So many of us have stayed home for the past few months and if you are anything like me, you are probably wanting a home update! Here are a few ideas to spruce up your home and most of them are budget-friendly, too!
Add In A New Faucet
I don’t know if you all remember or not, but we replaced our faucet in the kitchen with one that has a filter under the sink! It has made my life so much easier and now, I am a believer that everyone needs a new, updated filter. It makes a huge difference!
The head of our new faucet makes it super to use and it is out of the way when you are doing dishes. Such a huge improvement! They also make instant hot water dispensers which is also a great idea to add to a kitchen. It would be perfect for making tea!
Install Decorative Shelving
You’ll solve storage and decorating issues at the same time. If you collect shells, matchbooks, or family photos, don’t hide them away! Give each their own space to shine, and give your room a new vibe in the process.
Get That Fire Started
Warm up your family room with a fireplace. Don’t live in a cold weather climate – such as, ahem – Florida? No problem. A faux fireplace will work just as well, adding ambiance or romance to unexpected places.
You can buy a complete “fireplace unit” from specialized retailers and build your own mantle with an eye-catching array of candlesticks.
Either way, now is the perfect time to start your fall fires. It will add such a warming effect and make your home feel so warm and cozy.
Switching out the pulls on kitchen and bathroom cabinetry can give your space an entirely new look. It can upgrade cheap wooden IKEA furniture or modernize old pieces.
You can also mount coat hooks on the wall in the entry or in your bedroom to display hats or scarves.
Upgrade Your Headboard
Not many people think about upgrading a headboard when renovating or sprucing up a home, but it’s a great way to update the room that you spend a lot of time in!
To instantly update the headboard you already have, try arranging a blanket or tapestry over it. If you don’t currently have a headboard, try this popular trick from Pinterest: use a small sample jar of paint that you may have around the house to paint a headboard and create a fresh focal point for the room.
To get the look, try painting a rectangle, semi-circle, or a circle behind the head of your bed. Easy, peasy!
Rethink Your Windows
Nowadays, we’re spending a lot more time staring out the window than usual. So why not make it a comfy seating area by your windows? If you don’t currently have a window seat, consider pulling an upholstered bench under the window, or reposition a cozy side chair.
To let the light in, make sure your windows aren’t currently being blocked by furniture or decor. And consider making a curtain tie-back out of ribbon or a scrap of fabric you may have on hand.
Do you have bathroom and kitchen backsplash? If not, consider adding it! The bad thing about doing so is that most of the time, it can cost a pretty penny – especially if you have someone doing the work for you.
Instead of spending the money (and time) and adding tile backsplash, consider faux brickwork. It can instantly transform your space and the best part about it is the fact that the faux brick wall panels are SUPER easy to install, and they are affordable! They say, “We are able to provide exceptional authentic looking brickwork to suit any setting.
The high quality materials ensure you achieve the look and feel you require without the need for expensive and timely building work. Our versatile materials make it easy and affordable to create the perfect atmosphere both at work and at home.”
