A new year means a fresh start! Start the new year off on the right foot by upgrading your space. You spend the most time in your home, so why not make it look the way that you want it to? There are so many easy and affordable ways to make your home look professionally decorated without the price tag. 


Scrolling through Pinterest and gathering home design ideas is always fun, however, it’s actually trying to put those ideas in motion that can be a difficult task. That’s why we’ve gathered these fun, easy, and helpful tips on how to make your home shine this year! 


Build Picture Ledges – For an art arrangement that doesn’t involve a lot of planning, turn to DIY photo ledges. This inexpensive and easy project makes it super attainable to change out photos and art whenever the mood strikes!


Create Continuity – Make sure a multi-room design scheme includes some unifying colors that are in the same scheme, materials, or patterns to create a cohesive feel throughout your space. 


Use Removable Wallpaper – Choose an accent wall in a room to cover with peel-and-stick wallpaper! It’s super easy to apply without the need for paste, and can be removed quickly when you’re ready to transform your room again.


Add an Area Rug – An area rug can help elevate a room in minutes. When shopping for an area rug, there are several things to consider including, size, shape, and material. This easy hack is sure to update your whole entire space!


Use Mirrors Strategically – Some designers believe every room should have a mirror, but even if you don’t go that far, decorating with a mirror can be especially useful in small or dark rooms. In cramped spaces, mirrors give the impression of more space, and in shadowy areas, they reflect the light perfectly. 


Whether you’re redecorating your entire first floor or just updating a room that has been looking a bit unfinished, these tips are sure to bring your home into 2023 beautifully.


Cheers to 2023!
