By the time May rolls around, moving season is in full swing. But you don’t have to schlep your stuff in cardboard boxes to get a whole new home! Making small updates here and there can make a world of a difference. (And they can even be easier than setting up a forwarding address.) Check out our tips for seeing your home in a new light:
Refresh your color
Get your rollers ready. Changing up your wall color is a fun way to breathe new life into every room. If you’re hesitant to commit, consider using a vibrant shade for an accent wall. Or think about chalkboard or dry-erase paint. These options have gained popularity in recent years because they provide a charming way to incorporate creative spaces into your home.
Update your tech
You heard it here first: an old home can definitely learn new tricks! Thanks to ever-evolving technology, you can bring modern conveniences to even the most traditional of houses. Ease into it with C by GE’s new Smart Plug. It allows you to control gadgets and small appliances with your voice or through the accompanying app. That means you’ll never have to worry about whether or not you turned off your curling iron. Bonus tip: a carefree smile looks good in every room!
Improve your curb appeal
Don’t underestimate the power of some lush landscaping. Up your curb appeal by integrating plants and patio furniture into your outdoor space. If you’re working with an apartment or smaller plot of land, window boxes or hanging plants can make over your home. And it’s a nice way to integrate your interior style into an outdoor place.
So there you have it: three small tweaks that will have a major impact on how you see your house. The best part? There’s no moving truck required!
