How to Improve Your Home in Just A Few Days
Your home is where your heart- and life- is. A home makeover can give it a new, more exciting look that appeals to you and your family. Other reasons why you should consider a home makeover include increasing its value, improving safety, increasing its functionality for your changing family, or giving it a modern look to keep up with the ever-changing décor and interior design trends.
If you don’t have the luxury of time or an endless supply of funds when remodeling your home, here are some simple ways you can update your home in just a few days.
1. Modernize your bathroom
Your bathroom is where you usually start and end your day. It’s a place to freshen up and unwind after a long day, and so it is important to make it a comfortable and functional space. Consider repainting the walls, adding a skylight to add natural light, upgrading the shower, and incorporating glass to brighten the room.
2. Repaint your walls
Repainting your exterior walls can help protect them from weather elements. Repainting is also a proven way of freshening damaged siding. For the interior walls, choose bright colors to make the house look livelier. Do not forget to give the ceiling a new look too. White is a great choice, as it reflects light and makes the room look brighter.
3. Invest in a good lighting
Good lighting in a room provides warmth and a cozy feel. Consider adding elegant chandeliers for your ceiling and replace your fluorescent bulbs with modern LED bulbs. You can also place candles in stylish candle holders in the dark corner in your living room, both for their scents and for their décor properties.
4. Manage your cords and cables
Electronics cables can make a room appear disorganized and untidy when they are all over the floor. Cable holders can hold all your cables together and are an inexpensive solution that packs a visual punch.
5. Bring in indoor house plants
Plants are naturally beautiful- their natural green color signifies life and inspiration in the house. They make a room cozy and purify the air within. Some indoor plants can add pleasing smells, for example, spearmint, lemon balm, night-blooming jasmine, etc. They will beautify and give the house a relaxing scent. If your room doesn’t receive bright sunlight, there is no need to worry. There are many options, such as setting up an indoor grow tent, that will substitute natural light and allow you to grow plants inside.
6. Work on your front door
Your front door is your home’s first impression for visitors. If the door is in decent condition, you might consider just repainting the frames and getting new door locks. If it is beyond repair, purchasing a new one can make a big impact.
7. Rethink your furniture
Change up the sofas and the tables from their usual positions. Rearrange your furniture to give every room a new look and a different one from what you are used to. Another way of reimagining your furniture is to get cushions of different sizes, shapes, and colors to match with the rest of the interior.
While still on the subject of furniture, a good comfortable bed is essential for a good sleep. Invest in a new mattress and consider upgrading your bed. An easy cost-effective way to update your bedroom is to buy beautiful and colorful bedding.. Make your bedroom as exciting as the living room!
8. Work on the roof
Roofs usually get the most wear during winter because of snow and heavy rainfall. In case of a leakage, have a professional make repairs and clean off any debris that could hold water and cause deterioration. While there, clean all the dirt in the gutters, and if need be, repaint your roof to give it a new look.
9. Improve your outdoor areas
Stay on top of pulling weeds and be sure to have sufficient watering to avoid grass drying up. Maintain a well-trimmed lawn and choose plants for your backyard that you can comfortably maintain. Native plants are a great choice for hearty, easy-to-care-for plant options.
The bottom line
There are plenty of ways in which you can improve your home. It will all depend on the amount of money you are willing to spend and the timelines you set for the work to be done. Move out of your comfort zone and take a step to improve your home! It is most certainly worth it.
