Last month I shared how to update your home by making small yet impactful changes to your decor. This month I thought I’d share 6 more design tips, to refresh your home, that I share with my Fairfield and Westchester clients.
Keep in mind that all of these ideas make valuable staging tips too! I say valuable because staging your home makes it look more current and helps to sell it for a higher price.
A light fixture, when chosen correctly, makes a big and delightful impact on your room. Think of lighting, not just as functional, but as a piece of art. Making a statement with your lighting is a great way to instantly upgrade any room in your home!
Keep up your Kitchen
Styling your Kitchen gives it a whole new vibe. You can accomplish this by adding new accessories, replacing hardware and pendant lights, or investing in a new backsplash or countertop. Choose materials that will make your Kitchen look current. This is where we spend a lot of time, so improvements here will help maximize your joy.
Replace your Rug
Changing your area rug can make a significant impact. Bold patterns are increasing in popularity. If you go this route, make sure the pattern and style blend with your decor and existing color palette.
Style your Shelves
Your shelves can look beautiful and add to the enjoyment of your space, but they can easily get cluttered and be stressful to look at. Switch things up on a periodic basis by rotating items in and out. This way, your shelves will continually look new and fresh. Start by taking everything out and think about adding some new colors and textures to keep it interesting.
You deserve a peaceful place to retreat to at the end of your day. Getting rid of clutter and organizing your closet helps you feel relaxed. Just changing your bedding will rejuvenate your room.
Upgrading or adding window treatments is an easy way to breathe new life into a room. If you want to pull the decor together, opt for patterns and color. If you are looking to simplify a space, neutrals are your best bet.
I hope you find these design tips useful to help you breathe new life into your home. If you want confidence in knowing you are making the best possible design decision, starting an E-Design project with me would be valuable to you.
