Recently move into a new space or growing tired of the look of your home after several years? Money tight? Don’t fret. There are a lot of ways to spruce up your home even if you don’t have much to spend. To help give you some ideas, we’ve shared a list of tips from Julie O’Neil Dolan for WickedLocal.com below. Now, get to it!
Changing a room’s color or adding a “vibrant accent wall” can transform the look and feel of a space. Because it’s such an inexpensive project, Dolan says you can experiment with different colors until you find a look your love.
Swap out old fixtures
Many fixtures – fans, faucets, etc. – are readily available at home improvement stores and easy to install on your own. Even swapping out the towel rack can breathe new life into your home for little expense, she says.
Change your window treatments
Dolan says that you can entirely change the feel of a room and increase your sense of privacy by springing for new blinds or shades which control the natural light that pours into the space.
Make over your cabinets
Older cabinets can look dingy, says Dolan, but rather than replacing them if they’re in good shape, paint them a color you like or go with white to brighten a room. Dolan says you can take it a step further by installing new hardware, including knobs and handles.
Put up some beadboard
You can update the look of your backsplash, bathroom walls or mudroom by adding beadboard which is easy to install, inexpensive, and comes in a variety of patterns and colors.
