Home Remodeling: 10 ways to renovate your home on Tight Budget

“Transforming” an ordinary house into a more luxurious one is difficult, especially when you only have a limited budget. Fortunately, there are many ways that you can apply to "change new clothes" for your home at a very economical cost.


Interior designers have shared a few very useful tips to make your home more luxurious and elegant without spending too much on the budget. From the placement of pillows to painting the walls to the treatment of windows and wood floors, there are many simple solutions for you.


1. Thread casting/molding

To make your home look more luxurious and elegant, pay attention to the smallest details. In this case, the small details are the thread/fabric for the ceiling and walls.


Casting will make the room look more complete, and help the ceiling and walls link together, creating a luxurious and elegant appearance. Without this finishing touch, rooms can look plain or unfinished.


Thread molding is relatively inexpensive (especially the plastic versions), and can be done on almost any budget. There are only a few sizes for you to choose from, but if you want the best visual effect to make your home look more luxurious, choose the widest horizontal/horizontal size that your budget allows. To get the best effect, try placing the moldings/pointers in multiple locations such as high wall edges, ceilings, columns, etc. of the house.


2. Repaint the wall

Paint color is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions when decorating a home. However, if luxury is what you are after, there are certain paint colors to add charm to your home. You can choose one of two color fields: bold and highlight, OR light color. These colors will make the house instantly luxurious. Choose a dark or light color depending on your preference.


Painting the door of the room black is also a great idea. This color automatically creates a luxurious, expensive feel without costing much. However, if you paint your door black, be sure to add some other black accessories to your home to make the overall space harmonious.


3. Place the pillow

Pillows arranged in the house serve two purposes. First, if chosen appropriately, the pillows will help the living space become more luxurious and elegant. Secondly, the pillows also help us feel comfortable when leaning on the couch, bringing a cozy feeling to the room.


You should choose pillows that are wide and soft enough to get a comfortable rest. In terms of size, choose a pillow with a large size, for example, a pillow that is about 22-24 inches in size. Large pillows create a very luxurious and elegant look, which is an indispensable element when you want to change the look of your home.


4. Window decoration

A house with unadorned windows will look downright ordinary. Fortunately, window decoration is quite economical, not only increasing the elegance of your home but also creating the necessary privacy space.


When choosing a window decoration method, make the right choices, and don't be too frugal. For example, choosing curtains that are too flimsy, or cheap will make the house lose its elegance. You should avoid transparent curtains, of course, you should not buy too thick curtains like those specialized to block the sun outdoors. Go to the curtain shops to choose the right quality curtains at an affordable price.


Consider some curtain fabrics like natural silk, linen, or cotton (polyester or man-made fabrics often look cheap). If you don't like fabric curtains, then try using bamboo or wooden blinds. Just make sure the type of curtain you choose is well-designed and fits the overall space.


5. Selection of quality, unique metal equipment

Buying metal appliances (door knobs, cabinet handles, metal faucets ...) in bulk, piles of fruit is very economical, but they are of poor quality and do not look luxurious. Spend a fair bit more money looking for better-looking, better-quality gear elsewhere.


Flea markets or antique stores are great places to find unique, sturdy, luxurious metal gadgets at affordable prices. These devices are small, but they are the objects that guests will come into contact with often, making your home more elegant.




6. Light bulbs make a difference

Most contractors will choose standard lighting equipment, hundreds of houses as one. The design of the lights is really important for the home space, specially designed lights will add more elegance to your home compared to standard lights. There are a few ways that you can buy unique, luxurious lights without spending too much. First, head to flea markets and second-hand stores. You will find unique lamps at an affordable price.


However, when buying lights at flea markets or second-hand stores, some lights will have to be reinforced and repainted a little to get a more luxurious appearance. The cost of this repair is very cheap, just 1 dollar, and you can make the item look worth a million!


In addition, consider arranging in the house many types of lights, many different lighting sources such as chandeliers, table lamps, tree lights, etc. to make the space look more elegant and luxurious.


7. Should use the wooden floor instead of carpet

Carpet helps to make the house cozy and soft, but it cannot make the house look as luxurious and elegant as using shiny wooden floors. Hardwood floors give the space a classic, elegant look, while also being affordable.


Installing laminate flooring for your home will be a significant investment, but it is certainly a wise one. Wood floors are very durable, can be used for a long time, and will help your home be more valuable if you transfer. Plywood is also an option, but be sure to purchase the best wood on the market to ensure lasting quality.


To make the most of your budget, consider different types of laminate flooring, some types of wood will be more expensive than others. For example, birch and oak are usually cheaper than cherry. Also, consider choosing dark colors for a more luxurious look.


8. Home decoration accessories

Most budget homes lack the necessary accessories to bring elegance to the space. Although the purchase of home accessories is quite expensive, the effect it brings is worth it. There are many ways to decorate your home accessories economically. For the house to have a luxurious look, pay attention to buying gold-colored accessories. Yellow gold always makes us think of wealth and prosperity. However, do not use too much gold in the same small space.

Some suggested gold accessories can be mentioned as picture frames, mirrors, coffee tables with yellow metal legs, etc.


9. Find good furniture at affordable prices

Many people feel that buying expensive couches is too expensive, but it is a fact that buying cheap furniture with low quality will cost you more.


If you want an elegant piece of furniture in your home, check out thrift stores and consignment stores to find good quality pieces at more affordable prices. You can slightly remodel these pieces of furniture to fit your space.


10. Always keep the house clean and tidy

There is a way to help you get a luxurious and elegant home without spending any money to clean and keep the house clean. Organize your furniture, and vacuum your home regularly.


Secondly, regular house cleaning also helps you to quickly detect and treat stains on the interior, keeping the interior from being damaged and looking ugly. Clean the windows, allowing natural light to flood the room, making the space brighter and fresher.


And finally, regular home cleaning keeps the furniture clutter-free. This will help you feel more comfortable about your home while allowing furniture such as pillows, accessories, etc to always stand out.
