5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Home Looking Fresh in the GTA

 

Easy Ways To Keep Your House Looking Fresh

We all have those friends who seem to have the perfect home,and wonder how they do it. But with a full time job, an energetic pup and a baby on the way, it's hard to keep up with the Joneses -- especially when we are supposed to be saving money for our future.
There are a few things you can do that will keep your home looking fresh without breaking the bank.

1. Paint - A fresh coat of paint makes a world of difference. When rooms begin to look dull or boring to you an easy way to make a change that you will love it painting. Painting the walls will definitely add a new vibe and create a sense of freshness to your home. Repainting your home, especially the high-traffic areas, is a cheap and simple way to give your rooms an instant facelift. To maintain the fresh look it is a good idea to re paint the high traffic areas with the same color.

2. Lighting - When you walk into my house, the first thing that catches your eye is the modern glass chandelier over the breakfast bar. It is not a traditional place to hang this fixture, but that is why it's such a focal point. Lighting in your home is essential, dim/darker areas often look more unappealing whereas brighter eye catching lights often are appreciated and envied by guests.

3. Accent Pillows - Colorful or trendy patterned pillows are a great way to add a pop of style to your couch, bed or anywhere else. By simply adding accent pillows to your home you can change the entire look. That older dumpy couch we all have looks old and dumpy, but when adding accent pillows it ads color and jazz where it was not before. Accent pillows can add a mood or a pop or color so much needed rooms, our eyes automatically go towards colors and with new accent pillows the whole mood of the room can be changed. When skeptical to add a bold color to the room, buy a couple pillows from a store with a reliable return policy and left them in the space for 24 hours. If you don't love them, return and start again!

4. Unique Bathroom Mirror - An upgraded bathroom is one of the first selling points of a home. So, why not spiff up your bathroom even if you rent or don't have plans to sell? An interesting bathroom mirror over your vanity will be sure to do just that. The options are endless and the only limitation is the size of your space.

5. Kitchen Essentials - The kitchen is the room where many families spend most of their time while in the house. Lets face it, a whole kitchen renovation is easily in the thousands. But why do a total make over if you just want a simple change? Making changes in the kitchen is easy. Simple things like changing the handles on the drawers and cabinets or changing the back-splash make a huge difference. New handles could re create the look of your cabinets or changing the back-splash and create a more modern appealing feel to your older kitchen.
