How to maximize impact with a small renovation budget
When it comes to renovations, small things can have a big impact on the interior of your home. Complete repairs often involve time, money and craftsmen. However, it is not always necessary to invest a lot in repairs.
There are some small things you can do that will have a big impact on both the look & feel of your home. So if it’s time to spruce up your home, see the small changes you can make to maximize the impact of your renovation project.
Start with the lights
A very minor change, such as the adaptation of lighting, can have a huge effect on the overall atmosphere in a given room. Whether you’re just putting a dimmer, replacing your current bulbs with softer, white light bulbs, or adding floor lamps to the interior, this is a great way to freshen up the interior and add a pinch of sophistication.
Depending on the lighting, a room can look bright and spacious, or cozy and warm. So first think about what you want to achieve and then act on it!
Replace / add throw pillows
A couple of new decorative pillows in your bedroom or living room can make a striking difference, especially if they are in a more contrasting color or have some sort of texture. If your decor and furniture are more neutral, bright-colored throw pillows can completely change the palette of the room for the better.
This option is ideal even for low-budget projects, as you can easily replace only the pillowcases of old pillows and still make huge impact.
Decorate with houseplants
Houseplants have many benefits. A little greenery in a room can improve the overall appearance of the space. But it’s not only that the plants look good. They also make us feel better – physically and mentally – which is the primary reason to get yourself off the chair asap and have a trip to the nearby garden center.
What about the design benefits of plants? Decorating empty corners with plants placed at different heights can add depth to the space. Alternatively, by placing smaller pots on shelves and countertops you can give new energy to the room. Speaking of pots, take the time to pick, choose, mix & match the pots that would go well with the overall interior of a room.
Last but not least, you could decorate one of the walls in a room to make it a central element in the design of your home. This element can have a strong visual impact, and is a cost-effective way to liven up the space. Choosing a bold color or decorative wallpaper to complement the rest of the decor of the room will completely transform it!
These are just a few minor things you can do to change the look of your home. Nevertheless, the effect will be great. If you are looking for renovation options that will add value to your property, however, start with new interior or front doors!
