Do you want your home to look and feel brand new? Of course, you do, but you might not have a lot of money in your budget to achieve this. It’s not always possible to spend thousands renovating and redecorating our home. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make it look bright and new. Here are a few of the possibilities that you should consider to ensure your home looks fantastic even without a lot of spending money.
A Fresh Coat Of Paint
An easy option that certainly won’t break the bank would be to repaint the walls. You can paint them the same color with paint that you might already have leftover in your garage. The benefit of doing this is that you can get rid of all the marks that have built up over the years. If you have a dog, they will leave a mark on the wall where they like to lean. Kids will also leave oily fingerprints across walls that are particularly noticeable on cream and white areas. There are some home remedies that can help you remove these but the fastest option and most efficient possibility will always be to repaint.
Alternatively, you could think about repainting the walls a completely different shade. This is going to give your home a brand new aesthetic and help ensure that it looks completely different and fresh. If you’re thinking about selling sooner rather than later, do make sure that you opt for lighter shades. This will ensure that your home looks bright and clear.
You would be amazed at the impact of getting rid of some of the furniture can have on your home. It’s fair to say that if your home is cluttered with furniture it’s going to look cramped. If we take show homes as an example, these always have plenty of open space. This ensures that the home looks more grand and accessible. A good way to declutter is to think about what you need and what is really just there for decoration. If it’s there for decor, there’s a good chance that it doesn’t need to be there at all. You really only want a few pieces for decoration in each room. These should add something to the area without taking up too much space and wall decals are great examples of this. Wall decals look great, add character but they don’t encroach on the space a room offers. They’re also quite cheap so if you are interested then it could be well worth the investment.
Once you start decluttering the big question is going to be where are you going to put everything. You don’t want to just move clutter from one room to the other and you don’t have to. Instead, you can make sure that you are using a storage unit. These can be rented at low prices and are available in sizes to fit your specific needs.
Of course, it might just be a case of giving your home a good clean. Now, some of the areas of your home will need professional treatment. For instance, you might want to invest in rug cleaning and restoration. By doing this, you can make sure that you do get a quality finish that looks great and provides the results that you want. You can also clean some areas of your home yourself. A great place to start would be steam cleaning the kitchen tiles. This can ensure that they regain their original color or shade and look fantastic. You might even want to consider cleaning the outside of your home too. With a power washer, you can get marks off the patio and ensure that the exterior of your property looks fantastic.
Replace The Fixtures
Finally, if you’re looking for a cheap renovation option, you can consider replacing some of the fixtures in your home. Specifically, focus on light fixtures and faucets. Both of these are particularly important because if they are quite old and old fashioned, they will immediately cause the room to look dated. This is going to be the case even if everything else in the area is brand new. These are also points of focus for people visiting your home. Spotlights are particularly in trend right now. If you add these and opt for the popular sunken in spot lights do make sure that you are not altering the fireproof qualities of your home structure and specifically the ceiling.
As for faucets and handles, industrial, ultra-modern minimal fittings are great options and will ensure that your home looks fantastic.
