How to upgrade your home without renovating

The new year seems as if the perfect signal to perform a makeover to the wonderful abode that you call home. This new year, make time to finally turn your home into a cozy and relaxing Scandinavian home or put a painting you’ve long yearned for to decorate your wall.

Performing a major renovation that could put your money down the drain isn’t the only way for a home transformation. In fact, a renovation doesn’t need to cost a lot. You only have to be a tidbit more creative and resourceful to update your space.

To give you a clear picture, here are a number of ways you can update your favorite space without putting a large chunk of your finances on the line.


Restyle your space

More often than not, all your space needs is a quick and easy redecoration that doesn’t need renovations. Reposition your furniture: console table, sofa, cabinets; and restyle your home’s theme: Scandinavian, minimalist, bohemian, etc.

If you’re unsure how to restyle your space, consult with an interior designer who will very well know how to make your home the best it can be according to its size, layout, structure, and other factors.

Purge the clutter and organize

Do a deep cleaning and major decluttering to your home. Make it easier by detaching yourself from items you honestly aren’t going to use anymore (this best applies whenever you’re purging your closet). Get rid of any unnecessary knick-knacks on top of your console tables.

Purging can help your space appear more livable. Make cleaning and organizing a regular habit and make sure that you set a day aside for that purpose.

Update your bathroom

The bathroom is arguably where most homeowners feel the less need to upgrade. Very few people see it and it’s not as out in the open as your living room, so why bother? Well, because bathrooms accumulate dirt quickly and it doesn’t look very appealing without cleaning in the long run.

Clean your bathroom regularly and spruce up your outdated knobs, faucets, and shower curtain. Repaint when and where possible and at least, tidy up your vanity using organizers.

Paint your walls

More often than not, as simple as layering a fresh and new coat of paint is enough to transform a space. Be mindful of the colors you choose, though, as it reflects the mood and richness of the room.

Bring in a plant

You’ll never know how much difference and how revitalizing placing a plant in your space would look and feel until you do. Pick out fresh flowers from your garden or buy a houseplant. It isn’t that costly and in the long run, you’ll be happy with the decision as houseplants filter the air in your home and serve a relaxing ambiance.
