Have you been living in your home for quite some time now? If you’ve had the same décor and layout for the past five years, then maybe it's time to consider a mini-makeover. Here are a few ideas that you can try:

Create a space-enhancing pass-through

If you feel that your space feels a bit crowded, you may opt to have a space-enhancing pass-through from the kitchen to the dining room to make the area more efficient.

To separate the different areas at home, you may also use bookshelves or curtains.

 Add more details

If you feel like your home is too plain, you may opt to add more details that reflect your personality. Consider adding quirky decor and unexpected pieces. You may also liven up the kitchen using special backsplashes and stylish drawer pulls.

You don't necessarily have to buy new decor pieces to be able to give your home a new look. Experiment by mixing and matching a few items and see if the end result goes well with your home's overall style. Work with decor pieces in varying heights, play with colors and proportion, and consider layering.
