Frame your windows
Hanging drapes is so easy that the most challenging part of the process will probably be choosing between the thousands of options out there. Take a good look at your room before heading out to the store so you have some sense of the color or pattern you’re looking for. And don’t forget to pre-measure. Nothing kills your redecorating buzz like having to return the drapes you just bought because they’re too short.
Modernize your cabinets
Painting your cabinets is a big task, and, as anyone who has tried will tell you, a complete pain in the sometimes. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it if you’re tired of the look. If you just want to bring in a little shine and make older cabinets look fresh, start with new hardware. Stickers and patterned plastic stick on are always a great way to give your space a fresh look.
Dress up your walls
Patterned walls continue to be popular, but you don’t need permanent wallpaper to take advantage of this trend. There is an ever-increasing array of peel-and-stick options that go up easy (and come down just as simply). We also love painting tools like Roller-wall that simulate the look of wallpaper. Give your TV section of your living room a new look. Think of bright colors too as they always give that homely effect to your space.
Update your bathroom
One thing that is paramount to know is that your bathroom can be a very good hideaway sometimes from all the bustle of life. So it is important to make it as inviting and welcoming as possible. Get new faucets, paint your cabinets, install new hardware, swap our your lights – they’re all relatively easy tasks and inexpensive fixes that can have a huge effect on the way your bathroom looks. If you’re not ready to rip out and replace your vanities or think about a new bath or shower at this point, get in there and do a few easy DIY tasks to give your space a mini overhaul that has maximum impact.
Have a great week ahead.
