Simple things can mean a lot. You can change the entire look and feel of a room by just changing the window treatments. New drapes or blinds add warmth and appeal and instantly give your Brookfield home a fresh new look. Although brand new drapes or blinds may be expensive, a thorough washing of them can help a great deal as well.
Color Swatches and plans for painting. Painting is one of cheapest ways to add a fresh look to any room, door or home.
If that’s not enough, a fresh coat of paint transforms any room. Paint is one of the least expensive home decorating tools, and you can save even more money by doing it yourself instead of hiring a painter. It doesn’t require a lot of skill and is hard to do wrong.
If your furniture looks tired, adding new throw pillows in vibrant colors that either match or contrast your room’s colors can make a world of difference, and help your old furniture regain its appeal.
The bathroom is the second most commonly remodeled room in the house (after the kitchen), but it can cost a lot of money to replace cabinets, fixtures, or tile. Simple things can help give your bathroom a face-lift: add candles for a lovely glow and inviting fragrance. Get new towels to hang and repaint walls. Re-grout any tiled areas for a fresh new feel.
Coming home from a long day of work to a worn-out looking home can be a downer. Add some fresh hanging baskets of flowers or vines by the door and trim your path with a flower bed or decorative stone. You know what they say about a little “sweat equity”? Put in a little time and repaint the trim on windows and doors to give your home a quick lift.
If it’s nice out, make sure your patio furniture is freshly washed and clean. Arrange the deck or patio by removing excess furniture to make the area larger. And add some fresh flowers or planters to make it look more like an outdoor living area. Check the local patio store and you may find a great piece that helps accent your deck.
