The New Year is upon us, and for many, that means changes are coming in one way or another. We thought we'd help think of small ways to update your living space that won't break the bank!

Pop some color on the walls

A surefire way to give your house a new look is with a fresh coat of paint! Now is the time to get creative with bold colors or funky accent walls. Berry colored walls are very in this year...think Blueberry, Raspberry, Cranberry! This trend is very versatile and adds some pizzazz to your space! 

If you want a more dramatic change, consider adding some texture to the wall. Wallpaper has come a long way now and there are some seriously fantastic options out there! How about creating your own exposed brick wall? The options are endless for your blank canvas!

Kitchen Facelift

Don’t have the budget for new cabinets? Give them a new look with some paint! It gives the kitchen a fresh look and adds life to the cabinets so you can delay that big kitchen reno a few more years! 

Another way to liven things up is to add a new backsplash! There are many DIY options at your local home improvement store to choose from. 

If you have a little money to play with, consider splurging on new stainless steel appliances. They’ll really spruce up your kitchen!

Storage Spaces

If your basement or garage is overcrowded and you’re ready to tackle some organization, add shelving and peg boards to reduce the clutter on the floor. You’ll be able to hang tools on hooks and stack storage bins nicely on your new shelves. If you’re feeling really ambitious, clean out the space entirely and use an epoxy paint on the floors which will not only make the space look much nicer, but also is extremely durable and offers a protective layer against moisture damage! 

Add a little more YOU to your home and you’re happy place will feel a little more happier in 2018! If you’re looking for a complete change and are looking for a new home, give the Mark Lesses Group a call at 617-974-9275.
