A home is the reflection of who you are. It is your identity away from the workplace. It is your safe haven and is suppose to represent who you are internally. The key to a happy home is from time to time to take the extra effort to spruce it up a little and remodel or re-new some of the best parts of it. Here are 5 semi-quick and easy solutions to liven up your home once again!
1. Paint a Wall:
Want an old room to feel fresh and brand new again? Paint already peeling off at points? Sick of that old color? Time to paint it once again! Use a more in tune color with your house or refresh such a room with a more vibrant feel. Just make sure to prepare before hand so the clean up isn’t such a hassle. Lay down tape over the whole room so you don’t get paint anywhere you don’t want it. Lastly, if you don’t like the look of just one wall painted, continue painting the whole room and enjoy the new feel!
2. Replace Windows:
Windows are a big factor of your home and living in it comfortably. If you have old enough windows and your home becomes chilly and drafty way to easily it may be time to replace them! Not only will this improve your heat bill, it will also give you a chance to spruce up the look of your house in an important way. There are many, many different style designs of windows that local window companies can offer you to fit the design or stand out from your home and give it a whole new look. Now it’s just up to you to choose.
3. Don’t forget the Ceiling:
Your ceiling covers your whole home now doesn’t it? So per say you turned it into something worthwhile with a little eye candy. That would be tremendously beneficial to the look and feel of your entire home and we promise if your looking for that new feel, you won’t regret it.
4. Clear Away The Clutter! All of It:
Clutter causes most people to feel frustrated and unhappy to a degree. Most of us do not want a messy house. Take some time and build extra shelving, storage units or organize a closet or two to fit more than you thought they would. Once you get that extra clutter out of there your mood will improve and your home will feel fresh. We promise
5. Remodel your Bathroom:
Now this may be a larger task that you most likely should pay someone else to tackle *cough cough, GHI cough*
But even so if you plan on selling your house eventually or just want a visual overhaul remodeling your bathroom may be the best plan you can have. You can start with a thorough cleaning of the floor and walls to remove any mold, then start to think about the color you want for your bathroom. You can also change the shower curtain, add different towels or erect a few pictures. You probably won’t realize till halfway through how much such small changes can improve the look of your bathroom. If you have a little more to invest, considering putting in a new modern sink. Tempered glass bathroom sinks are a very nice way to add color to a room, at least in our my opinion.
Each of these 5 tips could be done on your own given an adequate amount of time and some knowledge. However it never hurts to have a professional do it for high quality results that make you happy!
