Freshly Painted Walls

Perhaps the easiest and most cost-effective way to give your home a fresh new look is to simply give the walls a fresh coat of paint. Newly painted walls can give a home a new and updated look, which can go a long way. Make sure to patch any imperfections first and paint in a neutral tone in order to make your home more attractive.

Here are some color ideas:

  • Pure White
  • Interesting Aqua
  • Grizzle Gray
  • Believable Buff

New Fixtures

You’d be surprised at how much of a difference little things like door knobs and electrical outlets make to the overall look of a space. Swapping your old fixtures and hardware for newer, more modern ones can give your home just enough of a facelift. Making some small changes can make a dramatic difference in how your home looks.

Here are some fixture ideas:

  • Lighting
  • Curtain Rods
  • Door Handles
  • Switches

Landscaping

Before you tackle the interior, take a close look at your home’s landscaping. For starters, get rid of any clutter that may have accumulated over the years. Trim the bushes, install some addtional lighting, plant some flowers, and fix any loose stones or pavers along the walkways.

Here are some landscaping ideas:

  • Pathway Lighting
  • Concrete Pavers
  • Easy to Maintain Plants
  • Gravel & Stones

Updated Window Treatments

Any old drapes or plastic blinds that are covering your windows are just taking away from the esthetics of your home. If your window treatments could use an update, consider making some changes to improve the looks of your windows and potentially even let more natural light in, which is always a good thing.

Here are some window treatment ideas:

  • Roman and Roller Shades
  • Shutters and Blinds
