Use a scrub sponge or similar, to wipe down windows, cabinets and appliances.
1. Declutter & Deep Clean
Simply decluttering and deep cleaning your house can make a world of difference. Start by getting rid of things that you don’t need and organizing everything else. Once you’ve decluttered, move on to deep cleaning your house. Use a scrub sponge or similar, to wipe down windows, cabinets and appliances. Remember to clean under and behind furniture with a vacuum cleaner.
2. Rearrange Furniture
Rearranging furniture is one of the easiest ways to make your space feel completely different. And the best part? It doesn’t cost a thing! Arrange your furniture in a layout that ensures smooth traffic flow.
3. Reupholster Furniture
Years of use or food spills can ruin the visual appeal of your furniture. However, buying a new piece of furniture isn’t cheap.
Instead of splurging, you can easily reupholster your furniture to make it look brand new. Whether your couch has stains or your headboard is worn out, find a suitable fabric and revamp your furniture.
4. Create a Feature Wall
A feature wall is an excellent way to introduce some interesting patterns and colours in a room. You don’t have to be an artist to create a lovely feature wall. You can simply paint a wall a contrasting colour or use a sponge to add texture. If you’re renting, then consider going with peel and stick wallpaper. You can easily remove it when your lease is up.
5. Add Pops of Color
Neutral interiors look chic but can also feel uninspiring. Give your neutral decor a new life by adding pops of colours. Get vibrant cushions or artwork to brighten up your interiors.
Plants are another great way to bring in more colour. You can decorate your shelves and windows with all kinds of plants.
6. Shop From Your Decor
You don’t necessarily have to go out and buy new things to give your interiors a makeover. Shop from your own home! Take decor pieces from your bedroom and place them in the living room and vice-versa.
7. Display Your Crockery
All your beautiful plates, mugs, bowls and other crockery deserve to be displayed in your house. Instead of hiding them away in a cabinet, clear out an open shelf and put your best crockery on display.
8. Go Thrifting
If you are searching for new decor pieces but don’t want to drain your bank account, then try a thrift store. You can find a variety of home decor items as well as furniture at highly discounted prices. Even if you find a decent piece that looks old, you can spruce it up with a fresh coat of varnish.
9. Spruce Up Your Kitchen Counters
You can have a brand new kitchen countertop in an hour. Sounds too good to be true? It’s not! There is a wide range of decal countertop stickers available. You can stick them and voila, new countertops.
