Tackle big impact rooms
Big impact areas are room areas such as hallways, bathrooms and kitchens. These are the areas that can make or break the sale of a house.
These are all areas that have high impact but also cost the most – but you can do this easily and on a budget if you do the following:
Refreshing walls & tiles
Update out of date walls giving them a freshen up. There are many different options available for this. You may be thinking about hiring a tiler to retile the kitchen and bathroom, but there are other alternatives that offer a far greater impact and cost you a fraction of the price.
PVC wall panels are a great way of covering up old or broken tiles and also uneven wall surfaces. There are a wide range of kitchen & bathroom wall tile alternatives that give you the authentic look of tiles but can be fitted by yourself.
So with this, you’re saving time on material and money on labour, it’s a no brainer!
Giving your hardware a refresh can make a huge impact – updating new handles and cabinet fronts can be a great way of giving your kitchen or bathroom a fresh look without paying out for new carcasses.
Do it yourself
One of the biggest costs to renovating a property is paying for labour. If you’ve got a handy friend or are a dab hand yourself, you should be getting stuck in where you can.
Find products that you can easily fit yourself and find the easiest solutions that give you the highest impact for the least amount of work.

Making sure that you have a clear understanding of the key areas that you need to tackle for each room. You can then set aside a budget for each room. Planning a style and products allows you to shop around to find the best prices and maybe even finding great alternatives that can help you to save money.
If you need to replace hardware such as new kitchens, bathroom etc then you’re looking at a large cost to purchase from new. If you’re looking to give these rooms a complete update then look for ex-showroom or used kitchens. Often these give you a much better price. They have a couple of scratches but it may look better than what you’ve currently got.
Small things that make a big difference
Some times, it’s the smaller things that give you the biggest impact. The key is making sure your home looks fresh, clean and opens the imagination for those looking to purchase.
One way to do that is a good lick of paint on worn areas, new rugs and diffusers give your home a refreshing touch which will make your property stand out against all others.
Tidying away clutter and introducing more storage spaces where you can will help keep things minimal.
