1. Add a Little Outside Touch

Adding some plants or flowers to your indoor space can help liven it up. In addition to brightening up a room, they also cleanse the air in your home. Try placing some plants in a planter and place a couple of them throughout your house. If you’re worried about killing your plants, opt for plants that require little to no maintenance. you can also use faux plants. Our recommendation for faux plants is that you consider the quality. These will last forever, so make sure they look as realistic as possible.

2. Fresh Coat of Paint

Painting your home can update your space more drastically than most DIY home improvement projects. If you don’t want to paint your entire room, you can add an accent wall to elevate the room. Feeling a little more rebellious? Add a pop of color to your celling to give it a more dramatic effect. Whether you paint your entire room, an accent wall, or the ceiling, these simple updates can transform any room.

3. Install New Cabinet Hardware

Freshen up your kitchen or bathroom by switching out the cabinetry hardware. When purchasing hardware, you should make sure to measure out the hole spacing on your cabinets to ensure your new hardware will fit properly. Make sure to choose a style that will go with your current kitchen or bathroom style. You may love the change so much you might consider doing the same thing to your dressers to give it a personality of its own.

4. Add a Mirror to the Wall

By adding a mirror to a dark room, it will appear more spacious and brighter. Before you look for new mirrors that can be expensive try finding some used mirrors from a secondhand store to help save you money. Once you have your mirrors start placing them in the areas of your home where you need to brighten up or make a room seem larger.
