How To Upgrade Your Home Without Spending Any Money - Mallach and Company - Tina Mallach - Leander Real Estate - Central Texas Real Estate

Is a home makeover one of your New Year’s Resolutions? Upscaling your home may seem like an expensive project to undertake. And while it easily can be, there are several simple upgrades that you can implement in your home this year without spending a dime!

The key to a frugal home makeover is simplicity, sustainability, and subtlety. Making changes with these home improvement tactics in mind will help bring your home back to life while ensuring that you aren’t spending thousands on a remodel. 

Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to upscale your home for no cost!


Disorganization and improper storage can quickly lead to a cluttered home that leaves homeowners feeling tired and stressed as soon as they walk in the door. While spending money on purchases like large storage pieces may seem like a quick fix, taking on a more “do-it-yourself” mentality will save you in the long run. Plus, you can then reorganize your space precisely the way you want it and make use of things in new ways.

As you begin decluttering your home, think of each room and cluttered space in terms of usability and aesthetics. Empty out kitchen cabinets, closets, and any storage chests and separate the items in piles for keeping, donating, and throwing away. You will be amazed at how clean and refreshed your home will feel.


Once your home is decluttered and organized, it’s time to take a tour through your home with a new goal in mind – repurposing. Looking at your home with fresh eyes can be a great way to upscale in a sustainable way, with no additional cost to you! Consider exchanging wall art from room to room, switching up the decor you have on display, changing out shelving, and even moving rugs to different arrangements to refresh the space. 

While changing the orientation of pieces across your home is one great way to revitalize your home, you can also focus your attention on repurposing those items to bring new life to your space. Think of utilizing an old ladder as a shelf, a cupboard as a box garden, or even unused books as floating bookshelves. Every item and piece of furniture in your home has multiple uses – all you need is a little imagination!
