A new year means new changes! Maybe you’ll be making a move this year, or maybe you’ll want to redo your space – but what happens if you want to make another change down the road? Whether you’re a renter with changing roommates or have a kid with changing tastes, with these tips, you’ll be able to refresh your home with a mind to making easy changes whenever you need to.
1. Install Easy to Change Wallpaper
Wallpaper used to be a slog, but several brands now offer the convenience of peel and stick wallpapers that you can remove with ease. Take the opportunity to add funky patterns on an accent wall, and why not mix and match if you really want something different? But if the zebra stripes clash with the polka-dots, peel away for easy removal with no permanent damage to your walls.
2. Get a Moveable Bar Cart
The best part about a movable bar cart is how easy it is to slot this useful storage item into any corner of your home when you need it. You could go from having a convenient bookshelf in your bedroom, to a craft caddy for kids, to an actual moving bar when guests are over. A reliable bar cart is there wherever and whenever you need it.
3. Reversible Duvet Covers
Your bed is the centrepiece of your bedroom, so switch up its look with a reversible duvet cover! Whether you feel like a pattern one week or a solid neutral the next, flipping the duvet is an easy way to change the focal point on your room to match your style at a moment’s notice.
4. Display Your Photos on a Ledge
If you love displaying your pictures and are constantly taking new ones, skip the hassle of frames, and consider putting up a couple of photo ledges. These shallow shelves allow you to put up as many pictures as the space allows, switch them out whenever you’d like, and accent your ledge with small succulents and other décor. Plus, the shelf could be a nice pop of colour on an otherwise neutral wall.
5. Chalk Wall Decals
The best way to keep kids from doing permanent damage to the walls, consider chalk wall decal stickers that can be as large or as small as you like. Whether you want to cover an accent wall in a kids room and let them go wild or just have a panel in your kitchen to keep a grocery list, these pieces can be utilitarian or creative, depending on what you need for your space. The best part is that they’re removable if you’re ever tired of getting chalk dust everywhere.
