Despite the theme and design of your home, you can easily upgrade it without breaking the bank. Updating your home enhances it functionally and aesthetically. Moreover, properly done home upgrades can improve the value of your home. With your busy lifestyle and the need to save for the future, you might be tight on budget.
But no worries; you can still give your home the look it deserves while reflecting your personality on a budget. Here are five easy and affordable tips to help you update your home on a tight budget:
Top 5 Home Upgrading Tips on a Tight Budget
- Paint Your Walls
A fresh coat of paint on your interior and/or exterior surfaces can give your home a totally new look. Hire painting professionals to give your ceiling, crown molding, walls and baseboards an instant new look. Whether you maintain your existing color or choose a different tone, your home will look as good as new.
- Accentuate with Throw Pillows
Add some pop of colors on your furniture such as bed, couch or even the floor, especially on your living room or bedroom carpet. Look for trendy patterns or bright colors to give your furniture some personality with style. For instance, if your couch has black upholstery or any neutral color, brightly colored throw pillows will give them life, enhancing the look of your entire living room.
- Install a Mirror in the Bathroom or Living Room
Mirrors are integral décor items. They’re both decorative and functional. Whether you choose to install one in the bathroom or living room, they can make your room appear bigger. If your rooms look small, consider installing a mirror to create the illusion of a larger space.
Mirrors also reflect items, creating the illusion of an item appearing more than once. For instance, if you have a beautiful artwork on your living room, install a mirror on the opposite wall at the same level to create another image of the piece of art.
- Change Your Furniture Upholstery
Instead of buying new furniture, simply change their upholstery not just to save you costs, but also give them a new look. Find a professional carpenter to get the work done from your home. You’ll be surprised how much you can save by changing your furniture upholstery and still getting a new set.
- Cost to Extend a House
Find out how much it will cost you to extend your house in case there’s need to do so as part of your home upgrade. If it’s within your budget, go ahead and expand your house for enhanced value.
Painting your kitchen cabinets and replacing your cabinet handles can also improve the look of your interior space. Also consider changing the backsplash for an entirely new kitchen look. Simply organize and declutter your home to give it an instant facelift. Replacing your curtains and lighting can also enhance your space on a budget.
