Creating a Beautiful Home on a Budget

< Blog list

With rising bills lately, a lot of people might be looking to spruce up their home for the winter months on a tighter budget. Refreshing your home doesn’t have to cost the earth with these budget ideas; with a bit of careful planning and creativity, you’ve got this!

New furniture can be on the pricy side but if you love your existing furniture and you are willing to put in a bit of time to sand it down and repaint it, upcycling your furniture is an excellent idea. A lick of paint and new cupboard door handles or knobs can work wonders in revitalising your space! If you don’t have the time or budget to repaint the whole piece, using a stencil to add designs to the front and watch it transform your room.

Adorn The Walls
If you have some spare photo frames knocking around in the attic and you can get to your nearest hardware shop for some wallpaper samples, this one is easy and effective. Choose some contrasting wallpaper samples and add them to the frames for instant wall art to brighten up your space. If you can’t get wallpaper samples, patterned fabric will work too.

Add Plants
If your space is looking a bit bare, plants will instantly breathe life into your home. Watch out for reduced plants in your nearest garden centre, bring them home for some love and attention and watch them thrive! If you aren’t green fingered, there are some excellent imitation plants available. Keep an eye out in your local charity shops for imitation plants, throws and decorative pots too.

Move and Improve
If your budget doesn’t allow for any extras to update your home, don’t worry! Something as simple as rearranging and rotating your furniture and the items in your house can provide an instant and effective refresh! Keep an eye on any freecycle websites in your local area and another clever way to update your home is by talking to friends and family and asking if they would be willing to swap a few items so you can all benefit for no cost.

We hope this guide has helped you get more creative and freshen up your space for those cosy winter evenings. If you need help in your home with the things you can’t DIY such as the electrics or plumbing, HandyExperts are on standby. Please click here for a quick quote today.
