Can you smell the sweet aroma of pumpkin spice, apple orchards and dying leaves filling the air? That’s the scent of Autumn fast approaching and 2018 slowly giving up. As we enter the home stretch of the year with school and holidays, it’s easy to get wrapped up in our lives outside of our homes and apartments leaving our living space neglected and uninspired. That can all be fixed with a little home improvement. Think of it as spring cleaning but for fall… and instead of throwing things away, you add a few practical and affordable renovations that give you the extra boost to close out the year like a boss.
Remake Your Bed
When’s the last time you updated your bedding? And no, I’m not talking about using those old sheets that you took from your grandma’s house. I mean, purchased bedding for yourself that matches your bedtime needs. Maybe you’re a fleece sheet set with a ruffled duvet or you want a light breathable blanket to matches your room. Either way, a bedding update will give your room a quick and easy facelift. You’ll sleep better too.
Added Bonus: Replace your pillows, too. Especially if they’re the same ones from college. It’s time. Let ‘em go.
Treat Yo Windows
If eyes are the windows to the soul, then windows are the eyes to your neighbors business. Windows tend to get neglected sometimes but they can really make or break a space. Quickly and easily change the vibe of an entire room by updating your window treatments.
Lighting is everything and so simple to change. Replace your desk lamp with a floor lamp. Change those LED bulbs to a softer warmer (still energy efficient) bulb. Or screw traditional lighting and string lights throughout your space. Or put up a neon sign of your face! Too much?... Cool, cool, cool.

Throw Some Pillows
We’ve all had the “I need a new couch”, conversation with ourselves but couches are not cheap. Rather than dropping a bunch of money on another couch that you’re just going to spill red wine on in a few days, add or change your throw pillows. Throw pillows add texture and personality to that old couch you’ve been staring at for years. They also cover stains pretty darn well.
Let Me Upgrade Poo
When you think of home improvements, you very rarely think of toilet renovations. Probably because upgrading your toilet normally costs big bucks and a lot of manpower. Not with the TUSHY bidet! Upgrade your bathroom in minutes by turning your basic toilet into a magical butt cleaning machine. TUSHY is the modern bidet attachment that clips on to any standard toilet and cleans your booty.
Home improvement doesn’t have to be full weekend projects that cost you thousands of dollars. Renovate your space with these small-budget, huge-impact upgrades you’ll love.
