1. Fix what’s broken
You don’t want to live in a home that has broken and dysfunctional components. Maybe the light bulbs have blown out, the faucets are leaky, your door frames are broken, the gate hinges are squeaky or the appliances don’t really function like they should. Mend and repair the things that are broken and replace the things that cannot be fixed. Ask your landlord to look into the matter, and if you can do it yourself, even better!
2. Clean up time
Sometimes all you need to make your home dazzle is to give it a decent cleaning. Dusting, mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping (or raking leaves) are simple ways to keep the interiors and exterior of your home from looking drab and dull. Remember regular cleaning will cost you next to nothing. Plus, you don’t have to do it all on your own. Get the whole family to pitch in. Make the process fun too, like a game where you score points. This way the kids won’t see it as a chore.
3. Paint the place
If it’s been years since you painted the place, there’s no harm in changing things by adding new coats of paint. But if the paint on your walls is chipping and peeling off or simply looks unappealing, don’t hold back go ahead and paint away! Fresh paint makes a world of difference; it adds brightness to a room and makes it look clean and neat. It doesn’t have to be the entire house, you can just paint one wall to create an emphasis or distract people from gazing at the not-so-appealing aspects of the room.
4. Add some greenery
There’s nothing more appealing to the eye than lovely thriving greenery! You can improve the appearance of your home by adding new plants to your yard or place potted specimens on your deck or patio. Potted plants look amazing inside the house too. Why stop there? You can even get a moss canvas to decorate your walls. It requires zero maintenance and looks absolutely spectacular on bare walls.
It’s usually the simplest of things that make our homes feel and look homey. And with a busy schedule it’s quite easy to forget about these basic aspects!
