An easy house makeover

July 23, 2015 - 2 min read

If your property is starting to look tired, then you’ve probably considered renovating your home. However, the thought of long days ripping out walls and big house renovations can be overwhelming, and put you off the idea altogether! Here are some easy ways to give your house a new look.

If you’re looking to give your home a total makeover, but without the normal pain associated with renovating, we’ve found some great tips for an easy home makeover, as well as a few people who can help you out!

Paint, paint, paint!

One of the easiest ways to give your home a facelift is to paint it. If you’re worried your house is starting to look worn, freshen up the walls with a fresh coat of a light, neutral colour. This is the perfect way to do something easy that has maximum impact.

Change cabinet doors

Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and is one of the things that people look at to value a house. Old kitchen fittings can really drag down the look of your whole home, so make this a number one priority if you’re looking to renovate. Something as easy as changing the cabinet doors (whether you replace them or paint them) will make a huge impact on the feel of your home.

Reupholster furniture

While your furniture isn’t structurally part of the house, it does play a huge part in how your home looks! Rather than buying completely new furniture, why not have your old pieces reupholstered? You can change the fabric on your couches and chairs so you have a completely new look, without having to fork out the big bucks. This is a pretty difficult thing to try by yourself, so check out a local upholsterer to help you with this project.

Change your curtains (& hang them high!)

Another soft furnishing in your home that has a big impact are your curtains. Whether you don’t have any curtains, or yours are starting to look old and tacky, adding a fresh set can really impact the feel of a room. Visit a curtain specialist store to pick out your fabric! Top tip: hang them higher than normal—this helps to make a room look larger (without having to pay to have walls knocked down)!
