Now and again, we become tired of the same old decoration, but we aren’t always in a financial position to make the desired changes. Maybe we need a new bathroom or a new kitchen, but it isn’t financially possible at the moment. There are some solutions to this dilemma, and they don’t have to be expensive either. With the right materials and creativity, you can rejuvenate your home’s look and feel at any time.
A new-looking front door
If you ask someone from real estate what the main selling points of a house are, they will tell you the kitchen, the interior decoration – neutral colors sell well – and the front door. Your front door says a lot about the style of your house and your personality, but you don’t have to break the bank to give it an update. Choose a color for your front door that appeals to you and contrast with the exterior of your house, and get painting.
A budget bathroom upgrade
Bathrooms tend to deteriorate pretty quickly, this is because it’s a high use area, but the dynamic temperature changes and excessive moisture also contribute. An entire bathroom refit can be expensive, and most of the time, unnecessary. Update the fixtures in your bathroom, using replacements that fit neatly into the previous holes; replace the showerhead and shower screen. Mould is a persistent issue in the bathroom, so keep on top of it with regular tile grouting.
A timber garden fence
Some timber fencing around your garden’s perimeter at the back is an effective and inexpensive way to add a sense of newness to your outdoor space. There are many different types of timber fencing to choose from, including acoustic fencing, soundproof fencing, and classic timber fencing. Depending on your preferences, you can have fencing that makes your garden completely private and soundproof or allows some of the neighborhood sounds to filter through.
Use removable wallpaper
Wallpaper can be an excellent way to revitalize your living space, but the very thought of it can demotivate you to do anything about it. That’s where removable wallpaper comes in. It’s so easy to put up and takedown, and you don’t have to mess about with a pasting board. Interior designers note that people tend to get bored with their interior every three to five years – if this sounds like you, then removable wallpaper could be a good investment.
Get creative with cabinets
If your kitchen is looking a bit dreary and uninspiring, then a few inexpensive tweaks can make all the difference. You don’t have to replace all your kitchen cabinets, instead, transform them so that they look like new. Replace the handles and knobs with new ones that feel more you, and consider replacing the doors altogether. Replacing doors of any kind is an excellent thrifty way to bring a new lease of life to a room. For a more dramatic effect, replace the cabinet doors with glass ones to show off your stylish crockery.
