Adding new life to a space isn’t always about redoing the entire room from top to bottom. Sometimes, a few simple updates can make a tremendous difference! If you’re short on time, but have big plans to redecorate your home, these five simple decorating tips can provide you with inspiration to inject some new life into your home.
1. Add a Collection of Vases
An assortment of vases on a table, countertop, or mantle is an instant way to add some color and style to a room. Group the vases by similar or contrasting colors; leave them empty, or put a few simple blooms in each. It’s an instant way to create a fresh new look.
2. Update the Lighting
Updating lighting doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as adding in some new lamps, or lighting fixtures. Consider updating your lampshades with fresh, new ones in fresh, modern colors.
3. Paint a Wall
Painting is a fun and simple way to update a room. The good news is that you don’t have to paint the entire room to make a difference; you could paint an accent wall as a focal point –a simple way to change a room’s dynamic.
4. Add a Rug
Adding a rug is perhaps one of the fastest ways to update. A new rug can help make a room feel more welcoming and inviting.
5. Update the Wall Art
Don’t underestimate the impact that a new piece of wall art can have. Adding in some new mirrors, a wall sculpture, or a new piece of art, is a fast and simple way to completely transform the look of a room.
