But spicing up your home can help make it feel new again and give you that new home feels like you had in the beginning. Changing or improving your home doesn’t have to be expensive either. There are many simple ways to help your home get that new feel while staying within a budget.
Any room, kitchen, living room, and bathroom could need an extra push to give it the look you are really hoping for. In the end, it is your home and should be a perfect representation of yourself and your style.
Never Enough Storage
We don’t realize how much stuff we have until we are trying to find places for it all. Shelving and storage may be hard to scrounge up in our home. Thankfully, this is where you can become creative. There are many areas in your home where unique pieces of shelving can be placed to help put your books and knick-knacks in proper places.
If you have a nook or blank wall it could be time to add a few pieces of plywood to the area. With the simple addition of some screws and painted pieces of plywood, you can create a shelving unit of your own design. If you want to spruce it up, even more, you could add wallpaper or a statement paint color behind the shelving to really make it stand out from the rest of the room.
Don’t Forget About the Basement
A lot of times the basement is placed for storage for the home. While that is useful, it could be wasting a whole room of the house. A basement can be made into an at-home bar, living area, or even a game room for the family.
A simple coat of paint and some pieces of furniture could make that cold room into a warm livable area. On top of that, utilizing your basement can also raise the property value later on and make it more enticing for buyers in the future. When it comes to homeownership, it can be your playground. Create a home that you are proud to live in and happy to go home to every day.
No More Bland Walls
A huge and creative trend that has taken the decorating world by storm is statement walls. If you think the walls in your living room or kitchen are missing something, there is a simple and easy way to change that. Choose a wall that stands out to you when you walk into the room and make it a statement wall.
Making a statement wall could mean painting it a different color, adding wall decor, shelving, or a new texture altogether. It is your chance to use your imagination and create something eye-catching.
Change Up the Floors
If you are getting sick of the carpet but don’t want to spend the money on switching it to real hardwood flooring, there is another way. Laminate flooring has become huge in-home improvement as it is easy, cheap, and a beautiful way to spice up any room. It can take the look of wood flooring and be just as easy to clean but without the cost or labor.
Your home is a representation of you and your style. Don’t be afraid to go all out and make it a place where you are excited to live. Make every room somewhere you enjoy and can see yourself living.
