Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Transform the Look of Your Home
Whatever your home currently looks like, there are always some changes that we want to make. It is easy to see why DIY and home stores are always so busy. Things wear and tear and can become a little dull looking. So most of us want to make some changes to our home. Unfortunately, we can’t all just afford to have a new kitchen or have all of the walls replastered. You can make some changes to your home that don’t cost the earth, though. Here are a few ideas for you. They are all quick, relatively easy and low budget ideas. I hope it gives you some inspiration!
Painting is one of the easiest ways to update the look of a room. It is relatively inexpensive, and you could paint a whole room in just one day. So it is a win-win for those of us that are short on time, as well as money. You could even save more time and just change things up by adding a feature wall, for instance. To make sure that you are even more frugal, it might be worth looking into a paint calculator. They can be found online, somewhere like Paint Online. It is basically just a tool to calculate how much paint you might need for a project. Then you can make sure that you don’t get too much and waste a lot.
Add Crown Molding
If the rooms in your home don’t already have crown molding along the top of the walls, then you could be missing out. It can really complete a room and give it such a stylish and classy finish. There are easy and cheap ways to add the molding, though. You can get polystyrene molding which is super easy and fast to cut. It is much cheaper than it’s wooden or plaster counterparts. It just sticks right on and can then be painted. You would just need a weekend to get most rooms in the house done.
If you have carpet in your home, it can be a bit of a pain. Yes, it keeps your feet nice and warm and is soft to walk on. But boy oh boy does it keep in the dirt and stains! You will know this to be especially true if you have light colored carpet. So a quick job (only takes a couple of hours), is to clean the carpets. You could borrow or hire a professional machine to clean them. If you have the products you could do it yourself, though it will be more labor intensive. They will be looking good as new in no time and will make the room look fantastic.
Caulk the Bathroom
We’ve all seen it when the tiles in our bathroom, or the seals around the bath, become stained and covered in mold. A quick and inexpensive job is to re-grout the tiles and then caulk along the bathtub seals. It will look bright and new and perfect for a quick little room update.
