After the renovation, I found out that these 10 places are not worth spending too much money, and the ordinary design is more practical.

For ordinary families, the down payment to buy a house has basically emptied their savings, and there are still decades of mortgage loans, so life will be very hard. However, after buying a house, there is another big project that costs money, that is, decoration. Therefore, the decoration should be as close as possible to the "practical" aspect. Only those practical designs will be durable and not out of date for decades. I have renovated 4 houses before and after my family, and I have accumulated a lot of experience. Today, I summarize 10 decoration links that are not worth spending a lot of money, which can save a lot of decoration budget. It's not just fooling around, but the experience and lessons of someone who has come here.

1. Anti-theft gate

The entrance gate provided by the developer is generally not too bad, after all, it needs to go through strict procedures before handing over the house quality check. An anti-theft door costs thousands of dollars at least. There is no need to waste this "wasted money". Just keep the anti-theft door provided by the developer and just replace the door lock. If you think the color of the security door is too ugly, you can repaint it, or make felt to change the shape, the effect will not be bad.

2. Smart lock

It is recommended to replace the door lock with a smart lock, not only the anti-theft effect of the lock cylinder is good, but also the door can be opened by fingerprint, password, face brushing, etc. , especially convenient and hassle-free. However, you don't need to buy too expensive smart locks. Thousands of smart locks are enough, some big brands of high-end smart locks. It has all kinds of fancy functions, but most of these functions are not used, and there are many brand premiums, which are really not worthwhile.

3. Tiles

When decorating, tiles are used in many places, such as the floors and even the walls of the dining room. Kitchen, bathroom, etc. Tiles do not necessarily have to choose first-tier big brands. In fact, the quality of tiles from second- and third-tier brands is not bad, but the price is much cheaper. Because big brands will have a lot of brand premiums, building a brand naturally requires a lot of money to promote, and this part of the publicity fee is naturally superimposed into the price. The price of second- and third-tier tiles with similar styles, patterns and sizes is at least one to two times lower than that of first-tier big brands. When buying ceramic tiles, it is enough to choose second- and third-tier ceramic tiles whose colors and specifications match the decoration style of the home, which does not affect the quality of the decoration.

4. Wall Materials

When decorating walls, everyone has different choices, such as tile and wallpaper. , wall covering, diatom mud, latex paint and so on. The effect of tiling on the wall is too cold, and if the environment is humid, it is easy to get water. Diatom mud is expensive, and the pits are easy to accumulate dust, and the absorption of formaldehyde is just a gimmick. Wallpaper and wall coverings are easy to warp, and the walls are easy to mold and have a short service life. Relatively speaking, latex paint is still the choice for wall materials, which is not only cheap, but also has various colors. It is simple, atmospheric, durable, and easy to repair. It will not be out of date for twenty years. Although the price of latex paint is cheap, you should pay attention to one point when purchasing, that is, the environmental protection level must pass the test, so that you can use it with confidence.

5. Ceiling ceiling

The actual indoor floor height is only about 2.7 meters, which is very limited. When many people decorate, in order to create the effect of light luxury and atmosphere, they like to design a suspended ceiling on the ceiling of the guest dining room. The complicated ceiling requires a lot of money, and it is easy to hide dirt, and it will also press down the ceiling that is not high, which looks depressing. The ceiling is best not to do complicated ceiling, if you feel too monotonous, do a circle of plaster line, or double eyelid. Not only saves money, but also the visual effect is simple and attractive, and there is no need to worry about the problem of lowering the height of the floor.

6. Lamps

In addition to not making complicated ceilings, the lamps and lanterns for the ceiling should also be selected. After all, the main function of lamps and lanterns is lighting, and the second is lighting. Consider aesthetics. It is best not to choose crystal chandeliers for the ceiling. A large series of chandeliers can easily make the dining room depressed, and it is easy to be contaminated with dust, which is particularly troublesome to clean. The price of crystal chandeliers is not cheap, it can cost thousands of yuan, and it is troublesome to repair if there are problems in the later period. There are also some net red feather lights, molecular lights, opening lights, etc. At first glance, the effect is quite good, but then it is not practical, especially easy to accumulate dust. It costs a lot of money and brings unnecessary trouble to the cleaning work. It is recommended to choose a simple ceiling lamp, which is not only cheap, but also simple in shape and durable, so you don't have to worry about being outdated after using it for decades.

7. Kitchen countertops

Quartz stone is enough for kitchen countertops. It is not only cheap, but also durable and effective. Quite good looking. There is no need to spend a lot of money to use materials such as rock stainless steel. Stainless steel and rock plate materials look quite high-grade. However, the stainless steel countertop is prone to various scratches after being used for a long time, which will become particularly ugly, and there is basically no possibility of repair. The disadvantage of the slate material is that it is too brittle and too thin. If it is accidentally bumped, it may break.

8. Shower area partition

No matter how big or small the bathroom is, we should try our best to design the separation of dry and wet. , willing to spend one or two thousand square meters for glass partitions. The glass partition in the shower area not only needs to spend a lot of money, but also the glass may be in danger of bursting, and it is particularly difficult to clean if it is stained with scale. Personally, I suggest that the shower area should be designed with a shower curtain + water retaining strip to achieve the partition effect, which not only saves money, but also pulls up the shower curtain after use, especially saving space.

9. Large Appliances

There are many appliances in every household, which can improve our quality of life. For example, televisions, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, etc. Many people think that electrical appliances are expensive, with TVs, refrigerators, and washing machines costing 70,000 to 80,000 yuan. In fact, there is no need to buy too expensive electrical appliances at all, and many functions are not used. The TV chooses 4K picture quality and 2G running memory, and 60 inches is not enough. Many people's TVs are just decorations. For a washing machine, there is no need to spend thousands or tens of thousands of dollars to buy an all-in-one washing machine. A pulsator washing machine of thousands of dollars is enough, and you don't need to bend over to operate it. The same is true for refrigerators. Many high-end refrigerators have added smart functions. For example, adding a smart screen requires thousands of dollars. It is better to put a tablet computer on the side. The core of the refrigerator is the capacity, cooling effect, energy saving, noise, etc. The intelligence is purely a gimmick.

10. Curtains

Curtains are an indispensable part of the home's soft furnishings, which can provide shading, sound insulation and other effects. Curtains can meet the needs of shading and decoration, such as polyester fabrics of dozens of pieces per square meter, which have good hand feel, good drape and wrinkle resistance. There is no need to add fancy things such as curtains and accessories, which will increase the cost and increase the difficulty of cleaning.
