3 Easy Ways to Freshen Up Your Home

Ready for a change but don’t have the time or budget for a remodel anytime soon?  A little paint may be just what you need.  Here’s a look at some of the projects we’ve done that really accentuate the effect a little color can have in a room.  We’re very proud of the way the colors really transform each of these spaces and hope these tips and pictures help inspire you to rejuvenate a room or two in your home.

1. Even just a little paint can go a long way.  You don’t need to spend a lot of time (or money) painting the entire room, when many times, one wall pained a deep, rich color is enough to completely transform a space from bland to warm and inviting.  Painting just one wall a deep, bold color can add great depth and character to your room, as pictured in the before/after pictures below.

2. Don’t let wood paneling scare you.  And certainly don’t decide to just live with it!  Lighter hues go a long way in transforming this basement from outdated to shabby chic!  You don’t need to deal with an outdated basement or invest in removing the wood paneling and replacing it with dry wall.  With some primer and paint, your room will be brightened and modernized with a few (okay, maybe a little more than that) strokes of the brush!

3. Color is your friend.  Using two tones in this dining room adds stylish appeal to the space.  The addition of a chair rail dividing the two colors is an excellent accessory for those looking for that extra flair of sophistication.

The same two-tone concept in this bathroom uses a chair rail and beadboard on the bottom half of the wall for a clean, bright look.  The texture of the beadboard adds to the clean style of this room along with great texture and design.
