6 Quick and Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Home

Freshening up your home doesn’t necessarily have to mean a full remodel. Here are six quick and easy steps you can take to spruce up your living space.

Wash vinyl siding

1. Clean Your Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding can keep a house looking new for years. But if left neglected, it can end up looking old and dingy. A quick power wash will brighten up your home’s exterior with a clean look.

2. Repaint the Front Door

You might not realize it, but a beat up front door can kill a home’s curb appeal. Find a fun, lively color that complements your home’s exterior, and see how a freshly-painted door can give your home a new look.

Applying wallpaper

3. Apply Removable Wallpaper

Gone are the days of your grandma’s wallpaper! Nowadays, there are hundreds of beautiful, chic patterns to choose from. Using a peel-and-stick removable wallpaper is a great way to liven up a room, create a design focal point, and bring some fresh visuals into your home without a forever commitment.

Painting the walls

4. Paint Your Walls

It may seem like your walls are still some shade of white, but after just a couple of years of use by a family, they can get noticeably dingy. A quick coat of paint can make a home feel new again. Plus, it gives you a chance to step out and create a new look for a room or for your whole home!

5. Refresh Your Cabinets

No, you don’t need a “demo day” and months of reconstruction to give your kitchen a facelift. Try a fresh coat of durable paint on either upper or lower cabinets to help your kitchen feel fresh again.

6. Upgrade Your Backsplash

This is another quick solution to spruce up your kitchen. It’s a fun, easy project that can be knocked out in a weekend, and that can inspire you to tackle some more projects down the road.
