Home Renovations On a Dime

When you buy a home, you want it to be your dream home. Even if you find the perfect house for you and your family, you want to make it your home. Buying a house is a big investment, so you will want to make these home improvements at a low cost.

Re-do Walls & Floors

Your walls will be the first thing guests notice when they enter your home. If you have more understated tastes, you’ll want to paint over any bright-colored walls. However, it’s most common for walls to already be more muted colors like beige, grey and pastels. If you have bolder tastes and want all the walls in your house to be fun colors, you can save on the costs of paint by using washi tape as wallpaper. Your floors are just as important. In order to save money to fix your floors, use provenza heirloom flooring, vinyl flooring and carpeting.

Save On Furniture

Your furniture is the most important aspect of your house. You want it to match your personality in order for it to feel like home. One way to save money is to bring furniture from your previous house or apartment. Additionally, see if any of your relatives or friends have furniture that they no longer need. Another affordable option is to buy furniture off apps like Craigslist. Shop at discount furniture stores and second-hand stores to save.

Spruce Up Your Backyard

Your yard is where you’ll spend a good portion of your summer. Your family’s favorite part of your backyard will be your pool. If your house doesn’t already have one, consider buying a more affordable above-ground pool opposed to an inground pool. Save on the costs of yard maintenance by buying your own lawn mower and take up gardening as a hobby to plant your own flowers and vegetables.
