There are so many ways to upgrade your home to look beautiful, but many are expensive. Luckily, not every decision you make in your home remodel needs to be high end, a space can be beautified even on a tight budget. Today we are sharing where we like to splurge and ways to save in the home.
SPLURGE ON YOUR MOST USED SPACES
Most of us spend a lot of time in the kitchen and main living areas of our home. If this is where you are spending your time, this is where you should spend your budget. Plus, a new kitchen is great for resale. Consider quality custom cabinetry that will hold up to use and is built out to maximize the utility of your kitchen. If it’s in your budget, splurge on beautiful tile for your backsplash. Although an inexpensive subway tile is fresh, classic, and a great choice, a tile upgrade can elevate your space and make it feel like it was created by a designer.
SAVE BY GIVING OLD FLOORS A SECOND LIFE
Instead of installing high-end hardwood floors, you can purchase affordable bamboo and then coat it with white epoxy. Don’t live with beat up wood or cheap vinyl that you hate, while you save up for your dream hardwood, paint over what’s there in a color you love for an instant room refresh.
SAVE ON STYLING DETAILS
Beautiful decor pieces can cost a lot, especially if you are redoing an entire room at once. This is a great place to save money. Keep things sparse, or look for inexpensive pieces and then upgrade slowly as you can. This process of collecting lets you easily evolve the look with the seasons and helps you eventually get a layered, authentic look full of items you love.
SPLURGE ON QUALITY SOFAS IN YOUR LIVING SPACES
Sofas take a lot of abuse, especially if you have kids. Although inexpensive ones might look just as good in the store, cheap fabric and construction won’t hold up for long. Splurge for a high quality sofa from a reputable store using washable, stain-resistant upholstery. Our favorite trick is to use indoor/outdoor Perennials fabric that can easily be wiped down.
SPLURGE ON STATEMENT LIGHTING
In any room in your home, lighting can make a major statement. We love the way it can define an entire space, or be the perfect accent that ties different elements together. There are lots of affordable lighting options nowadays, but that does not mean they are the best quality.
