10 Tips to Revamp Your Old House
Planning to refurbish your old house? Wish to paint it new? Have a look at the 10 simple tips given below and revamp your house, without creating a hole in your pocket.
1. Plan well
The first and foremost thing that you need to do before revamping your house is plan, plan and plan! You need to chalk out a plan that includes the estimated time you want to employ to refurbish your house, the budget, the rooms which need to be revamped first and so on. When a plan is ready, half the job is done.
2. Control expenses
Whoever said a beautiful home takes shape only when you pour lots of money on it? This notion is totally wrong. You can take control of the budget by doing simple things like not assigning the revamping task to an interior designer. Instead buy things on your own. Consult a friend before hiring men. Negotiate on their quotation.
This one is on the lines of the budget and the plan. You need to check out if you want to revamp the whole house at one go or want to do it part by part. If you choose the latter option, you must prioritize each room over the other and then start the job. For example, the kitchen should be revamped first or the master bedroom first, the kitchen after it and the refurbishment should end with the living room.
4. Throw out
When you actually begin with the task of revamping, first throw out old stuff. It doesn’t matter if your house is actually big or small, it must look big. The simple way to make it look big is by keeping open spaces in your house. For this, you must first put things which you don’t need out of the house.
5. Do not dump
Many people have this habit of picking up things from here and keeping them there. Eventually, they tend to dump everything in one corner. Days after, it becomes a task to sort these things and put them in their place. Hence, it is important to note, even when your house is being refurbished, keep it organized. This will help you when you actually reorganize it after the revamping is over.
