Whether it’s the living room or the bedroom if you’re interested in giving the space a new look you don’t have to have a big budget to do so. Consider launching small, speedy projects that will allow you to freshen up the look. Simply switching things around a bit and dabbling in a bit of DIY can satisfy that need for change without launching a full out makeover.
Put down an area rug in the kitchen
If you’ve been flirting with the idea of laying an area rug down in the kitchen, consider borrowing one from another room just to take the idea for a test run. If you don’t have one lying around somewhere or it doesn’t match the color scheme in the living room, you can always purchase a cheap one from your nearest outlet.
Create An Accent Wall
Make a statement in a bland powder room or even the hallway by adding a strip of wallpaper featuring a standout pattern or color. A bathroom or a narrow hallway is an ideal place to experiment.
Paint the Door
Add an unexpected pop of color to a door. Start off by rubbing the door down with sandpaper to create a smooth surface and apply a bold pop of color with a coat of paint. Paint and supplies don’t cost much and imagine the surprise such an unexpected color will be to your guests.
Create A Headboard with Paint
Does your bed lack a headboard? Why not create a panel behind your bed to mimic the look of a headboard? Get the perfect square panel by professional grade painter’s tape to outline the area. The tape will prevent the color from bleeding and it helps you paint a sharp edge.
It’s easy to get tired of the look of a room especially if you’ve lived in the space for a while. Switch things up by rearranging the furniture in the room. You can swap furniture from different rooms and add in pieces.
Display A Collection
Consider taking your knickknacks and creating a display of it. Install hooks on the wall to show off a collection. Photographs, framed paintings and other items can take a whole new life when you elevate them.
