I’ve often been asked the question “How can I make my house look good without money?” This is a good question. There are many ways to update and add new life into old houses without breaking the bank. If you have a property in London and have plans of doing some serious redecorating, but can’t seem to afford the fees, then I’ve got just the thing for you. In this article I’ll tell you how I renovated a house without spending a cent.
Basic Renovation Steps
If you’re thinking “I’m… That’s great… That would be perfect for me” but don’t hold your breath there. You can still do a major renovation without breaking the bank if you know what you’re doing. The first thing I did when I decided to do a renovation on a property was to search the internet for inspiration.
I spent hours looking at pictures of houses that were similar to the one I wanted to improve. One in particular that I really liked was the one in Willesden Green. After looking at over 50 pictures I was convinced it was a good place to start my refurbishment. Looking at the photos, I could already see some obvious improvements that new build building company Croydon make – such as the amount of space available inside the house. The floor would need to be divided up into smaller and more tightly placed rooms, while the kitchen needed to look bigger and uncluttered.
When I visited the property in person, I was even more inspired. Not only was the place very nice looking but the renovation went very smoothly. It was like someone had already done all the hard work for me. Looking at the property again, and comparing it to my original designs, I think I’m actually going to get the house painted again! What can I say about this project?
How can I make my house look good without money? Start by choosing a contractor who is going to charge you a fair price for his time. Look at a few contractors and find one who has a great reputation. Find out what their estimated costs are and compare them to the prices you have seen online. If you can afford to spend a bit more, then by all means do so. It is important that you make a quality build to get a good price when you finally decide to commit to paying for the project.
Theme for Your House
Next you need to decide on a theme for your house. This isn’t as important as it used to be. There are now so many different themes available that it almost doesn’t matter what design you want anymore. It’s not enough you want to have a good looking house anymore than you want to change it up every couple of years. You will want to make your house unique so people want to stay there.
The last thing you want to do to make your house look good is to have everything in the right place. Whether you put in carpet or not, if you have furniture wrong, your house will look strange. Put in furniture where it makes sense. Get rid of things you don’t need or use and collect things that you don’t need or use and put them somewhere else in the house.
So, you have some good ideas on how you can make your house look good with no money. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and don’t be afraid to spend a little money if you have to. If you don’t need the house to keep your stuff in, you will still be very happy with the results.
