Spiff up every space in your home.There are many things you can do to spiff up the old place without spending a fortune. How can we update our homes while bypassing renovations? We want updates that all of us can do, not just those handy do-it-yourselfers. Let’s look at 9 imaginative ways to update home without tearing down walls or breaking the bank.
#1. Create open space in your home
Create space in your home, making it more appealing to you and to your visitors. Making your home seem open and airy can be easier than you think. Sometimes it’s as simple as getting rid of bigger, bulkier furnishings, or moving furnishings around the room to see what placement gives the most open space. If you are attached to the huge armoire, cabinet or other bulky furnishing that is taking up a lot of space. Then consider painting it a warm off-white color— this will help it “disappear” into the room, tricking the eye to think the space is more airy and open. Another trick of the eye that gives the illusion of open space, is mirrors. Mirrors when placed opposite windows reflect light into the room and make the room seem more open.
