Ways to Upgrade Your Home Decor

As time goes by and home decor trends evolve, you will feel the need to upgrade your house. There are two ways to do this: you can remodel the entire house or just add small elements which dramatically change how your home looks. Here are these small touches which can enhance the look of your home style.

Add recessed lighting

Changing your old light bulbs with recessed lighting is one way to upgrade the look of your house. The major benefit of these systems is the lack of cords. This will remove part of the clutter from your house and will provide a modern look to every room. Recessed lighting works well with most home styles and can be used to highlight a specific part of the house or an element, like a painting, for example.

Invest in a rug

A rug can enhance the look of any room and it can be placed anywhere, from the dining room or bedroom to the living room. Research vintage oriental rugs and look for the size, style and shape you need. The rug can become the centerpiece of the room or it can be used to tie together the elements from a room. A vintage rug adds warmth to every house and can be used to liven up a minimalist design or soften a room where there are many sharp, straight lines.

As rugs have very specific textures, it can be used to accentuate other textures in the room or to make certain furniture elements stand out.

Even out the furniture legs

One of the most common problems of a room is uneven furniture legs. They cause the furniture to be unstable and can easily break the entire look of the room. The good part is uneven legs can be easily fixed. All you have to do is place the furniture on a flat surface and adjust the legs. If they can’t be adjusted, you might want to replace them with new ones that can be adjusted.

New wall paint

New wall paint gives any room a new look, so it can quickly boost the atmosphere. Soft colors create a soothing space, while brighter, straightforward colors can be used to bring the space to life, energize it. You can also choose one accent wall and paint it in a different shade or apply a pattern on it.

Crown molding

Installing crown molding is another way to boost your home design and make it look more modern. It also makes the room appear higher and larger, by drawing attention to the ceiling. Crown moldings fit best in traditional homes, but they can be adjusted by a professional to fit a more modern-looking room. If you have a minimal home design, crown moldings might not be what you are looking for. The only thing you need to be careful about is deciding if you are going to hire a professional to install the crowd molding or you are going to DIY, as the latter might not give you the best results, if you’ve never done this before.
