Sticking to a Home-Update Budget

Create a Color Board

At Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, our customers frequently ask our advice about how to stick to a budget when they want to make some home renovations. If you’re in that boat, know that you’re not alone. It can be hard to keep the spending to a minimum when there’s so much you want to do to your home. Never fear, though! We’ve got some tips below.

Make a List

Whether you have a small single room to update or you want to makeover your entire home, start by making a list of everything you want to accomplish. Remember to include what kind of vibe you want and how you want to use each space. This will help you get an overview of your vision for the space. Once your list is complete, take a look at your finances. How much money do you realistically have to spend and where will it come from? If you have set aside some “mad money” or have a savings designated for home improvement, you’re all set. If not, determine how much money you are comfortable spending on your space without feeling guilty.

Making Choices

Review your list to determine what you might be able to accomplish with the money you can spend. And remember that even a small change can have a big impact without breaking your budget. For example, if you decided you wanted to add color to your room, you might accomplish that goal by simply purchasing a few decorative throw pillows.

Investing Wisely

What’s the first thing you notice when you walk in your room? That should be where you invest your money first. For example, if you see the window first, you might think about purchasing some new window treatments to transform the look and feel. No matter what your design style, Hunter Douglas has a perfect treatment for you. For example, you could choose Hunter Douglas soft sheer custom treatments with a modern flair. These beautiful, sheer horizontal shades combine the functionality of a blind with the beauty of a fabric shade. Check out Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, or Nantucket™ Window Shadings. Or you could go with the custom shutter collection from Hunter Douglas. If your dream design includes elegance, European flair, or cozy country comfort, consider plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas. They offer three product lines, including Heritance® hardwood shutters, NewStyle® hybrid shutters, and Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters. Each offers endless design configurations.
