Get a pretty new home by making simple changes

Everybody needs something pretty in their life, and for most of you, something pretty will now be related to your home. I bet you have thought many times of how weird you are for getting excited over new things for your home, and how it shows you’re getting old because you don’t get excited over things like going out anymore. We all think it, and we all go through this process 😊 But rather than calling it a reflection of your age, I think it’s better to call it a reflection of your changes in taste.

I think that everyone should get excited by the changes that can be made in the home, because when you feel like you’ve been upset with the way it is for a while now, even the smallest of things that make it a ton better can feel amazing! So, I am going to talk to you about some of the simple changes you can make, that really will make your home* look like new!

Think about what people see first

First impressions are everything in life, and you have to think about what you think of people when you first see them. Now, think about what you think of peoples home when you first see them. It gives you a feel for what the inside of the home is going to look like, and people will think the same about yours. You could think about starting to look into things such as the façade of your house, the design and color of your doors or changing to fiberglass and composite windows*, which would greatly improve the look of the outside of your home.

Sometimes it’s easy for it to look deteriorated when your old windows are flaking with paint outside, or you can just see that they look really weathered. You could then think about making the front of your home look even more pretty with things such as outdoor ornaments. A themed front can lead onto a themed back…

Think what people see last

Last impressions definitely do count as well, and we just know that if there’s one thing that people are going to judge about your home, it’s your garden or terrace. If someone has a really nice garden, it’s something that just sticks in your mind. You can’t help but think about how you would put parts of it in your own garden, or you wish you could just have a garden like it. So, to make it prettier, you might have to first do a big overhaul. Think about getting your grass in a great condition first, with it being a beautiful bright green and the perfect length. Then think about the colors you can put into your garden, both through plants and through ornaments. I really do think it’s a great way starting base for you!

Think about everything in between

If you want to think about everything in between, then upcycling* is what you should be thinking of. You can easily turn pretty much everything in your home that’s a bit older and worn out, into something beautiful and brand new. Simple little changes to the decor and accessories you have in your home can also make it look brand new again!

    I totally agree with this. I love simple home decor and my favorite is diy. It’s refreshing and inspiring. My goal in home decor is that people feel like it’s cozy. and I’ve been told a lot that it is. What people see and the feeling they get in your home is important.

      Renew our old home accesories or even renew flea market products are a good way to decorate our homes.

    Upcycling is such a good idea. I love the idea of taking something I already own and repurposing it.

    I love the idea of up-cycling. I’m also going to have to ask my friends (the really honest ones) what type of first and last impression my home makes. Thanks for the article.
