For less than 500 dollars you can give your home a fresh look with these 4 purchases.
This works for sellers as well as homeowners just wanting to freshen up the look of their home. To begin you need to look around your home and find a color that will work in most of your spaces. Chances are it is a color you are using most consistently in your home already. This will be your accent color and all the items I have recommended purchasing should have this color in them to create a cohesive and finished look throughout your home.
1)New pillows: Never under estimate the power of new pillows. For just a small investment, new pillows have the power breathe fresh life into a space. Their color will not only brighten and update your space but it will distract the eye from focusing on worn out furniture.
2)New bedding: Many times, an investment of new bedding is all it takes to make a bedroom look great. I recommend keeping your old bedding under the new, and folding the new bedding back at night so it stays looking perfect!
3)Fresh towels: simply by purchasing one set of towels and 1-2 extra hand towels will give a bathroom a finished look. I recommend choosing your accent color and white or off white in most cases. Fold them and put them on the towel racks with “do not use” instructions for everyone in the family. Leave one old towel by the sink that they can use and you can easily stash under the counter when you head out the door.
4)Accessories: Pick up a few accessories in the color you have chosen to accent with. Then place them around the main spaces in the house. i.e. bowl with decorative balls on the coffee table, colored box on a side table, dish towels in the kitchen with a rug. You may also purchase a spray paint in you accent color and paint up some of your old accessories.
