About Me

Home Remodeling Tips When I purchased my second home after outgrowing my starter home, I was absolutely in love with it. However, after moving in, I quickly realized how much I missed having a master bathroom. I didn't think I would miss it, since the nearest bathroom is right down the hall, but since I frequently have guests over for long weekends, I realized that we were "fighting" for much-needed bathroom space. I then looked into my remodeling options and a contractor told me that adding a master bath would be a very easy task to complete. The remodeling process didn't take long, and my home is now perfect. I am very eager to share what I learned about home remodeling with others who need the tips on my new blog!




If you are looking for a house and you discover a home that is the right price, but is really ugly, you might feel like passing it up. However, there is no reason to do so. There are many inexpensive home renovation ideas that can make your ugly home beautiful on a budget.

Display Dinnerware

When you have beautiful dinnerware, look for a way to display it. You can build an inexpensive set of shelves and hang them from the wall. Then, your guest will be eager to have dinner.

Replace Outdated Furniture

Look for any furniture that is outdated or damaged and begin replacing it. While a couch might be relatively expensive, there are other types of furniture that are not as expensive to replace.

When you are adding furniture, if you can make it fit perfectly, your furniture will look much better. For example, if you measure your bookshelves and they can fit perfectly in a particular spot, this will make your home look much better. 

Replace Old Carpeting

If the carpet is old, replace it. The carpet takes up a lot of visual space, so if the carpeting is ugly, you will have a difficult time beautifying your home without replacing it. 

Replace Boring Throw Pillows

If you don't have throw pillows, add them. If you already have throw pillows, replace them. Throw pillows are a great way to add color to an otherwise drab room. Another option is to buy new pillow covers. 

Rely On Nature

Nature sometimes comes with free ways that you can decorate your home. For example, you might find a beautiful branch that you can hang on a wall. If you have a friend with a house plant, ask for a clipping so you can grow a house plant for free.

Add Molding

If your walls are bare, consider adding molding. Otherwise, your walls can look very boring. The molding can be very simple, or you can aim for a more ornate, Victorian-style molding. 

Replace Old Fixtures.

If you notice any fixtures that are old or outdated, replace them. For example, if a door has a doorknob that looks worn, replace it. If you hate how the knobs on your cabinet doors look, these are very inexpensive to replace. With these inexpensive ways to beautify your home, you will be able to wait until it is time to commit to more serious home renovations.
