8 tips to a Budget Home Renovation:
Moving into a new rented apartment or bored of looking at the same decor for too long?
Here are some tips that you could use to spice up the space with almost no expenditure.
With new space, comes great need for new furnishing. The thought is appealing but that doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pockets. Upholstery is the work of providing furniture, especially seats, with padding, springs, webbing, and fabric or leather covers. You could put your purchasing instincts to good use by selecting new fabrics for an existing couch and give it a new look. Adding, changing or mixing different curtains, rugs, cushion covers can completely change the look of any space.
When we say “add colours to your life”, we literally mean that. Colours brighten up a room like nothing else. Choose a wall of the room that you want to throw focus on and paint it with the colour of your choice. Adding a painted frame/wall mural from your collectibles would give that oomph factor the whole room.
Add quirk and life to your space with decor elements. Collecting articles from your travel destinations, which they are well-known for, would not only keep your memories alive but also add life and a story to your house when displayed on the empty shelves or walls.
Memories with your loved ones captured into frames are the best articles to give your space that personal touch every home needs. That is why photo wall is a must have for each home. Select your personal favourite pieces from the collection of your photographs and place them on floor with the layout of your choice. Now trace it on the wall that you think would be the best to display your “newly created art”. Our tip – Choose the passage wall.
Go green! With all the hustle you daily put in your lives, nature is one thing that always brings in the much needed calm and peace. You wouldn’t need to go and look for it somewhere else if you add a green little to your space to being wonders to it. Succulents and indoor plants can be planted in quirky ceramic/glass pots. They do not only act as air-purifiers but also provide the positive aura that every house needs.
Re-usability is the need of the hour. You could also attain a sense of pride by being eco-friendly when you re-use. Rather than throwing away that old piece of wooden chair, re-polish it and give it a new look. There are a thousand ways to re-use the old plastic utilized in your house and put it on display with that artistic touch. And DIYs are always fun!
LIGHT IT UP
Light up your world with the super-affordable fairy lights. They can be placed over the curtains to give a mood lighting effect in the room. Bedside lamps are a plus if you are an avid reader. They don’t always have to be store-bought if you got the time for a DIY!
Pleasing to the eyes should also please the nose. This is something that we all overlook while doing up our spaces. A well-decorated space is mandated to smell nice. Bringing in those scented candles would make sure that part is accomplished. Potpourri placed in glass bowls with added fragrant oils also do the trick.
Keep working and never forget, history is always in the making.
