How to Instantly Upgrade Your Home on a Budget

After a year of staring at the same four walls, it makes sense that a lot of us are looking to make a change in our homes. Now that the tradesmen are working again and the DIY stores have opened, more homes than ever are getting an overdue facelift. The urge to renovate has simply become too much to bear.

But renovations are expensive. You can put on your DIY helmet as much as you want, but chances are you will still need a big budget for the materials alone. Instead, we offer you a few professional finish ways to make a drastic change to your home, without spending too much money. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out.

Embrace minimalism

You’d be surprised what a clear out can do for the look of your home. See all those ornaments you have collected over the years? Aren’t you tired of looking at all of them? They don’t all need to appear at once.

Be ruthless and limit yourself to one or two per room. You can put the rest away and switch up your look every now and then by pulling out the old ones you love. You will declutter, not only your home, but your mind, by being able to see the blank spaces on your shelves. Plus, it will make polishing easier.

Revamp your floor

Putting a new floor down takes a lot of money, work, and disruption. Instead, you could give a new finish to a floor that has lost its sparkle by using a floor sanding service. You could rejuvenate an old floor to its original beauty or add a new coat of varnish in a modern colour for a new look.

Plus, it will be better for your floors in the long-term. Sanding wood floors will make them stain proof and more resistant to moisture damage, which is common in real wood floors.

Rather than laminating your floor, which will cost as much but bring the value of your home down, you can sand them for a less disruptive or expensive upgrade to your floors.

Add an accent wall

Accent walls have taken off in the past few years, and you can see why. When showroom after showroom and rented property after rented property is stark, suppressive white, people will look anywhere for a pop of colour.

Accent walls are a great way to make a statement with very little materials or effort. You’re only painting one wall, after all – or wallpapering. Most accent walls are a bold colour to create contrast in a room full of neutral light tones, but if you simply want to add a bit of pattern to your room, go ahead.

For a semi-permanent solution, take a look at your local DIY store for a stick-on alternative. Perfect for renters looking to personalize a space with a strict landlord, there is no complicated gluing you’re bound to get all over the carpet, but instead, simply peel the backing and stick it to the wall.
