We can all feel fed up with our homes every once in a while; so if you fancy a change of décor there are small changes you can make to improve the look and feel of your home without bursting the budget. Equally, a fresh new look may be just what is needed to sell your property.
Replacing a tatty or damaged front door can instantly improve the curb appeal of your property, offering an instant welcome. A new efficient door also helps to reduce your fuel bills!
Stairs are often the first thing you see when you enter a property, consider changing shabby or stained carpet for a stylish new runner. You could also try stripping the carpet back completely, uncovering low maintenance stylish floor boards.
An old fashioned fire place can really impose on a room – rather than incur the cost and mess of knocking it out, consider covering it with a stylish fire surround, which can be relatively inexpensive and provide an instant update.
A splash of colour can completely change the way a room looks and feels. Consider buying new cushion covers or curtains, to introduce colours and patterns into your room whilst remaining an inexpensive quick fix. If you can’t afford new carpet, a rug can add a new lease of life and even cover that ugly stain.
Use your alcoves and corners wisely – consider shelving or fitted wardrobes to make the most of your space creating a tidy, clutter free room that’s easier to dust.
Tired of your outdated kitchen? Rather than splashing the cash on something new, try changing your splashbacks or tiles or upgrading your cupboard doors and handles. Cupboard paint is easily available in DIY stores if the budget is minimal. Your room will feel fresh and up to date for a reasonably low price.
If you’re looking to sell your home or you are able to spend money on home renovation, updating your kitchen or bathroom could be the smartest move. A beautifully finished kitchen or bathroom can sell a property, so the fresher the better!
If in doubt, a fresh lick of paint and a thorough clean can help perk up your property and make you feel more comfortable, whilst freeing up spare cash to spend on something special!
