There are an unlimited number of updates and improvements you can make on your home's interior to change its appearance. Depending on the type of improvements you want to add, some updates are more or less expensive and more or less difficult than others. Here are some more simple changes you can make to your home to more greatly change its appearance to give your home interior a new style.


Paint is one of the easiest improvements you can make to your home to change the look of a room, and often you can do the work yourself with a steady hand and a little patience. Preparing for the painting is a big part of your success in applying new paint. Remove all decor from your walls and move furniture into the center of the room or into another room. Be sure to use plenty of fabric drop-cloths to protect from paint drips.

Wipe down your walls with a rag and warm water with a little liquid dish soap to remove the dust and dirt that can accumulate. For areas of your wall which have a build-up of grease from cooking and body oil from fingerprints, use a trisodium phosphate in the cleaning solution. Any residue left on your walls when you paint will prevent your paint from sticking as it should and your new paint application will be splotchy and uneven.

Apply the paint with a paint roller for the most even coverage and use an angled paint brush to paint along the baseboards and other molding. Hiring a professional painter like Dave's Minor Changes is helpful if you can't or don't have the time to complete the painting project and most can use a paint sprayer for even application. Check around your area or ask for referrals from friends to find an experienced painter to complete the work for you.

Replace Flooring

The flooring in your home, whether it is carpeting, vinyl, or other material takes a great deal of wear and tear as it is in constant contact with dirt from your feet and those of your pet's. Vinyl flooring can begin to curl up at its edges from age and receive cuts and dents from accidentally dropping heavy or sharp items. Carpeting can become stained and collect dust that can increase allergy symptoms in you and your family members.

Replace your old vinyl or carpet with an upgraded material to change the look of your home interior and remove or eliminate any dust-collection. There are many types of flooring, including tile, and various styles of hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring.

You can select a solid-surface flooring and still have the warmth of carpeting by placing area rugs. With an area rug you can add color and be able to remove the rug for professionally cleaning its surface and cleaning the floor beneath it.
