Easy Ideas for Freshening Up Your Home

People always say, “New year, new home” but it’s never too late to remodel. Now that it’s summer, you’re probably entertaining more often—and though you may be spending a lot of time outside, visitors will see the inside of your home. Maybe a room or two could use some TLC.

If you know you need to spruce up your home but are short on ideas, keep reading! Houzz offers plenty of tips on how to freshen up rooms in your home. Wentworth is proud to be featured in the Ideabook “Room Doctor: 10 Things to Try When Your Room Needs a Little Something.”

Family Room Remodel in Chevy Chase, MD

The project featured in the above Ideabook is a family room remodel in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The new space features a custom-built media center, upholstered furniture, and clear table (which is recommended in the Ideabook to use for visual decluttering purposes in rooms that feel cramped and overwhelming).

Other room enhancement tips from the Ideabook that the Wentworth team has incorporated in some of our remodels include:

  • Making one big piece of art or other element (like a fireplace, built-in, etc.) the focal point if wall décor feels cluttered or unfocused
  • Using a large mirror if a room feels small and cramped
  • Adding shiny or metallic (copper, silver, gold, brass or bronze) accents if a room looks too casual or incomplete
