Getting a luxury look can come at a price but there are tricks to make a home look luxurious without breaking the budget. People that have some home improvement skills can do quite a lot. There are some tips below that will require a professional like that of laying floor tile. The last thing you want is a disjointed look on the floor so make sure you have an expert help you. Completing a project per month or saving up for a month or two for a project can have your home looking luxurious in the matter of a year. Saving money for projects to improve the value/look of the home is the best investment of this money in many cases. The following are tips to get that luxury look without paying a premium cost.
Refinish Your Bathroom
Refinishing your bathroom will likely include the shower and some sink refinishing. The bathroom can be an immensely expensive room to gut as plumbing makes it a sensitive project. A pipe bursting without a licensed plumber in the immediate area can lead to mold and potential water damage. The countertops being refinished can allow the entire bathroom to look updated. Look up the top refinishing companies in your area to compare the quality of work/prices.
Faux Wood Tile
The classic look of a wood floor can come with quite a bit of maintenance. For those people that have pets or children, the flooring can be damaged quickly. Luckily, there is flooring that looks like wood but is actually tile. Tiles rarely crack if installed correctly and are quite easy to maintain/clean. The durability is not the only benefit but this flooring is much cheaper than real wooden flooring. Carpet can look like a classic look as well but it is tough to clean and shows stains easily. Take the time to look at a variety of tile options to see if you find something that not only looks classic but is also affordable on a lower budget.
Invest a Little Money into Landscaping
Investing money into landscaping can finally give your home the feeling of privacy that you have wanted for years. Putting up tall bushes not only provides privacy but it also enhances security. Burglars go into homes where they can easily see valuables and see their exit. A landscaping company can be an affordable option and can plant different flowers that bloom during specific times of the year. Do not underestimate the curb appeal of a home making it look luxurious and all neighbors appreciate a maintained lawn.
The Right Lighting Works Wonders
Taking a look at the current lighting in the home can be important as the brighter a room seems, the larger it appears. For some people, this could require trimming branches near windows while others should have brighter lights installed. Natural light is always something that buyers discuss rooms so keep this in mind.
Make a Statement with Art!
The right piece of art can really pull a room together and make it seem far fancier than it actually is. An antique of some kind can also be a topic of conversation along with making a space look classic. Art does not have to be expensive but should match the décor of the rest of the room. A bright piece of art in a dark room might stand out in the wrong fashion.
Your budget doesn’t have to be outrageous in order to complete all of these projects/additions in a year. Save money with the goal of adding to the investment you have in your home.
