Hang a Gallery of Photos

Show off your family, postcards, or something that you love in life! Hang a gallery of photos somewhere in your home. You can choose behind your couch, in a hallway, or right in the entryway. We suggest that you pick a theme like weddings, birthday parties, or vacations. Then, hang everything up and admire your work.

Update Fixtures Around the House

Updating your fixtures has a considerable effect on your home. After a while, handles can look surprisingly dated. The fact of the matter is that your cabinets and drawers probably haven’t gone out of style, but it’s your fixtures making everything look dated. They’re easy to replace, and you can do it in minutes. Just remove the handles from your cabinets and drawer handles and replace them with something better.

Replace Lampshades

Replace Lampshades

Lampshades can quickly look old and dingy, especially ones that have been in the home for a while. The fabric can yellow and look unappealing. Replace them! You could go with white, but you can add a bit of flair if you throw on colorful lampshades. Pick a color scheme and run with it.

Upgrade Your Lighting

Upgrade Your Lighting

Most homes tend to have the same light coverings, and they don’t look good anymore. Remove the old glass bowl with the gold knob and go for something newer. You can often do this without having to rewire anything.

Build a Headboard

Build a Headboard

Your bedroom can be transformed by building a headboard. Since it isn’t a full frame, it won’t take up any floor space, and you can customize it the way you want. You could go complicated with a wooden chevron inset or a padded headboard. There are several tutorials on how to build a headboard online, and they often include specific designs.

Create Custom Art

We’re not saying you have to paint a masterpiece, but you do get bonus points if you can hang an original painting on the wall. Everyone can create art, especially pop art. Turn one of your favorite photos into a black and white piece. Print it on a piece of colored paper, like yellow. Then, cut out the shape and frame it in front of another colored paper, like pink. Voila! Pop art.

Update Worn Furniture

Update Worn Furniture

Worn furniture can date a room and make it look pretty bad. We’re not telling you to buy new furniture because that would be pretty expensive. Instead, repair broken parts if you can. You can also repaint dressers, tables, and other items. Don’t forget to replace the hardware!

An old worn door can be made new again by applying a fresh coat of paint. Most realtors will tell you that repainting your front door will create a more welcoming environment and give your home curb appeal. The fact of the matter is that it’ll do the same for doors inside your home.

Mount Draperies High

Mount Draperies High

Mounting your draperies and curtains high on the wall creates a lengthening effect. Most interior designers suggest that you install your curtain rods fairly high above the actual window. You’ll also need to extend past the window – around 7-10 inches past the edge.

Choose an Accent Wall

Choose an Accent Wall

Don’t have time to paint a whole room? Who does? Instead, choose an accent wall. This is one wall that’s painted a vibrant color. You can then scatter decorations around the room that are the same shade. For example, a red accent wall with a red vase, paintings, and other times will tie the room together.

Make Your Own Pillows

Make Your Own Pillows

Decorative pillows are pretty expensive, especially if you need several of them. It’s much cheaper to make your own! All you need is fabric and stuffing. This also gives you the choice to fill them as much as you want and make them as large as you want.

Skip the Big Retailers

Skip the Big Retailers

If you do need or want to buy new furniture, we suggest skipping the big retailers. They usually cost a lot of money, which can kill any budget. Instead, browse flea markets and yard sales. Even if something looks a little worn, you can update it with a little elbow grease.
