Energy-efficient appliances will add value to your home and help you save on utility bills.
REMAKE YOUR ENTRANCE
The front door is the first thing your guests see. One of the easiest and simplest ways to improve the look of your home from the street is to make your front entrance more inviting. What you need to do is to replace the front door. Try a new solid door with modern fittings or locks, or update your existing door with new handles and paint. If the door is in a good shape, then you can add charm to the space by adding potted plants, a new house number or new exterior light.
UPDATE THE LIGHTING
Remember that good lighting can make your home look warmer and larger. Remove any old fixture and replace them with new modern, yet energy efficient models. There are so many amazing lighting designs available Chandeliers and pendants in attractive metals can change the look and feel of your living room, bedroom or kitchen more than you might think. If you like your old fixtures but want to give them a quick update, change the color of the metal or try new shades.
DECORATE THE WALLS
Any room can feel much larger and interesting if you add a few wall decors. You can make your space even larger if you use the walls from the floor to the ceiling – giving the eye a reason to move up and down.
