How To Upgrade Your Home For Less
28 June 2018
The home you purchase isn’t always your dream property, but you can turn your property into the home of your dreams with a few quick fixes. Here are some tips to upgrade your home for less.
1. Paint your kitchen cabinets
Freshly painted cabinets give the kitchen an update without the cost of a full renovation. Choose light colours to brighten the space.
2. Add mirrors
Mirrors can make any space seem larger and are an easy way to ‘open up’ a room.
3. Invest in landscaping
Consider adding some landscaping to the front of your property. A tree or two works well in a more rural environment, and never underestimate the power of a few potted plants in an urban home.
4. Add wooden floors
Wall-to-wall carpet is no longer a popular choice, as homeowners now prefer wooden floors that they can choose to put a rug on. Consider vinyl flooring in a wooden pattern to get reclaimed wooden floors for less.
5. Freshen the front door
First impressions count, so choose a front door in a neutral glossy shade or pick a bright colour with personality.
