Updating the interior of your home

Are you tired of your same old space and looking to change things up a bit? There are many great ways in which you can freshen up a room so it looks new again.  The best part is that you can change up a room and not spend a fortune on the process.  Painting, rearranging and adding just a few new pieces to a room can make a World of difference!




A totally new color or a fresh coat of the same color can make a remarkable difference in a room. It will make the walls look cleaner and brighter, which is the basis for any new room makeover. If you are choosing a new color, pick one that still coordinates with the majority of the pieces in the room so you don’t have to go out and buy new furniture.

Wall Pieces

Wall pieces don’t have to be expensive works of art. A new wall piece can be something you found in the attic and never hung up, it can be a photograph that is enlarged and framed or it can be something homemade. What the art piece needs to do is coordinate with the colors in the room and be a memory or a favorite event or location.  This can then provide a conversation piece for visitors into your home.


You don’t need to go out and get new furniture to give the room a new feel. How about you just rearrange the furniture you already have and the change may feel new. Change the biggest piece first so that when it comes time to move the smaller pieces you know where they will fit easier. Allow space for walkways and to view a television or a fireplace! Once the room is moved around you can enjoy looking around from a different perspective.

It’s pretty easy to make a quick change to a room that will give it a whole new feel.
