8 Ways to Upgrade Your Home’s Aesthetic
We’re approaching the conclusion of 2022. While it’s been a year of ups and downs, reopenings and limits, let’s hope 2023 is better. To keep up with the – hopefully positive – changes of the new year, consider both simple and significant renovations you can make to improve your home. Here are eight ideas to make your home gleam in 2023:
1. Increase storage space.
Clutter is so 2019. As the last several years have driven us indoors, excessive clutter is a surefire way to create disorder to your safe area. To address this, consider adding additional storage throughout your home. Simple additions, such as floating shelves or foot stools that double as hidden storage containers, can help to harmonize your house. If you’re looking for some serious DIY projects, consider expanding your closets or installing a Dursley-style storage beneath the stairs.
2. Take Out Your Paintbrush.
Is your house too dark and gloomy for you? To lighten the room, consider painting the walls a light tone of gray, beige, or white. Or are you drowned in natural light with little wow factor? It is time to break up the monotone look with some color. Golden yellows, vibrant greens, and antique blues are among the most popular paint colors in 2022. If a blue room is a little too “Papa Smurf” for you, accent walls are very popular. Limit the colour to a single wall for a more powerful pop with less effort.
3. Boost natural light.
This one needs a little more effort than screwing in a floating shelf, but it does make a difference. If you’re serious about renovating your home, try replacing existing windows with floor-to-ceiling windows. Adding more windows, including a skylight, to your bathroom or kitchen boosts the sense of space. The rooms will appear larger, brighter, and fresher. Bonus tip: White reflects light more efficiently, so include more of it in your home decor.
4. Transform the attic.
In Vancouver, homes must not squander a single square foot of space. Convert your attic into a children’s playroom, library, home office, spare bedroom, or extra living space. While a DIY expert may feel prepared to tackle such a massive endeavor, consider hiring a professional to help with the planning. Depending on what you intend to do with your attic, you may need to install insulation, structural strength, and plumbing.
5. Crown molding.
Visitors will admire your magnificent ceilings, walls, and archways. Crown molding is an excellent technique to increase the value and aesthetics of your property. Wood, plaster, and even DIY peel and stick are material options for budget-friendly renovations.
6. Consider a ceiling makeover
A simple yet impactful home improvement. Paint your ceilings a bright color, add false beams, or decorate them with ceiling tiles to make them stand out. A contractor might make a more significant impact by remodeling your interior to include vaulted ceilings.
7. Kiss your carpet goodbye.
Simple yet effective. Swap out the carpet for a more modern option to transform your home. If you want to achieve the classic hardwood look but want something more durable and economical, engineered flooring is the way to go. Engineered hardwood, which contains 100% real wood on both the top and bottom layers, has the classic look of traditional wood flooring. However, with a plywood core, it is a stronger, more solid choice that is less prone to shrinking, swelling, and warping. It’s also much cheaper than regular wood.
8. DIY using laminate and vinyl.
Love the thought of new floors but don’t want to pay for a professional installation? Both laminate and vinyl flooring are user-friendly. You’ll be kicking yourself for not upgrading sooner. Laminate and vinyl planks can be installed with a single click, eliminating the need for cement or mortar. Making this a mess-free experience from beginning to end.
