Here are some simple and quick home makeover ideas
Coming into the summer months, kids are out of school, parents are taking time off work, and your home becomes the focal point of social gatherings. Summer is the perfect time to perform a quick home makeover and improve the overall look and feel of your home. With a few easy tips, your home can look like it has been completely rejuvenated.
Make Your Porch Front Entry Welcoming To Guests
There is nothing more depressing than a dark, gloomy front door when visiting someone. A cheery, bright colored door with a pretty potted plant can take your porch from dull to exciting instantly. The entry way should be just as inviting to keep the same tone and feel of the home. Dress it up with a little décor, but keep it simple to avoid clutter making it look messy.
Remove Old And Large Trees Near Your Home
Trees that start growing very near your home or that are scattered around your yard dead can distract from the overall appearance of your home. It can also be very dangerous, especially with summer storms, if a large tree has grown too close to your home, says the professionals at Arborcare Tree Service Ltd. Removing these eye sores can give the outside appearance of your home a facelift.
Paint Or Replace The Shutters
One of the first things an individual will notice past your yard is the shutters. Painting, or replacing, your home’s shutters offers a quick and easy way to change up the monotony of your home. Simply changing the color of the shutters can take the home in a whole new direction.
Change Out Drapery In The Home
Drapes can be used to drastically change the look and feel of the home. Drapes come in a wide array of varieties making it easy to change a room up from intense and elegant to casual, or vice versa. Consider using drapes that extend to the floor and are taller than the windows. This will give the appearance that your windows are bigger and make the room look larger.
Mix Up The Lighting
A great way to give a room a boost of energy is to change up the lighting. If there is recessed lighting in a room such as the dining area, it can be replaced with a chandelier to instantly add elegance. Natural lighting can also be manipulated to change the appearance of a room when coupled with drapery.
Add Crown Molding
In any main living area of the home, such as the kitchen, dining area or family room, crown molding can instantly add appeal. Rooms can be elegantly decorated, but without crown molding, the room might not seem finished. Adding molding is a quick and easy step to finish any room off and add to your home’s makeover.
There is no better time to perform a quick home makeover than the beginning of the summer right after spring cleaning has come to an end. These tips will help you get started to giving your home the facelift it deserves.
