You may not have the time or finances to give your home an expensive overhaul right now, but that should not stop you from breathing new life into your home. Follow our quick and easy tips for giving your home a quick and easy makeover without burning a huge hole in your pocket.
- Control that clutter
Clear up that clutter, wipe down that dust, make your bed and polish your mirrors and windows till they gleam for a quick and easy makeover.
- Move your art around
Move your art, furniture and other objects to a different room from where they are normally kept. For instance, that quirky red lamp in your study can be shifted to your living room to brighten up an otherwise dull corner and the painting gracing the wall in your guest bedroom can be a lovely addition to your lobby.
- Use fruit as a centerpiece
A wooden bowl with colorful fruits arranged in it can function as a quick and easy-to-put-together centerpiece for your dining table.
- Bring nature inside
Plants brighten up living spaces instantly. Bring some color and life inside your home by creating a cheerful nook for your most-beloved plants in a corner of your living room.
- Create a collage
Create a collage of your most memorable moments and put them up on a wall. The frames can be of different styles, colors or sizes; it doesn’t matter. You can even pin or stick the photos up on an old white board or framed canvas sheet to make a unique style statement.
- Everything doesn’t have to match
Homes that have matching pieces of furniture in every room belong in magazines. Create your own individual sense of style by mixing and matching different pieces of already existing furniture and art.
