Re-paint and decorate your front door
This first tips is going to be for home owners only since renters might not have the ability to re-paint doors or walls. A beautiful door-way gives a clear impression about a home. If your front door looks old and ill-favoured, it’s time to give it a change with a new refreshing color (white or wooden color is highly recommended).
You can also decorate your entrance with some green wreaths and mini outdoor trees or some hanging plants. A refreshing greener look will absolutely blow new air to your home.
Replace all the light bulbs and add more light if possible
Never underestimate the power of lighting, new lighting design will bring out a huge difference to your living habitat. Replacing your old light bulbs with new dimmable led ones not only help reduce your bills but also provide a whiter and cooler space.
Adding more light with some led string lights may warm up your home in such a romantic way. Using smart color changing bulbs would also be a great tips to renew your home.
Use wall decals and canvas paintings
This third tip is also renter friendly, which is changing the walls by wallpaper or decals. Let the new walls with tastefully modern designs speak your own style! Choosing the right wall decals and paintings will add aesthetic pleasure to your living atmosphere. There are tons of wallpaper or decals that are removable and I highly recommend those.
Since wall decals are fairly cheap and easy to use or remove, they’re commonly used in homes and offices for highlighting purposes. More importantly, your house (or apartment) will encounter such a big change thanks to canvas paintings. Use them wisely to upgrade your interior design! A wall decor can make a difference as well.
