Splurged on the thermostat

When my husband and I bought our house we weren’t too pleased on the inside. The house had good bones but was an 80s house. There was wallpaper, brown rug and very cheap hardware all over the place. After buying a whole house we didn’t really have a bunch of money to use in updates. So I have managed to update the house quite cheaply. I removed the wallpaper and painted all the walls a light gray. I changed the ugly ugly hardware for simple silver handles. The switch plates are no longer plastic but silver. My husband even ripped up the brown rug and put down a thinner, dark gray rug that looks great. The most expensive touch was probably the rugs and adding a new thermostat. In my hallway I sanded and smoothed the ceiling. I painted the walls gray and my husband added the rug. I even painted all the doors and added new knobs. The beige thermostat with the plastic toggle stood out like a sore thumb. It didn’t match time period wise or color. I found a smart thermostat online for 200 dollars and I bought it. It has a silver surround and blue innerface. It looks great in the hallway and super modern. My husband was able to install it so we saved money on no HVAC contractor. It works perfectly with our HVAC system and even sends us alerts. My husband now knows when to change the air filter, have energy efficient settings and problems with the air quality. How cool is that?
