Affordable Accents: Renovating Your Home on a Dime

Owning your a home allows you the ability to renovate without having to get someone elses permission. Here are some tips to renovate your home without paying an arm and a leg.

Accented Cabinets

The kitchen is one place many homeowners want to renovate, but it can get expensive. Things do not have to get out of hand if you stick to simple renovations, like re-painting the cabinets (and yes even the countertop!). You can give the cabinets a bold color to make your kitchen splash or use the new popular colors of white or espresso. You can add kitchen tools and appliances that echo the color you use to make everything feel tidy.

Accent the Restroom

Another room that many homeowners would love to renovate is the bathroom. This little room can be renovated with a simple accent. Just go to your local hardware store or home improvement store, and look at their high end tiles. These tiles can be extravagant because they are meant to only be an accent in your restroom. You want to install a strip of this accent in a small strip somewhere around your restroom, which should make the room pop. Because you use low cost tiles for the majority of the tilework and only use the expensive ones for the accent you can save big.

Once again you can paint the cabinets, and perhaps replace mirrors and make a big difference as they did in the following video.

Patio Updated

The patio door may have an outdated look. It might seem like you cannot do anything about it without spending a lot of money, but there are a number of choices like installing bi-fold or “stacker” glass doors. The mechanism that these doors use provides more security than other options. You should be able to see the results of this renovation in no time since installation does not take too long.  You can check out the technical specifications at Nu-Look Glass & Aluminium Windows or someone similar.


Sure, you can hire a professional to renovate your garden or yard, or you can do it yourself if you want to save money. All you need is some knowledge in gardening and to watch a few videos online. You can give your home a whole new look by planting new greenery around your home.

You might not have considered how landscaping affects your home, but it is the thing that visitors see first when they arrive at your home.

These are just some of the things you can do to renovate your home on a dime though there are other avenues that you can take. For example, you can upgrade your light fixtures with modern lights, which will help brighten your home without flooding your home with too much light. You can also hire an interior designer to figure out other simple changes you can make inside your home.
