5 Creative Ways To Upgrade Your Home Style

June 30, 2014 in All Posts, Home, Sponsored Posts

We’ve been in our new house for about half a year now, but after unpacking our boxes and getting our 1950’s Rancher fixed up, we haven’t really begun to make the house our home. Part of the reason is that we will be remodeling eventually, so making a big investment on statement pieces or committing to particular look right now doesn’t make sense. Luckily, we’ve discovered a few easy, low-commitment ways to refresh our family’s home style that we’re excited to share with you.

Five Simple Ways to Kick Up Your Home Style

1. Repurpose Kids’ Art

All it takes is a frame, a nail and a hammer, and you can turn the paint-splattered masterpieces your child brings home into beautiful, modern wall art. Change the art whenever you want a new look.

2. Shop Wayfair Daily Sales

You probably already know and use daily sales sites and get e-mails with flash bargains from shoe, clothing and luxury boutiques, but being able to snap up stylish designs for my home at up to 70 percent off through Wayfair Daily Sales was something totally new to me.

I often score my interior design pieces and furniture bargains in real life at the store, but as a working mom (yes, I’m back in the saddle again) being able to shop online just makes life so much easier.

What I love about the Wayfair Daily Sales is that I get fresh inspiration delivered daily to my inbox and I can instantly upgrade our home.

3. Embrace the Power of Paint

A coat of paint does wonders to walls, lamps, desks, chairs, you name it. Just spray or brush on your favorite color to bring new life to an old, tired piece that may have been heading to the curb. Centsational Girl has fantastic tips on how to spray paint furniture.

4. Invest in Pillows

Pillows are such a great way to change things up without completely redoing a room. You can add texture, depth, color and layers to a room with these smart, low-commitment accessories.

5. Change Your Perspective

Sometimes forcing a look or a piece of furniture because you think there’s only one option can ruin the entire flow of a space. Or maybe you’re using an alcove as a breakfast nook, when really it should be a play area or an office. Break the rules every now and then to redefine how you see a space and the way you think it should be furnished.

We’re doing just that with one of our Wayfair Daily Sales purchases and turning what we thought would be a coat closet into something much more exciting. Stay tuned!
