It’s time for your home to have a facelift, but how can you do that when funds are limited? It feels like it’s too difficult to redecorate when your budget is so small, but you really can make a difference for very little money. Here are some ideas to help you get started.
Update Your Cushion Covers
Your sofa may not be going anywhere, but you can certainly update it by updating the accessories. Try buying new cushion covers to make your cushions feel new and exciting. It’s amazing how much difference this can make to your sofa. If you want to take it one step further, you can add a new throw over the sofa too.
Use Mirrors to Add Light and Interest
If the budget is too tight for new artwork for your walls, try using mirrors instead. You can pick up new and interesting mirrors at high street stores, or even scour charity shops for mirrors that you can’t get anywhere else. Try grouping them on the wall to create a look that you won’t see anywhere else.
Fix Up Old Appliances
If you’ve got old appliances and items hanging around that aren’t working, now’s the time to put them back into service. For example, you can fix an old lamp using lamp spares from Spares2You. You can attach a leg back on an old table so you can use it again. Fix up the items that have been out of service for a while now, and they’ll feel brand new in your home.
Update A Wall
Is there a wall in your home that’s looking rather bare? You can decorate it for much less than you’d think. Buy a small tin of paint and add a pop of colour, to make it really stand out. You could also cover it using removable wallpaper, which is becoming more popular, especially with renters.
Add in Some Plants
There’s nothing better than some plants dotted around your home. They bring life to any room, and even purify the air. Plants are very cheap to come by if you shop around, so take a look at what’s available to you. If you’re worried about killing a plant, you can fake it by buying artificial plants. Some are now so convincing you can’t tell them apart from the real thing.
Change Out Door Handles
Are those kitchen cupboards looking a bit tired? You don’t need to take all of them out to make them look better. You can paint them if you feel the colour needs updating, but if you’re on a strict budget, just try changing the handles. You’ll see that just doing this will make them look fresh and new.
There are lots of ways you can redecorate your home while still on a strict budget. Use these tips to breathe new life into your home without breaking the bank. You’ll see what a difference you can make, without spending all of your cash on expensive upgrades.
