A Few Houseplants Go a Long Way                                                   

One of the easiest ways to make a huge difference in your
home’s general feel is to pick up a few houseplants. Be it an airplant,
succulent, or small fern, a few well-placed houseplants will breathe life into
your home. Not only are houseplants tied to a whole host of benefits, from the
psychological to the general health, they can be picked up throughout the year
at very affordable prices. Houseplants also caught down on indoor air
pollution, helping to deal with volatile organic compounds like benzene,
toluene, and xylene. Better yet, most houseplants require little more than a
good watering every few days, making them the ultimate in easy and affordable
home décor improvements.

You’d Be Surprised
What Paint Can Do

It may seem obvious to some, but some fresh paint in a home
is easily one of the most affordable and effective solutions for improving your
home.  With a few gallons of paint,
you’ll be able to immediately give a lift to your tired décor. There are
definitely a few things you’ll want to keep in mind in order to make your
project as painful as possible. Prep work is always the key to a quick and easy
paint job, so make sure to fix any imperfections before you start putting on a
new coat. Also, be mindful of what colors are coming into trend, which will
help keep your home feeling vibrant for many years to come.

Do a Bit of Cabinet
Work

Like the walls in your home, a bit of attention to your
kitchen and bathroom cabinets can go a long way. The easiest start is with a
bit of the paint that you have left over from your previous project. One more
important aspect that many homeowners overlook is the hardware on their kitchen
cabinets. Many homes feature incredibly outdated drawpulls and knobs, and
replacements are readily available. Furthermore, vintage hardware can be found
at most junk shops and thrift stores, and makes for a cheap and effective
change to your home décor.

Here at Floor Coverings International, we’re committed to
finding you the perfect hardwood, carpet, or laminate flooring. In the
meantime, we hope these tips help you to add a quick dose of warmth into your
home.
