Room-by-Room Style Refresh Tips


There are a few ways you can elevate your entryway’s first impression in just a few hours. One is to paint or wallpaper an accent wall. Since most entryways are usually on the smaller side, this shouldn’t take long to do. It will instantly change the look and feel of the space.

If you don’t feel like painting or hanging wallpaper, opt for a large-scale piece of art or a gallery wall to create the same effect. Incorporate a tall plant or colorful flowers, too, to bring some life to the space.


The best way to instantly freshen up your living room is to rearrange the furniture. Try a new set-up to create a fresh flow in the space without spending a dime. You may even be able to swap out some furniture from other rooms to create a new look, too.

Some other ideas are to add or change the accent pillows on the seating, try a new area rug, rearrange the décor on the bookshelves and surfaces, and hang some curtains.


While painting the cabinets can be done in a weekend, they are a big undertaking. For some quicker changes in the kitchen, simply switch out the hardware. You don’t have to invest a lot to get some great doorknobs and handles that will give the whole space a facelift.

Add some pretty décor such as fresh flowers, a new mat by the sink, and apothecary jars filled with things like rice, beans, noodles or other textural accents to finish it off.


The right centerpiece makes all the difference in a dining room, so switching it up periodically is a great way to freshen up this space. It doesn’t have to be extravagant to have an impact. Flowers and greenery are always a great go-to for any decorating style. A runner will help ground a long table and create a base for the centerpiece.

Keep your dining room table set is also a trick to making the space feel more welcoming and finished. We always do this in staged homes, but you can do it in your own home, as well, if you want a quick way to make the space look more appealing.


Switch out your towels to something more luxurious and wrap ribbon or twine around them for a charming touch. You don’t have to spend a lot to get towels that look luxurious. Places like HomeGoods have great options at budget-friendly prices. White is our go-to for a five-star hotel vibe.

You can also change the shower curtain and put down a new bath mat. Like the kitchen, apothecary jars filled with relevant items like loofahs, pretty hand soaps, Q-tips, and other toiletries are the perfect DIY décor to make your bathroom feel more luxurious.


In a bedroom, nothing makes an impact quite like new bedding. Changing your comforter will make you feel like you have a brand-new bed, but if you don’t want to go that far, simply lay a pretty blanket or throw across the base of the bed and add some extra accent pillows.

If you don’t have some already, hang some art above the bed. A lot of people leave this space empty but adorning it with artwork instantly makes the bed more of a focal point and makes the room feel polished off.


Change out the cushions on your seating to something fresh for the current season and add some lovely accent pillows. An area rug, some art on the walls, and outdoor curtains will make it feel like you have an entire room outdoors. Also, be sure to incorporate some colorful plants and flowers to really bring it to life.
