So, you’ve made the decision to redecorate your home? Great. Across the UK, thousands of homeowners are doing the exact same.
It’s been a challenging couple of years where more time than ever has been spent at home, which has naturally led to people wanting to breathe new life into their properties.
Most importantly, people want to do this on a budget. Money is tight, and the average person simply can’t afford to splash out thousands of pounds on a brand-new extension.
Therefore, if you want to spruce up your home on a budget, make sure to try the following tips and tricks.
Start with Flowers
Flowers are very underrated when it comes to giving homes a fresh and inviting look.
When you arrive home from work and are immediately met by a nice vase of flowers in your living room, it will automatically put you in a good mood. Plus, when guests come over, you’ve got an opportunity to impress them with your choice, whether it’s tulips or scented blooms.
To get the best flowers, you’ll need to use a florists.
Add Some Art to the Walls
If your walls are looking a little dull, you should use this as an opportunity to give them a nice refresh.
It’s a good idea to head into your local town and have a browse of the different art pieces that are available. In addition to this, you should frame your favourite photographs from over the years and add them to the walls, too (make sure that your framed photos are in visible spots, such as on the kitchen walls).
Give Your Spare Room a New Purpose
Do you have a spare room in your home that’s empty and vacant? If so, you should give it a new purpose.
For example, you could turn it into a games room for yourself or your children. Alternatively, you could make it an office space to be used whenever you’re working remotely.
Clear Out the Loft
If your loft is also collecting dust, you should give it a good clear-out. Once that’s done and dusted, you can then spruce the place up.
Many people are now using their lofts as spare bedrooms, as well as a second living room. The choice is yours!
Change the Carpet
Thankfully, it’s not too expensive these days to change your carpets.
If you’ve had yours for a while, they’ve probably been through a lot of wear and tear (and might even have some difficult to remove stains). When this is the case, the best solution is to treat yourself to some brand-new carpet.
Rearrange the Furniture
Lastly, if you want to give your home a new feel without spending a penny, you should simply rearrange the furniture. You’ll be surprised at how much of a positive difference this makes.
For example, just by moving your sofas and TV to new spots in the living room, it will feel like you’re suddenly in a different house. In fact, you might even discover that you’ve created more space for additional furniture, which would be a nice bonus.
