There are many ways that you can upgrade your home. There are, of course, big renovations you can do, however you may not have the time or the money for that. Luckily, there are many subtle home upgrades you can do that will make a big difference.
Changing the colors of the walls in your home is a subtle way to upgrade your home because it doesn’t take much time, intense work, or money to do it. Painting an accent wall is an even more subtle way to improve the look of an individual room. When you paint an accent wall, it won’t take too much of your time or energy but can help a room feel larger. Your accent wall can be a focal point and can help brighten up your room with a color of your choice. You can really go bold with this color since it is only a wall and won’t overwhelm the room or the rest of your home.
Replacing your windows makes a difference in a multitude of ways. First, it helps your home be more efficient. New windows won’t leak air as much as old ones which means your heating and cooling system won’t have to work as hard. You can also add window treatments to further this benefit. Window treatments can help cool your home in the summer.
For many people, the kitchen is a central feature of the home and so subtle upgrades in the kitchen can help elevate your home. There is more than one way to upgrade your cabinets. One of the simplest things you can do to upgrade your cabinets is to add new hardware. You can change the hinges and even add knobs and pulls. If you want more from your upgrade, you can opt to refinish your kitchen cabinets. You need to have sturdy kitchen cabinets with no damage and all you need to do is apply a coat of fresh paint in the color of your choice.
Subtle home upgrades can be powerful. Even though they aren’t as noticeable and don’t take as much time as other projects, they can change the look and feel of your home. Doing these subtle home upgrades one at a time periodically will, over time, continue to make your home into a place you love.
