Is it getting you down that your home is looking jaded, but you don’t have the money to freshen it up? Fear not, because there are a number of ways that you can reinvigorate on a budget.
We’re a reputable company of Swindon builders. We can help you with the more involved jobs, but let’s for now share some things you can do.
Smarten up To great effect
Your outdated bathroom tub and tiles simply by applying a fresh coat of paint. Tried and trusted, it’ll stay fresh after months of showering and bathing. You can also paint those 80’s avocado sinks and pedestals with epoxy paint and a good, quality brush. A few coats save replacing the unit and the costly plumbing costs.
Replace those ugly, bad-taste light fittings.
Go from builder-basic to classy and understated without having to spend a load of money. Attention to detail can also yield great results. The little touches can add up to making a home beautiful. Painting the inside of your lampshade with gold paint can add that luxurious look.
Frame a mirror.
If you have a simple wall-hung mirror in your bathroom, you can use inexpensive decorative moulding bought from any DIY shop to build it a frame.
Panelled or Shaker Doors
Room doors can be expensive to replace, especially if you want to go with a common theme throughout your home. If you have uninspiring flat-surfaced doors, you can give them the panelled, Shaker door look by cutting and nailing plywood strips to the door and finishing off with a fresh coat of paint. This at a fraction of the price of a brand new door. If you live in the area and this sounds like a trickier job, we’re Swindon builders who can do it for you. Give us a call.
You can never have too much storage space. You can fit bespoke shelving into alcoves and any awkward corners. Be inventive.
Do you have tired-looking, outdated linoleum floor? Flooring is expensive, so why not give it a transformative makeover and a brand new look with a lick of paint and a trendy stencil?
With a little more expense, there is a whole list of other things you can do or we can help you with. The theme for another blog maybe? Watch this space!
