It’s estimated the average family will spend around 13 years in the same home, and, over that
time, it’s almost inevitable your house will start showing the signs of aging and general wear and
tear. However, rather than just leaving these niggling problems to remain, there are numerous
ways you can revamp your environment without breaking the bank.,
If your home is starting to show its age a little, below are a few very simple and very quick ways
you could revamp your rooms on a budget.
Refresh your space with a lick of paint
One of the most obvious ways to transform your home is by repainting rooms, doors and windows.
It can often be surprising just how much a new color (or even updating in the same shade) can
change the ambiance and general feel of your space. Also, for an added touch, don’t be afraid to
include a ‘feature’ wall in a striking color.
Update your rooms by hanging new wallpaper
Much like painting a room can change the general feel of a room, wallpaper too can transform your
surroundings. However, when choosing suitable wallpaper, you should always bear in mind the
size of the space you’re redecorating. As a general rule, patterned or striped wallpaper should be
avoided in smaller spaces as they will make the room feel more confined – and the same applies to
using darker colored paper in your smaller rooms.
Refresh your old wooden floors
In recent years, wood flooring has been a popular choice for a family home due to its practicality
and ease of maintenance. However, despite being hard-wearing, wood floors can quickly lose their
shine through the daily wear of family life. If you’ve got wooden floors in your home that are
starting to look a little lackluster, you should consider dustless hardwood refinishing to bring back
the sparkle and have your floors looking like new again.
Invest in new doors
You might not realize it but sometimes even the simplest of tasks can have a big effect on the
feeling and look of a room – and changing doors is one of the easiest ways to help freshen up your
space. In particular, changing the front door of a home could make your house feel more
welcoming and help make it look new again.
Update your kitchen on a budget
They say the kitchen is the beating heart of a home so this is one area you should definitely
concentrate on if you’re looking to update your space. However, while it’s true a full kitchen
upgrade can be expensive, there are tried and tested kitchen hacks you can use to completely
transform the room on a budget.
If you want to update your kitchen space without spending too much, try changing the doors on
your units and cupboards. Alternatively, another great tip is to replace work surfaces or buy new
kitchen furniture. Lastly, replacing the floor in your kitchen (or even repainting it) can be a great
way to completely change the look – and all without splashing out too much on your refurb work.
