Are you feeling ready for some change in your home? Here are a few small tips that will create big impact in your home without breaking the bank!

Kitchen. A new backsplash will instantly improve and transform the look of your kitchen. Have some fun with your backsplash and create the aesthetic of your dreams! Choose something sleek and modern or go for a more rustic look. Whatever your style, you can drastically change the look of your kitchen by just changing the backsplash. Try also changing your cabinet hardware in order to create a fresh and polished look.

Living room. Change the look of your living room with some new window coverings and pillows. Add a pop of colour or a pattern with your window coverings. This will add value, style and ambiance to your living space. With your pillows, you can have fun with patterns, words, sayings, or all of the above! The great thing about pillows and curtains is that you can change them out with the seasons, or as your style changes.

Bedroom. Switching up your bed linens can change the mood of your bedroom drastically. If you are looking for chic, cheerful, mellow, or bohemian, there are so many options when it comes to bed linens. Add your own flare with your favourite colours or patterns. Don’t be afraid to go outside of the box a little with your linens! Add a textured blanket at the end of your bed to add comfort and style.

Bathroom. Decorative elements go a long way in bathrooms! Create a spa-like feel to your bathroom by adding baskets with rolled up blankets, bold framed mirrors, and open storage shelves. Add extra linens, and pretty soaps to spruce up the area. Add a bath mat to pull all of your accents together. Add some candles and you will notice a huge difference in the look of your bathroom. Some artwork is a great idea also. Soft pastels will create a spa-like atmosphere.
