Turn Your House Into A Home (Without Major Renovations!)

Everyone aspires to have their dream home, but if you’re living in a modest sized family home, the idea of creating a bigger and beautiful living space can seem just that – a dream. But did you know that you don’t have to get the builders in to give your home a style injection or the feel of a complete revamp? 

It’s true! Here we’ve gathered a few hints and tips that can give your home – and your mood a boost!

Update your doors

The old, tired and battered doors that separate the rooms in your home can make a room feel drab before you’ve even stepped into it! Fresh, sleek and stylish doors can really give your home a new sense of flair and freshness, companies like can provide some inspiration!

Add some new lighting

Proper lighting can truly bring a room to life. A poorly lit room looks small, dark and cramped, while a brightly lit room appears open, airy and welcoming. There are numerous ways to brighten up your home with lights. Some of the easier methods are as simple as buying table lamps and floor lamps for your home.

Strategically place a couple tall floor lamps in dark corners and watch your room come alive. Layer this lighting with lamps on side tables, making the room feel welcoming and cosy. Then, if you want to get adventurous, you can replace all those out-dated ceiling fixtures with the stunning modern masterpieces that are available on the market.


Nothing dates your kitchen and bathrooms more than old-fashioned, worn and dirty handle pulls and knobs. There is no excuse not to update all your cabinet and door handles when it is really so simple to do, and there are so many ways to update your cabinetry.

There are numerous finishes to choose from too such as bronze, brushed nickel, aged copper, and shiny stainless.

Spruce up your bathroom

Bathrooms get dirty and dingy quite quickly. Begin a bathroom overhaul with a thorough cleaning. Yes, not a lot of fun, but the shiny result will give you new motivation to spruce-up the rest of the bathroom

Once the room is clean, look to the outdated knobs, light fixtures, vanity, faucets, and shower curtains. By simply changing out one or two of the most outdated items, you can make your bathroom look modern and new. A coat of paint can really go far in a bathroom, as well.

If in doubt – just clean and paint!

Does this list have you exhausted? Is your home overwhelming you? Maybe you should just start by simply cleaning-up your main living space. A deep-clean can enhance our mood and make our home more liveable (and more importantly inspire us to do more). A clean coat of paint can take a room from drab to fab. Consider adding a punch of colour on an accent wall, or just touch up your trim with a clean coat of white paint.
