When it comes to your home, there’s always something to improve on to make it even more “homey.” And while a renovating your entire space might seem like a good way to start fresh, it isn’t exactly the most ideal thing to do, especially when the budget is tight. Here are a few home improvement suggestions you can easily do to create a more stylish living space for yourself.
Tip #1: Change your hardware
Changing the knobs and handles on your drawers and cabinets is one easy way to spice things up and add character to your living space.

Tip #2: Dress up your walls
Repainting or having wallpaper installed can take days and is also costly. Easy-to-apply temporary wallpapers add flair to your home without asking too much of a commitment from you. Another easy way to mask a boring beige wall is by hanging art, and no, you don’t need to blow a fortune on it. Some local home stores carry interesting prints that have already been framed, ready to be installed on your wall.

Tip #3: Accessorize
Throw away that plastic soap dish you bought from the supermarket and swap it for a vintage dish fished out of the flea market. People notice the smallest details so it would be wise for you to take note of the smallest things that add to the character of your house.

Tip #4: Get new sheets
Sleep better with fresh linens that feel great to touch. Trust us, you’ll never wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Or rather, you’ll never want to get out of it.

Tip #5: Dress up with textiles
Throw pillows and rugs in different colors or patterns are an easy way to vamp up your space. Keep an eye out for interesting textures that add personality.
