Freshen up Your Home Without a Renovation

Spring has sprung. It is a time of year that brings to mind new beginnings. You may feel this most strongly in regards to your living space. There are plenty of ways to update your home without taking on a full renovation to satisfy your springtime cravings.

Lighting

Home lighting often goes unappreciated or unnoticed, yet it is one of the most strongly felt aesthetic factors in your abode. The correct lighting has the ability to transform a room. Modern day lighting technology gives us many more options for the kind of light we want to have. Certain fixtures can also double as decoration or a statement piece. It may very well change your life to embrace new home lighting ideas!

Color

Color is a simple and straightforward way to create visible change in a room. It can have quite a bold effect. No need to clear out the furniture and paint every surface; updating your trim, painting one wall or even using a small amount of wallpaper with a fun pattern can give you the desired result. Maybe even consider making your front door a whimsical color. If you have the budget, you could also go shopping for new and interesting curtains, pillows or bedding.

Layout

If you aren’t looking to spend any money, there are still options for you. You will need to be willing to pay with a little sweat instead, but consider rearranging your furniture. Rethink your layout to maximize your space and improve the flow. If you’re feeling really dedicated, you could even look into the concepts of feng-shui or minimalism for a style overhaul. It may not feel like the same house when you are done.

Just like your family changes over time, your home should, too. Small updates and additions of flair can be an enjoyable way to re-imagine your environment. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Go live your best life!
