Are you ready to bring in the holiday season in style? Stay busy on the weekends or after work by completing some simple home improvement projects to get your home ready for upcoming family gatherings and the new year. Check out these easy ways to give your space a much-needed update without breaking the bank.
1. Paint It Fresh
If you’re working with a small home makeover budget, one of the first things you should consider is applying a new coat of paint to freshen up your walls. Although the living room is where many people congregate, we suggest painting your dining room first. This room is often neglected by homeowners, and a new color can do wonders to update the look and feel of your home. Paint is an economical way to transform your space.
2. Illuminate Your Space
Light fixtures are such an easy and beautiful way to change the focus of a room. If your dining room or living room is missing a certain design element or awe factor, then select a dynamic and eye-catching light fixture to make a statement.
If you aren’t interested in splurging for a new fixture, try shopping for unique lightbulbs that can add an interesting flair to your home.
3. New Fabrics & Accents
With the holiday season upon us and the new year approaching, it’s time to put away the linen pillows and replace them with velvet, suede, or faux fur styles. Try to switch out pastel colors with rich, warm tones instead. Layer a cozy throw on your overstuffed chairs and sofa or look into getting a new area rug with texture and earthy colors.
