen counter, or on your coffee table.
