Making a list is fun and so is giving your home a makeover. So here we’ve decided to combine the two and tell you the top six ways you can get your home remodeled on a shoestring budget.
We’ve decided to focus on small projects that don’t cost a lot and are likely to make your house look brand new in no time.
Shopping online has opened up a whole new world of furniture and decor that you can access. You can now get custom made furniture from the other side of the planet sent to your doorstep in less than a month.
The possibilities are endless, but so are the costs. There’s bound to be better and cheaper choices available right in your own backyard.
Look for local sellers who sell antique or vintage home goods. Upholstered chairs, small lamps and framed paintings won’t costs you a lot and can really change the way any room looks.
Do it yourself, sometimes
This tip really depends on how handy you are with household stuff and how interested you are in fixing the roof or painting a wall.
DIY is not just for enthusiasts looking to kill time. When I was a student in England, I had no choice but to go the DIY route to save money.
Not only do you pick up some cool skills, but you also save yourself the trouble of having to wait for an expert to come by, fix it and charge you at the end.
The internet is your best friend in any DIY project you take upon yourself. But remember to call that spray foam insulation company in Syracuse if you struggle with insulation. It’s best to get things done right.
Walls with accents
You want to know what is cheaper than painting the house. Painting, one wall each time. Adding a different accent to the room by painting just one, prominent wall can really help you save costs.
Plus, the effect is incredible. The whole room tends to look different if you really do it right. Another DIY project to add to the list.
Add a mirror
A cheap and simple way to make your room look a whole lot bigger is to add a mirror. This mirror doesn’t need to be anything fancy, just shop local and get one big enough to make a difference.
You don’t need to add new things to make your house look better.
The best way to remodel the house is to take away the old stuff and de-clutter the house.
Take some time out every year to clean and reorganize the place.
Play with lighting
Finally, play with the lights in every room to make your house appear brand new without spending too much.
You can get some cool LED lights that change color to make a clear difference to the way a room appears.
