Give your home the luxury look without the Hollywood budget but with our affordable glass balustrades

April 4, 2018

kitchen splashbacks and glass balustradesGiving your home a luxury makeover may seem impossible on an average budget. However, you don’t need a movie star’s salary to afford one of our glass balustrades. Adding a touch of class to your property is possible through other budget-friendly means too. Read on, as we outline some of the ways of doing so below.

Mould the luxury into your home with decorative mouldings

Introducing some decorative mouldings to your property can really help give it that luxury look, without breaking the bank. Unprimed skirting boards are available for just over £2 per metre. Varnishing and installing them can then be done virtually cost-free, if you don’t mind the labour. Alternatively, you could pay someone to install them. Prices for this will vary, but are unlikely to come close in costs to more expensive home improvement solutions.

Fix up those old walls

Provided you can find the time to clear space, painting a room can really bolster its look. Paint is very affordable, particularly if you find some on offer. The Good Housekeeping Institute has a guide on how to buy the right paint for the right job, so you can get the choice of paint right first time. This should allow you to add a very budget-friendly touch of luxury to your home.

Feel amazed with affordable glass balustrades

Glass balustrades add a serious touch of class to any property. Capable of use anywhere in the home, they help define space without restricting views. Available in a vast amount of colour and style options, homeowners are certain to find one suitable for them. As a material, glass is extremely resistant to corrosion, much more so than metal, and it will not rot, like wood. Glass balustrades will, generally, last for decades, meaning they’re very good value for money. Check out our affordable range here. You’re bound to find one to suit both your home and your budget!

Lavish lighting at the right price

Changing up the lights in the house is another affordable option for improving the look of your home. Dimmer switches give off that expensive vibe and are relatively cheap. Plus, Argos and Tesco do a range of affordable chandelier options. One of these would look perfect over the dining table, increasing the room’s ambience. Although, a lavish chandelier will do the same job when placed in almost any room.

Hold some cash back with a kitchen splashback

Kitchen splashbacks add a touch of modern style to a kitchen. Immensely sleek, reasonably priced and available in a wide array of colours, they’re suitable for kitchens of all sizes. Due to their durability and ease of maintenance, they will look stunning for years, meaning they’re an extremely valuable investment.

We’d all like our home to look as good as possible, sadly though, the costs can get in the way. Hopefully, with these budget-friendly solutions, you’ll be able to add a touch of class to your home for the right price.

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
