Keeping your home up-to-date on the latest trends and styles can be expensive and time-consuming. However, there’s no need to spend a ton of money. Take advantage of some easy home decorating ideas and make your house look brand-new. A few simple tricks here and there will freshen up a dated look in no time.
Install Floating Shelves
Dress up boring walls with floating shelves to display your collection of knick-knacks, books, or family heirlooms throughout the house. Rather than lining them up, try arranging the shelves in a unique way to draw attention to them.
Bring the Outdoors In
One of the easiest, and cheapest, things you can do to freshen up your home is to add plants, flowers, or budding branches. Placing flowers in vases throughout the house will make your home feel more vibrant and alive. Framing pressed flowers or leaves creates and organic look, and it’s a fun activity to do with your family.
Paint Select Areas
Painting an entire room of your house is a great way to make over your home, but it takes time and could get expensive. Instead, try painting the trim or the doors for a fast improvement. This is faster and cheaper, and it will add a new focal point in the room.
Hang Your Own Art
It doesn’t matter if you’re not artistic—even a photocopy of a black-and-white picture looks like fine art when framed and hung. Get some transparent document frames and put your favorite designs in them to transform your house into an art gallery.
Change the Shades
Get rid of those old beige lampshades and replace them with something colorful. Find new lampshades in vibrant colors that complement your room to give it a fresh new look.
Showcase a Collection
Bring some life to a dark, unused space. If you have a fireplace, use it to display a collection you may already have, such as vases or figurines. In the summer months when it’s not in use, clean it out and showcase your collection inside it.
Change the Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are meant for decoration, so freshen up a room with some new pillows. The easiest way to make a bedroom or living room look new is to add some new color or patterns with new throw pillows. That can add a whole new dimension to a dated space
