Design Tips for a Home Refresh
So, looking for a refresh without a major renovation? You’ve come to the right place. You don’t always need to embark on a major project to update your home, sometimes all you need is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Here are a few design tips to help you refresh your space for a new look and feel.
1. Rearrange Your Furniture
Experiment with different arrangements to see how it changes the feel of your space. Sometimes, taking a piece of furniture and moving it to a different room can make all the difference. A little bit of leg work can go a long way without spending a dime! And, the good news is that it can always be moved back if you don’t like it. Go ahead and try it out to create a more functional or visually interesting layout.
2. Add Color
A fresh coat of paint and a weekend project is all you need for a refresh! Even if you love the wall color you have now, try out a shade or two darker or lighter for a fresh feel. Really don’t want to paint? Try adding in colorful throw pillows, a new rug, or artwork instead.
3. Bring in Natural Elements
Introduce natural elements such as plants, flowers, and wooden accents to add some life to your space. Faux plants work here although we always prefer the real deal. There are apps like Planta to help you grow a green thumb if you’re worried about keeping plants alive. Check out this blog post about our favorite and easy to care for house plants!
We heard you Marie Kondo! A cluttered space equals a cluttered mind. Getting rid of anything unnecessary will help your space feel more open and inviting. Consider donating items you no longer use or need, and find new solutions to keep things organized. If it doesn’t have a home right now, it doesn’t belong.
5. Experiment with Art
Consider adding a focal piece of art to your space or experiment with a gallery wall of your favorite photographs. This will bring a new visual interest to your space making it feel new. Remember, the center of any piece of art should be about 55″-60″ from the ground.
We hope you enjoyed our home refresh design tips! The key here is to have fun and experiment until you achieve a space you feel your best in!
