3 Simple and Affordable Ways You Can Transform Your Home
Your home should be somewhere you’re excited to come home to eat day, somewhere that you can relax and create special memories with loved ones. If we let our homes get away on themselves, neglecting to do simple repairs and letting problems to build up, home can be a place of stress. A few small investments and changes can go a long way in making your home into a place where you are excited to be and where you feel even more comfortable. Here are 3 simple and affordable ways you can transform your home without breaking the bank.
1. Rainbow Chalk Marker
If you have tiles around your home, such as in the kitchen, bathroom, or even in your yard, wear and tear can show up really quickly. Grout that’s wearing away can result in holes in between the tiles where dirt and grime collect. Not only does this look unattractive, it can also be a hygiene issue especially if you have young children around the home. For many people redoing the grout in their home can seem like a daunting task, but with a rainbow chalk marker you can quickly transform not only the look but the function of your home’s grout.
2. A Feature Wall
I’m not sure there’s a cheaper and more dramatic way to change the look and feel of a room than by incorporating a feature wall. It’s well known that certain colours can impact mood, so why not transform how your bedroom feels by painting the wall behind your headboard a colour that relaxes you, to ensure you have the best sleep possible. Maybe you want to do a feature wall but want to do it somewhere more central in the house so friends and family will see it when they’re visiting. Another great place for a feature wall is behind the TV in the main entertainment room. A black tv set against a bright white wall makes it stand out more, ensuring it is the dominating feature of the room. But by choosing a feature wall of paint behind the TV you can create some mood and interest in an exciting way. Feature walls can be a great way to transform a child’s bedroom without spending the time and money to paint the entire room!
3. Add in Some Plants
Nothing livens up a space like some bright green plants or flowering plants. They add a pop of colour which can ensure that a room has more character. Plants also provide air purification benefits, ensuring that the air quality is better in your home. I personally love having plants inside the home, especially when the weather is grey and miserable, as it brings a little of the outside inside. If you’re not sure what plants will work best in your home, head to your nearest nursery and ask them for some suggestions for plants that will work with your lifestyle and aesthetic.
