The essential thing to remember about home improvement is to make it as easy on yourself as possible. Many people can just hire interior designers, but not every person has the budget for such a luxury, especially after getting a new house built. So here are a few affordable ways to refurbish your new home at a minimal cost and with just some imagination.

1)Stone Makeover

Sure, marble looks classy and beautiful, but not everyone can afford to have it in their home. Or maybe you forgot to leave enough space for a marble flooring before construction. So, let’s just replace using marble with another stone like granite. It may not seem like that much, but it has a rough and rustic look that lends character to space and certainly costs a lot less than marble.

2)Retro Wallpaper

Wallpapers have been rising in popularity again these days due to their retro look and stores now offer an expanded range of choices at very affordable rates. Also, you don’t have to cover every single wall to make an impact, just the ones that will catch people’s attention. This is especially in case of a room with plain walls. Some papers can be hard to use so read the hanging instructions carefully. Also, be sure to fill out any dents or holes in your wall to have a smooth surface before you try hanging up the wallpaper.

3)Rail Track Lighting

Track lighting lets you highlight specific nooks and crannies of your home, be it a picture frame on a wall or a vase on a table and illuminates just about any area. They usually use halogen lights that illuminate colours vividly. The price of such devices has drastically reduced in recent years and now most run on a standard voltage. The rail system is attached to the ceiling and holds the halogen bulbs. Some rail systems can also be bent into a customisable shape for a more aesthetic look and give the house a more decorative appearance.

4)Closet Organizer

Having a neat and ordered closet is something we all wish for, but few usually have. Well, then all you have to do is to get yourself a wire shelving system. These are inexpensive, efficient and require almost no effort to install. Also, since everything hangs off the wall, it’ll be easier to dust and clean. They also come with a lot of add-on storage options such as shoe racks, tie and belt racks and various baskets, making the best possible use of space in the house.

5) Rollout Cabinets

These are easily one of the most satisfying upgrades you can make to your house, especially your kitchen. Usually, cabinets have a lot of wasted space deep inside. Rollouts turn that wasted space into usable storage space. You won’t even need to make any significant modifications as they can be simply mounted onto existing shelves in the cabinet. Just make sure to get the one with the correct dimensions and account for the door, the cabinet length and breadth and other possible obstructions.
