    Does your house need a new look? Do you think changing the look will take too much time or money? Using small changes can often have a big effect.

    Here are some low-effort and low-cost ideas that can quickly transform your space:

    1. Switch out lampshades and/or finials or change a chandelier

    2. Reframe or rearrange artwork

    3. Have favorite photos printed on canvas and hang them front and center

    4. Swap throws and/or pillows

    5. Change a rug or pull it up to expose hardwood or tile floors

    6. Take out "high-hat" light in living room for a more ambient atmosphere

    7. Give your bookcase a makeover

    8. Clear the clutter

    9. Switch out bar stools

    10. Change drawer knobs and/or cabinet handles

    11. Put new towels and/or mats in the bathroom

    12. Add a hanging pot holder in the kitchen

    13. Sew a fabric band to bottom of shower curtain

    14. Change the draperies

    15. Add flowers or plants

    16. Add accessories like vases, sculptures, candles or photos

    17. Lean your artwork rather than hanging it for a way to easily move it later

    18. Change slipcovers

    19. Use sisal rugs, which are inexpensive and in style

    20. Put a decorative plate or bowl in the corners of kitchen counters (where tile meets wall) to increase flow and tie a space together
