BIG BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Everyone wants a cozy, well-designed home, but keeping your home looking fashionable doesn't have to mean messy or costly projects. Clarify your tastes to keep your home from looking tired and outdated. It is hard to keep up with today's design world's changing do's and don'ts. It seems that brass was out only a few years ago, and brushed nickel and oil-rubbed were in, but matte brass accents have come back into favor. The best advice is to choose the most appealing styles for you unless you plan to sell soon. Open and clutter-free spaces always help a home feel more modern and welcoming.
A completely free way to refresh your home is to de-clutter the spaces where you spend the most time.
INVEST IN YOUR COMFORT
Color can entirely change the feel of a space, but outdated colors can make your home feel dated. Many people opt for a timeless neutral color scheme for their walls and then add pops of color through soft furnishings. If you aren't afraid of color, an accent wall can add a beautiful focal point to a room. Surprisingly, wallpaper is no longer out of style. It can add a lot of texture and interest to an otherwise ordinary space. Be sure to keep your paint job fresh. Nothing says a neglected home faster than scuffed and worn paint in need of a touch-up.
Avoid creating themed rooms when picking the furnishings of your home. If you love peacocks, for example, consider a tasteful nod rather than going overboard. Inexpensive things like lamps and wall art can make a big difference in bringing a room into modern times. To you're your home from looking too busy, remember that frequently less is more.
THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE
Interior designers agree that you should think about updating your current style every three to four years. To keep from feeling like updating is outside your budget, set aside a small amount of your income to refresh your home each month. When it comes time to sell, you will be glad that you kept your home in fashion. Possible buyers will be able to imagine themselves living in your space.
