10 Home Improvement Ideas for Every Budget

As interior designers, our job is not just to style a house but to make it look and feel special for you- a home that you would love to be in, a place you would soulfully flaunt before your family and friends. It does not matter whether you live in a small apartment or a huge mansion, making an impact is important.

Well, in my opinion, it isn't necessary to redo the entire house at one go, but few home improvement ideas will surely bring about the desired effects.

Having said so, there is one more thing to be kept in mind as well, and that is the amount of money you are willing to invest in the renovation.

So, here I would like to jot down few home improvement ideas that would do the desired trick, no matter what your budget is:-

1. Go Shopping:

Well no points for guessing, but obviously this is the first thing to do. Shop artwork and frames from discounted stores or fancy outlets, whichever suits you best. Look for suitable places on the wall to hang them. These are going to make a huge difference to your rooms.

2. Splash Greens:

Add greens, in the form of ferns, bamboo palms, canes, small plants and herbs on pots or decorative vases, for that extra color and freshness. Place them in the living room, bedroom, near windows or even in the kitchen.

3. Bring in Some Variety:

Variously colored and designed accent throw pillows do wonders for your sofa and bed.

4. Re-do the Layout of Your Room:

Re-arrange existing furniture within the room or try bringing furnishings from other rooms. And if it's on your list, then you can buy something new as well. If there is a chest of drawers, try placing the TV on it or the wall above it.

5. Keep Rooms as Bright as Possible:

Try out new light fixtures if there aren't any yet. Use candles, especially the white colored ones to bring about an amazing brightness.

6. Opt for Proper Window Treatments:

You do get ready-made ones at the store. But if you are on a budget, you could also add frames above the windows to add height to the room and make for easy home improvements that add value to a home.

7. Using Headboards Make for an Important Home Improvement Idea:

Give your bedroom a high focal point with headboards of different sizes, shapes, and colors. They could be in contrast to the wall paint or in-sync with it.

8. Try this Sophisticated Look:

Mix patterns in neutral colors, add magnificent mirrors, subtle chandeliers to your living room or bedroom thus scintillating an incredible touch of elegance.

10. Try Curvy-shaped Furniture:

Pin-leg furniture especially chairs and tables are absolute crowd pullers as they give a curvaceous look, add space and make rooms look large. You can get pin-leg beds and bathtubs as well.
