5 Ways to Upgrade Your Home’s Interior

If cold temperatures and snowstorms are making you feel stir-crazy this winter, you’re not alone. Upgrading your home’s interior can freshen up your home, help you prepare for spring cleaning, and optimize your living space. With that in mind, here are five easy and affordable ways to upgrade your home this season.

Focus on the bedroom

If you spend a lot of time in your bedroom, your space might start to feel boring or outdated. To update your bedroom, start by decluttering your closet. Donate, sell, or recycle any pieces you haven’t worn within the last few months and find a space for the pieces you decide to keep.

Next, swap your current bedding for custom bedding. Although swapping your bedding might seem like a simple change, it can make a big difference in the entire vibe of your bedroom. If you’re not sure where to start, the experts at Decor Fabrics & Design can help you design the perfect bedding to compliment your room’s décor. Custom bedding is a great way to preserve your favorite memories and create one-of-a-kind home decor.

Update your appliances

New appliances might seem like a costly investment, but they’ll end up paying for themselves in the long run. With smart home appliances like thermostats and fixtures, you can control the temperature anywhere from your phone. Meanwhile, smart LED lights connect with Amazon Echo and Google Assistant voice assistants for easy, hands-free control. Investing in smart home appliances can lower your energy bill and make day-to-day tasks convenient and hassle-free.

Decorate with wall art

If you’ve captured photos of gorgeous waterfalls or serene forests, why not showcase them in your home? Hanging photo panels over your couch in the living room can highlight the magic of your surroundings while serving as an eye-catching statement piece for your space. Wall art can also help you relive your favorite memories with friends and family. Decorating your space with wall art will show guests much your family means to you and allow you to cherish memories together daily.

Paint a unique accent wall

If you’re looking to add a pop of color to a dull space, try painting an accent wall. Accent walls dramatically change the vibe of your space, and they’ll make your space feel brand new.

An accent wall might sound like a bold change, but it actually looks chic and modern when done right. Within a few hours, you can change the color of your room to liven up your space or refresh the color of faded walls.

While a gallon of high-quality paint typically costs around $35, you’ll only need a quarter gallon to paint an accent wall. For a one-of-a-kind accent wall, try painting a unique finish. Combine different colors to create beautiful effects, like ombre or color washing.

Optimize your storage space

Optimizing your storage space can make your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or living room feel bigger. And with the new year right around the corner, there’s no better time to declutter.

Storage furniture keeps your stuff out of sight and out of mind when it’s not in use. Consider investing in storage benches for your bedroom to hold off-season clothes, extra bedding, and other miscellaneous pieces. A storage bench can double as a spot to relax by the window or put your shoes on before leaving for work.

Additionally, you can use storage furniture to create your own custom storage system. Arrange shelves to store your favorite accessories, plants, and pictures. If your wall space is limited, use corner shelves.

Upgrading your home’s interior doesn’t have to break the bank. All in all, making simple changes to your home can make your space feel fresh just in time for the new year.
