A Budget for Updating Your Home

WhereAny homeowner knows that making changes to a home can get very expensive very quickly. That’s why it’s important to budget for the upgrades you want to make and create a plan for how to tackle them. At Window Products serving Branford, we’ve got a few tips for how to approach your home projects.

Where to Start

Remember that you don’t need to do everything at once. Take your time to do it right! Work on one room at a time, which will allow you to spread out the expense by making long-range plans. Start by making a list of everything you want to accomplish, and be sure to include how you want to use each space. Once your list is complete, set it aside. Next examine how much you can realistically spend. Finally, review your wish list to determine which changes you can reasonably make.

You Can Cut Some Corners

When it comes to achieving your decorating goals, you don’t have to break the bank. For example, if your furniture is sad but still in good shape, buy slipcovers instead of new replacements. Or instead of getting new cabinets, consider simply changing out or adding new pulls. Or even paint them for a fresh look. Instead of new granite countertops, check out epoxy countertops, which can look just like real granite or marble at a fraction of the cost. In fact, you can find many “faux” elements that, these days, are perhaps even better than the real thing. Do some research on what might work for your situation, and you could save a good deal of money.

Invest in Your Home

Pay attention to what you notice first when you walk into the room. That’s where you’ll want to invest your money. Often, the window is the focal point in a room, so getting new window treatments can change the vibe of the room entirely. For example:

  • Bring Warmth and Romance to Your Room. If you’re looking to add soft light that sets the mood in a room, look no further than Silhouette® Window Shadings. Made with soft fabric vanes that are suspended between two sheer panels, Silhouette lets you control the light entering the room, letting it become so finely diffused that a previously harshly lit room is now a relaxing haven.
  • Softer Light. Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades will give your room a calming glow through softened natural light. Their subtle curves are produced by two layers of fabric that offer dimension that creates a contemporary look. Check out the earth tones and natural colors that will set your room to a different level.
  • Bring Serenity In. For a cozy, warmly relaxing feel, turn to Solera® Soft Shades, which combine a cellular shade’s insulating benefits with a Roman shade’s tailored look, to disperse light in a calm, soothing way.
