Brighten Up Your Home For The Winter
Don’t want to delay on improving your home just because the weather outside is frightful? There are a few indoor projects to consider that will brighten your home while improving its value. Whether your trying to flip your house or are just an avid DIYer that can’t sit still, here are some awesome things to do while stuck inside from the cold.
Everyone knows that painting is one of the best and inexpensive ways to improve the look of your home. What’s not widely known is that not every window in your home has to be wide open while you do it as long as you use an environmentally friendly virtually fume free paint! Update your home’s look, or cover up unsightly blemishes from wear and tear with a water-borne paint. Go as crazy as your experience will allow you to create dramatic stripes using painters tape, or install modern trim work to give rooms a new appeal. Remember, if you’re inexperienced in painting, start small, maybe with a bathroom and take your time with the prep work. Always use the right tools.
Shop for new hardware. For me, its one of the funnest things to pick out at the home center. From updating the doors in your home, or updating bathroom faucets or kitchen cabinets, this little improvement can go a long way! Using a modern classic like brushed silver or bronze, or a funky retro shape, changing these little details adds a world of interest to your dwelling space.
Brighten up your space using lots of light! Changing light fixtures can add allure to any room, or set the mood for any occasion. The way you light your home can make it an inviting warm environment where friends and loved ones want to gather, or it can make your space seem sterile, like a industrial hallway. Picking the right lighting for your home can make a huge difference. A simple chandelier over the dining room table can add a classic look, or installing a ceiling fan in the master bedroom can be attractive and practical. What is your favorite lighting?
So don’t get the winter blues (unless its for your walls!) this year, use this time to stay in, and make your indoors a welcoming place to snuggle in with a book or a movie.
