1. Fix your wall instantly with wall panels

The majority of your home is made up by walls. By simply changing this one element of your interiors, you can have the space feel new and fresh. A straightforward way to redo your walls is by using wallpapers. With the many options and materials available, wallpapers make for a good choice. If you are not looking for just an usual upgrade, there are many decorative wall panels you can opt for. They can make for beautiful feature walls and can be fixed directly on a painted wall. Of course, there is paint, but with paint there is always the worry of it chipping, cracking or moulding. A safer bet would be to renovate using materials that are water and mould resistant, and ones which can be replaced with little effort.

2. Spruce up your front door

Most of us hold back on renovating our doors because installing a new one can cost a lot of money. However entrances tell a story. A story about your style. And giving your door a makeover can enhance the feel of your interiors greatly. A quick fix for this is to use door skins. Just like wall panels, door skins are easy to install, time-saving and hasslefree. A very commonly asked question with door skins is, what does one do to the edges of the door? Just have them polished with PU, and your door will be better than the original. 

We recommend:

  • Evolve India – Check out our website if you are looking for concrete or metal door skins, that can be customised by size and design.
  • Woodzon – For wooden door skins with intricate designs.

3. Redoing the flooring

A time-consuming problem with home renovation on a budget is changing the flooring. Uprooting a tiled flooring can be expensive, labour intensive and restrictive. But luckily there are ways around it. We have two options for you, one is you can have your floors done using micro cement. This is a swift and simple process where a cement-based coating is applied to the floor and smoothed to achieve seamless flooring. This process will cost you less than installing tiles or marble. Second is that if you don’t hate your tiles too much, just add some character with rugs. There are many easy to maintain rugs that can give your home a vibrant look, and add character. The best part about designing with rugs is that you can change it over short durations, to give your space a different look every few years.

We recommend:

  • Rugs – There are many online stores like Rugsville and Carpetmantra, from where you can choose a carpet that fits your budget. If you are looking for high-quality rugs, you can check out Jaipur Rugs and Cocoon Fine Rugs.
  • Microcement Floorings – Bharat floorings offers seamless micro cement floorings and also has a great selection of tiles to choose from.

Great ideas to kickstart a home renovation. Going by your guidelines, the flooring is the only thing in my house that does not require a makeover. The walls are screaming for a lick of paint, but a wallpaper sounds good. I can do with some new textures on the walls. That is an excellent recommendation.
