Increasing your home’s attractiveness and value doesn’t need to be expensive or massive. Subtle things like decluttering or improving natural lighting can have positive dramatic effects.
Here are six easy DIY tips to make your home more attractive.
Clean Your Home Up
Here Are Easy DIY Tips To Ensure You Have A Clean House:
- Unclog drains using baking soda. It works like magic. Just pour half a cup of baking soda into the unclogged drain, then add a similar quantity of vinegar. Follow it up with boiling water after about 10 minutes. And voila! It’s as clean as a whistle.
- Make your bed immediately when you wake up. Make it a habit to fix your bed every morning. The bed is the central point of the bedroom.
- Clean the kitchen after every meal. Mealtime over? It’s the perfect time to do the dishes. Doing this regularly will help keep your kitchen neat and tidy.
- Use a basket for dirty clothes. If you find a basket that also doubles as a washroom décor, you have a winner. A laundry basket will help avoid stacking dirty clothes on the bed or chair.
- Return things after using them. All things have their places.
Beautify Your Landscape
- Use gravel as a cheap and chic garden accent.
- Use ornamental grass for a stylish and modern yard. Types of grasses you can use include Flax, Feather Reedgrass, Blue Oatgrass, and Zoysia.
- Plant perennials. Modern perennials include Kangaroo Paw, Coneflower, Buddleia, Baptisia, Astilbe, and Allium and make your garden bloom all year round.
- Add planters to your inexpensive landscape ideas. You can use old pallets, tires, barrels, or wine crates.
- Ask friends for cuttings. Plants like butterfly bush grow very well from clippings.
- Make geometric patterns with ground cover and pavers.
Declutter Your Home
- Start with what you see. It can seem overwhelming at first. But taking small steps will eventually create a positive snowball effect.
- Make three piles. Sort the clutter in terms of trash, what to give away, and what to keep.
- Identify its utilitarian value. Is it useful, attractive, or simply nostalgic?
- Identify the emotional attachment to each item. There’re so many emotions connected to our stuff we don’t consider. Does it may you feel happy or grateful? Does it spark a sense of obligation?
- Organize what is left.
Increase The Amount Of Natural Light In Your Home
Here’s how to increase your home’s natural light:
- Move furniture. Let the light shine in by moving your furniture at least a few feet away from any windows.
- Use light colors for paint. Light colors boost the natural light in the room. Paint your walls with eggshell blue, cream or gray.
- Use mirrors. The more mirrors you have in your room, the light. You could also buy furniture with mirrored accents or use glass panels.
- Choose the right shades. Opt for shades that give you better control of the amount of light that comes in. Steer clear of Roman shades.
Add Accents To Give It Personality
Adding subtle details can go a long way in making your home attractive. Carefully observe each room and identify whether there’s anything that can be improved. Repainting, for instance, with neutral colors could accentuate the space well.
Adding crown molding can also help your home look more appealing.
Rearrange The Bookshelf
Reorganizing the bookshelf will easily make an entire room look styled and polished.
