Vibrant wall paint makes a big visual difference in just about any room. But so does a floral sofa in your living room or a graphic hearth rug in your kitchen. Updating your home can be a daunting task. However, it is not just the big and bold design decisions that can make a noticeable change in the look or feel of your home. A few simple changes here and there can give your home refreshing a new look. Here are some minor home décor changes that will make a significant impact.
Replace Your Backsplash
Kitchen backsplashes no longer just protect your walls from spills and platter. There is a wide array of eye-catching materials like metals, wood, glass, and stone that make your backsplash the focal point of your kitchen. Replacing your backsplash tiles is one of the quickest ways of updating the look of your kitchen.
Update Your Textiles and Linens
One of the most important spaces in your home is where you start your mornings and end your days – your bedroom. There are endless ways to make even the smallest bedroom livable and chic. For instance, updating your textiles and linens can have a tremendous impact on its overall look. Sometimes, changing your bed linens is all you need to create an inviting space for comfort. Investing in plush fluffy textiles, the best down comforter, and a throw rug in your favorite color can go a long way in sprucing up your bedroom.
Install New Lighting
Lighting is often overlooked, yet it’s one of the essential elements of any living space. It is the jewelry of a room. Proper lighting sets the tone and creates a homely atmosphere in any room. Just by varying the light sources in your home with vanity light, portable lighting, sconce, or even a new chandelier will have a significant impact on the mood and ambiance of your space. Before installing new lighting, think about what you use the room for. This way, you will be able to apply the right light and ensure that it functions well.
Replace Window Treatments
The window treatment you choose reflects your style and lifestyle. For the longest time, shutters and wood blinds have been classic window treatments. However, if you want to make an update that will make a significant impact, consider using the latest window treatments that are both multifunctional and motorized – Pirouettes, Silhouettes, Luminettes, Sonettes and Duettes are all available to you. Some of them even integrate with the new smart home technology. Choosing the right treatment for your windows will give your space a polished look as well as set the tone for your home. We recommend you choose steel that has been recycled, as you are doing your part for the planet
Update Your Hardware
One of the quickest and most economical ways to give your home a shiny update is purchasing new hardware. Your old tarnished cabinet knobs, handles, and drawer pulls can show a home’s age. A simple bathroom and kitchen hardware replacement will shave years of age off your home’s appearance and instantly update its style.
The best thing about these remodels is that they are easy to install, meaning that you can do them yourself over the weekend. What’s more, there is a wide variety of finishes available so it will not be hard to find just what you are looking for to freshen up the look of your bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or your front door. While classic hardware like brass and wood handles never lose their appeal, newer hand-made metal handles and porcelain shaped – fish, arrows, leaves – are intriguing and eclectic.
Nothing adds more visual interest, texture and depth than layering. Layering is all about taking individual design elements in a room and pulling them to create a unified look. Layering is the distinctive ingredient that adds sophistication to space, making it extraordinary. Layer your art, rugs, pillows, and blankets to add color and personality to a room affordably. Since these pieces are easy to change out, make sure to have fun with them and go bold as layering is what makes a home attractive.
Splash Just a Little Bit of Color
When redecorating your home, introducing a little bit of bright color, whether it is through a pillow, a coffee mug or a small print, will go a long way in adding an extra dose of cheer to your apartment. Color is the fastest and most affordable ways to transform a space entirely. It has a significant effect on how you feel in a space.
