While it’s everyone’s dream to hire a designer and rake in high quality items for your beloved abode, this is not the case for everyone, especially if you’re on a strict budget.
Whether you’re a student, a newly married striving couple, or working 2 jobs while paying off debt, here are a few home improvement tips that fit to every budget:
- Change Your Door Knobs
So I won’t advise changing all the doors across the house, but merely changing the door knobs or upgrading to a new and sleek design is perhaps the best way of getting the best of both worlds. A sleek and polished wooden door with a newer door knob, and no one would know the difference! Try it yourself.
- Paint Your Cabinets
So you’re old cabinets have chipped edges and worn out paint? Well, worry not. An easy DIY you can do to instantly transform your space is by simply painting your cabinets and mini cupboards. Whether it’s the bathroom cabinet or the kitchen drawers, pick a slightly darker shade than usual, add a few key features to accessorize the finished cabinet, and you’re ready with an instant no fail DIY.
- Considers a Better Flooring Option
Solid wood work is always a great investment for your property. Not only does it add warmth to the room, it enhances the present features of your living room. If you’re short on budget, we recommend exploring into engineered wood flooring. It’s difficult to be differentiated from the real deal. You can have it nailed, screwed or glued depending on your preference.
- Change the Wall Color
Are you tired of the same boring wall color of your house when you first moved in years ago? Well, it’s time to change it! Go for a neutral palette ranging from creams, beiges and greys and paint to your heart’s content. You can also try painting the roof in a different color that complements the walls to further expand the color layout. If painting isn’t your thing, you could experiment with a few wallpapers in the colors and designs that you fancy.
- Incorporate Art in Your Room
If you have a bigger living space but you’re short on ideas to dress up your walls, then perhaps investing in wall art and paintings can make all the difference. You don’t have to go overboard and you can definitely buy paintings and abstracts from local retailers. If art isn’t your thing, then the market is full of tapestries and wall hangings in a variety of designs to choose from.
- Bring Nature into the House
Perhaps the best way to revamp and add earthiness to your living space is by incorporating nature inside the house. Whether it’s venturing into house plants, growing vines across your gallery or planting succulents in small pots as a decoration piece for your working desk.
The above tips will help you renovate your house while staying on budget. Good luck!
