Guest Bedroom to Closet
This transformation may not be for everyone, but it is an option that leave visitors with their jaws dropped wishing they had this closet in their home. If you have a spare bedroom where the door is always shut and is just your spot for throwing old trinkets and donation boxes in, turn it into a dream closet. Clear the walls and paint them a crazy fun color that is outside the box. Add some shelving and built-ins just like you would a normal closet and go wild. Any girl dreams of having a closet like a famous person with the island in the center, a jewelry wall, endless shelves for purses, shoes, and more! Add an island in the center with either shelves or drawers for extra storage and hang a chandelier over it. You could also create a vanity with a mirror and lights to give your new closet a Hollywood feel to it. You can make this as simple or as crazy as you want. After all, it’s your closet.
Adding little accents of material that gives off a high-end look is the ideal way to go for low budget renovating. Backsplash is something so simple that many people look past how big of a difference it can make on a kitchen or bathroom. For example, if you have a simple, clean white kitchen you can add pops of color with your backsplash, while also protecting the walls above your counters. Same goes for your bathroom, use your backsplash to accent your existing design.
Stain Your Cabinets
The main focal point of your bathroom and kitchen are the cabinets. The most common outdated item in homes are indeed the cabinets. Take your old dated wood cabinets and instantly turn them into a modern day look with a dark brown or grey stain.
Tear out Carpet
Replace your carpet with wood or laminate flooring. Carpet in every room of your house can make your home feel stuffy and dated. Tear out the carpet in your living areas and on your stairs to give your home a fresh new look that’s not outdated.
Lighting is so important because it provides an ambience for your home. In your kitchen add under cabinet lighting to give your kitchen a very warm and cozy feel, perfect for nights at home with the family. Also add lighting around your house with lamps or string lights, you will be surprised at the world of a difference.
Adding wall décor around your home can give your visitors the sense of a homey cozy feeling. It’s also a great way to display some family photos and memories that you have made. A home with bare walls and no décor can feel empty, cold, and not cozy which is the opposite of what you want your house to be.
Small changes like this around your house can make a huge difference with the comfort and style of your home. Your home is a place you build your life, make memories, watch milestones, and enjoy time with family and friends. You want your home to be a place where you are comfortable, cozy, and love to be in.
