3 Ways To Refresh Your Home

3 Ways To Refresh Your Home

It’s not news that our homes (much like ourselves) sometimes need a little updating. We all feel it once in a while; the need for a refresh. What most don’t realize is this can be done without drastically changing your home. Our moods and how we feel are often determined by the space we are living in so why not spruce it up a bit?

One of the easiest ways to give your home a new look is with a fresh coat of paint. You’d be surprised how different a new color on the walls will make your space feel. It can transform the look from A to Z. When deciding on the color, don’t stray too far from colors you love – you’ll be living in the space every day. There are different variations of painting too. If you don’t want to paint all the walls in the room, choose one and make it a focal point. Or try out a different design like horizontal lines.

Pillow covers are one of the most underestimated décor accessories. If your room is looking a bit drab and needs just a little something, pillow covers are your ticket.  If you really love the covers you have, switch them out temporarily and bring them back after a while. Covers are an easy way to experiment too. You can bring a bold color or abstract design into the room without it being too overpowering.

A good gallery wall can spruce up any space and make it feel improved. It’s usually the focus of the room and if you frame engaging photos, paintings and mementos it can be an easy conversation starter. No matter how big or small the wall is there is a way to make it interesting. It’s also relatively simple to do if you want a small project to take on; it’s just a matter of hanging things on a wall.
