3 Accessories That Will Instantly Update Your Room
October 21, 2016
Today I’m sharing three interior updates with instant gratification. Oftentimes homeowners become blind to these three accessories. It’s almost as if they don’t even see them anymore. Updating these items can really help improve the look of your room.
#1: Dying Plants
Greenery is one of the most inexpensive ways to add color and texture to a room. Healthy plants can breath new life into any room. If you like faux plants, choose a product as close to nature as you can get.
I always check the plant sales section at Lowe’s. Oftentimes, the store needs to reduce prices to make room for a new shipment. This plant was only $5. It’s healthy and beautiful. I have found plants for as low as $0.50. They are some of the healthiest plants I’ve ever owned.
#2. Old Lamps/Lamp Shades
Lighting is so important in a room. Over time, lamp shades get dusty and yellowed. Even just replacing the lamp shade can elevate the look and feel of your room.
#3. Dated, Miss Matched Picture Frames
There’s nothing wrong with personalizing a home with photos of loved ones. But stuffing as many dated and miss matched frames as possible on a book case or console table, makes the room feel “stuffy” and outdated. An inexpensive way to upcycle and update old frames is to spray paint them in similar color tones. It’s nice if the frames vary in size and thickness. Also, group them in odd numbers.
A great way to display pictures is with photo ledges or wall galleries. This look is clean, uncluttered, and modern.
