This is the time of year when people are full of new year’s resolutions and goals about how to improve in 2016. But new year’s resolutions aren’t just for people. Your home could use a little TLC too. Consider these simple ideas for giving your home a fresh new look for 2016.
Front Door Facelift
The front of your home is the first impression visitors will get and the first thing you’ll see every time you come home. That’s why it is so important to periodically give the front of your house an update to make sure the first impression is a great one. Doing so doesn’t need to be difficult or costly. Start by giving the front door a fresh new look with a change in paint color. Choosing a fun, bright color will create a bold look without much cost, and you can easily do it yourself. Another idea is to revamp other front elements like light fixtures, landscaping, and the house number. Add new potted plants to the front porch or update lights and other fixtures to give your home a new look for the new year.
Updated Indoor Lighting
Lighting makes a huge difference for the mood and style of a space. Old, ugly light fixtures can make your home look dated, while harsh or poor lighting can negatively impact the mood of your home. Uplift your home’s interior with new light fixtures that look modern and timeless.
New Window Treatments
Windows and window treatments make a big statement for the style of your home. Tired of your old curtains or blinds? Today there is a wide variety of great options for new window treatments on the market. Do your home a favor this year and update your windows with new shades, blinds, or shutters that will freshen up your home give each room the style you want.
