Meeting the same ol’ boring white walls every morning can suck the excitement out of being a young and ‘cool’ homeowner. You had big plans about setting up a statement wall with contrasting barrel chairs and a complimentary rug placed in just the right way. But alas, you’re stuck staring at magnolia emulsion for the foreseeable future.
Your home should depict the zealous life you lead, and if it isn’t currently doing that, then it’s time for a change. If you’re aiming to give your home a facelift to knock your guests’ socks off, check out some of the innovative ideas below.
A Cozy Entryway Mudroom:
Mud streaks and a mad dash to the front door every morning? No thanks. Create a serene and inviting space for yourself (and your guests) by adding a mudroom.
It doesn’t have to be an entire room; a nook with some hooks, a bench with a few comfortable cushions, and wicker baskets will do the trick.
Add frames to the walls with warnings about dirty feet (you can’t be sorry for getting mad if they don’t listen, you did warn them) and some cheery artwork to make the space feel like home.
Install Big, Bigger, Biggest Windows:
A room with ceiling to floor windows (okay, maybe a little smaller too) will exude a vibe of relaxation, luxury, and poshness.
Don’t be scared away by their high price tag; you can get the style with some innovative window treatments.
Hang drapes high and wide to make the windows appear larger than they are, use sheers to welcome natural light while still providing privacy, or get some motorized shades for ultimate convenience. Throw in a corner chair to make it your ‘newspaper with coffee, please’ space, and you’re done!
Upgrade Your Closets:
We all know you’re not getting rid of those designer jeans that no longer fit (you’ll wear them again someday) or that top you bought five years ago and only wore once. So, let’s focus on the doable: a custom closet system.
A professional can help you design and install a custom closet that will make the most of your space and leave you feeling like Isla Fisher from Confessions of a Shopaholic every time you open your closet doors.
A new closet system will make getting ready in the morning easier and add value to your home.
Multifunctional Spaces Winning the Storage War:
Are Saturdays for laundry and Sundays for sorting freshly washed batches? If your laundry room is currently doubling as a storage space for out-of-season clothing and holiday decor, it’s time to give it a makeover.
By creating a more efficient space, you can make doing laundry less of a chore. Install shelves and cabinets above your washer and dryer to store laundry detergent, dryer sheets, and other supplies.
Place a comfy bench to fold your clothes and store them in baskets underneath. Add a coat of fresh paint and some pretty artwork, and you’ll barely recognize the space!
Waking the Kitchen from Its Slumber:
You are not a dedicated cook, but you love to entertain. Your kitchen is functional, but it’s not really your style. If this describes your case, it might be time for a kitchen renovation.
Even if you don’t have the budget for a complete gut job, there are still ways to give your kitchen a facelift. Start by painting the kitchen cabinets and walls. You will be surprised when you finish! Who had thought paint could make such a difference?
If you have the budget, replace your countertops and backsplash. They are usually not very expensive but can make a world of difference.
