How to change your San Jose home’s look in a weekend

There can be many reasons to consider giving your San Jose home a new look. Whether you are selling it, or just want a change, you don’t need to go through a major remodel, or hire an interior designer to give your space a new life, even in just one weekend. The key is to focus on a few updates that can have a big impact. Here are updates to consider for every area of your home.

Front yard and “curb appeal”

Especially if you want to update your home to sell, you’ll need to know about what’s called curb appeal. Curb appeal is what top real estate agents call how the outside of your home looks from the street as potential buyers drive by. It is the first impression potential buyers get of your home and it can make the difference between them going inside to take a closer look, and continuing on to the next open house. You can update your curb appeal in a weekend with a couple of home improvement projects. Potted plants can be placed on either side of your front door. While it’s a little more involved, you can also give your front door a fresh coat of paint, considering red, blue, black, or a bold color to give it some extra appeal.

Living rooms and bedrooms

For updating your relaxing zones, you can give a new look to living rooms and bedrooms. You might be surprised at how a few small updates can go a long way. Some worth considering are using paint or wallpaper to create an accent wall. Replacing your linens, and adding decorative pillows can also give new energy to the space. Plants can add light and oxygen, especially by picking succulents if you want greenery without having to worry about watering the plants frequently. You may want to think about picking one accent color and using it as a central focus for the room to tie different elements together.

Spa-style bathrooms

During Covid-19, every room of the house got extra attention and some homeowners opted to create a staycation vibe, especially in bathrooms and outdoor spaces. For the bathroom, there are a few simple changes that can go a long way. You can start by decluttering and getting rid of any toiletries that are collecting dust. Then you’ll want to streamline with new towels and maybe even new hardware. The bathroom is another place where an accent wall can make a big impact.

Kitchen updates

You might think that you need to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look, but even the kitchen can get easy updates in a weekend. For an addition that is functional and adds decorative touches, you can opt for a peel and stick backsplash. You could also get more involved with tiles — but this may take more than a weekend depending on your home improvement experience. The kitchen is another great place for plants or accent walls with paint or wallpaper. Hanging up framed artwork can give your kitchen that wow factor.

Updating your home can be a fun weekend project and with a few changes you can see a big impact in any room fo the house.
