5 Tips for Putting the Glam Back in Your Home
With the summer coming at an end and the heat dying down, now is the perfect time of year to make simple touch-ups to spruce up your home’s interior and exterior. Let’s face it; remodeling can be expensive, especially if looking to get that dream kitchen you’ve always wanted. If you don’t have the dollars to allocate quite yet, relax—there’s no need to dive into a full-remodeling project with these 5 simple tips for getting your home up to par in the meantime.
Replace Front Entry Hardware
It’s important to add curb appeal to your home. For this small project, consider updating your front entry hardware. Bronze and brush nickel are two of the most prominent types of hardware used throughout most modern homes today.
Restain the Deck
For many homeowners and renters alike, the backyard area is a true haven. Kick back and relax
on a newly stained deck. Staining your deck can protect the wood of stains, mildew and damaging effects of UV rays. While you’re at it… include some lanterns and update the furnishings. You can find great deals on outdoor novelties towards the end of the summer season.
If your home hasn’t had any updates in terms of lighting, you may want to do a quick walk-thru and see where you can add a bit of charm by substituting an old light fixture with a more contemporary look. To make an impact, opt to replace your foyer light with a small crystal chandelier to add the “wow” factor when guests first enter your home.
Get creative. Paint can do wonders for a home and almost serve as a mini-face lift. Consider replacing the cabinetry hardware and updating the cabinets with a bold new color.
Dress the Windows
An easy and simple way to update the living room is to add a splash of color to the windows. Whether you wish for down to the floor window treatments or wood shades, change out your current window dressings for anew.
