Updating your home can be one of the most exciting things that you do to your humble home. There are lots of basic renovations and updates that you can do that will add a completely new look and feel to your home. A fresh coat of paint and some new window treatments can make a room seem like an entirely different room. After you have those things done you can redecorate with some throw blankets and decorative pillows. A once warm toned room can become a cool toned room with little effort.

Switching out the paint and window treatments is one of the most cost effective and simple design refreshments that you can do to your home. Another fun way to update is to update your cabinets, closets and doors throughout the house. If you have bought a dated home, you may have basic builder stock doors throughout your home. Six panel doors and sliding barn doors are some of the hottest trends when it comes to new doors. You can paint your existing kitchen cabinets and add some new hardware to keep a constant flow of comfort, elegance and design throughout your home. Updating your closet will also make you feel more organized and refreshed. If you do not know how to do these updates you can find a local company that performs interior door installation. There are many home renovation companies that have carpenters on hand that can install a quality door.

Closets have many options when it comes to updates. If you have a boring coat closet at the front of your home with sliding doors you actually have a trendy option staring, you in the face. You can remove the closet doors and remove all hanging racks. Once your closet is an empty space you will fill any holes left from shelves or rods. Sand down the patched spots and then apply a fresh layer of paint. Update basic light bulb lighting and install a trendy but size appropriate light fixture. Install some hooks securely to the back wall of your closet and install a bench. If you do not know how to build one there are many premade options. Another great option is a storage chest. You can also dress up this space with a fashionable key hook system and a shelf above the coat hooks. You have just created a coat nook near your front door. This has become a comfortable space where you and your guests can sit, take off shoes, securely store shoes, place purses and other bags on the shelf and hang the coats on the hooks. Removing the doors and installing fresh lighting will create an open space that will brighten up a once dismal entry way.

You can update many closets in the house with this same concept. Start from a blank slate and work forward with the appropriate storage system for each room. Updating dated doors, closets and cabinets along with the paint and window treatments will give your home a fresh and comfortable look.
