HELPFUL INFORMATION FROM XCELLENCE INSPECTION SERVICES
After spending more time than normal in our houses this past year, a home décor refresh can be both tempting and daunting. Four simple and quick DIY solutions — such as a quick paint swap or small appliance changes — can transform a space without a full renovation cost and time commitment.
- Refresh a space with new paint
Replace cold, bright colors with warm greys, whites, and beiges that complement the surrounding space.
Textured paint finishes like metallic stripes, sandstone, mixed-shaped rectangles, or brushed suede can draw the eye to various focal points of a room for added flair. A fresh coat of paint on a trim or accent wall can transform a dated space into a new living area.
- Accessorize with DIY materials
Decorating a space does not have to be dependent on finding statement furniture to fill a room. Small accent pieces can work together for a cohesive look. An empty wall provides a blank canvas to tell a story and an opportunity to showcase one’s personality. Design a gallery wall that features personal photography or DIY art, hung in different frames and sizes to add dimension.
Or, install refurbished wood shelves to offer a heightened holding place for plants to flourish. Create a uniform look with matching pots, or mix it up with a combination of clay, baskets, and ceramics.
- Update fixtures
The kitchen remains the heart of all homes and thus sustains the most wear and tear. Simple do-it-yourself upgrades ensure space can withstand time while adapting to various culinary needs. Like those within the Peerless® Precept® Kitchen Collection, installing new fixtures can turn a humdrum area into a modern space filled with style and functionality.
Replace a rundown kitchen faucet with an affordable, on-trend Precept Commercial Kitchen Faucet by Peerless®. The updated design and pull-down sprayer offer beauty and efficiency, while POWERinse™ technology delivers an extra blast of cleaning power. This simple swap customizes the kitchen to work best for the needs of a home without sacrificing style.
- Creating a spa at home
Establishing a sanctuary in the home can be as easy as remodeling the bath space to feel like an at-home spa. Introducing the Peerless® Precept® Slide Bar with Hand Shower into an existing shower system provides homeowners with the ability to use a showerhead and hand shower simultaneously — proving that a luxurious shower experience is possible at an affordable cost.
Installing soft lightings, such as a dimmer switch or updated lighting fixtures, sets a spa-like ambiance. Accessories like a fluffy bath mat, your favorite candle, and luscious plant-like eucalyptus help to achieve a DIY, serene bath.
Giving new life to space doesn’t have to include costly renovations or large-time investments. A fresh coat of paint or the addition of trendy accessories can make the old feel new again. – (BPT)
