How to Renovate Your Home on a Budget

Many people inevitably find themselves looking through home magazines or driving past furniture retailers, and they wind up wanting to transform their home into a lavish palace filled with wealthy appliances. While this is not something most people will end up with, it is still possible to renovate your home on a budget with some ingenuity.

Painting and Lighting
Starting renovation with a new coat of paint is a huge step toward cheap renovation. Just changing the colour of the walls gives a house a brand new look, and the smell of the paint will give your house an additional sense of newness. Alternatively, you can add some wallpaper instead or along with paint. Additionally, adding some new lighting effects is another great and quick method to give a home a new feel. Sometimes, something as simple as adding a tall lamp to a room can jazz it up.

Accessories It is easy to install wall sconces, which can contribute a great touch to a room. Similarly, you can add accessories to your home to completely alter the feel and style of it in a pinch. For example, just by adding some silk pillows, fresh-smelling candles and some chenille throw blankets, you can achieve a designer style on a budget. Creating a lovely coffee or dining room table centerpiece can be as simple as composing an enameled jug filled with lilies or putting freshly cut rose petals inside of a jar. Depending on the kind of look you are hoping to achieve, you can even hand up paintings or pictures for a fresh look.
