Real Estate Agent

If you've been living in the same house for many years or plan to sell your house soon, it's time to remodel it. But this doesn't necessarily have to translate to a ton of money, time, and effort as there are many small changes that will cost little to nothing and can give a whole new look to your home décor.

Here are a few tips to remodel your house even when you're on a shoestring budget.


Proper lighting can truly enhance a place and make it more appealing and livable. That said, the brightness and tone of light should be appropriate for that given area. For example, you need soft bulbs that give out a yellowish tone for living rooms where people hang out a lot whereas your library and study room should have bright light with blue undertones. Knowing the right light for every part of your house will go a long way in sprucing up your room without having to spend a lot of money.

Arched windows

While this may seem a bit odd at first, the truth is that arched windows are inexpensive and can add a lot of variation to your living space. Arched windows allow lots of light to come into your room and at the same time, will decorate the space naturally. In fact, these windows can be a decorative accessory by itself and can make a room more attractive and inviting. The best part is you can choose from a wide range of arched window designs such as elliptical, round, oval, and more.


Let's face it! No one likes to walk into a room that so full of things that there is hardly any space to move about. Even if those things are arranged neatly, it can still make the place feel overwhelming. Instead of spending money on so many things, pick a simple décor and add a few items that go well with that décor.

However, this doesn't mean you should throw away what you have and buy new ones. Simply rearrange your existing items and use a lot of shapes to add depth to the look and feel of a room. You can even mix and match items and colors to improve your décor. If you're good at making new things, this is also the place to showcase your creativity.


An often overlooked aspect of redesigning a home is painting. This is an inexpensive way to add rich colors and a bout of freshness to your home. You can paint your walls and cabinets with the colors of your choice to give them a new lease of life and make them look like new. When you choose the right colors for each room, the paint can truly make your space highly livable and inviting.

Thus, these are some of the top tips when it is time to bring a new look to your home without spending too much money and time.
