If you are looking to give your home a beautiful facelift, then you will find these tips absolutely helpful. Here is how to update cheap finishes in your home.
If you know the difference between a nail gun and a power drill, then there is hope for you yet. As much as we would all love to be as handy as those guys you see on TV who can carry out a home makeover in a matter of hours, some of us just simply do not have the required skill set.
This means that we cannot simply wake up one morning, pick up a brush and decide to repaint our entire house without forcing the family to move into an entirely new neighbourhood. Unfortunately, this also means that we have to pay someone every time we need a little upgrading around the house.
This, of course, is very expensive and quite messy. It also takes a lot more time and requires far more planning. Which is one of the main reasons why some of us simply resign ourselves to our fate and decide to live in houses that are not as glamorous as we would like them to be. But, what if I told you that there are some simple ways through which you can update cheap finishes in your home without hiring an entire army of handymen? Here are cheap updates that can improve the value of your house:
Flood the rooms with light
Sometimes, all a room needs is more light. Poorly lit rooms look dark, small and very unwelcoming while brightly lit rooms look bigger, more open and quite exciting. One of the best ways to improve how your living room and some of the common rooms in the house look is to add more lighting to the entire set up. All you would have to do here is change the kind of bulbs you have or buy a few table and floor lamps that bring more light and energy to the rooms. This will save you from having to repaint the entire house a bright white.
Update your door handles and drawer pulls
Outdated, dirty and worn out doorknobs and handle pulls do make your rooms looks dated and rather dreary. Which, in all fairness, shouldn’t be the case because these things are really easy to replace. In fact, all you would have to do is buy a few different options for your kitchen and bathrooms and have someone replace all the dated ones in your home. This wouldn’t cost you so much money and neither will it take a lot of time for the right handyman.
Focus on your window treatments
You may not realise this but your windows might need more work than you are putting into them. The problem here is that most of us spend so much time trying to think about all the fancy Victorian era blinds and different types of treatments that would compliment the rooms best. With all the options out there, it is not surprising that we get overwhelmed.
When that happens, we simply decide to go with the same old curtains we have had ‘while we make our minds up’. To save you from all these headaches, the easiest way to update your window treatments is to go with the colour schemes that you already have in your rooms. Simply match your treatment options to your style and the prevailing colour schemes in your rooms.
You should know that it is the little things you do that compound into major changes in your home. These tips will help you to update cheap finishes in your home.
