Many of us relate to the popular saying, “home is where the heart is”. This is because it is our comfort zone where we wake up every morning and return after a tiring or stressful day, to relax. Many of us are always looking for ways to change things up a bit, just to make it more interesting.
Home makeovers are often considered expensive; however, it does have to be the case. Here are 5 ways to give your house a makeover on a budget:
Paint your cabinets
A simple change in colour can sometimes make all the difference. You can repaint the cabinets in your kitchen, bathroom, and other rooms to colours that compliment the room, or even your favourite colour. And the best part is that you can do it yourself. You will find many step-by-step tutorials online to do this. All you need to buy are the paints and brushes. You could experiment with different styles, themes, and more.
Change your door number style
Although this seems like a really small detail to pay attention to, your house name and number are part of the identity of your home. If you simply have the name and number painted out front, you could consider getting it made in wood or metal. You could also add a different house bell.
Add wallpaper to a few walls
Depending on your budget you could buy wallpaper and add it to one side of your living room, bedroom, etc. You could contrast the colour of the walls with that of the wallpaper to give it a newer look and finish, instead if painting your walls.
Have a green wall
Embrace the eco-friendly way of living by adding some greenery to your home. Plants and pots are no longer meant to be just a part of your balcony or garden, you can have a green wall in your living room to give it a new look and make it eco-friendly. Simply get a few wooden planks and mount them on the corner of one the walls. Keep a few plants on the planks. You could even place a few books in between to make it a mini bookshelf.
Rearrange furniture in the living room
The simplest and cheapest way to give your home a makeover is to rearrange the existing furniture in your home. Choose a focal point and arrange the furniture around it.
If there’s room in the budget, you could even get a coffee table or a side table to keep things. Yes, buying furniture can be expensive. However, a cheaper alternative is to rent them. You can conveniently rent furniture online on a monthly or yearly basis. However, depending on your city of residence, it may cost you differently. For instance, to rent furniture in Noida or even to rent furniture in Gurgaon may be much cheaper than renting furniture in bigger cities like Mumbai and Bangalore.
Giving a makeover to your home may revitalise it, and in turn rejuvenate you too.
