There comes a time when every homeowner wants to revamp their home. It could be for the holidays, to accommodate a growing family or to redecorate after children leave the nest. Whatever your reasons for wanting to redo the look of your home, you don’t have to break your wallet. There are clever ways you can improve the interior of your home while maintaining a budget. Here’s how.
Repaint All the Walls in Your Home
You’d be surprised how much of a difference a fresh coat of paint can make. The colors you select can create an airy atmosphere, and darker more vibrant colors can give a space a bold look. Designers typically go with lighter colors for kitchens and bathrooms to make the room feel larger than it is. Then, the bedrooms and living area can use bolder reds, blues and dark greens. Consider using accent walls for the bold colors if you feel painting all four walls would be too overwhelming.
Install New Counters and Cabinets
You can typically find great deals on countertops and cabinetry. There are manufacturers that offer discounted rates for quality products. Some contractors also have connections, so it’s best to call around. See if you can find a package deal for labor and material costs. Then you can finish up your kitchen with beautiful new décor from Kate Spade.
Install a New Bathtub and Shower
Besides the vanity, the bathtub and shower in your bathroom are focal points that can add or detract from the room. If you have outdated showers and bathtubs, consider switching them out for modern ones. You can find spacious standup showers with double shower heads. Or you can opt for a large spa tub, if space allows.
Transform a Room
If you have children who’ve left the nest, consider transforming their room into something else. You can turn it into an office, game room, workout room, movie room or guest bedroom. Surely, you can think of something to do with the space. You can hire a contractor to help build a bathroom, closets or other essential additions.
