1. Bathroom Makeover
One of the rooms that you would surely want to be presentable is the bathroom, especially when you have guests, who will use it. The very first thing that usually gets broken is the faucet and the sink because we often use it. Simply get the best bathroom faucet and ask a plumber for help, if you are not sure about how to do it. After he finished the task, you can do the rest.
Pretty sure that you can manage to paint the walls as well as the mirror’s edge. Make sure that the mirror would look stunning because your guests will surely look at the mirror to make sure that they look fresh. Now, let’s recycle the old stuffs at home. Get some empty bottles with different sizes and color. Mount it and use as a décor on the wall. You can do this job in just a day. You will not even spend $100 for this.
2. Living Room Wall
We all know that buying paintings for your living room would be very expensive. So, let us try to make a wall décor that will replace a painting. The first thing that you need to do is to buy a big size poster or the ones with different sizes. And then, you also need a firm board and a plastic cover. Make sure that the size of the poster will fit on the board.
Paste your poster on the board and cover it with plastic. Now, try to be artistic and act like an interior designer. Mount the posters on the wall depending on how would you like it to be, such as diagonal, V-shape or horizontal.
If you do not want to add posters, then you just need to change the wall cover or paint it with a color that would look the room bright. You may buy wall covers made of plastic or paper material. Just choose the one that is cheaper and affordable.
Hallways must have lights. Actually, you do not need to buy floor lamps or replace them when they are broken. All you need is to ask help from an electrician to install new lights on the hallway. You may choose to mount the light on the walls or hang them like a chandelier. It would be best to also ask an electrician’s suggestion to know what materials are needed. It would be cheaper, if you would be the one to buy them.
You do not need a really huge terrace. You do not also need to construct it. You can make an improvise terrace-garden. All you need to do is to get some pots with flowers. Arrange the pots according to the size that you want. You may go for a rectangular, oval or a semi-circular shape.
Make sure to have an opening for your entry. This point may be coming from the back or front of your doorstep. Add some rocks for the pathway. In the middle of your terrace-garden, must be a table with some chairs or stools. Do not forget to get an empty wine bottle and some flowers in it.
Those are just a few of the home improvement projects that you may try at home. Do not worry about your expenses because you will not surely spend much on these projects. Just be patient and give some time to do it. Pretty sure that it would be a success.
