If you’re looking to redecorate your home, you’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to spend a fortune. With just a few added features, you can transform the look of any room to match the latest design styles.
Explore our guide to learn some fast and inexpensive improvements you can make to redesign your kitchen, bathroom or living room.
Start with Kitchen and Bath Remodeling
The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. This is where we spend a lot of our time preparing meals and spending time with friends and family. They become a real center of attention in open-concept homes, where guests tend to gather during dinner parties or other get-togethers.
Bathrooms are also a great place to start remodeling because it often just takes a few new pieces to make a difference.
Update Your Kitchen Cabinets
Simply changing out your cabinet doors is one of the most inexpensive ways to update your kitchen. Just make sure your new doors match the face frames of your cabinets. Other than that, the sky is the limit! Try different styles of cabinet doors to achieve the right look for your home. Or try glass cabinet doors. Switching to glass keeps all your dishware, appliances or seasonings in full view for easy access.
Add New Lighting Fixtures to Your Kitchen
LED strip lights are a fantastic way to showcase your kitchen’s most interesting features. They’re inexpensive, easy to install and virtually invisible if placed correctly. Try running strip lights underneath your cabinets to cast light down on your countertops. These are effective at showing off any art pieces you place or your collection of spices.
Installing linear lighting fixtures in your kitchen is also a nice way to accentuate your center island. You can create a linear lighting effect using a range of fixtures. Try installing some pendant lighting fixtures in your kitchen, just above the center of your island, to add more light and leave plenty of space to prepare your favorite meals.
Update Your Bathroom Vanity
Changing out your vanity is a simple and inexpensive way to change the dynamics in your bathroom. Try installing a painted border around your vanity mirror to add a splash of color to your bathroom refresh. You can also try installing a set of sconces to cast light down on your bathroom countertops.
Replace the Hardware
Sometimes it’s the little things that can make all the difference. You can change out features like door knobs and faucets to switch up the look of your bathroom for very little money. Try adding polished nickel knobs to your drawers with a chrome faucet to provide a sleek and modern look.
Updating Your Living Room Area
Your living room is all about comfort and relaxation, so adding a little texture or color is never a bad idea. There are plenty of inexpensive ways to completely switch up the style of any living area.
Add an Accent Wall to your Living Room
Accent walls are a simple way to show off your decorations, art pieces or add extra color to your room. There are a few different ways to create a stunning living room accent wall.
Adding a series of floating shelves to a bare wall provides the perfect place to showcase knickknacks or houseplants for a more biophilic design. You can also place a large bookcase against the wall to get the same effect.
Wall panels come in a wide range of colors and materials to provide extra color or texture to your area. Adding geometric panels to a wall can give your living room a modern look. Fabric panels add a touch of softness. Finally, you can achieve both softness and color by hanging canvas art on your wall. Try searching antique shops to find a large art piece that fits your unique style.
Roll Out a Large Rug
Rugs have several benefits to them. They are an inexpensive way to update your flooring without spending a lot on new carpet, wood or tile. They are easy to replace, just in case someone spills wine on them or your pets have an accident.
But the largest benefit to rugs is they can quickly be swapped out to update your design style to whatever mood strikes you. Since most rugs cover a wide area, they can add both texture and a new aesthetic to your living room quickly and inexpensively.
