For some of us, the word “renovate” means giving the walls at home a new coat of paint. For others, the concept of renovating takes on much grander plans such as knocking down walls, extending a property upwards or outwards, or replacing kitchens and bathrooms. Whatever renovation plans you have for your humble abode, there’s no better time to put the interior design wheels in motion.
Renovating should be an exciting time–you get to refresh your property, add a touch of personality and bring it up to modern day living standards. Take a look at these three simple ways to renovate your home on a budget.
Why do you want to renovate your home? Are you looking to extend your property for more room? Or, are you looking at other homes for sale to relocate, and you need to get your property looking sharp to go on the market as soon as possible? Your motivations will dictate the renovations you need to carry out.
If you’re planning to have repairs, start looking into the work that needs to be done, and set a budget. Some jobs may be affordable and easy for you to complete yourself such as repainting rooms or clearing out clutter. Others may require a professional contractor to get the job done.
Updating a space for yourself? Have fun and brainstorm ideas. Whether you’re fixing a bathroom or creating space for a spare bedroom, you’ll need a game plan of which renovations need to take place. Whether you need to hire someone or buy new supplies from the store, planning out your vision first will help you get started.
If you’re ready to upgrade the design of your space, you don’t need to spend a fortune. A way to give your kitchen an updated look is to replace the kitchen cabinetry. Or, swap an outdated backsplash for modern tiles. Don’t forget to look online for your interior design inspiration. From blogs to magazines, there are countless options in any style you choose. Small spaces deserve love, too. You can freshen up rooms without having to make big purchases. Think new accessories such as plants, wall decor, and rugs. Before you know it, you could have a brand new look without breaking the bank.
While you may need professionals to complete jobs such as rewiring or plumbing, there is plenty of work you can do yourself to save cash. Head online to watch some video tutorials and redecorate yourself. Learn new skills such as constructing shelves or installing new blinds. Or, repair those cracks in the wall you’ve been meaning to fix. Labor costs can easily run into the thousands over time, so see which DIY tips you can pick up.
Renovating your home can be a fun and exciting experience. Before you embark on any scheme, make sure you’ve set aside the money and a goal you can stick to. Following a thought-out plan will help you design the home of your dreams on a budget.
