The home you purchase isn’t always your dream property, but you can turn your property into the home of your dreams with a few quick fixes. Here are some tips to upgrade your home for less.  



1. Paint your kitchen cabinets 

Freshly painted cabinets give the kitchen an update without the cost of a full renovation. Choose light colours to brighten the space. 


2. Add mirrors 

Mirrors can make any space seem larger and are an easy way to ‘open up’ a room.


3. Invest in landscaping 

Consider adding some landscaping to the front of your property. A tree or two works well in a more rural environment, and never underestimate the power of a few potted plants in an urban home. 


4. Add wooden floors

Wall-to-wall carpet is no longer a popular choice, as homeowners now prefer wooden floors that they can choose to put a rug on. Consider vinyl flooring in a wooden pattern to get reclaimed wooden floors for less. 


5. Freshen the front door

First impressions count, so choose a front door in a neutral glossy shade or pick a bright colour with personality.
