DIY Home Fixes That Won’t Break The Bank

Although renovating your home can definitely be quite pricey, it’s not always going to be in the budget to spend upwards of thousands to get the things done that you need or want done in your house, so what’s the solution? Of course, it always depends on what exactly is needing to be done, what renovations are needed, and also what kind of budget you’re working with. You can certainly go ahead and ask for a loan for bigger renovations and some banks, will offer loans specifically for this purpose, and typically bank loans will have a much lower rate of interest than independent loan companies.

However, a loan isn’t always an option, and in some cases you may not even feel like you need or want a loan, but this also doesn’t mean that you want to spend years saving up to get the work needed to be done, so in this case you could look at going it alone and doing a lot of the work yourself, which honestly isn’t even as difficult as you think – depending on what it is, and can certainly save you a lot more money than hiring people to do it for you.

So, in this post, I’ll share a few DIY home fixes and renovations you can do that won’t break the bank.

Paint furniture:

If you have some good quality furniture that you really love, but you feel like it’s starting to look a bit worn and could use a new look, then you should into things like furniture paint instead of going and buying all new furniture. You can buy paint especially for certain types of furniture that are dependent on the material, and you can even give your kitchen and bathroom cupboards a refreshing new look with some good quality paint.

Paint walls:

Paint for walls is one of the most affordable and accessible products available when it comes to home decor and renovation, so if you’re just looking for a bit of a freshen up, then this is a good way to go and you can find lots of inspiration for colors and styles just by looking online or even in-store to see what you might like.

Shampoo carpets:

Carpets can be great – especially in colder climates where hardwood or tiled flooring may feel cold, but the downside of carpet is that it gets dirty and worn out very fast and you can’t just run a mop and some disinfectant along it like you can with other types of flooring. However, carpets – especially good quality ones can be expensive, so instead of buying a whole new one, then looking for some carpet cleaning services in your area that would shampoo the carpet for you professionally can really make all the difference.

Fix up your garden:

A garden is often a place that gets forgotten about, but it’s a pretty important part of house, and if you ever want to sell, then it’s a huge selling point, so simply adding some nice furniture and making sure the grass is kept neatly cut can really improve the look of your garden without spending a lot of money.

  1. Great post! I’m starting to read posts related to interior design as I’m moving to my first house ever alone by the end of this year, so scary and hard to budget as well. Will definitely follow for future posts!

    1. Thank you so much! Congratulations on your first house! That’s really exciting! I definitely understand how scary it is, I bought my first place 8 months ago and I’m still adjusting to living on my own for the first time. It’s not as hard as it seems, maybe in the beginning, but it definitely gets better! 🙂
