When people think about home upgrades, they immediately jump to ridiculously expensive ones, like tearing down the entire living room to make it more spacious.

However, this should not always be the case. There are many upgrades and installations that can give your space a new look. They don’t even have to be extremely expensive, too.

It’s also up to you whether you want to hire a professional or do small weekend projects for these renovations. For example, you can either contact a local awning company to install one for you or do a quick Google search about how to do it yourself.

The point is that small renovations can completely revamp your home’s aesthetics. Here are some examples:

1. Paint

The walls of every room in the house make the biggest impression for every one entering. They also speak volumes about the homeowner’s personality and taste.

The color of the paint can also set the whole vibe of the room. Bright red paint can raise the room’s energy levels. It’s an intense color that stirs the body’s adrenaline levels, especially at night. It is typically used to complement a room’s theme (i.e., a Chinese-themed room is usually painted red) and often used to provoke sexual energy.

White walls are usually used in modern interior design styles. It makes your space look bigger than it actually is. This color is also matched with futuristic designs because of its clean finish.

Rooms that are not painted and have its brick walls exposed are used by designers to give off an industrial design style. Meanwhile, darker tones can make the room feel more intimate.

Generally, merely repainting the walls of your house can have a significant effect if you want to see it transform.

2. Awnings

Porch awnings can boost a house’s aesthetics and practicality. They envelop a good portion of your front and backyard. Canopies also come in different materials. Some are made of wood, some are steel, others are glass, and there are also ones that are similar to cloth and tarpaulin.

Awnings have different designs and choosing one the right one can really complete the house’s look. For example, a striped and light-colored awning matched with a charming white house can add to its homey effect.

They can also provide shade for when you feel like sipping on iced tea on a warm Sunday afternoon while you watch the kids play outside.

Overall, installing an awning can have a dramatic effect on the house’s exterior. Just make sure not to choose the wrong one, so you avoid ruining the look.

3. New lighting fixtures

Installing new lighting fixtures can literally light up the room. Switch out lights that are starting to dim for new ones that are capable of bringing out the best in the room.

There are also DIY fixtures and chandeliers that can be made to look as if the room was shrouded with shadows of a different ambiance. For example, a chandelier with the right design can project leaf-like figures around a room.

Changing one small thing can make it or break it for your whole setup, so do not disregard testing things out until you find the right one.
