A well-designed home has a comfortable and welcoming feeling that encourages you to settle in for a while. The colors are soothing, the atmosphere calming, and furniture placement inviting. Although your home may not be right out of the pages of a fashion magazine, it can still have the look and feel of an updated modern home without costing you a fortune. Here are three ways to update your home that won’t cost a fortune.
1. Create an Outdoor Space
Decks, patios, and outdoor gardens expand the usable room your home provides by allowing you to lounge, relax, or spend family time outdoors for many months of the year. The spot can be a simple area filled with netting and chairs, or you can become extravagant and create an actual screened in room with an outdoor kitchen with the help of a home remodeling Austin team.
2. Update the Indoor Lighting
When you walk into a well-lit room, it is instantly inviting, so updating your home’s lighting can bring the areas to life. Using track lighting, tall flooring lamps, or side table lamps can all bring light to the dark corners of any room. If your home is already well-lit, why not change the lighting fixture to make them more modern and add more personality to your home.
3. Check the Kitchen Cabinets
Everyone says that kitchens are the heart of the home, so why not update your home’s heart with some new colors on your cabinet doors, some glass doors, or some new door handles and drawer pulls. You may be surprised at what a little bit of paint can do to lighten the room but adding some light inside some glass faced cabinets or under the cabinets can also add a modern splash.
Updating your kitchen doesn’t have to cost a fortune. You can create an outdoor space, update the kitchen, or add indoor lighting for a more modern and welcoming atmosphere for your entire home.
