Have you ever found yourself watching HGTV and thinking you would never have enough money for a home makeover? Being a homeowner myself with a family of 5 and on a strict budget, I have found easy and enjoyable ways to update my space.

3 tips to update your space on a budget:

1. Shop resale

We’ve all heard the phrase, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Don’t be afraid to purchase an item that someone once owned. Check out places like Facebook Marketplace, Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. You can take an old item and make it look brand new with a little bit of elbow grease and some paint.

2. Repaint

Paint goes a long way! Painting your cabinets, walls, or furniture can change the look and vibe of your home. You can go from shabby to chic or modern to farmhouse with just a coat of paint. Before you settle on a color, get a few samples and do a test section to figure out what best fits your aesthetic.

3. Replace hardware

Upgrading your faucets, doorknobs, shower heads, and cabinet handles can elevate the look of your home without the cost of a full remodel.
