Freshen up the walls
A simple way to make more of your home is to freshen up the walls. Whether you have painted or wallpapered walls, updating them can help you to give your home a whole new look and feel. Take inspiration for each room from Pinterest and recreate the looks that you love. To ‘jazz up’ certain rooms, why not consider adding accent walls? Just think, by adding an accent wall to your home, you can easily and affordably add a theme to each space.

Let more light in
Studies have shown that properties that are dark can cause feelings of depression and a lack of love for the spaces themselves. That’s why it’s important to consider taking steps to enhance your home, creating a space that has more natural light streaming into it. How about replacing your old windows with larger ones, like the designs on offer from Erie Construction, for instance. If you want to let more light into your home, updating your windows is an ideal solution. A simple hack for when you can’t afford to update your windows is to place a mirror facing the window, to reflect natural light back into the room.

Update the furniture
Could your lack of love for your home relate to the fact that your furniture is old and outdated? When areas of our homes fall into disrepair, often this can impact how we feel about them. That’s why, if your furniture is old, dated or in a bad state, it can be worth the cost of replacing it, if it will mean that you have more love for your home. Can’t afford to replace it? How about upcycling it instead?

Take advantage of accessories
It’s never a good idea to overdo the accessories as minimalism is a great design focus to have, but in moderation, accessories can be an ideal way to create a home that is stylish and on-trend. Be mindful however of your home’s style when choosing accessories, as it’s important to ensure that you only incorporate things that will actually enhance your home and not just clutter it up.

It’s natural to fall out of love with your home after a while of having it, but that doesn’t have to mean moving out and finding somewhere new. The key is to take steps, like those mentioned above, to enhance your home and make it a space that once again, you can fall in love with.
