Whether it’s the new year or a new season, just about any home can use a thorough yet easy to pull off refresh to help you make the most of your space and to keep you inspired. With that in mind we turned to the expert interior designers at Décor Aid for their savvy approaches to help you improve your every day with essential home improvement ideas that you can pull off with confidence, and ease – without having to spend a small fortune at that.

REFRESH YOUR HOME’S ENERGY

Start the décor refresh process by walking from room to room throughout your home and think about how you feel as you pass through, what catches your eye, and what could use an improvement. This will help you home in on what you feel emotionally so you can begin to chart an effective course of action.

UPDATE HARDWARE 

Affordable and easy enough for just about anyone to install, updating drawer and cabinet pulls can make your kitchen and bathroom feel anew within minutes at that. The same can be said for just about any piece of furniture that boasts drawer or cabinet pulls.

ENERGIZE TABLETOP AND SHELF DÉCOR 

An instant home styling trick that won’t cost a cent is to redo table top and shelf arrangements by switching things out for a quick update. By doing so, it’ll help the eye concentrate on accessories in a different way.

RECONFIGURE YOUR DAILY ROUTINE 

Whether you’re a morning person or not, think about your daily routine and set aside even just a few minutes to tackle everyday chores like making your bed or putting clothes away. This way, you’ll always come back to a tidy home instead of saving it all for later.

MOVE PIECES AROUND  

Looking at the same furniture placement and decorative layouts year after year can be boring and uninspiring to boot. To remedy this with ease, explore fresh takes on what you already have and move pieces from room to room to give everything a new life. After all, you might just be surprised at how much better, say that armchair, may look in your study instead of your den.

SURVEY WHAT YOU NEED AND WHAT TO TOSS 

Take a quick walk through your home and survey what you no longer need or have room for to help you declutter and tidy up while making more space for what you justifiably need.

ADD MORE STORAGE SOLUTIONS 

With homeowners across the country breaking storage unit rental records, it only makes sense to consider adding more savvy storage solutions in your own home. From trundle beds to genius concealed storage solutions, there’s something to make just about every home feel all the more organized.

GO MODULAR 

If you’re in need of extra space to thoughtfully display cherished collectibles, art, and books, but are short on square footage, modular shelving can instantly help clear floor and surface space while stylishly displaying your treasures while keeping everything organized.

REFRESH OR SWAP OUT PILLOWS 

Often neglected, if you’re not laundering your pillows bi-annually, Décor Aid interior designers suggest replacing them every few years. This way you’ll free your bedding from dust mites and allergens while getting a better night’s sleep.

ADD EASY TO MANAGE PLANTS 

Whether you’ve got a green thumb or not, plants are essential for adding a sense of comfort and the organic in any room. And since there are scores of plants that don’t require much light and take little maintenance, there’s no reason to not add a few in every room in your home. Plus, they’ll help to purify the air from toxins and odors.
