Did you know that 47% of Americans haven't updated their home decor in the last five years? It might not seem like a long time to have the same home decor, but interior decorating trends change every season. Keeping up isn't always possible, but the occasional update is a welcome change for many people.
Fortunately, updating your home decor doesn't take a whole lot of effort or any home renovations if you don't want it to. If you're looking for an easy fix to your drab decor, keep reading.
Make the Space Seem Larger
Open floor plans are a hot commodity right now in real estate, but it can be tough to find an older home with a modern, open floor plan. But don't call the contractor just yet. If you want a room to seem larger, the fix can be as simple as removing large furniture pieces, painting some pieces a lighter color, or placing mirrors strategically around the room. These interior design updates give the illusion of a larger, more open space.
Add New Lighting
New lighting, and proper lighting, can help make a home seem much warmer and more inviting. If one of your rooms is lacking in the light department, consider getting some statement lighting. The dining room is always a great place for statement chandeliers, and even adding some nautical theme decor lamps to a room can give it fresh life while illuminating the space.
Change Your Theme
Themed rooms can be hard to pull off, but when done right, they really shine. If you're looking for a new theme, why not try nautical? Nautical items such as life preserver decor and nautical wheels can serve as wall art and really tie the theme of a room together. Life preserver decor can even be a statement piece elsewhere in your home as well. Changing your theme can really help you see a space in a new way.
