Our homes are a big aspect of our life, we constantly look for ways to upgrading them as they basically represent ourselves and our lifestyle. Unfortunately, home upgrades can cost us a lot so most of us can’t really go big when it comes to upgrading, however, we can still make some cheaper improvements to make our homes appear expensive.
1. Evaluate the condition of the wallIt’s a good idea to get your walls checked if your house is old, sometimes worn out exterior walls can decrease the overall aesthetic appeal of the house, many people avoid this issue by undergoing cement rendering Sydney.
Many people can easily do this but it is better to get this done by a renderer instead, especially if you haven’t done this before. You could also consider acrylic rendering or adding an internal plaster through a method called white set.
2. Paint the placePainting your place can do wonders and can transform the entire look of the house? However, the color you paint it in contributes to the overall cost. If you are on a budget, then I suggest painting it in the existing color, this way you would only need a one coat paint, this saves you more paint and time. If you want to change the color of the exterior wall, then opt for a darker color, a lighter color would require more coats and a lot more work to make it work.
3. Plant more flowers If you have a front yard, consider planting some flowers to add color to your house from the outside. You need to buy a few flower pots and water them regularly. These flowers would end up attracting birds and butterflies to your garden thus livening it up. Ensure that you avoid flowers that attract bees as this can be a nuisance.
4. Update or service your furnitureTry changing your furniture or changing the furniture covers, this would make it appear new. Replace things like door handles, light fixtures, and faucets. Have a look at your bathroom too, sometimes a layer of grout and caulk can help improve it. The bathroom is the most important room in a house during sales so it is vital to keep it in good condition.The tips given above are a cheaper alternative to a full house renovation, you won’t be making major changes to the house but you can still get the outcome you desire by just updating the existing features of the house
