If you haven’t updated your home in a long time, it might be time for a change. Change can be a good thing, but the thought of having to revamp your entire house might be extremely overwhelming.
Fortunately, there are some really simple things you can do to upgrade your home without breaking the bank or breaking your back. Let’s take a look at a few simple ideas for your home.
Wall stencils or stick on wall appliques are great ideas for home design, especially if you live in an apartment. All you need to do is peel the stencil or decal off of the paper and stick it right on your wall. They come in so many different shapes and designs and can help make a room look bigger or more cohesive. They’re also removable and replaceable, so if you decide that you want the stencil on a different wall, you can pick it right up and move it over. Consider wall stencils for your next home design project.
A really simple way to spice up your room and make it look completely different is just by simply changing the paint color on the walls. You can go to any home store and get a couple gallons of paint for a very inexpensive price. Going with a lighter color can make your room look a lot larger. If you’re trying to make a room look smaller or cozier, pick a darker color. There are so many different options for painting including just painting one wall, painting half of the wall, or painting designs on one specific wall. Plus, the paint isn’t permanent. If you end up hating the color that you chose, you can paint over it in the future.
Adding different pieces of furniture like sofas, living room sets, coffee tables, or dining room tables can really help liven up a room that needs a serious update. All furniture isn’t the same, so you can definitely find a piece that will fit your specific style. You can also update a room based on brand new furniture. Since furniture comes in different shapes, sizes, and styles, you can build a room off of a specific piece. It’s a really simple way to make a big change.
According to a survey by HomeGoods, 9% of Americans haven’t updated their home design in more than 10 years. And 47% say they haven’t in the last five years. If you’re among any of those people that haven’t upgraded their home in quite some time, consider some of the tips listed above.
