If you’re like a lot of homeowners, there are things you’ve been thinking about doing to update the appearance of your home for years, but you just haven’t gotten around to them for one reason or another. Maybe you feel intimidated by the idea of completely clearing out a room to remodel it or perhaps you’ve been afraid you won’t actually like the changes you’ve been longing for. No matter what your reasons are, make 2019 the year you set fear aside and make at least a few of the following upgrades to your home! There’s no doubt you’ll be glad you did.
- Change some paint colors – A fresh paint color is one of the most budget-friendly and dramatic ways to alter the entire look of a space. If you’ve had the same colors in your house for years and some of them are beginning to feel dated, pick a new hue you love and put it on the walls! In 2019, major trends include deep jewel tones, metallics, and dusty rose shades. These are sure to be popular for several years, so don’t hesitate to give one of them a try.
- Update your lighting design – If you are sick of some of your spaces, a lack of appropriate lighting might be a big reason why. Incorrect lighting design can make rooms feel dark, cramped, and generally uncomfortable. Go into the place of your house you like least and consider the lighting scheme carefully. You might very well discover that all you need to love the space are some new table lamps for task lighting and a gorgeous new overhead fixture complete with bulbs that mimic natural light.
- Change some accessories – If your home has looked exactly the same for a long time, you might just need some bright, fun new accent pieces to remember why you fell in love with the space in the first place. Nowadays, it is easy to find great throw pillows, vases, and other home accessories without spending a fortune. Switching up your accessorization with each season is an excellent way to keep the look of your home fresh while still sticking to your household budget.
- Install a brand new backsplash – If you’ve lived in your home for even a few years, the odds are good that your kitchen backsplash already looks outdated. Backsplashes have come a long way in recent years, with homeowners using everything from hand-painted Moroccan tile to cork in place of traditional options. Putting in a new backsplash that screams “YOU” is a great way to upgrade the style of your home while adding a personal touch.
