Are you ready to give your home a new look or makeover? A few simple changes can give your home a new feel and make it more welcoming for your family and guests. Here are a few easy ways to add flair and comfort to your home.
1. Add Recessed Lighting
Installing recessed lighting is one of the easiest ways to make your home appear modern and luxurious. It also allows you to illuminate your house in a minimalistic way without the usual clutter and cords associated with lamps and light bulbs.
Recessed lighting can also be used to focus on a particular area of the room such as painting, a work of art, or the dining table. It can can also be utilized to give the impression of a larger space.
2. Remodel Your Kitchen
The kitchen is an area where families tend to congregate and spend lots of time in. It’s easy to transform the entire look of your kitchen by refacing your cabinets and reinstalling cabinet handles. A paint job can also transform your kitchen from drab to fab.
Upgrading the faucet and lighting fixtures can also give your kitchen a fresh appearance.
Another way to make your kitchen look brand new is to upgrade appliances and ensuring they match in color.
3. Pick The Right Rug
A beautiful rug can be the centerpice of your living room, adding warmth and style. The color and pattern of the rug should be cohesive with your living room’s color scheme, and furniture placement should be planned with the rug in mind.
Choose a simple single color rug if you have a busy living space with lots of patterns and colors. If you chose a busy or patterned rug you may want to pick it first and then pick your remaining accessories and furniture.
A rug’s texture is very important when it comes to accentuating your living space. Interior decorators recommend choosing a texture that will contrast with your existing furniture. For example, a fluffy rug wil look really great with a streamlined, sleek sofa.
4. Fix Uneven Furniture
Rickety and wobbly furniture can be distracting and uncomfortable for guests, despite the fact that it’s not immediately visible to the eye. Although it can’t be seen, it definitely can be felt. The most common reason for wobbly furniture is uneven furniture legs or an uneven floor.
Place the piece of furniture on a completely flat surface in order to determine if it’s the furniture’s legs or the floor that’s responsible for the unevenness. If it’s still wobbly on a flat surface you’ll know the legs are the culprit.
One of the most effective ways of fixing wobbly furniture is by installing adjustable feet, which can be used to raise a single leg in order to match the others. Another option is placing a shim under the uneven leg.
5. Paint The Walls
Painting the walls in a room can instantly give your living space (and mood) a boost. Softer colors can be used to create a calming space while bright colors energize. If you’re not sure what color to pick, start off by experimenting on an accent wall or small area first. Rugs and artwork can be used as inspiration when picking a color.
6. Install Crown Molding
One of the fastest ways to add value to your home is by installing crown molding. It can make your home feel more upscale and look well-constructed. Crown molding draws attention to the ceiling and draws the eye upward, giving the room a larger appearance. Crown molding looks best in traditional homes and can look out of place if you have an ultra-modern minimalistic home. If you’re using heavy molding or have curved walls it’s probably best to hire a professional.
