Everyone is spending more time at home right now. With so much time on our hands, it’s natural to want to spruce up our homes. While furniture stores and other retailers are closed, the good news is there are home improvement stores and online delivery to help us make the best use of this time and make some easy changes to freshen up our homes.
The added bonus? As a homeowner, these 7 easy ways will increase your tranquility at home and boost your property’s overall value and curb appeal, should you decide you want to sell your home in the near future. So let’s dive into it!
7 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Home
1. Outdoors – Big box home improvement stores are open and full of summer blooms; this is a great time to add color to your yard.
2. Update Your Kitchen – Kitchen trends have changed. Add some color to your space with modern paint or even a colorful appliance. Kitchens are also a big selling point when listing your home, so updating this now will save you time and money later.
3. Reimagine Your Living Room – With a little time to kill, try moving your living room furniture around for a fresh look. Visit a local big box store for decorative pillows, area rugs, frames, vases, and other décor details.
4. Change Your Walls – An accent wall is an easy way to liven up your space. Invest a couple of hours to paint one of your walls a fresh color. Build a gallery wall with family or vacation pictures – anything that draws attention to the wall and interest to the room.
5. Improve the Lighting – Simple things like installing new light bulbs or fixtures can really change the mood of a room.
6. Plant a Garden – Whether inside or out, there’s no better time to try your hand at an herb or fresh vegetable garden.
7. Clean and Organize – Take the time to finally tackle that cleaning project.
We’re all spending more time at home; as we appreciate our homes more, we can also take this opportunity to tackle some of the changes we’ve been wanting to make.
Even better, if you decide to sell your home within the next year, these will make your listing that much more appealing than others.
