With every new year comes new resolutions- and let’s face it, your home is probably one of them. There’s always something that needs to be done around the house. We’ve come up with a few simple tricks about how you can spruce up your home for 2018.
Nothing quite revitalizes a home like a fresh coat of paint. A few of our favorite neutrals are Sherwin Williams Toque White and Mindful Gray. If you’re looking to a few trendy colors of 2018, take a look at our post about the colors of 2018! If it’s Pantone’s color of the year you’re looking for, try adding Sherwin William’s Impulsive Purple as a feature wall or perhaps a powder room wall color.
Homes are often burdened with those cookie cutter type light fixtures. You know what we’re talking about, right? The typical flush mount glass dome lights, the fan light fixture, or the round bulb vanity lights. It’s actually quite simple to replace those (with an electrician’s help) and can make such a huge difference!
Adding or replacing pendants in the kitchen over an island is one place we’d highly recommend splurging a little! We love grouping several together too, for impact of course.
The addition of a light fixture in a small or large entry makes for a great first impression!
One last place we recommend switching out is vanity lighting in the bathrooms. We love the idea of adding pendants instead of over-the-mirror lighting.
If your kitchen needs an update and painting or replacing cabinets isn’t in your budget, a quick change of the hardware can really help out. If you’re adding some metallic light fixtures, choose a corresponding finish for your hardware. We also love something a little different, like these genuine horn pulls and malachite knobs from Matthew Studios.
Doing these things won’t take much time but we promise you’ll see a difference!
