We all want our home to look its best; it is a reflection of who you are and is so much more than just bricks and mortar. It only stands to reason that you will want to give it a bit of a spruce up every now and again. Fortunately, remodeling doesn't always have to cost the earth.
There are many easy ways to remodel your home that are inexpensive and very effective. Why not try some of the following if you're looking for a quick way to spruce up your home:
The Power of Paint
Paint is a great way to change a room relatively cheaply. You don't need to be a professional, just take your time choosing the color palette you want â€“ try getting some testers and paint a little on your walls to see if it suits the current dÃ©cor. When it comes to painting again don't rush and do a slapdash job â€“ it's better to do it once and do it right. You can even try painting your ceiling a new color to add further character to your home, and there are specialist floor paints available for giving tiles a new lease of life.
An Exciting Entrance
Up your curb appeal majorly by paying some attention to your front door. You can paint the entirety of it, or just opt to paint the trim in a bright color for contrast. Another option is to purchase new home number or add decorations, wreaths or potted plants to frame your entrance. Outdoor lighting to guide your visitors is a nice aesthetic touch.
Lighting can make a huge difference to the ambiance of any space, so it's a great way to refresh a room instantly and at a low cost. If you don't want to invest in new lamps, search around thrift stalls to find a bargain â€“ you can easily change the fabric on them. Alternatively, you can paint the blades on a ceiling fan or simply add a dimmer switch.
You can give your cabinets an easy, cheap facelift by giving them a lick of paint. Try a distressed or contrasting look and replace the handles/knobs and voila! Your kitchen will be transformed and for a fraction of the price of new cabinets. If you want a more classic look, you can sand and stain them.
Crafty Crown Molding
This adds a definite touch of class and elegance to your home, and you can easily complete this job for a small cost. Try using a contrasting color to bring a modern edge to your interior.
Make a Statement
Use wallpaper to make a statement â€“ be bold and choose a patterned piece. Small spaces (such as your downstairs bathroom) can actually work quite well with statement walls. If you don't feel like being so adventurous then choose one wall in a room or perhaps a chimney breast and use the wallpaper there.
