Five Ways You Can Enhance Your Home Without Breaking The Bank

Five Ways You Can Enhance Your Home Without Breaking The Bank
  • Opening Intro -

    If you're tired of the same-old living space and feel like moving out, or perhaps you've just moved to a new home and looking to spice up your surroundings, it's time to start experimenting with some cost-efficient and highly effective home upgrades.


A great way to enrich your living area and add a dash of diversity and refreshment for a pleasant change, these five imaginative and simple home upgrades will definitely take your indoor experience to a whole new level and enhance your everyday life in a flash, without the need for extensive renovation investments in terms of project costs, effort and time required.

The light within: A revamped lighting system


In a world of shrinking habitable space and endlessly growing cities overcrowded with apartment blocks, most modern homes suffer from a chronic lack of light. In case your home could do with a fresh lighting system, throw in some table or tall floor lamps. Available in most home centers and antique shops, small but carefully arranged lamps can help achieve a sense of warmth, comfort and airiness. Place floor lamps in dark corners and arrange table lamps on side tables and watch your house come to life.

A fresh touch: Update doors and windows


One frequently overlooked aspect in modern homes, windows and doors need some tender, love and care to create a fresh, inviting and cozy indoor atmosphere. For a welcoming home ambiance, apply a fresh layer of paint on your doors and window frames. In case the surface is all patchy and coming off at the edges, make sure you remove the peeling layer with a sander or scraper before applying a fresh paint coat. Also, consider throwing in some rich drapes, curtains or bamboo shades to add a sense of privacy and refinement to your living space.

Reorganize and Declutter

This is a rather simple way to enhance the flow of energy in your home, getting rid of old and useless things that only take up your precious available space. Old clothes, magazines, forgotten items sitting in boxes for years, filter through everything and discard as much as you can. The resulting effect will not only be a spatial one, but probably psychological also, as you will break free from the old and embrace the new.

All the colors of the rainbow: Wallpapers and wall paint


Sick of seeing dull white walls everywhere you look? Then try applying a fresh paint or wallpaper number to your living area. When choosing wall paint for your home, pick light, creamy tones like soft peach, beige or sky blue and add accents in bright tones for a touch of diversity and interest. Similarly, when shopping for wallpapers, pick patterns that are not overly garish and vivid since too much color can prove counter effective and make your home look cramped or distasteful.

Gadgets galore: Entertainment at a press of a button


A slightly more expensive home upgrade project, modern gadgets and gizmos can help improve living quality at a simple press of a button. For instance, installing a home theatre system can turn your living room into a private cinema where you and your children can spend hours watching family movies, and a quality surround sound system can render a whole new dimension to your music listening sessions. Get a quality tv package like Telstra Foxtel and enjoy countless hours of fun.

You don’t have to break the bank to upgrade your home – one or several of these small-scope projects may do the trick just fine and turn your home into a place of ease, pleasure and safety, quickly and efficiently.
