There is no getting away from the bills if you’re a homeowner. Whether it is paying for the electricity or essential repairs, the costs add up. But, does that mean your house shouldn’t look its best because you don’t have the money? Of course it doesn’t as home restoration doesn’t have to be expensive. As it turns out, you can make your home shine on a very tight budget. All you need to do is take a look at the tips below. Can’t wait to get started? What are you waiting for then?!

Paint Everything

‘Everything’ may be a bit of an exaggeration. After all, you don’t want to ruin your furniture by adding a layer of thick paint. Still, paint does have a lot of redeeming qualities when it comes to the walls and fixtures. A new layer of paint will instantly make your house shine from top to bottom. Paint not only has a nice finish, but the colour also makes a difference. For example, changing from a white to a blue or something bolder will transform your home. The great thing about paint is it is so cheap, so buy a few tins and get cracking.




Stain Wood

Nowadays, lots of houses use wood to great effect. The problem with wood is you can’t paint over it, or you are loathe to because it’s a contradiction. Don’t worry, though, because there is a very easy solution. The solution is to use a stain or to chink the wood. If you have never heard of stain or chink before, take a look at for more information. In basic terms, stain or chink protect the wood from damage. To do this, they have a thick coating which seeps into the wood and revitalises the look. You can apply them to everything from the walls to the floor.

Reclaim Old Furniture

The idea of reclaiming furniture isn’t a very popular one for some people. You might have the same opinion, but you should reconsider. Sure, everyone wants to buy new things to put in their house. The thing is that new things cost a lot of money; old things cost a lot less. There are always great bargains when it comes to second hand material, and you can take advantage. Go online and take a look at what people are throwing away and whether it fits your criteria. If it does, your house and bank balance will look a lot healthier.


The great thing about restructuring is the lack of effort you need to achieve your goals. There is no need to buy anything or splash the walls with paint or stain. Instead, you just get hold of the furniture and move it into a different position. It will amaze you how better your house will look just from moving things around. Even better, it won’t cost you a penny.

Do you need to make a change without spending a lot of money? Well, these tips are perfect for you.
