You’ve probably spent more time than ever before in your home this year. As a result, you’ve probably started to pick apart its every flaw; from cracked tiles to outdated wallpaper. Thankfully, there are plenty of things you can do to make your home better, creating a space that is welcoming, comfortable, and one that better matches your current design preferences. Make small changes to your home before the end of the year. There could be no greater Christmas gift than a new look for your home.
Create a wall mural
Bored with plain walls? Don’t like the look of wallpaper? Why not create your own wall mural? They look great in kid’s rooms and playrooms, but can also make a statement in your bedroom or den. This may feel like a huge undertaking, and it is a bold design choice; but there are lots of companies who design kits that simply stick on your wall. Choose one that is premade or piece together several to create a funky feature wall in any room.
This will be a game changer in terms of how interesting a room can be.
Fix that leaking roof
A design change is not the only thing you should focus on in terms of spending more and more time at home. If there are repairs that you’ve been ignoring; get to them. There is no more important repair to make than fixing a leaky roof. Don’t forget that the roof is a part of your home’s exterior design. If you need to replace your roof, there’s nothing that says you have to go back with the exact same roof shingle style or color. You have lots of choices when it comes to roof styles. Even a subtle change from a gray to black shingles can make a big difference in the look of your home’s exterior.
If you need to repair a leak, or would like an entirely new look roof, give Arizona Roofing Company a call. They’d be a great choice for those who live in their service area.
Try ‘Peel and Stick’ Wallpaper
Another quick design change is as easy as peel and stick- wallpaper that is! Try peel and stick wallpaper when you’re ready for a change that is more than just an accent wall. If you want to change an entire room, but don’t want the hassle of buckets of paste, having to squeegee gloppy water, and having to cover the floors, peel and stick could be just the thing.
One of the great benefits of this type of wallpaper is that it’s not going to damage your walls underneath. If you live in an apartment or rental home, you can try this without worrying about losing your deposit because of damage.
Do a deep clean
The least sexy home improvement you can make is to do a deep clean. It’s not a flashy change, but boy, it can make a difference. Start in your kitchen and empty out all of your cabinets. Get rid of all of the dishes you’ve accumulated through the years that you no longer use. Some of those disposable bowls are well past time to toss them! Donate nicer dishes to a local charity. Just because they are past your desire or need for them doesn’t mean another family might benefit from them.
Clean out your fridge. I always love how much room I can free up when I toss those salad dressings, sauces, and other condiments that are past their expiration dates. Wipe down all of the surfaces and your fridge will start to sparkle like new again.
Hit up your closet. Now there is a place that needs to be weeded at least once a year. If you haven’t worn it in a year, donate it. The same applies to your dressers and chests. Those items buried beneath all of the clothes you actually wear need to go. Just think of how blessed someone may feel to receive the clothing you no longer wear. As long as clothing is in great shape, it can find a second life.
It’s not too late
It’s not too late to start a home update in 2020. Goodness knows, based on how the year has gone, it would be a great idea to start the new year on a new note. Make small changes to your home before the end of the year, it’ll feel good to end the year on a high note.
