3 Cost Effective Ways to Transform Your Home
Updated: 4 days ago
Transforming your home doesn’t always have to involve spending a small fortune, or living with an upside down home for months on end while contractors renovate the rooms.
Below are 3 simple, budget-friendly ideas for making your home look and feel brand new, and that don’t involve moving out or continually tripping over contractors:
Declutter – on a mass scale!
It’s absolutely free to go through your home and get rid of things you no longer like, don’t want or don’t need, and you’ll be amazed at what a difference such a simple activity can make. Whether you have items to replace what you remove, or not, giving yourself a clean slate will either inspire you to keep your home in a minimalistic style, or go out and buy new items of décor that reflect what you now want from your home. Be sure to carry out the decluttering process in every room of your home, for the most impact.
Decluttering also gives you the opportunity to clean your home without so many obstacles getting in the way, and sometimes a truly clean home (as in one that has been deep cleaned), can feel like a new home.
Freshen things up with a lick of paint
A new and vibrant colour scheme can be all it takes to give your home a new dimension and atmosphere, and if you select the right colours for the right rooms, you could discover your homes true potential. Pair your new walls with a few new accessories (or overhaul your entire furniture range if your budget permits), and before you know it, you’re wondering if it’s even the same home!
Whether your paintwork is looking dull or damaged, or you simply fancy a change, having your home professionally repainted can be a fantastic way to update it, without having to spend too much money.
Replace outdated furniture and accessories
Sometimes, you look around your home and simply feel fed up with looking at the same old furniture or your tastes may have changed in recent years or months, and your furniture and accessories no longer reflect your style. Whatever the reason for replacing your furniture and/or accessories, it almost always gives the desired result, of making you fall in love with your home again. You can even have some of your existing furniture reupholstered if you’re getting tired of it, or it’s beginning to look worn and faded, but oftentimes, buying new is just as effective and if you shop during the sales, you can get some great bargains.
With a little imagination and less money than you might think, it’s possible to transform your home and make it a space you love to be in. From getting rid of clutter, to repainting and refurnishing, if your home isn’t inspiring you anymore, there are plenty of simple and affordable ways to fall in love with it again.
