Modern farmhouse driveway ideas

 

Whatever your reasons for renovating your property, whether it’s to make your home more comfortable or to get a better selling price, you need to approach it as a project. Try to take the emotion out of it all initially, so you can make logical decisions based on facts and figures.

These are some great ways to make your renovation project easier – and cheaper.

 

Pin down your budget

The first thing to do is to find out how much you have to spend, so take some time to visit Creditfix to get budgeting tips and even a handy calculator. Always try to stay conservative – if you think you’ll have somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000 to spend on your new bathroom, then assume it’s $10,000 and work from that figure.

Do your homework

If you’ve seen an amazing shower cubicle that’s just out of your reach, then see if you can find it elsewhere for less. Another good idea is to visit showrooms to see if they’re planning to change their displays over in the next couple of months. Ex-display fittings are cheap and you never know – you might find your shower cubicle! Look online, in reclamation yards and in physical stores.

Start with your front door

Rustic shutters

Your front door is your first impression, so it’s a good job that it’s easy to either repaint or replace. The effect it has on your kerb appeal is great, especially if you polish or replace your brass fittings too.

Think about your colour scheme

Most renovations involve new paint and new colour schemes. Think about the effect you want to achieve in each room, as well as how big or cosy you want each space to feel. If all else fails, opt for white and black or white and dark grey for a modern, clean look.

Small doesn’t have to stay that way

If you’re working with a small room then you can use lighter-coloured paints and mirrors to create the illusion of open space. Mirrors are especially good for adding interest and a sense of opulence to a room.

Your kitchen and storage spaces

You’re probably looking to refresh and improve your storage solutions and spaces with your renovation. A good way to do this is to maximize the amount of smart storage you have. Older styles of storage tend to be clumsy and take up more space than they can actually justify, whereas modern storage solutions are designed with smaller spaces in mind and lend themselves perfectly to kitchens. This is one area where you can spend a bit, as a functional, sleek and modern kitchen is a major selling point.

Look at your windows

Ideally, you should install bigger windows, but if you’re on a budget this might not be possible. What you can do is tidy up the frames by stripping and repainting them in a lighter shade than before. You can also paint the recesses a lighter shade than the rest of the walls, or even add mirrors for a stunning effect. This can really open out a space.

Renovating your bathroom

This is another room in which you can mix expensive and cheap fixtures, as many bathroom products are off-brand. You could replace the toilet, shower and sink quite cheaply, as well as add in some high-end trimmings like faucets and new tiles.
