Small Design Changes that Have Big Impact

With the change of seasons, attention turns from the backyard to our indoor spaces. With the cooler months ahead and more time spent indoors, who wouldn’t love a quick living space refresh? Fortunately, you don’t need to completely revamp everything to have a new look. Small changes can have a big impact as well.

Paint is one of the easiest ways to change the look of any space. Paint fads quickly and designers recommend repainting every 5-7 years. This is an opportunity to use new colors. Dark and warm to create a cozy, relaxing space or go bright and bold to add energy or inspiration. If a larger project is too daunting, then adding a single accent wall provides drama and interest.

Look at updating lighting and other fixtures. It’s surprising how quickly a lamp can change the tone of a room. Don’t be afraid of mixing traditional furniture styles with modern fixtures. Use lighting in a new way. Highlight a special picture or piece of art. Light a dark corner or use variable light bulbs to provide flexibility in intensity.

Another great tip is to hit the local farmer’s markets and fairs. Style does not need to come from the chain stores or design magazines. Add some eclectic pillows, candles, baskets, or anything else that interests you. Personal style is just that – personal. With fall on the horizon, spruce up your living spaces with a few small changes.

Even better, if you decide to sell your home within the next year, these will make your listing that much more appealing than others.
