It’s easy to get bored of your home decor and want to scrap it all and start over. But doing that requires renovations that can take a lot of time and even more money. The good news is, you don’t need to do that! You can upgrade your home in little, inexpensive ways that will completely transform the way it looks and feels.
The first thing you can do to spruce up a run-down room is give it a fresh coat of paint. Not only is it cheap and something you can do on your own, it’ll completely transform the room in just a day or two. That’s why painting is most often the first thing people do to improve their homes. Before getting started, make sure you have the right tools to really get the best possible results instead of just slapping some paint on the walls.
Renew The Kitchen Cabinets
Another area where paint will come in handy is the kitchen. Don’t go out and buy all-new cabinetry. Instead, get paint and get to work! Repainting cabinets is a fantastic way to upgrade your kitchen and give it a new look. Of course, this is so long as the frames and doors are all structurally sound. All you need for this project is sandpaper, a cleaning agent, a paintbrush, and a little elbow grease.
Add A Backsplash
No, we don’t want you to buy super expensive tiles and renovate the kitchen. You can buy peel-and-stick faux-gel tile backsplashes for an easy and fun project that will update your kitchen. It’ll give your kitchen that facelift you’ve been looking for.
Clean The Grout
One thing that tends to be overlooked is the grout in tiled floors. Buy a grout pen and clean out your floors to make them look as good as new. You can find pens that are mold-resistant and cover up to 60 meters of grout area.
Replace Old Cabinet Handles
Another kitchen upgrade you can do is replace the cabinet handles. How long has it been since you’ve installed them in the first place? Doing this will really give off the impression that you got new cabinets – without all those extra costs.
Get A New Rug
After a while, rugs tend to get run down, stained, and overall just old. To spruce up your living room area or bedroom, go out and buy a new rug. It might not be the biggest purchase, but we can assure you it will make a big change.
Switch Out Throw Pillows
If you want to make your living room look and feel better, it may be time to switch out the covers of the throw pillows you’ve been using. You don’t even need to buy new pillows if you already have them – just measure them and buy new covers for them. You can even buy a few options and switch those out occasionally according to seasons or holidays. Have fun with it!
For wall space that you simply aren’t sure what to do with, get a mirror and hang it there. Not only will it open up the room and make it look bigger and brighter, it will also add a luxurious touch to it.
