5 Tips To Give Your Home A Facelift

  • Highlights

  • Start by taking care of necessary repairs

  • Repaint or wallpaper your home for a fresh look

  • Upgrade furniture to increase comfort and improve the ambience

  • Consider taking a top-up loan to finance these changes

Giving your home a new look is beneficial in two ways: it increases the value of your home if you are considering selling it, and it also makes it more comfortable for you to live in. To finance the necessary repairs or to simply beautify your home, consider a top-up loan that you can avail as an add-on to your home loan. This will make all your home improvement upgrades easier on your pocket.
Here are 5 tips to give your home a face-lift.

Re-arrange furniture to make your home look spacious

Re-arranging furniture can help make your home appear much more spacious. For example, you can shift your refrigerator from the living room to the kitchen, thereby freeing up space in the common area. You can also deep-clean your house and put items that you don’t use in storage.

Identify concerns and have them repaired

If you have been living in your home for a few years, you might encounter problems like leakages, creaking doors or faulty switches.

Identify these problems and repair them so that they don’t escalate further. For example, water seeping in through the walls can cause the paint to peel off. So, nip these problems in the bud to ensure that your home is in top shape.

Use wallpapers for an instant makeover

While painting your home can make it look beautiful, it can take up too much time. An alternative to this is using wallpapers or a combination of the two. You can also use wallpapers to create a focal point in a particular room. Wallpapers cost around Rs.80 per square feet, with an additional charge for application, whereas painting costs start at around Rs.21 per square feet.

How to Make Home Renovation Budget Friendly

Add new furniture

Furniture can change the look and feel of a room in an instant and increase your comfort by leaps and bounds. Consider adding a mix of seating options such as sofas, armchairs, and footstools and accentuate the room with rugs and carpets. A new sofa will cost you around Rs.50,000, while an area rug will cost you around Rs.5,000.

Create a garden

Having a garden in your home will improve its visual appeal and it will also give you a place to relax and unwind. You can also create a garden with the intent of growing your own vegetables, fruits and flowers. If you want a basic green patch, consider laying carpet grass that costs around Rs.5–Rs.20 per square foot. But, if you want to go all out, you can hire a landscape artist, add a fountain for around Rs.30,000, or add a pebbled pathway. You can also choose to use bonsai plants, which will cost you around Rs.3,800 per plant.
