It doesn’t take a lot of work or money to make your home look better. There are many things you can do to spruce things up a little and make your home appear homier, cleaner and more inviting. Here are five ideas:
1. Carpet Cleaning: Most people vacuum but very few take the time to have a good carpet cleaning. You can have professional Carpet Cleaning in Stillwater for very reasonable rates and you will be amazed at what a difference it can make. You can not only make your home look better, but smell better as well and remove any allergens, dust mites and dirt that have been building up for years.
2. Fresh Paint: A fresh lick of paint will spruce up any room in the house. You can do it yourself for a very reasonable price and the more people you have to help the easier. You can lighten with lighter or bright colors and make larger rooms seem cosier with darker warmer colors. Painting base boards and trim can also really freshen up a home, especially with a nice bright clean white.
3. Area Rugs: If you have hardwood floors adding some area rugs can really bring a room together. It can also give a room a whole new look and add some nice warmth under foot. Area rugs are also great over older carpet to add a sense of style as well as to create separation in larger rooms.
4. Mirrors: Adding mirrors to any space will help you pick up the light both natural and artificial. You can position mirrors towards your windows to not only bring in more light to a room but to show off your view. It will work like a piece of artwork when positioned towards the right direction. Large mirrors can really make a space look bigger and you can even install panels on sliding doors or walls as well as a back splash in kitchens to add a sense of space.
5. Rearrange the Furniture: Look at your room from a new perspective and see if there is a way to make it look more spacious. Consider removing unnecessary pieces of furniture or switch things up a little using furniture from other rooms to add interest.
These are five simple ways to make improvements. You can try just one or do all of them for more impact.
