With more people stuck at home than ever before, home improvements and renovations have exploded as people look for ways to spruce up their surroundings. For many of us, an entire home renovation isn’t in the cards, but even on a budget, there are ways to make your home look elegant.
Here are five ideas to help you improve the look of your home without breaking the bank.
- Fresh Coat of Paint
There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint on the walls to brighten up any room. Choose your favourite colour or take a look at the new colour trends. If you are going for an elegant look, go with clean, understated tones or bold and dramatic colours.
Paint is also one of the most budget-friendly home fixups you can find, and it makes a big difference in the look and feel of a room. Do it yourself to save even more money.
- New Kitchen Hardware
Kitchens are often the showpiece of a home and if yours needs an update, consider giving your cupboards a fresh coat of paint and updating your kitchen hardware. You don’t need to renovate the entire room to get a stylish facelift.

Bright, fresh colour makes even older cupboards look like new, and new hardware is a great and inexpensive way to complete the look.
Antique stores, garage sales and smaller hardware stores are great places to find unique handles and pull tabs, but even big box stores have a wide variety of hardware to choose from. Look for heavy-duty, elegant-looking hardware to give your kitchen a stylish update.
Landscaping can make a significant difference in your home’s appearance and enhance your yard, improve your privacy and help increase your property value. If your yard is feeling bare and in need of attention, consider adding evergreen shrubs in Ontario. They are easy to care for, give your yard an elegant look, and there are many varieties to choose from to get the look you want in most local nurseries.
Even something as simple as cleaning up the garden and adding some seasonal flowers can make your home look well maintained and elegant.
If your yard already has trees, consider getting an arborist to help with the care and maintenance. Tree trimming can do a lot to improve the look of older trees and is beneficial for their health. To find an arborist, simply search for tree trimming near me to find a qualified expert who can help get your trees and shrubs looking elegant in no time.
- Crown Moulding
Crown moulding is a detail that adds a touch of elegance to a room and doesn’t have to cost a lot. Crown moulding ties a room together and makes it look complete by uniting the floor and the ceiling. You can buy different crown moulding widths at most hardware stores and give them a custom coat of paint for an elegant finished look.
- Design Feature
If your home is short on space or you want to make the most out of an open floor plan, consider a bold design feature like a floating staircase. Floating staircases are designed to hide the supporting structure giving you a clean, open, elegant look. Custom modern stairs ideas can update any home and are a practical and stylish way to open up your living space.
