If there is one thing almost everyone has on their bucket list, it’s owning your dream home. Whether you have your heart set on a house, or you haven’t quite found the perfect fit yet – a lot of our working life will be spent trying to purchase the place of our dreams.
As it’s such an important milestone in anyone’s life, the pressure to be able to save enough to buy something amazing can sometimes be incredibly high and often something that can’t be achieved. This means that more often than not, people’s dream houses are now more focussed on turning the house they already own into something incredible, even if it does mean having to work hard to be able to afford the renovations.
Whether you’re buying your dream house or renovating your own, here are 7 ways to help you get there.
#1: Set an Overall Budget You Want to Spend
If you’re buying or renovating, having a budget in mind is a great place to start. This will allow you to see what kinds of properties or renovations are within your budget, giving you an idea of what you can get for your money and whether or not your ideas are 100% feasible.
#2: Consider Having Your Dream Home Custom Built
If you do have the budget and you want to splash out, why not consider having your dream home custom built. With companies like Treasured Spaces Inc there to help you design every last detail of your home, you can sure you’re getting exactly what you want.
#3: Renovate Your Home One Room at a Time
If you want to take it slow and cut down on spending too much at once, there is always the options to renovate one room at a time. Doing things at your own pace means that it doesn’t take too much time out of your day to day life, and means you have time to save between each renovation.
#4: Remember, It’s All in the Accessories
Again, for those with a minimal budget, you may want to consider putting all your focus on the accessories. Whether this means buying incredible canvas art, updating your furniture or building the walk-in wardrobe you’ve always wanted – your dream home doesn’t have to cost the world.
#5: Turn Your Renting Property into a Home
If you’re renting a property and there is no sign of buying on the horizon, there are lots of little things you can do to make your place feel like home. Find out what your restrictions are in terms of decorating, the consider how long you’ll be in the property as to whether or not the costs will be worth it. If not, try making changes by updating your furniture or adding wall art to your favourite rooms.
#6: Keep up with the Latest Trends
Following home inspiration accounts on Instagram to keep up with the latest trends is a great way to get ideas for your home. Whilst Pinterest is incredible for things like this, seeing the way influential people have styled their homes can be so much more inspiring!
