Easy Ways To Update Your Home Without Breaking the Bank

Redecorating is a fun way to boost your property value while also making your living space more inviting and polished. It can be pretty expensive, however, meaning a lot of redecorating options can be out of reach for people who only have a small budget to spend updating their homes. If you feel like you just don’t have the cash to give your home a complete overhaul, check out the following tips for some small changes that can have a big impact:

  1. Try a fresh coat of paint. This is hands down the easiest and most effective way to transform your space. And you don’t have to change the color to make this work – touching up your walls with the same paint you already have will have the space look instantly brighter (and thus larger!).
  2. Update your hardware. This can get a little costly, as the average high-end fixture runs from around $5-$25 per piece, but it’s worth it. You can transform a kitchen from outdated to modern-looking by simply changing all the handles and knobs.
  3. While you’re at it, update your lighting. Clean up your ceilings by installing recessed lighting, which will make your place look like it has more headroom than it actually does. Also, as we mentioned before, more light means the whole room will look larger and cleaner.
  4. Go vintage, if you absolutely have to buy something. You’ll find your items at a cheaper price (most likely), and they’ll have that rustic look that’s so in right now. Plus you’ll feel so much better adopting an older piece of furniture rather than buying a new one.
  5. Finally, get rid of clutter. Clean out your closets, donate anything you haven’t touched in 6 months, and revel in all the new space you have. It’ll have a restorative effect on you and your abode. Purging is good for the home, and good for the soul.
