5 ways to spruce up your home in 2017

With 2017 in full bloom, the 5miles team has made a list of 5 ways to help you spruce up your home for the new year.


  1. Add depth to your home with a mirror.

Not only do mirrors add an aesthetic to your wall, they also provide the illusion of more space, making any room feel bigger.


  1. Display cool finds as art.

Art doesn’t only go on your walls. Display tchotchkes, antiques and other unique items as art and use them as conversation starters. Check out some cool antiques and finds here on the app.


  1. Upgrade your lighting.

Lighting can be an important aspect when decorating your home. Floor and table lamps can accent a room’s features and create an inviting ambiance.


  1. Add a new coat of paint.

Painting is probably the easiest and least expensive DIY project you can undertake to transform a room. Light colors can be used to create playful, cheerful moods in kitchens and living areas. Darker colors set a more serious, quieter tone and are great for bedrooms or office areas. If you’re tackling a big project, you can even hire a little help. Remember that 5miles also has services.


  1. Add an area rug

Area rugs are a great way to define spaces or bring together an assortment of furniture pieces. Like mirrors, area rugs also create the illusion of space.
