Is It Possible To Refresh Your Home Without Breaking The Bank?
Yes, it is possible to keep your home current, and it often has to do a lot with fixing underlying issues that are just ticking you off.
So if your home has underlying issues, you might feel irritated or unsafe when you are there; that is not how one is supposed to feel when you are in your own home.
Things you might be dealing with that create the need for you to update your home interior:
- pest issues
- smells that are not pleasant
- broken hardware (cabinetry)
- ugly colors
- outdated decor
- lack of light
No matter what the issues are, keeping your home current and updated and fixing the underlying issues will help you feel safer and more relaxed in your home.
#1 Dealing with Pests + Rodents
If you are dealing with pests, seeking expert assistance with your rodent control will help you remove them for good if it is in your own townhome or home, and if it is a rental, contact the rental owner ASAP.
In your home, you can try to remove and deter rodents and insects; it is often more short-term than long!
#2 Color Changes Everything
Hate The Colors In Your Rooms? Change it?
Fresh paint is a simple and inexpensive fix to brighten and lighten any room, including rooms that don’t have windows and that can not have windows.
Your home could feel transformed with a fresh coat of paint and new trim.
If you love the current color, but it is a mess with marks and wall hanging messes, repair and repaint the same color, making the room look clean and feel pulled together again!
#3 Add Greenery For A Splash of Life Too
While fresh paint can be a simple fix to help make the home feel new and exciting again, adding greenery to a room brings new life.
You could add artificial or real flowers, planters, herbs, hanging wall herb gardens, or photos with flowers to invite warmth into any living space.
Pro Tips About Greenery
- Remember, many indoor plants can poison cats, dogs, and kids, so choose carefully.
- Artificial flowers collect dust quickly; you must wipe the leaves to keep them inviting.
- Bigger plants take up space, while wall herb gardens can leave dirt splashes on the wall when watered.
- All plants need to be maintained by either being watered or dusted!
#4 Add new Comfort pieces To Your Living Spaces
Refresh your home without breaking the bank by adding simple new decorative pieces.
By changing out current items in a room for some new ones, you can add color and comfort to a room.
- add new cushions
- add a throw rug or a larger rug
- get new blankets or throws for your couch
- add a small ottoman that is also a hideaway for items
Small changes and accents make a massive difference in the feel and appearance of your home.
#5 Add Wall Art
When a room is dull, you can refresh your home without breaking the bank by adding wall art.
You can make the wall art yourself by using Canvases, blowing up photos and hanging them, or traveling to the dollar stores, grabbing frames, and loading a wall with art for an extreme update.
Bring personality into your room with wall art with sayings too!
#6 Smells and Scents Make A House A Home
Change the scent
Changing the scent is an easy and guaranteed way to fall in love with your home again.
You might feel you can often smell the former smells of frying oil or garlic in the kitchen, and in the bathroom, you might smell just a flat-out stink!
You might clear the funk if you are proactive with cleaning agents and scented elements.
No worries, though. There are other great ways to replace the dastardly stinky smells with fresh items:
- use a diffuser
- Try a new scented plugin
- Use those fresh gel containers
- Use essential oil mixtures and spritz the air
- clean with Mrs. Meyers
- Do you do laundry with Tide Unstoppables
- Try out scented candles
