Paint is the most inexpensive way to add drama to your home. I suggest painting one wall a darker tone of a neutral that is already existing in your decor scheme. For instance, if you have a grey upholstered headboard then paint the wall behind it a much deeper grey. Using a high-gloss sheen paint will add an instant touch of glamour to any space.
Wall decals and peelable wallpaper are great options to add interest to bland walls and create a focal point without ruining the existing painted walls.
Adding strip moulding to a wall can give a sense of subtle architecture to a room. Use square-edged holdings for a contemporary feel and curved for traditional.
KITCHEN AND BATH
If you own your place, then updating old countertops, sinks and faucets is a great investment to consider. Look for dark concrete-coloured counters, bronze faucets and square-shaped sinks to help give your rooms that up-to-date trendy look.
Always use licensed trade professionals to do this type of work; most condo boards have a list of preferred trades who have worked within the building and know the condo board rules when renovating.
