Change is a part of the world. Wherever you look, you will spot change. Look in the mirror and you'll see how your appearance has changed from your childhood days, maybe even from when you were in college. What doesn't always seem easy to change is the way that your house looks.

Interior designers are great house transformers but they are expensive

Bringing change to your home's interior often comes at a price. At the low end, you could easily pay several hundred dollars for an interior designer's services. An interior designer can run you several thousand dollars at the high end.

Hire the right interior designer and your home might look so inviting, open, classic, trendy or elegant that you wonder if you're living in the same house. Path to this type of transformation starts with vision. It also starts with a workable budget and a lot of work. In fact, it could take several weeks to transform a house's entire interior design.

But, that's the long way. Here are three overlooked house changers that only take a few hours to pull off. These three house changers don't require hours of pre-work. They also don't require the assistance of an experienced interior designer. In fact, you can give your home a new look for a fraction of one paycheck by:

  • Replace existing lamps - Remove old lamp shades and replace them with newer, more chic or elegant lamp shades. You can also replace entire lamps, going with metal, halogen, incandescent, long and narrow or oblong lamps.
  • Install new carpet - Install new carpet across an entire room and you can lighten or darken your home. A less expensive way to change the interior design of your house using carpeting is to place one to three throw rugs on the floor. Hand woven, printed, sheepskin, cotton and wool throw rugs are popular types of throw rugs that you could use. Looking to save money? Go with throw rugs that you buy at flea markets or outlet stores.
  • Take the new chair route - Place arm less chairs in room corners. Replace traditional kitchen chairs with stylish leather arm less chairs. Also, be open to putting a chair in a room that is currently absent a chair, rooms like your master bedroom, basement or guest bedroom.

Year round care and creativity do wonders for a home

Performing regular maintenance on your house helps to keep your home functioning at optimal levels for years. Care that you give to your outdoor spaces can turn your property into an amazing outdoor entertainment spot. Summers can be spent hosting barbecues, family gatherings and once in a lifetime celebrations.

Regular maintenance and care for your home is one of the best ways to keep your property values up. Yet, maintenance and care don't change the way that your house looks. To give your home a new look, you may have to transform the interior design.

Traditional interior design options can run anywhere from several hundred to several thousand dollars. Fortunately, there are workarounds. Get creative and stay open to new ways to alter the look and feel of your home. Also, be open to implementing three overlooked house changers.
