Home renovations on a budget:
Consider replacing your flooring with inexpensive vinyl tiles which you can install yourself
If you can’t fathom spending several thousand dollars on expensive flooring such as hardwood floors in order to give your bathroom or kitchen floor a new lease on life, it’s well worth considering purchasing vinyl tiles, which you can install yourself for a fraction of the price. If you don’t like the look of vinyl, fear not as you can also purchase vinyl tiles which look just like hardwood or marble. You can even purchase tiles which feature a simple click and lock system, which you’ll be able to install in a single afternoon!
One of the advantages of opting for vinyl tiles is that if you’re unhappy with the look of your new flooring in a few years time, you’ll be able to replace it with new vinyl tiles in a different style and color, without making a dent in your bank account!
Give your home a fresh new look by painting all of the rooms in your home a crisp, clean shade of white
If you want to make your home to look modern, instead of tired and outdated it’s well worth spending a few hundred dollars in order to purchase enough white paint to paint the interior of your home white.
Consider changing out all of your kitchen and bathroom’s handles for stainless steel versions
Nothing says sleek and modern quite as well as stainless steel. So if you want to transform the look and feel of your home, why not purchase new stainless steel cabinet handles? Better yet cabinet handles can be purchased for a couple of dollars per handle, from most hardware stores.
Consider investing in a skylight
If your lounge, kitchen or bathroom is dimly lit, even when you open all of your curtains, you may want to seriously consider investing in a modern skylight, which will instantly make your previously dark and dimly lit room look brighter and more inviting.
Consider knocking down one of your kitchen walls in order to create an open plan living and dining area
If you want to create the illusion that your home is a lot more spacious then it actually is, it’s definitely well worth knocking down one of your kitchen’s walls, in order to create a wide open plan dining and living area. As a bonus, if you enjoy hosting guests, you’ll be able to talk to your guests, whilst they’re in your lounge and you’re preparing dinner in your kitchen.
So if you assumed that you had to spend a small fortune in order to renovate your home, think again!
