Depending on your finances you may feel that a home makeover is beyond your reach. With energy price increases, the cost of food, and other expenses it is easy to believe that a new look for the home is out of the question. It doesn’t have to be, however, and here we give you a few ideas to give your home a great makeover when you’re on a budget.
Let’s not forget that your home is a place where you want it to be just right. It is a place where you and your family spend time together making memories, and you don’t want to walk into a room and wish it had a different theme and feel.
If you’re considering throwing away an unloved piece of furniture you may want to consider upcycling it. A lick of paint or varnish can breathe new life into furniture that’s past its best. You can replace handles on drawers, and this can make the world of difference. Try and think outside the box for the best results.
Create Your Own Artwork
You don’t have to be a budding Picasso to create your own artwork just a little creativity and you’re good to go. Think about stretching wallpaper or an old piece of patterned clothing over a canvas. Be creative. If you’re stuck for clothing charity shops often have something that can be used for this purpose.
Think Outside the Box for New and Replacement Furniture
Furniture can be a large expense so it is a good idea to try and breathe as much life into your existing ones as possible. There comes a time, however, when you need to get something new for the home.
Think about exploring the second hand market as you may get lucky and find something in great condition that has been well looked after. More often than not, however, people get rid of furniture that is not in great condition and you’ll no doubt find plenty that are worse than the piece you are replacing.
There is also a time when second hand just won’t do, in which case take a look at VidaXL as they have a good range of reasonably priced furniture. This is especially true when it comes to seating whether you want a sofa or a very comfortable armchair that reclines.
Plants can make a great addition to a room and you can get some quite striking ones that do not require too much care. The trick is to get ones that are suited to the space in terms of light. A well positioned plant can bring colour and a new vibe into a room and you’ll love the freshness that comes with it.
Bookcases Aren’t Just for Books
Bookcases can be used in a dynamic way to bring colour and character to a room. You can position your freestanding bookcase to divide a room or it can go against a ‘boring’ wall allowing you to decorate it quite easily. As well as books, photos and plants, and all kinds of things can be positioned on it to bring it to life.
Decorating on a budget is far from impossible. Give it a try!
