Bring back your house’s former charm

Stuck in a rut? Consider giving your house a stylish makeover. Unlike total upgrades,makeovers can be finished in a single day. In fact, some house makeovers don’t cost a cent. If you’re ready to refresh your home, check out these home makeover ideas.

Walls that pop – Hang framed portraits of relatives and friends on a wall in your den. Don’t just hang the pictures.Put each picture in a different colored or different size frame. If you’re feeling especially gutsy, paint the wall an attention grabbing yellow, orange,blue or green. This wall pickup works well with children’s playrooms too.

Double up in the bedroom – Grab bolts,washers and a drill. Get support beams, slats and safety rails. Get ready to turn your children’s twin beds into bunk beds. Add a ladder, so your children sleeping on the top bunk can easily climb in and out of bed. Decorate the space where the other twin bed formerly was with a rustic chest. Fill the trust with your children’s toys.

Lay new carpet – This simple home makeover will make your entire house feel different. For weeks, you might feel as if you bought a new house or had another room added onto your existing home.To save money, shop at discount carpet stores. You can also save by getting the carpet from a wholesaler.

Re-purpose your basement – Desire for more space is a leading reason why couples move into bigger houses. But, you may not have to buy a larger house if you clear old furniture, old clothes and boxes out of your basement. Donate the goods to a charity that serves people living in your community. Use your basement as a play room, family room or home office. All you need is a sofa, two chairs, bookcase and rugs. Place furniture in your basement as if you were furnishing your upstairs family room. Add in an office desk if you’re converting your basement into a home office. Decorate the space with plants, family pictures and framed motivational quotes.

Rearrange living room furniture – Move your living room sofa away from the window. Put it against an opposite long wall. Add new upholstery to living room chairs.

Take advantage of craft stores – Visit craft stores in search of items like elegant silk flowers, hand woven baskets and wreaths. String colorful, silk ribbon through wreaths. Hang a self-decorated wreath on your house’s front door. Place a crystal vase or handwoven basket filled with elegant silk flowers on your coffee tables and bathroom counter tops.

Wallpaper works  wonders – Line your bathroom walls with decorative wallpaper. Think seashells, black and white etchings and turtles.

True. You spend a lot of time at work. You also spend a lot of time at home. Whether you realize it or not (like work), your home influences your mood, attitude and your energy. Give yourself a boost by refreshing your house, particularly rooms that you spend the most time in.

Adding a fresh coat of paint or stain to your porch and stairs, adding flowers and new mulch, and keeping your grass green and luscious can greatly add to the curb appeal of your home and ultimately the value.
  1. Popcorn Ceilings & Wood Paneling: Completely removing popcorn ceilings and/or wood paneling will add tremendous value to a home. Both features are extremely outdated and unappealing.
