It’s amazing what a clean coat of paint can do to a room, a fixture or even your favorite piece of furniture. Somehow, by adding that smooth color and fresh coat, it gives the item or space you’re working on new life and makes the home feel refreshed without much work.
So, why not take a look around your house and see what you can upgrade! All you’ll need is your favorite color of paint, a few hours and some creativity, and before you know it, your space will feel brand new!
If you want to start the updating process in a big way, go for the walls of your home. Whether you choose to paint a stand-out accent wall, update the colors within the rooms or even apply a touch-up coat to your existing paint, it will be well worth it. Using a fresh coat on your walls will help the room feel brand new, and it will give it a clean update that it may need! Consider a new color if you’re ready for a change, and if you decide in a few months it doesn’t work for your space, it can be easily changed.
Fixtures & Hardware
It may seem easier to purchase new hardware and fixtures when you tire of the old choices, but don’t throw them out just yet! You can easily update handles, knobs or even plumbing fixtures with a quick coat of paint that gives them a new style. We prefer using spray paint in this case as you will get a smooth finish, and it will only take a few coats to get the look you want. Check out the different metallic spray paints available, including those made especially for fixtures and hardware!
After a while, particular furniture can look older and tired, which usually leads to replacement. But instead, why not look at these pieces another way and consider giving them some new life with a coat of paint. Anything from dressers to storage cabinets can look like a new piece when a new color is applied. Start small by choosing one or two furniture pieces to makeover, and take some time planning out what colors you prefer and what you want for a finished project. Once you’re done, you might just love that old piece of furniture once again.
For a bold change, consider painting and updating your front door! After all, this is your home’s first impression, so it might as well look fresh and updated for anyone who may enter. This is also a great time to consider updating hinges, accents, and doorknobs (see above for some great ideas). Once you make these small changes, you’ll be shocked at the difference it makes and pleased that your front entrance now has some extra personality.
Lastly, if you’re not ready to make a significant commitment to changing items within or around your home, why not start small? You can update simple decor pieces such as vases, decorative accents or lighting with just a touch of paint and a little creativity. This is a great way to try out some bold colors without committing to a large project, and these minor changes can make a massive difference. Pick a few of your favorite pieces and give them a new style!
