Don’t let your budget stop you from achieving your home renovation goal..
Whether to increase the value of your home, to create a fresh and pleasant aesthetic to an aging space, or merely exercising your creativity through home remodelling, home renovation can be quite pricy. But don’t let your budget stop you from pursuing your interior design goals. Here are six things you can do now at a low cost.
1. Fresh coat of paint
Updating the interior of your home with new colours is a common and effective way to create a fresh look. But before buying your paint, make sure to have a strategy that moves toward your goal — to make the space look bigger, higher, or brighter. Check out these few tips:
a. Painting your walls, trim and details in different shades from the same colour family (like grey or light blue) would make a whole space look bigger.
b. If white is too boring, go for black! It may sound counter-intuitive, but black walls actually open up a small space.
c. Have you heard of accent wall? It’s true that painting one wall in a stronger colour than others could create an optical illusion of more space in the room. Plus, an accent wall creates a natural focal point, which makes rearranging furniture easier.
d. Raise your ceiling by painting it with a lighter colour than the rest of your space.
2. Make the kitchen your priority.
You might have been focusing on your living room or bedroom every time you’re doing a remodelling. This time around, start with your kitchen simply because it is the heart of your home. Here’s a remodelling trick for you: sand down your old cabinets and apply new finish to them. You’ll be surprised to find that this simple method could change the whole feel of your kitchen.
3. Rearrange your furniture.
Your furniture plays a significant role in creating an overall feel of the room. Instead of purchasing new furniture, rearrange what you already have. And sometimes, reducing the amount of furniture in one space works like magic! Moreover, this costs you nothing, but it sure can bring the feel of a complete remodel.
4. Personalize a large empty wall.
Instead of buying artworks, expensive mirrors, or other accessories, you should consider hanging your own work. Whether it’s a painting or photograph, using your own work is a great way to make the room feel more personalized. furniture plays a significant role in creating an overall feel of the room.
