4 Teeny Home Upgrades That Will Make a Major Difference
You don't always have to renovate
So your bedroom (or living room) could use some sprucing, but you have neither the time nor dollars for a major renovation. Here, four super-simple tweaks that will change the entire look and feel of your home.
Switch Out Your Lightbulbs
Sure, you replaced your incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs long ago, but upgrading your bulbs to something that casts a more even tone room to room can really improve your home?s overall glow. Case in point: GE?s Reveal line filters out dull, yellow rays so that colors and patterns in your home really pop. Hello, ambiance.
Replace Your Pillow Shams
Swapping out neutral-hued pillow covers for something bold and bright can change the entire look of your living room—or bedroom—without breaking the bank. (BTW, the end-of-summer season is the perfect time to scout out sales.)
Splurge on a Nice Throw Blanket
New sofas cost an arm and a leg. But a fresh layer of texture—whether wool or faux fur—is the perfect way to show your existing couch some love.
