As a homeowner, at some point in your life you want to make changes in the design or overall look of your home such as a new paint, having a new furniture, new cabinets, and floor tiles. Many homeowners think that making home changes is challenging, daunting, and needs the right amount of budget. If you’re planning to make addition or major renovation, you will likely spend a lot of money for paying labor cost and materials. But there are many things you can do to still make your home beautiful and comfortable without spending that much. You really don’t need to be an expert when it comes to interior design, all you have to do is to research patiently, use your imagination, and use your creativity.
It can be understood that even the nicest home furniture can reach the end of its lifespans such as having lumpy and uncomfortable sofas, wobbling table, and chairs that are unable to balance your weight anymore. A great way to save money while providing a nice and comfortable furniture for your home is through furniture rental than buying a brand new one. This is a very good option to eventually purchase a furniture through rent-to-own scheme if you really like it, or save money to invest for something great in the future. Many homeowners overlook the importance of changing a lighting in your room for a more spacious and luxurious look. It is a good idea bringing more natural light in your home or by changing your light bulbs to something more energy efficient such as LED lights. You can rearrange your furniture and rooms to make it more appealing, organized, and with a new look, like positioning your sofa pointing directly at you tv, or placing your table in the center of the dining room. You can experiment with a new layout so you can find something interesting. Instead of changing your entire sofa set, you can just change the cushion or sofa fabrics to something new. Changing the color of your curtains is also a good idea to bring something new in your homes such as bright yellow, orange or red for cool climate, or blue, mint green, or baby pink for warm climate.
It is best to prioritize and spend on the most important things that need repair or replacement in your home such as fixing leaking pipes, repairing malfunctioning AC, or termite-eroded ceiling, rather than spending your money on purely aesthetic purposes such as changing MDF kitchen cabinets to hardwood, or concrete countertops to granite tiles. To save you, in the long run, you can purchase an inverter AC if your current AC is beyond repair. Just make sure that you spend wisely when making repairs, renovation or new construction.
