Paint.  A fresh coat of paint always makes a space seem new.  Choose a color that reflects your personality; maybe a nice light color that adds life to your room.

Area rug.  Sometimes all a room needs is a nice splash of color and pattern.  Just make sure to choose the right size to suit your room.hardware.jpg - 6.28 Kb

Accent pillows. With all the new design trends out there today, pillows are the easiest and least expensive way to update any space in your home.

Lampshades.  Many places sell lamps and shades separately today.  If you love the lamp base but need a change, just swap out the shade.  It’s an easy update for a room.

Cabinet hardware.  Another quick and easy addition for updating a cabinet is to change out the hardware.  This will add a new look for any space.

Towels.  By simply adding a few new towels in the bathroom or kitchen will add new life.  Hanging them over the stove handle or even folded in a basket on the bathroom counter will do the trick.

drapery panels.jpg - 3.78 KbDrapery panels.  Adding draperies to any room will automatically change the feel.  A pre-packaged panel from a discount store is a good starting point.

Bedding. Changing your duvets, shams or even sheets will always update your room.  Nothing like a nice sets of sheets to welcome the end of the day.

Plants. Adding a few plants and/or flowers will change the feel to any room.

Lighting. Change the light bulbs to another wattage.  Sometimes a softer light is all you need to change the feel of a room.
