Quick Ways to Update Your Space on a Budget

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

I have been working overtime to get my house in shape to be sold. Call me crazy but i've been convinced to move out to the country and honestly the prospect of not having neighbours was really appealing. Having said that my house needed some work to make it more appealing. Here are the things I did that were small but made a huge difference. 

Paint- I know this one seems like a no brainer but a new coat of paint will do wonders, especially if you stick to bright neutrals. That way you are not imposing your style onto someone else they can make the space what they want. I mean look at that green, whyy, just why. 

Hardware- The kitchen has oak cabinets, and had wooden handles that made it look so dated. We bought all new door handles and voila the kitchen looks more modern. 

Accessories- New accessories can make any space look more modern and up to date, even if what you love is something retro it can still make your space look great. I got some simple pieces from Home Sense, a soap dispenser, glass container and a toothbrush holder. Although, I don't use it as a toothbrush holder but rather for my make up brushes.  

Shower Curtain- I know this one might seem like a no brainer but, I never noticed the shower curtain in my bathroom. I just moved in with my husband and whatever he had was fine with me. Now that I am selling the house I looked around and thought omg is there a bus on that curtain that has to go. So out it went and in came this gorgeous grey and white textured curtain. It's so pretty I love it. Go look in your bathroom does the curtain bring you joy, if it doesn't replace it.
