4 Simple Ways to Update Your Home Without Breaking the Bank {+ A Deal from Lock & Hinge}

** This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lock & Hinge. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

With the new year, there's certainly a feeling of NEW in the air! We want a new look, a new wardrobe... even a new home. But let's get honest... while the look and clothes might be a little easier to come by, a new home? Well, that's not something most of us can do on a whim, am I right?

Still, that doesn't mean we cannot make our existing home feel like new, right? Today, I'm sharing some simple ideas that can help bring new life to your home--- without a complete renovation required:

  • Paint. One super quick and simple way to change the look of your home is to do some painting! Paint the walls a fresh new color, give the cabinets a face lift with some simple paint--- even paint your front door for some more curb appeal. Old furniture that just doesn't match the look you now want? Paint it. The possibilities are endless.
  • Change the linens. It truly is amazing to me how much difference things like curtains can have on a room. And while buying a new couch when the mood strikes may not be an option, some new pillow (or covers) can bring in new life and new colors. You can also throw in some pretty throws for texture and warmth! Super easy, and if you look for deals, can be pretty reasonable too. 
  • Move furniture. I am constantly rearranging furniture in my house because it truly is another great way to change the feel of a room using what you have on hand. Sometimes I'll mix up pieces from one room to another, other times I'll just experiment with the layout with what's already there. Either way it keeps things fresh and fun. 
  • Look at the small details. Be honest, when is the last time you gave much thought to little details throughout your home--- like the switch plates, doorknobs, vent covers, even the handles on your cabinets? These might be small details but can have a HUGE impact on the overall look and feel of your home. Switching the handles on your cabinets can completely change the look---with or without fresh paint. Switch plates and vent covers may not be something we look at often, but if you gave them a fresh new look it can take the whole room to another level--- it gives it a look and feel that every last detail was taken into consideration. Even the simple detail of a door knocker or an updated house number can add great curb appeal to your home too! Take a look at these small details around your home and consider changing some out too!
