How To Renovate Your Home On A Budget
Are you looking to upgrade your home? It can be challenging when there are lots you want to do with your property, but you’re working within a pretty tight budget. Here are some tips for renovating your home to a high standard while having low resources.
Install A Skylight
Is the interior of your loft or attic room looking a little dark? Installing a skylight is a relatively cost-efficient solution to brighten up a dark space. In fact, over time it can actually save you money. The sunlight entering your property will naturally heat up your home, saving on energy costs. Skylights may also add value to your property, making them a great solution for a dark loft space.
Replace Or Do-Up Internal And External Doors
Painting or replacing your front doors is a great way to renovate the exterior of your home. A tired front door can really age a property. A fresh lick of paint can completely transform the front of your home. You can also replace interior doors to make the inside of your home look more modern. You could get doors with glass panels to help light circulate in your property. Painting hallway doors with uniform light colours can also help your home seem brighter.
Replace Kitchen Countertops
Replacing your countertops can completely change the appearance of your kitchen. Go for more cost-effective solutions with a high-quality finish, like wood laminate or faux marble. You can also replace or paint the front of your kitchen counters with lighter colours to make the room look brighter and more spacious. To avoid materials becoming dated, opt for paler tones and avoid choosing orange in your countertops or cupboards.
Install New Curtains And Blinds
Are your curtains and blinds looking a little tired? Replace them with lighter shades and tones. If you are rehanging curtains in the bedroom, consider blackout curtains or blinds to get a better night’s sleep. For the same quality on a budget, buy some cheap black fabric and stitch it to the inside of your curtains.
Upgrade Your Upholstery
Give your cushion and chair covers an upgrade to transform the appearance of your home. You could invest in re-upholstery services to have some assistance with putting new fabrics onto your existing furniture. Alternatively, you might want to invest in some decent sofa covers to make your furniture look brand new, without the hassle of investing in new upholstery.
Your home renovation does not have to be extensive to look good. Consider installing a skylight in your loft room to make the place brighter and save on your heating bill. Replace home countertops for cheap yet high-quality finishes that can modernise your kitchen. You can even take some smaller steps to change the colour scheme and make your home appear lighter. New curtains, blinds and cushion or chair covers can completely change the appearance of a room. Visit James Dunn Roofing today to see how we can assist your home renovation.
