Easy Home Updates with Big Impact

1) Refresh With a Feature Wall 
A fresh coat of paint is a quick, affordable and satisfying way to make a big impact on the look and feel of your space. Make this change even easier by painting one feature wall instead of the whole room.

Feature walls instantly add interest and character to any room. Plus, by focusing on one wall you will also be keeping costs down.

Consider bright paint, fun wallpaper or get creative with artwork and old picture frames to create an eye-catching gallery wall.

2) Upcycle
Upcycling has been a popular interior design trend for a while now, and for a good reason. It helps reduce the amount of discarded furniture that ends up in the landfill. Plus, it gives you the chance to create truly unique furnishings.

With the right mindset (and some help from Pinterest), you can create new from the old in no time.

3) Add Space With Mirrors
After spending this much time in your house, any space can begin to feel cramped. Mirrors are a great, affordable way  to make your space feel bigger without extending its actual blueprint.

In the right location, mirrors can reflect light around the room, add depth and give the illusion of space.

4) Opt For Multifunctional
Adding new furniture is a sure-fire way to give outdated interiors a much-needed new look, but it can be expensive.

Instead of buying numerous items that serve a single purpose, go with multifunctional pieces that double up as extra storage or additional seating. Investing in multifunctional furniture can save you space and money.

5) New Flooring for Less
If your floors need a new look, consider alternatives. Longing for hardwood floors? Consider luxury vinyl tile flooring or click-and-lock laminate that will give you the same look at a far lower price point.
