Quick and Easy Home Transformations

 Guest Blogger: Brandi Peralta, Director of Sales 

Buying a home was a huge milestone for me, as I am sure it is for a lot of people! We count down the days to closing and can’t wait to get our hands on the keys to start making the place feel like home. What none of us expect is how quickly the need for change can come, especially for those that just like to shake things up every now and again. You might even find that moving into a new home gives you the itch to change something up. That doesn’t mean run out and buy a new house, especially when there are much more cost-effective options that can offer a quick and easy change!

- PAINT! It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do with a little spare time and some sweat equity. There are many reasons to run to purchase some paint. It could just be to refresh what you have, touch up nicks in the wall caused by movers or everyday life, or maybe you’re feeling more daring and want to add something bright, bold, or even a pattern. There is no doubt that paint can give you that pop of re-fresh you’re looking for. Finish off your new look with some new throw pillows, and accent pieces and you have reinvented your space.

- Another quick and easy change? CABINET HARDWARE! It will blow you away how taking the brushed nickel hardware off of your kitchen cabinets and replacing them with a matte black or daring gold hardware will create such an impact. Even easier than the painting and just as dramatic a result! There are so many options that will match your overall aesthetic in your home from a sleek, modern pull to a more traditional knob and cup look. Run to your nearest hardware store today or scour the internet to find the finishing touch to your cabinets.

- LIGHTING FIXTURES can help your personal taste shine through easily. With plenty of different styles available, it can truly elevate a space. All it takes is a quick trip to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot and a little glancing at the ceiling to find the perfect chandelier, ceiling fans, or bathroom lighting.

- DÉCOR can liven up an otherwise drab room, and with stores like Home Goods and At Home conveniently located, it doesn’t have to be expensive either! From area rugs to throw pillows, it is easy to bring in pops of color and patterns to bring just the right look to your room.

Choose a few things from this list to bring a bit of change into your home or tackle it all for a more drastic approach!
