Close up: Renovation Loan

You may be thinking “what is a loan for renovation and how can you use it?” Well, Nifty Loans offers personal loans for many reasons, including home renovation! If you wish to add a small boost to your funds for a new kitchen, bathroom or perhaps, new decor, then you can apply for one of our unsecured personal loans. Our unsecured personal loans range between $300 – $2,000. If you need a larger boost to your funds, then, consider our secured personal loans starting from $2,100 – $4,600 or a large secured loan of $5,000. Any loan over $2,001 requires equity such as a motorbike, caravan, car or boat to secure it.

Top renovation tips

Research.

You may be dreaming of hot pinks walls or retro-style features, however, that may not suit the current market. When renovating your property keep in mind the selling price, even if you’re not thinking of selling for a while. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with watching a few renovating shows (it’s research, right?).

Budget and plan.

Before you dive into a major and small home renovation, begin with a plan and most importantly, a budget. Find out how much you wish to spend then, coordinate your plan around your realistic budget.

Look after your front door.

The front door is the first impression you or anyone else has of your home. And they say first impressions count for everything. So, if your front door needs some TLC, give it a little love by giving it a new colour or using elbow grease to make it shine! Home renovation doesn’t have to break the bank.

Paint and lighting.

When you deciding to paint your living room a different shade, keep in mind how the light will affect the colour and size of the room. Darker shades tend to make the room look smaller, however, could potentially be cosier, so it depends on what you want from your space.

It’s all about the storage.

Think of storage when you’re renovating your home. It’s always a good idea to create more space when you have the opportunity.

Natural light.

When you’re renovating a space, take every opportunity to allow some natural light into the area.

Give your bathroom a touch of love.

We can spend a lot of times in our bathrooms between showering, grooming, and other things…so it’s important our bathrooms are lovely to be in. If you feel like your bathroom makes you sad it may need a touch of love.

We may not be renovation experts, however, we are loan experts. And we know that a renovation loan can kickstart a dream renovation project that’s in the works.
