Before you start on any home makeover, though, it’s important to keep a few things in mind.
Scroll down for five dos and don’ts of updating your space and to shop all the necessary pieces from Design Within Reach.
An easy way to make a room feel new again is by painting an accent wall in a bold color. This will instantly add depth and make your furniture pop even more.
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, so the less clutter you have, the more likely you’ll be able to unwind at the end of the day. Keep your décor to a minimum, and invest in a bed frame that doubles as a storage unit to help simplify your space.
Incorporate a variety of textures into each room, from a wool couch and soft pillows to a cowhide rug. Your home will instantly feel cozier and more welcoming.
To create more open space, opt for furniture with sleek lines that have less visual weight. Avoid solid, bulkier pieces that can make a room feel more closed off.
Even if the majority of your place is on the neutral side, don’t rule out adding color. A simple pop can be the key to making even the smallest of nooks feel more welcoming.
