The first people to notice the changes you make to your home are probably going to be your neighbors — they live on the same street, after all. And, though you’re the one basking in the compliments, you might not realize that they’re also getting a bit of inspiration from you, too. Whether they see an addition you’ve made to the interior or the exterior, they’ll likely compare the changes to their own abodes and wonder what they can do better. Do you want to be the block’s blueprint for how to spruce up a home? If so, use one of the following six home décor trends, and watch as your inspiration inspires others.
1. Repaint Your Front Door
The front door is the entryway to your home, so it’s no wonder that it gets most of the attention when it comes to curb appeal. Once you change its color, you change the entire look of your home’s façade — in other words, your neighbors are sure to notice it. Choose a shade that goes well with the material used to build your home, as well as any other painted accents that you already have. If you’re feeling extra industrious, you could update your front-porch décor to make it an even better representation of you and your style.
2. Mismatch Something Unexpected
A dining table and its chairs should always match, right? Think again. More and more designers are making a bold and fun statement out of an otherwise traditional piece, placing chairs of different heights, sizes and colors around the same table. The result is a conversation starter and focal point for your kitchen. As an added bonus, you can usually create this look for much less money than you’d drop on a matching set. Hit up garage sales, flea markets and thrift shops to find chairs that are ready to use or will be after a few coats of paint or reupholstering.
