When you start to think about decorating your home, you can often get lost in a bit of a minefield. You start to wonder where you should start, what you should do and what you should prioritize. Not only do you then have to find a style of home decor you like, but you have to work through the steps of getting it all done. If that all seems like too much trouble, why not work on upgrading your home in a different way? You can make small or simple changes to your home that can make the world of difference, without having to redo the whole thing.


A Lick Of Paint

One of the easiest ways you can upgrade your home is to update the paintwork you have. If your rooms or a certain room hasn’t been repainted in some time, it can start to look old and shabby. So, what you can do is give your home a new lease of life with a fresh lick of paint. You might only need to do a little, or you could do the whole house and see what difference it makes.


Remodel A Room

If you know that updating the paintwork won’t be enough, then you might need to do a mini-remodel, even if it's just one one room. If you have tired fixtures and fittings, then repainting might not make a difference. You might choose to do a bathroom remodel or renovate your kitchen. Both rooms can really improve the overall look and feel of a house and they’re often rooms that you’ve always wanted to redo. You can always use more kitchen cabinets or a bigger shower right? You can find ideas in the VKB Kitchen & Bath.

Wood and luxury vinyl laminate flooring can dramatically improve the appearance of any room, are easy to install, and raise your home's value. The best part is that they require very few tools to do so. Wood flooring will likely require an air compressor and a nail gun (both of which can be rented), and luxury vinyl laminate typically only requires a box cutter and a rubber mallet. 
This is a great project for the family who wants to take on their first DIY project that will immediately raise their home's value but won't be too difficult. Furthermore, their investment in the tools for this task can then be used for their other jobs around the house. For a good rundown on the right tools, check out Tool Tally. 

Jazz Up The Accessories

If you really do want to keep it all, you can do a little with just a little. If you have a pretty basic backdrop in the room, you’ll be able to transform the space with the help of accessories. Take your living space as an example. If you have neutral walls, flooring, and furniture, you can add a lot of life and personality by choosing creative and colorful accessories, such as throws, cushions, and candles.



Another option is to extend. Especially if you have a lot of budget to play around with. You might find that you need some more space or, to make a complete transformation, a lot more room to work with. Extending your home can be as easy or complicated as you want to make it. You might choose to add a little more room on to your kitchen or extend an entire side of your house. Either way, it will definitely upgrade what you’ve already got.


Buy New Furniture

And finally, you might want to think about changing the furniture you already have in the home. If you’ve had furniture for quite some time, it can start to look shabby. A new bed and a new mattress from Sleep Holic can do wonders both for your decor and sleep! Or, you might have chosen one style and then discovered it’s really not you. By updating the furniture you have in one room, or the entire space, you can completely change the design you already have.
