5 Quick and Easy Budget-Friendly Home Renovations

Budget-Friendly Home Renovation

As the cold weather forces you to spend most of your time inside, you may find yourself longing for a change of scenery. However, updating your house can be expensive and time-consuming. Fortunately, there are many easy budget-friendly home renovations you can do today to help you escape the winter blues.

Add a Statement Wall

Adding a statement wall is a quick way to instantly give your room a modern look. Choose an eye-catching paint color or a fun patterned wallpaper for a welcome change. If you aren’t ready to commit to anything permanent, you can always use temporary wallpaper.

Switch Up Lighting

Lighting can have a huge impact on the look of a room. Give your space a whimsical feel with a string of fairy lights or install a chandelier for a more sophisticated look. You can even renovate the outside of your house by adding low-voltage lighting to deck stairs.

Revamp Cabinets

Dull looking cupboards can suck the life out of a kitchen. However, replacing entire cabinets is very costly. Instead, revive your space by giving dreary cabinets a fresh coat of paint. For a classic look, use neutral colors like ivory or pale gray. If you’re looking for a more dramatic update, we suggest using a bright color like blue or yellow.

Get a New Comforter

Swap out your old comforter with a fresh new one to liven up your bedroom. This renovation is much cheaper than buying an entirely new bed frame and can have a similar impact on the look of your room.

Incorporate Plants

Plants (literally) bring life into your home. Consider adding a few large potted or hanging plants to add depth and color to your space.

Updating your space doesn’t have to break the bank. We hope these budget-friendly home renovation ideas help get you one step closer to the home of your dreams.
