1. Rearrange Furniture
Rearranging the furniture is a great way to change the look of your home without spending a dime. Is your living room too cramped? Move some stuff around.
2. Rearrange Bookshelf
Just like moving your furniture around, rearranging the bookshelf can give a whole new look to the room. Think about your books as you would a landscape of rolling hills with larger books in the center.
3. New Switch Plates
A little touch of color can liven up any space. Invest a few dollars in decorative switch plates or get crafty and decoupage the plain white ones.
4. Fresh Flowers
Most fresh flowers aren’t expensive and a vase filled with them can breathe new life into any room. This is especially true throughout the winter.
Clutter in any room can make it look small and ugly. De-clutter by getting rid of stuff you no longer use. Consider investing in a few decorative boxes to hide odds and ends.
