It’s officially time for a spring cleaning. While you’re de-cluttering, dusting and organizing your home, why not revitalize it at the same time! Breathing new life into your living space is easier than you might think. You’ll be surprised what a difference you’ll feel if you spend some time improving your space. The following seven tips will help you transform your home:
Reupholster Your Furniture
Do you have a favorite chair or couch? Most family members have a preferred place to relax in the living room, meaning some of your most comfortable or most stylish furniture may end up looking (and feeling) worn and ratty before you were planning to replace it. Rather than invest in expensive new furniture, put your money into furniture reupholstery instead.
Repair Your Furniture
That brings us to our next point… repair your broken furniture. It’s expensive and frustrating to replace the furniture you love, so rather than spend tons of money shopping for new furniture, simply invest in the repairs your favorite chairs need instead. You’ll be surprised what a huge difference repairing your furniture can make for the look and feel of your living room.
Paint Your Walls
Are you over your wall color? Change it! Spring cleaning is the perfect time to buy a few new cans of paint and get to work.
Invest in New Décor
Throw pillows and curtains can make a big difference in the look of your living room. If you’ve had enough of your current feel, invest in new décor in different colors to mix it up. If your old pillows were solid-colored, consider a bold pattern.
Rearrange Your Furniture
It’s easy to fall into a rut when you’re considering redesigning or re-working your home furniture. Even if you buy or paint nothing in your home, simply rearranging your furniture can make your entire home feel brand new. If you weren’t so smart about the way you set up your home in the first place, consider the lighting and flow of the room this time around.
DIY Your Art
Your walls are what you end up looking at the most in your living room. If you’re feeling adventurous, try DIY’ing some artwork to hang up. There are tons of step-by-step walkthroughs online, so all you have to do is pick your favorite!
Reduce and Reuse
You don’t have to buy new furniture or paint your home to change your look. Consider repurposing an old or tired piece of furniture that you already have in a new and unique way. Remove the drawers of an old drawer and make a book case, or turn a door into a table.
Whether you invest in sofa reupholstery or simply a can of paint, you’ll love the way you feel if you invest in your living room this spring! Spring cleaning is the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and get creative reinventing your living room.
