Old Home Hacks to Keep Your Home in Top Shape

Want to keep your home in all its (former) glory? Of course, all of us want to make our home look eternally fab, that’s why we strive so hard to change it that it seems like we’re don’t stop moving things around, replacing stuff and repainting our walls. Actually, there is no need to start a radical repair or make a dramatic rearrangement. To create the ideal interior, you just need to know a few simple tricks.

Bring on the mirrors! Big mirrors fixed on walls, closet doors, and other areas can refresh the interior and visually expand small rooms. This is why tiny condominium rooms look big – that’s the mirrors at play.

Paint doors black. For this, you just need a bucket of paint and a full afternoon. This simple upgrade creates a luxe effect on your home. If you have leftover paint, you could add black walls too! Bring back the classic black! Don’t forget to buff uneven wood before painting.

Update light fixtures. Ditch the lighting fixtures in your home with that of modern ones. A new and chic lighting will not only add a fresh look to your room but also serve as a great way to add a tonal effect that can provide comfort and relaxation to everyone.

Add layer accents. Layer makes any room go from meh to wow! Whether you do it with throw pillows, rugs or blankets, layering combines colors and textures, which makes any space look new and was professionally decorated.

Paint old vinyl flooring. Outdated vinyl tile floor can become unsightly in the long run. This might seem like a stretch, but if your home sports old vinyl floor that you want to refresh, painting is undeniably a cheap update.

This has been tried by many TV shows during home improvement and it transformed rooms economically. You will need elbow grease mainly for scrubbing the floor, sanding and repairing broken or chipped spots. If you have extra time, this will improve the look and feel of any room.

Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. On 9/11/16 Becky smoked her last cigarette which also was the same day as her last cup of coffee, she mourns the latter greatly. Entering into their 'empty nest' stage in life, Becky, and her husband Roger are learning to live with their youngest away at school more than not. Becky enjoys way too many TV programs but her favorites are normally criminal based or something to make her laugh. Keep an eye out because 2017 is going to be her year!
