Add open shelving

Instead of keeping your belongings hidden away, add open shelving for extra stylish storage. Use the shelves for storing everyday items or if you have enough storage already, style the shelves to bring interest into your kitchen.

Create a faux stone wall

A stone wall can instantly transform a room. Using cuttable faux stone panels and grout, you can create a beautifully realistic faux stone wall! It’s sure to give a European-style touch to any room.

Add a window seat

Create a cozy space by the window so you (or your cat) can sit in the sun. It could even double as an extra storage space. Customize this seating area to make it uniquely yours!

Remember, the goal is to make your home a reflection of your personality and lifestyle. Seemingly small changes can have a significant impact on the overall feel of your home. Updates could also enhance your home’s appeal to potential buyers when it comes time to sell. Grab your tools and have fun!
