So make sure to go through your cabinets, drawers, and all areas of your house and remove all your clutters including old clothes, shoes, bags, appliances and others.
  2. Mix the arrangements of your furniture and appliances – another way to change the appearance of your place is to re-arrange your furniture.

But no matter what, changing the arrangement of your appliances and furniture will improve your house. It is nice to see some changes in different areas.
  3. Change the wall paint colour – if you want to create an instant new look without spending much, then you should change your wall paint colour.

  4. Use new curtains – another way to improve your house is by using new window curtains. Choose design that fits the theme of your house or the furniture in the room.

You can start one area at a time, so it is not that heavy on your pocket. Before you know it, you will be able to afford to buy one of your dream house and land in Brisbane, Sydney, or anywhere you want.
