Opt for an Open Space Plan
You have an opportunity to create an open space in your home and make it more appealing to you and your visitors with an open space plan. You may be wondering how you can do this without having to break down walls.
Sometimes it’s as simple as moving big bulky furnishings in the hose, such as the Kitchen Island or fridge. Other times it could be painting the walls warm off-white color.
As a result, the less furniture and furnishings you have in your house, the higher your chances of achieving the open space plan. Therefore, it wouldn’t hurt to consider fridge disposal for the very bulky and unnecessary storage space big fridges offer.
There are several ways to break monotony and level up your room with lights. Buy table lamps and floor lamps for your apartment. Then proceed to place them strategically around the house. The second option is to install eccentric lighting fixtures sold online. But of course, you will need an electrician to install these fixtures if you do not have the skills to do it. However, with a few YouTube videos, installing a light fixture is not rocket science.
Update Door Knobs and Drawer Pulls
It is incredible how something as small as a doorknob can transform your house. If you get confused about improving your home, something as small as a drawer pull can give a different aesthetic to a very dull room. For instance, if you were to install stainless knobs in a country home with wooden carvings, it would make the home exciting.
Unless your windows have a view like a lake, mountain, or landscape, you shouldn’t leave them bare. Window decorations are endless, for instance, you could replace plain-looking curtains with bright and eccentric partners. You could opt for gauzy beach sheets or thin blinders. However, ensure that you match your window decor with the existing colors in the room when you upgrade your house.
You do not have to endure the smell or the tedious work of painting. Wallpapers provide a wide range of patterns and colors that are a great alternative to painting. Wallpapers will not only save you time but are also affordable in the long run. Moreover, they do not damage walls, especially if you live in a rental, and are easy to install and remove.
Remember, ultimately, the best way to upgrade your home is to wash it regularly and ensure the paint does not chip. There’s room for experimenting with different patterns and decors, especially when you live at a property you own.
