Cheap Home Improvements

Amazing house? Perfect interior? The look of the home is one of those things that many housewives are really working hard on. They want the best look, most functionality and easiest to clean possible. However, the money are always an issue to consider and therefore the amount which could be spend is restricted.

So, how to achieve wonderful and original look for your home, if you need to spend small amount of money on it?

  • Repainting

Changing the colour of the walls is the easiest and the cheapest way to change dramatically the look of your home. The paint, even the expensive one, is much cheaper than most other solutions, so take advantage of it.

Tip: if there are stains or mould on the wall, remove them properly, wait for the surface to dry well, cover it with small amount of primer, wait for it to dry too and repaint then. Usually, two layers of paint are enough. The only case in which more of the paint will be needed is when you change the colour dramatically – from dark to light one. Then more layers will be needed.

Safety tips

Always use mask, gloves and goggles during the painting.

  • Revamp your furniture

If you cannot afford to buy new furniture, revamp your old ones.

  1. Buy new fabric (before doing so ask the person who will put the new one on about the amount that you will need and only then purchase.
  2. Ask professional cleaners to clean the furniture after removing the old, stained fabric. These professionals have the needed equipment and solutions to reach deep and to deliver high quality cleaning.
  3. Place the new fabric on the furniture.

Tip: try to match the colour and the material of the fabric with the rest of the room.

  • Find a bargain

Go on the internet, visit the sales in your town and find new or old cheap furniture. You may find an old, second hand piece of furniture that just needs a bit of cleaning and will look brand new so look around.

  • Be creative

If you are still lacking of ideas, look around and find a new purpose of already used stuff. I can assure you that you have many objects in your home that have more than one usage and you are not aware of them yet.

Example:

Grab an old suitacase, take an old hat and some artificial, plastic plants.

Put the suitcase on your wardrobe and make the plant to go out of it.

Hang the cap on the plant.

This is a simple example that will make the house look fresher, even a bit adventures and is cheap to achieve.

  • Hire professional cleaners for the whole house.

This is not the cheapest but it is a 100% guaranteed method for refreshing the look of your home. The cleaners offer all sorts of cleaning and one – off cleaning so that you can pick whatever you want and can have it as soon as you want it. This makes the home better looking, healthier and safer for the whole family and it is cheap to get.

So, hopefully with these several ideas about your home decoration, you will have it all better looking without spending tons of money.
