3 ways to keep to a budget when transforming your kitchen
October 31, 2018
Budgets are a downer to any redo, we’ve gathered 3 ways to use discount décor and trick your way into the kitchen of your dreams without having the salary of your dreams.
Do handyman work yourself It’s amazing what just a few tools, a YouTube tutorial and a bit of time can do. Leave the big things to the professionals, but there’s no reason to call someone out for doing a bit of light painting.
Stay simple and don’t overcomplicate A lick of paint and a couple new decorations can do wonders for uplifting a room. Pick small and cheap things to change while keeping the expensive kitchen staples the same, to give the whole room a different perspective. Appliances can also be painted over to give them a new lease on life!
Use affordable appliances Designer products are great, but there’s often cheaper versions of whatever look you’re after available for a cut cost price. Recycle and make yourself for even more low-cost options! Second hand stoves, fridges and ovens are a great way to get a discount on something that’s typically a very expensive necessary part of a kitchen.
Christmas can seem forced, everybody’s favourite holiday is great and all, but exactly what about that plastic reindeer screams Christmas spirit, Deborah? If you’re tired of cheesy and pointless decorations; maybe it’s time to look for something more unique or handmade to add a real touch of magic to Christmas. You’re in the right place!
We’re officially in December, and that means chocolate, snow, lights and new stuff. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the presents, but there’s no shame in getting a little something for yourself either! If you shop now, most furniture and decorations will be there before grandma arrives.
If you find yourself wishing “if you only I had more time to spruce up before the mother in law comes over”, worry no longer! Everyone has 5 minutes each day to get a few things done that can completely change a room for the better. Set a timer before you get to work to make sure you’re not getting bogged down on one thing, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish in so little time!
