Remodeling can be an expensive, labor-intensive project.It is one which most people can’t afford every time they feel like changing things up a bit. When you can’t afford to remodel or it’s simply not practical at the time, you can achieve the change you’re looking for without spending any money at all. Here’s how:
1. Change The Function Of A Few Rooms
To give your home a completely new feel, change the function of two or more rooms. Turn a bedroom into an office or the dining room into a living room. You might also combine two rooms into one, leaving you an entirely empty one to do as you wish with.
2. Rearrange All Your Furniture
Rearranging is a great way to change things up, especially if you have a good sense of style with decor. Place your sofa in the middle of the room, rather than against a wall, and see where that leads. Don’t be afraid to try new things, even if they seem odd, because decor, as with any art, doesn’t follow a strict set of rules. Rather, the beauty is all in the eye of the beholder, you!
3. Trade With Friends
A fun and free way to redecorate is to trade furnishings with friends so long as you have similar tastes. Even if you don’t, having something new in the home is better than feeling stagnant and in need of change. Mix, match and make your home into something unique and unexpected. You could try the switch on a temporary basis, too, in case one or both of you change your mind later on. Not interested in trading with friends? Visit the local thrift shop and see what they have for cheap!
Change is good, especially around the home. It invigorates you, immediately providing a reward for all your work. When you can’t pay for a big remodel, opt for change anyway, only without the hefty price tag.
