How long has it been since you last put any real effort into sprucing up your home? The years drift by, and as they do, all the furnishing, flooring, bathroom, kitchen, etc. begin wearing out so slowly, you barely notice.
Before you know it, your home looks like something that should be in a museum. Well, this needs to be addressed.
Having a home that no longer inspires you will have a negative effect on your mental health. It will drag you down and make you feel worn and tired out too.
There are many ways to inject a bit of life and vitality into your home, and there is no reason why you should delay any longer. Here are some ideas to get you thinking:
4 cheap upgrades for your home
Giving a new lick of paint to those tired walls is a great idea, and it covers up a multitude of sins. If you choose a nice light color, you will brighten up the home.
You could perhaps think about having different colors on different walls in the same room. Even a wall decal. Something pretty to create a new focus and add a little personality. Not only does painting make things look fresh, it has that new smell too.
Also, this is a relatively inexpensive way to upgrade any room, and you can do it yourself. And don’t just limit painting to walls, think about painting old furniture too. There is no reason not to.
2. New floors
Take a look at your carpet or flooring, are you still happy with it? If left in a home for a long time, a carpet can become a bit of a battering ram, soaking up smells, liquids, dirty footprints.
It may be an idea to get rid of the old and have something new to replace it. Speak to a flooring consultant at Carpet One to see what you can have done. A new carpet will feel like Heaven on your feet.
3. Fix things
If there are broken appliances and other fittings, get them fixed. Nothing is worse than going into that spare bedroom, and the light hasn’t worked since the ’80s.
4. Add your personality
Don’t allow a house to boss you. You need to boss it. Go out and purchase items that you like and start filling the new found space you have full of items that enliven your soul.
If you like a lot of mishmash patterns, go for it. It may be an idea to create a gallery wall where you can hang inspirational quotes that talk to you, and beautiful images that touch you.
