Do you want to give your Preston property a makeover and make it look more welcoming? Try these budget-friendly ideas to help make your property more desirable to potential tenants.

Give the kitchen a makeover

Kitchens are normally the most expensive room in the house to upgrade but giving the kitchen a makeover doesn’t mean you have to replace all of the fittings and appliances. Just by changing a few things you can make the kitchen go from drab to fab without a huge price tag.

A fresh coat of paint can completely transform a room. Whether you choose to paint the walls, the tiles or the kitchen cupboards, a fresh coat of paint can make a big impact with a small budget.

Replacing the flooring with vinyl tiles can really freshen up the feel of the room.

If you are letting your property fully furnished investing in matching appliances like toasters and kettles and making sure that they fit in with the colour scheme of the rest of the kitchen can stop it from looking tired and unloved.

Replacing door and drawer handles with modern ones can help to stop the kitchen from looking dated.

Bathroom on a budget

Improving the bathroom doesn’t have to cost the earth. There are some things you can do to refresh it on a budget.

If the bathroom suite really needs replacing but the cost of a new one is out of your budget you can often find cheaper versions in trade stores or sometimes even on online marketplaces.

There are lots of tiling tutorials online and new tiles or new vinyl flooring can transform a room.

Replace all the fixtures such as towel rail, toilet roll holder etc with modern fittings.

As with all rooms a fresh lick of paint can make the world of difference to a room. Don’t forget to only use paint specifically made for bathrooms so that it can cope with the steam and humidity.

Add some colour

If you can’t afford to redecorate your whole room but still want to give it an update then try adding a few new accessories. It also means that if you go off of them in a few months or if your tenants don’t like them then it is easy to remove them and try something else.

Lamp shades are ideal for adding a touch of colour to a room and adding a new lamp can help to light up dim corners which will help the room to feel larger as well.

If you can’t afford to paint the whole room a feature wall is a less expensive way of changing the look of a room.
