Inexpressive home re-modelling ideas

7th November 2017   /    Advice and News   /    no comments

You have decided to alter the appearance of your house but you have a limited remodelling budget. If that is your case, have no worries and keep reading because we will turn your attention towards several amazing home improvement ideas that are extremely affordable to realise.

  • Replace your closet’s bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors look cheap and rarely have an impact on the overall ambience of the bedroom. However, removing them will certainly affect the area and will make it appear more sophisticated. Install in their place two common hollow doors, which you will alter by mounting wooden panels on them. If you desire, you can go to the next level and change the hinges as well. Once done, paint the new closet doors into a colour that matches the overall tone of your bedroom. When done, contact professional waste removal contractors such as Rubbish Go Away and take advantage of their comprehensive after construction clearance services in London. After all, you will be more or less exhausting from the remodelling project.

Dim ceilings are becoming more and more popular

  • Paint your ceilings in darker tones

Most people paint the ceiling in their living room white in order to spread light around the room. Nevertheless, this does not mean that a darker hue cannot be beautiful and enhance the feeling of the area. Dim tones tend to add drama and elegance, while the reduce illumination levels will allow you to highlight a single object into your living room and make it a conversational piece.

  • Create a conversational pit in your living room

The only thing that you have to do is to purchase three couches, and arrange them into a square shape. Add a final touch by complimenting the sofas with a coffee table that is reachable by everybody at the centre of the pit. By creating a conversational pit, you will have a place in your home where you can gather with your family and friends, and really talk about things, instead of just watching or going through your smartphones.

  • Hide your overhead lights

Some overhead lighting fixtures are simply said ugly and ruin the ambience of any room. You can solve this issue by creating your own drum shades and hiding them. Keep in mind that DIY drum shades do not fit all types of lights, so before you commence the project, examine your fixtures and make sure that they have a spot where you can hook the shades. Also, do not forget to apply fireproof spray on the drum shades before your install in order to avoid the possibility of them catching fire.

Ameliorate the quality of your sleep with black draperies

  • Hang blackout curtains

Black window treatments are elegant and can easily fit into any decorative style. Most interior designers prefer to hang blackout curtains in bedrooms, as they do an amazing job at blocking sunlight and therefore enhance the quality of sleep. They are also praise for their energy saving abilities during the summer, as they allow the room to stay cool by stopping natural light from entering.

Saving money off your home – now possible

24th October 2017   /    Advice and News   /    no comments

With property and rent prices rising and the job market becoming more and more competitive, people are constantly looking for new ways to reduce their expenses. It is possible to be more financially-efficient without being frugal, and that is a proven fact. With a few minor adjustments and some long-term investing a person can save money without reducing their quality of life, even from things such as the utility bills and other expenses we made for our homes. Here is how.

Stop wasting resources and save money

The money we pay for water and heating make up most of the utility bills that we pay at home. And still, most people are rather irresponsible when it comes to using those vital resources. Wasting water is one of the easiest bad habits to get off your back. Some often repeated tips for this include:

  • Stop the tap when you are shaving and/or brushing your teeth.
  • Take showers together with your partner for increased water-efficiency, as well as intimacy
  • Switch on the dishwasher and the washing machine only when there is a full load in them
  • Water your garden early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid losing moisture due to evaporation.

Once you become more responsible about the way you use water at your home, you will be doing your wallet, as well as the environment, a big favour.

A clutter-free home is a less expensive one

Stack of poundsYou might not have thought about it, but clutter, rubbish and general disorder at your home makes you a lot less efficient. If you want to save money, you need to scale down the amount of items that you keep. Getting rid of all unwanted and unnecessary clothes, out-dated appliances that consume too much energy and general rubbish will save you a lot of money in the long term. Naturally, building a clutter-free environment can be a pretty strenuous and complex task, and for that reason you might want to sign up for assistance of a professional house clearance firm in London. Fortunately, in our day and age, it would be an easy task finding such a company, and on top of that – at a price that will not strain your budget at all.

Cut your electricity bill in half

Both in summer and in winter you pay big money for cooling and respectively heating your home. You will be able to considerably reduce those sums if you choose to simply improve the insulation of the house or apartment in question, so that it will warm up quicker and for longer – and cool off respectively when you crank up the AC. Surely, you will have to put aside a lump sum of money in order to achieve the results that you are after, but you should not forget that you are into it for the long-hole. In a couple of years’ time you will save up enough on your electricity bills to be thankful about the initial investment.
