8 Ways to Brighten Up Your New Home

8 Ways to Brighten Up Your New Home

Looking to refresh your living space? Update and style your home? Sometimes new décor and style comes with a heavy price tag but not always. With planning, inspiration and a little effort, every home can get a fresh look. Below is a list of ideas on how to update your home’s style, without breaking the bank.

Fresh Paint

A fresh coat of paint can transform a space, for both interior rooms and the exterior of the house. Choose a colour that blends with your furniture and other décor or try white paint for a classic, clean look.

DIY Wallpaper

If you’re unsure about buying expensive print, consider doing the work yourself with paint and stencils. Artistic or simple, the choice of design and colour is always yours.


New Curtains or Blinds

New curtains, blinds or drapery add elegance and offer protection from the sun.


Replace Old-Fashioned Frames

Sometimes all you need is a new frame, for family photographs or your favourite artwork.


Add Shelving

Stylish shelving is not only a way to brighten your home but is also an excellent way to keep organized. This can include new shelving for closets and interior rooms.


Update Furniture

This can include a variety of options, including replacing old furniture with new pieces or simply updating what you have, such as repainting old bookcases, tables, chairs and cabinets. Repainting the front door, trim and windowsills are also great options. Other ideas include getting new chair covers or adding a few tasteful throw pillows to the couch.


Light It Up

Updating your lighting fixtures can really improve a home’s style. This can include replacing old lamp shades or thoroughly cleaning the fixture.


Make an Impression

Small changes can often make a huge improvement, such as replacing old doormats, house numbers, mailboxes, shower curtains or bathroom towels.
