While summer is here, now is a good time to think about what your home needs done before the winter arrives. Do you desperately need a mud room? Is your living space feeling closed in? There are many simple things one can do to improve the overall look and efficiency of a home. Here are some great ideas:

  •  Are you wondering if it is possible to create your own mudroom? Check out this DIY mudroom! Be sure and take a peek at this one too by clicking here for more ideas!

  • Looking for a way to brighten up a room without doing much more than lifting a paintbrush? Coat the inside of a lampshade with glitter to create a cool reflective light effect, which should help brighten up any room! This would be especially nice over a dining room table.

  • Thinking about creating a wall of pictures but don’t know where to start? Buy contact paper and cut it the size of each of the photos you’d like to hang on your wall. Place the contact paper on the wall to help you determine where each picture will go before you start putting holes in your wall.

  • Do you have laminate floors or unsightly vinyl flooring that you would like to replace but don’t have the time or money? Instead try painting them! Check out a tutorial for painting your old vinyl or laminate flooring to improve the overall look of the room right here

  • Repaint rooms in your home to give them a bright and fresh feeling. Choosing lighter colors will also help any room feel more open and spacious! 

  • If you have more time and a little more money, consider changing out those old and drafty windows with new replacement windows from the pros at Window Nation! Our pros can help you find just the right windows to suit your style and décor. 

Nothing makes your home cozier than a few personal touches! Anything you do on your own will definitely add your unique print to your home.
