Living in rented accommodation means that I am not able to make any life changing alterations but I do have permission to carry out smaller tasks (just not knock down walls etc!) With that being said I know this is going to be my home for a while to come and that I have to live in it and look at the same four walls day in day out, my solution is to work my way around the house putting my stamp on it.
Doing small changes and home renovations that won’t break the bank, meaning that when or if the time does come to move I haven’t sunk too much money into something that isn’t mine. I have debts from years of living in the moment but thankfully have all of that under control and can see the light at the end of the tunnel thanks to Creditfix so now is the time for me to have a little bit of freedom with regards to making my home comfortable.
A couple of the upcoming changes that don’t cost the earth are:
Tiles! Both in the bathroom and kitchen, a change of tiles can make a world of difference and it is so simple to bring something those boring 6 inch square white tiles into the modern age by switching to very affordable pretty subway tiles. Everyone and their aunt seems to have these right now so looking around at a few different options may be on the cards but I just love how clean the lines are with these.
Flooring! Ideally I would love wooden flooring in the living room, with it only being small it shouldn’t cost too much and if I opt for laminate rather than real wood that should keep the cost down. Of course there is always the option of taking it with me when I move too should it not get too damaged so that is a something worth considering when choosing too!
Having so many ideas though is tough as its only a small house and I want to keep changing it all the time! I get it sorted and see something else I think would look better and I am off again, please tell me I am not the only one!
