As a homeowner, at some point in your life you want to make changes in the design or overall look of your home such as a new paint, having a new furniture, new cabinets, and floor tiles. However, making home change is a daunting task and it entails having the right budget. If you’re planning to make addition or major renovation, you will likely spend a lot of money for paying labor cost and materials. But there are many things you can do to still make your home beautiful and comfortable without spending that much. You really don’t need to be an expert when it comes to interior design, all you have to do is to research patiently, use your imagination, and use your creativity.
With many years of usage, your home furniture’s life span may end, having chairs that are unable to balance your weight anymore, wobbling table, and lumpy and uncomfortable sofas. Instead of purchasing a brand new furniture, you can consider furniture rental, which is a great way to save money while being able to provide a comfortable and good looking furniture for your home. Not only that you can get a chance to have a nice looking furniture but you can also eventually purchase a furniture through rent-to-own scheme if you really like it. Proper lighting makes a difference to make a room more luxurious and spacious, and many homeowner don’t realize this. You can bring in more natural light in your home or change your light bulbs to something more energy efficient such as LED lights. You can rearrange your furniture and rooms to make it more appealing, organized, and with a new look, like positioning your sofa pointing directly at you tv, or placing your table in the center of the dining room. You can experiment with a new layout so you can find something interesting. Instead of changing your entire sofa set, you can just change the cushion or sofa fabrics to something new. It is also a good idea changing the color of your curtains that suits the climate or weather such as bright yellow, orange or red for cool climate, or blue, mint green, or baby pink for warm climate.
For your kitchen, prioritize spending on repairs for your pipes, sink and faucet rather than spending much on purely aesthetic purposes such as changing MDF kitchen cabinets to hardwood, or concrete countertops to granite. Experts recommend purchasing an inverter AC if your current AC is beyond repair to save you more money in the long run. Just make sure that you spend wisely when making repairs, renovation or new construction.
