I always dreamed about living in a big fancy house, but I never thought it would be possible. However, with a few small changes and some budget-friendly updates, your home can look like it belongs on the cover of Architectural Digest. Here’s how:
Get rid of the clutter
Clutter can make your home look smaller. It can also make it look disorganized, dirty, and dated. When you have less stuff in your house, it’s easier to clean and maintain–and this is especially true if you have children!
- If there are toys everywhere (and there are), then it might be hard for them to find anything they need when they want it. And if these toys aren’t organized well enough that the kids know where their favorite ones are at all times…it could lead to frustration on both sides!
- Or let’s say you have some old clothes lying around that no longer fit because of weight gain or loss–those should definitely go into storage somewhere else besides just being thrown into piles on top of other piles inside closets/drawers/etcetera…because then these clothes will just get dusty over time due to lack of air circulation (which happens when things get stacked up next together).
Update your kitchen
If you’re looking to make a big impact on your kitchen, then this is the place to start. The first thing you’ll want to do is get rid of any appliances that are old and outdated, replacing them with new ones. If you have cabinets in your kitchen, it’s time for an upgrade! Next up are countertops–the last thing anyone wants is an ugly laminate countertop when they have guests over! Finally, if there’s anything else in your kitchen that could use some revamping (like a sink), now would be a good time as well!
Update your Bathroom
- Replace your old shower curtain with a new one.
- Get a new toilet brush, and make sure it’s clean!
- Get a new toilet seat if yours is dingy or stained (or both).
- Upgrade your shower head by getting one that has more water pressure, which will help you save money on hot water bills in the long run as well as make your showers more enjoyable! This is an especially good idea if you have young children who like to take long baths or kids who enjoy playing in the tub–they’ll appreciate having extra power at their fingertips when they’re running through all their favorite Disney characters again and again!
Update your living room
- Replace old furniture with new, more stylish pieces.
- Add some color to the walls and flooring (you can do this by painting or adding a rug).
- Replace the carpet with hardwood floors if you want to create a more clean and modern look in your living room, but if you have kids or pets who might damage them then stick with carpeting for now!
Get some plants!
Plants are the perfect way to add color and life to your home, but they can be expensive. Luckily there are many ways to get them for free or at a discount. Plants can help clean the air in your home and have been shown to reduce stress levels in people who spend time around them.
Add a fireplace
If you’re looking to add warmth and character to your home, a fireplace is the perfect way to do so. A fireplace can be used as a source of heat and light, which will allow you to save money on heating bills in the winter months. If you have an electric fireplace, it will not only provide heat but also create a wonderful ambiance for entertaining guests or relaxing after work.
If installing a traditional wood-burning or gas unit seems like too much work for now, consider adding one that’s easy enough for anyone with basic DIY skills: electric fireplaces are much easier than their traditional counterparts because they don’t require ventilation systems or chimneys–you just plug them into an outlet! These units come in several sizes and styles so there’s sure to be one that suits your needs perfectly!
Add crown molding to make it look more classic. Other than that, painting one wall or getting new furniture can make it look amazing.
When it comes to home decor, crown molding is one of the most common ways to add some character and make your space more classic. It can also be painted to match your walls or painted in a bold color that stands out from the rest of the room. If you want something more subtle, paint it in a neutral color so that it blends in with everything else.
This can be done on any wall and will add instant style points to any room!
Upgrade your flooring. This will not only make the room look more like it belongs in a magazine but it feels like you did something new and exciting with your home. It’s also more affordable than you think!
If you want to upgrade your home, but don’t have much money to spend on it, consider upgrading your flooring. This will not only make the room look more like it belongs in a magazine but it feels like you did something new and exciting with your home. It’s also more affordable than you think!
Look for a flooring that is durable and easy to clean (like hardwood) or even just paint over an existing carpet if that’s what’s there already! Look for one that will last for years (like vinyl) and won’t be worn out from lots of foot traffic or pets running around on them all day long either! You’ll also want something comfortable enough for bare feet so no stone tiles please – unless those are aesthetic reasons rather than practical ones 😉 Finally make sure that whatever material(s)are used matches up nicely with any other décor within reach; we don’t want mismatched colors here either!
A few small changes can go a long way!
A few small changes can go a long way!
- Add some color. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry–there are plenty of ways to add color without spending money. For example, paint the walls or buy new bedding with bold patterns and colors. You can also use colorful accessories like throw pillows or rugs in the living room or bedroom.
- Add texture (and pattern). Textures are another easy way to make your home look more interesting without breaking the bank: try painting walls or ceilings in different textures, adding wallpapers with different patterns, or even installing wood flooring instead of carpeting throughout the house (which is often more expensive).
I hope these tips have inspired you to make some changes in your home. Whether you’re looking to upgrade or just freshen things up, there are so many ways that you can do it on a budget. I think it’s important not only for the sake of saving money but also because we live in such an expensive world already; why not spend less money on things like decorating our homes? It seems like such an obvious answer when put into perspective!
