If you look around your home and wish for an upgrade but know you still have some more saving to do, you’re not alone. These days, saving money is a huge priority for many people. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make some small changes to your space. You might be surprised by how a few small changes can make a big difference. At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we’ve got a few tips on how to spruce up your home quickly and easily.
A Touch of Sophistication
It might be weird to hear, but throw pillows actually can elevate a room by making it inviting and elegant. Be sure to blend the looks—get different sizes and textures to add visual depth, and be sure to mix patterns and solids as well. Also consider adding very soft throw blankets—drape them over the guest bed or a side chair and encourage touching.
Update Old Fixtures
In the kitchen, cabinet and drawer handles can really date the space. If you don’t have them, add them, and if you have old ones, consider replacing them. Same with the doorknobs around the house. It’s a quick way to modernize an area and make it look expensive without spending more than you’d like.
Reduce Design Pieces Around Your Home
These days, less is definitely more when it comes to décor and accent pieces. Take a hard look at your decorative pieces to determine which are the ones you really love, and let go of the rest—you can store them out of the way or just give them away (or garage sale them for a little spare cash). This will allow you space to highlight the best pieces and will allow you to appreciate them more.
Any time you have some extra cash you’re willing to spend, be sure laser-focus the spend. A statement piece like a new couch or exquisite coffee table can elevate a room on its own. So can new or enhanced window fashions. If you go with floor-to-ceiling draperies, you’ll create a stunning sophisticated look. Or choose distinguished coverings such as Silhouette® or Pirouette® window shadings to bring something new to the space. Or add side panels to the treatments you already have. The Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ is a great place to find coordinating fabrics, finishing details, and more.
