Paint Feature Walls

The easiest and least expensive change that will produce a huge impact in your home is to add paint to the walls. Choose a prominent wall in your home and add a bold paint color. This is known as a feature wall. Use bold colors such as black, red, blue, green or brown. This color selection should coordinate with the sofas or pillows in the space. You can also paint horizontal or vertical stripes to give the room added depth.

Change Light Fixtures

Nothing changes the look and ambiance of a room more than adding decorative lighting. This can be achieved by using lamps, chandeliers or recessed lights. Consider highlighting a wall or a tall tree with spot lights or track lighting. This will create a lovely nighttime ambiance.

Change Cabinet Hardware

You can instantly give your kitchen cabinets a fresh and stylish new look by replacing the cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. This can be achieved using materials such as wrought iron, glass, pewter or copper. Cabinet hardware is available in numerous colors and sizes.

Change Bedding

Give your bedroom an exciting new look by changing the style and color of the bedding. Add a fluffy comforter and a variety of different sizes of pillows. Be sure to add shams, throws and quilts for a more stylish look.

Add Curtains

Soften the look of the windows in your home with dramatic window coverings. Greenbaum Interiors and other quality interior design companies offer a wide selection including blinds, shutters, curtains and shades. These additions will add interest and texture to windows of any size or shape.

Hang Wall Frames

You can instantly change the look of a long hallway with the addition of photo frames. Consider using a collection of vintage frames with intricate colors and details to create a custom look for the space.

By implementing simple changes in your home, you can give your spaces extra added warmth, style and character all within a day.
