Could your home use a slight facelift? Maybe you don’t have the expertise or the budget to undergo a huge renovation project, but your home’s appearance is feeling just a little outdated and stale. What can you do to give it a new, fresh look and liven it up a bit?

1. Replace Outdated Faucets, Knobs, and Latches

These are things that you look at and interact with every single day, so updating their form and function can make a much bigger difference than you’d expect!

2. Fix Up or add to Your Outdoor Spaces

Make the outside of your home something that puts a smile on your face every time you return home! Fix up that aging patio, plant some flowers, or build a few easy-to-make raised bed planters to add some unique functionality to your yard.

3. Change Or Add To Your Lighting

Sometimes the biggest improvement you can make to a living space is to brighten it up! Replace those old incandescent bulbs with cool, energy-efficient, and brighter LED bulbs that will give new life to your existing decor! Have other dim areas of your home such as beneath wall cabinets in your kitchen or elsewhere? Use LED lighting strips or puck lights to brighten up those dim spaces.

4. Add Or Change Up Your Curtains, Rugs, And Pictures

These are some more items that can be quite cheap, but make a huge difference in your decor!

5. Consider a Paint Job

Changing up the color of your furniture or walls can take some time and might cost a bit more than some other things on this list, but it can make a world of difference for your home. Find the right color paint or stain for the job and get to work!
