Ways to Instantly Update Your Home

I had planned to start this off with some witty comment about the beautiful weather and the early spring we have all been so grateful for, but then winter decided to show back up at the party...sorry, I jinxed it. Regardless, as the weather begins to change, people are starting to think about making changes to their life and homes. Now, we can't give away brilliant life advice for free ;) but we can share four easy ways to revamp your home.

1. New Hardware

Change out some or all of the hardware in your home keeping in mind that hardware can be expensive but even this small detail can make a huge impact. The word 'hardware' includes everything from drawer knobs and pulls, faucets to toilet paper holders. Try to find unique pieces, not everything has to match - if you can manage to dig up antique, go for it!

2. Counter Top Change

If you're not prepared for a full kitchen or bath remodel, swap out those laminate counter tops for a marble or quartz. For more information on the pros and cons of either material check out our previous blog post Countertops: Marble or Quartz?

3. New Pillows

New pillows are the most 'no brainer' update you can make as the seasons change. They are an inexpensive way to update color in your home. Work with a designer to get custom pillow covers or head on over to your favorite design shop to find this seasons favorites!

4. Paint or Wallpaper!

This is an obvious one, but it's also the most inexpensive while having the biggest impact. I guess you could say you get the most bang for your buck. Paint is an easy do it your self solution while wallpaper will take some extra skill and is best if done by a professional. Paint one wall or wallpaper an entire room, you won't be let down by the impact.

...Now hopefully soon the warm weather will re-appear and everyone can start jammin' on making changes to their home...and lives. :)
