For many people, nothing is more personal than being the proud owner of a clean, warm, home. Homeowners take pride in making a home feel welcoming to both their families and to outside guests. If you are a homeowner, chances are you are always looking for new ways to make it feel cosier. Over time, you may want to transform your home but a major renovation in the United Kingdom can cost up to £30,000 or more. Here are some affordable ways to transform your home without breaking the bank.
Move Things Around
The cheapest way is to move things around the house. You do not need to buy new things. If fact, you may need to get rid of non-essential items that take up space. By moving things around such as the seating arrangements and other furniture, you create a new look for your living space. In the process, you may come across items you do not really need. Items you may choose to sell in a yard sale. Instead of spending money, you will be earning and transforming your home at the time.
Light It Up
Sometimes, all you need to do is change the lighting in your home. The right kinds of lighting can completely change the way your home feels. Lighting professionals create different moods for each room in a house. You may do the same. Use bedside lamps to create a subtle, cosy, romantic atmosphere in your bedroom. In the living room, use floor lamps or overhead lighting to create the perfect glow at the corners. To save money from buying more lamps, consider replacing your current light bulbs to warmer colours. Spares2You offers a variety of light bulbs, including appliance lamps, which can be purchased from the convenience of your home and delivered to your doorstep.
Gardening and Landscaping
Gardens, whether in front or behind your home, have the ability to create a refreshing environment that is perfect for a relaxing outdoors. If gardening is not your thing, do not build it because hiring a gardener to maintain it costs about £100-£150 per day. As a UK resident, chances are you have a lawn. Maintaining a clean landscape is the first thing you and your guests will notice every time you arrive home. The secret to maintaining the perfect lawn is using lightweight grass trimmers. Flymo Strimmers spares are some of the best in the market. As part of its wide variety of spare accessories, Spares2You offers Flymo Strimmers spares such as the spool and line, replacement cables, spool cover, trimmer lines and much more. Once or twice a month, find time on the weekends to landscape your lawn and have fun while at it.
All the above will mean nothing if, at the end of the day, your home is not tidy. Always keep it clean. If you live with family, encourage a neat culture to make everyone responsible for maintaining a clean and elegant home. Neat and clean space will always make your home to feel brand new.
