Most of us have experienced the feeling of looking around our home and no longer being satisfied or inspired by its interior. Maybe you’re tired of the old, outdated style your home came with, or perhaps the wall color you once loved now feels drab and lifeless.
Regardless of your reasons, it’s inevitable that at some point, you’ll feel ready to refresh your home with new and inspiring updates. However, sometimes our budgets aren’t quite as big as our motivations for change.
Here are a few easy ways to refresh your home on a budget!
Change Up Your Bedding
You can bring more life into your bedroom design by addressing the centerpiece of your room, which is usually the bed. If it’s been a while, it may be time to change the bedding. This simple act can transform the vibe of your bedroom and create a fresh new atmosphere. Incorporate comfortable layers, cheerful colors, and different textures with a blanket, duvet, or summer quilt. This is a great way to switch up your child’s room or the spare bedroom as well!
Add a Statement Wall
A statement wall is an incredible way to make a major change without spending much time or effort, and they have a special knack for making your design look richer and more dynamic.
Consider a playful pattern, or simply paint one wall your favorite color. If you’re worried about making a serious commitment that you might regret, you can take advantage of many beautiful removable wallpaper options.
Lay Down a New Rug
Rugs add warmth and definition to the spaces they’re in. So, if you’re looking to redefine your space, there’s no better way to do it than with a new area rug!
Of course, the colors and patterns of the rug you choose are important, but the placement of your rug makes an impact as well. Laying your rug diagonally can bring additional movement and visual interest to the look.
Replace Your Hardware
It’s incredible what a difference faucet, appliance, and even door handle hardware can make on your overall aesthetic, and your options are plenty and affordable. You can add trendy brass pulls and a matching faucet, patterned ceramic knobs, or mix and match your metals to add layers of visual intrigue. The possibilities are endless!
Switch Out Light Fixtures
Like other aspects of your home that you use regularly, your light fixtures can easily become worn and dated. Changing your outdated light fixture or switching to one that better suits your style will completely alter the tone of any room. If you choose wisely, you might even be able to decrease your energy consumption. Technological advances are helping homeowners reduce the cost of their utility bills by simply switching to LED lighting!
Swap Out Your Window Treatments
Upgrading your window treatments is a rewarding home improvement project that is often overlooked. You’ll want to make sure that you choose something that fits your needs, whether for energy efficiency, eco-friendliness, or better light control. Switch up your drapes for a new pattern that ties into your color scheme. If you have blinds, consider adding fabric curtains in some of your rooms for added impact. By choosing the right window treatments for your home, you can reap the benefits for years down the line.
Rearrange Your Furniture
One of the easiest ways to make a change on a budget is by switching your furniture around. This could be as simple as rearranging your couch and chairs or grouping furniture in a way that encourages conversation. Consider moving some furniture from a bedroom and using it to mix up things in your main living areas. An armchair or a side table from a different room can change up the feel of the space and add a new element.
