Officially, spring started on Wednesday, March 20th. However, many of our minds are likely already filled with thoughts of upcoming warm weather activities at home and on the road. While spring is a good time to hit the road with your family for a few days, it is also a good time to take care of those projects around your home that may have been put on the shelf during the cold winter weather. One of those may even include updating the décor of your home. Below are some of the main areas you may want to consider when thinking of changing the look of a single room or your entire home.
Perhaps one of the easiest and most cost effective ways, to change the look of a space is by adding a new coat of paint to it. If your walls are currently the egg shell white that most of us see as a blank canvas, grab your supplies and get to work. However, if there is currently color on the wall, make sure you get a primer that will cover the color prior to you applying the new look. Keep in mind if you have a feature like vaulted ceilings it may be best call in a professional to handle the height and specific challenges of those ceilings.
Updating the look of your floors may cost a significant amount depending on the size of the area you are looking to change. Prior to shopping for new flooring consider the type that will compliment your desired outcome the most and work best for the use of the room. For example, if you are redoing your living room and have young children, you may want to consider carpeting to limit the risk of any possible injuries. Once you decide on the type of flooring, measure the space to determine how much it will cost.
Another fun way to update your décor is by changing out the window treatments. For example, you may want to consider comfortex cellular shades. This type of treatment has a honeycomb cell construction and is good for rooms that need extra insulation.
Changing the décor of your space can be a fun and exciting way to start the spring. Do a little planning prior to shopping to determine exactly what you need and most of all enjoy the new look!
