So you have the itch to start a new home renovation project? However time and money are keeping you from pulling the trigger. Well it doesn’t have to be the case that home renovation projects take forever to finish and end up blowing through all of your hard earned cash. There are plenty of quick and easy projects that you can start and finish over the weekend and will add value to your home. Here are some ideas for home renovation alternatives.
A splash of color can go a long way. Particularly in areas that are drab or you are not very fond of, you can first try adding a new color and see if that improves the space at all. Some great places to consider painting that will have a huge impact are your fireplace, dark walls or hallways, and kitchens or bathrooms. Before going all in on a home renovation project, consider simply painting or freshening up a space with some paint. It is quick and easy and can make all the difference in a space.
Tinkering with the light in a room can make or break a space. A well placed lamp, underlighting, or sometimes simply
a change in wattage can transform a room. If your room does not receive much light, there are alternatives to busting out walls or adding windows or skylights. Mirrors and lighting can achieve the same look but at a fraction of the cost.
Sometimes a room can be transformed by simply changing the layout of the space. If your room is cluttered with too much stuff, it can feel like the room is much smaller than it is. Consider for one, downsizing and getting rid of any objects that do not add value or enjoyment to your space. Additionally, consider the zen or layout of a room. If you are sitting in a space and it feels claustrophobic or unenjoyable, perhaps the fix can be as simple as moving some furniture around. Consider doorways and windows carefully when placing furniture. Having your back to a door can make a space uncomfortable.
