Every once in a while, we get the feeling of wanting to change a thing or two at home. Whether it’s redoing the living area’s layout or repainting the walls of your bedroom, a new look can bring a healthy dose of good vibes. While we’d all want to work on a makeover as soon as possible, setting a budget is a roadblock we all face. Many homeowners are concerned about the costs of renovation and the price of the pieces you’ll need to accomplish it.

Dramatic transformations don’t have to cost a lot, as proven by the condo makeovers we’re featuring below. With a budget of P10, 000 each, the design teams were able to give the owners a better and more inviting space to live in. Take note of their solutions and start planning your own makeover next:
