Whilst renovating your home can seem like an exciting idea, it is also painful on our bank accounts. We all understand the feeling of wanting to refresh your lovely home to modernise it and give it a new lease on life but understand that a full blown renovation is out of the budget. Follow these three tips to cure your renovation itch, give your home the refresher it needs whilst keeping the finances under control.
1. Fresh paint with feature walls
Applying a fresh coat of paint can do wonders to the interior of your property. It makes it feel newer, fresher and also gives you the opportunity to change the feel of your home. By repainting the interiors and adding feature walls it is a fantastic way to scratch the renovation itch without making any structural changes. Branch out and try wallpaper instead of paint to create modern vibes or create feature walls for a little fun.
There is no better way to give a facelift to a dated room than by changing the light fixtures. Opt for simple and elegant lighting around the house and then splash out on a few feature hangings for the main rooms. If you want to add even more wow to your room, think about feature lighting that illuminates a piece of art on your wall or spotlights a fantastic piece of furniture.
Curtains and window treatments are something so simple but can make the most dramatic effect on a room. So start by throwing out your old curtains and blinds and start afresh. Window furnishings can be found at low, moderate and high price points depending where you go so there is something for everyone’s budget. Fresh and updated window furnishings can make all the difference in a room whether it be something completely different or just refreshing the same style.
