If you’ve been living in your home for a while, you may find yourself a bit stuck in a rut and tired of your old furnishings and accessories. Then perhaps it is time for a change. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, you can still treat yourself, and your house, to a little upgrade.
You might begin by treating yourself to a few new accessories. Purchase a colorful painting or an art object to display on a shelf. Add a few cozy pillows or warm throws to your chairs and sofa. Pick up a fun new floor lamp or table lamp for extra brightness, a fanciful clock or even a set of candles. You might enjoy framing some special family photos, displaying them on shelves or creating a collage on a wall.
If you’re able to spend a bit more money, you could focus on purchasing some new indoor and outdoor furniture. Add a comfortable recliner to your family room, or replace your old dining set with something modern and stylish. Treat yourself to a bookshelf or a display case to hold your favorite books or collectibles. If you have a patio, you might enjoy a bench or swing.
A Small Remodel
Perhaps you’re up to doing a small remodel to treat yourself and your house. You could repaint a room or two or even just add an accent wall. Replacing the hardware on your kitchen cabinets can freshen that room. Screen in your porch, or recreate your home office with new shelves and a built-in desk.
Finally, if you can’t afford a remodel, try a reset. Rearrange the furniture in a couple rooms. You might, for example, completely change the layout of your living room for a better flow or shift your bedroom set around to make room for a seating area.
Whatever you decide to do to treat yourself and your house, make sure it’s something you’ll enjoy for a long time to come.
