So you have recently shifted into your new home. Or maybe your present home is beginning to look a bit bland and needs a sprinkle of much-needed home improvement. Now, not everyone is a Van Gogh with their paintbrush. And not everyone has the budget to get professionals or buy expensive furniture. If you belong to either of these categories, then you have come to the right place. With our easy guide, you can spruce up your home on your own with no outsider help!
1. Set a modest budget
The secret to successfully budgeting when it comes to home improvement is to fly just near the sun. Don’t fly too high or you’ll burn your wallet, and don’t fly so low that you get a low-quality result. When it comes to your home, you can neither be a spendthrift nor a cheapskate. Just set your budget somewhere in between, and both your wallet and your home will be happy.
2. Set small goals
If this is your first time doing home improvement, then start with something small. Don’t make tall plans of painting Starry Sky in your living room just now. Instead, start with simple patterns like colorful horizontal or vertical lines. Just make sure that the colors you choose are complementary to each other, and your walls will glow. If you are worried about what colors are right for your home’s walls, then don’t worry. We’ll cover picking the perfect wall colors in the next point.
3. Go with the reliable colors
If you are new to something, then it is best to not experiment too much. Just stick to the basics first and then slowly start tampering with the things around. The same goes for beginners in home improvement. Don’t pick exotic colors for your first wall-painting job. The most reliable combination is black and white. If you want to play completely safe, this is the color combination for you. Up on the list, we also have indigo and white, another safe option. Lastly, if you want something a bit daring but still fairly reliable, go with lime green and wisely pink.
Home improvement can look too scary to do by yourself and too expensive to hire an interior designer for. With this easy guide, we hope you can liven up your home and not spend an extra penny on it. Not to mention, working on your home can become a whole family activity, making it even more worthwhile for you!
