So you want to remodel. There is one major problem; however, you have very little money. Lighting can make or break a room. There several small things that you can do to revamp your home without a huge investment. Something as simple as changing to lower-wattage bulbs can enhance an entire mood of a room. Greenery makes a room look alive. Simple green foliage often lasts longer than flowers, and the overall design of a single leaf can make more of a striking effect. Try a single palm leaf or slender flax in a giant vase. It has simple yet modern appeal. In your kitchen, add a small herb garden to your windowsill to add life to the room.
Just like walls, floors need your attention, too. If you’re able to completely change the surface, consider sanding or staining wood floors, or replacing old linoleum or carpet with tile. For a quick fix, add an area rug. There are so many options, making it easy to find the perfect style, shape and color for your space. By making your floors stand out, your walls can only look better. Living in small spaces presents two options: building up or building under. Consider using tall bookshelves for a more dramatic effect, or take advantage of the space underneath your bed to store things you’d love to keep out of sight.
There are several simple painting ideas that can modernize your living space with very little money. Fake architectural detail. This can be done in a variety of ways. Using painter’s tape, you can paint horizontal or vertical lines, which can make the room look bigger. You can also make shapes like rectangles and squares, creating a box on the wall for framing out furniture, sconces or your favorite picture. With molding, you can give the illusion of added depth and dimension to the walls.
Buying a timeless sofa or kitchen table will save you money as your style changes. It’s better to switch out the little things than buy a couch every two years. Consider simple fixes before you get rid of something. Bring life back to leather furniture with a little olive oil; make your kitchen chairs new again with a little spray paint and some fabric; get the scratches out of your wood floor and furniture by rubbing them with an almond.
There are so many great deals for every room in your home on places like Craigslist and eBay. After all, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
