8 Affordable & Easy Home Updates You Can Do On a Budget

by Simplify

There are many ways to do a home update without doing major renovations. If you want to refresh your space but you can’t afford a remodel there’s still a lot you can do. You might be surprised to see how much you can modernize your space on a budget.

We all know that we can paint our walls to refresh our space but there are many other things you can paint besides your walls. You can paint brick, tile, wood, you can even paint your floors. You can change almost everything about your space with paint.

Painting tile is something that a lot of people don't consider, but it's an incredible way to make a quick change. It's not a long-term solution, but it’s fast and can make a huge impact on your space. Consider that DIY method before ripping out your tile altogether.

Wood trim can be beautiful. You might want to keep it, but the color tones of old wood are probably dating your space.

Affordable and easy home updates

If you don’t want to paint the trimming, think about staining or whitewashing. These methods will drastically update your home. Stick with a neutral wood color to make your space look modern.

Plain, flat walls can look tired and outdated. Add trim and molding to your walls to make them look timeless, elegant, and more expensive.

This is something you can do on your own that is budget friendly and makes an extraordinary difference. You can measure and cut them yourself, or buy premade picture frame molding and install it with construction adhesive.
