If you’re considering renovating your home or just sprucing up that neglected back room and finding the financial implications of the project a bit daunting, keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make the space beautiful.
There are many ways to give the spaces you live in a fresh, stylish makeover - and this doesn’t always have to cost a fortune.
Here is our list of effective, practical and aesthetically pleasing tips for renovating on a tight budget.
- Painting the walls
A new colour can make a dramatic change to a living space. Whether you’re painting an entire room or just one wall as a feature, carefully select the colour you choose. However, don’t be afraid of bold or primary colours – be brave in your selection.
- Changing the floor
Living spaces most often look outdated because of the flooring. Tiles and laminated flooring are usually trend-specific and also wear harshly over time in living areas with a lot of foot traffic. When your budget is limited but you’d like to make a drastic change, consider changing the flooring to a more updated style or even an urban-chic concrete.
- Use wallpaper
An alternative to painting, especially when you’re wanting to create a feature wall. Depending on the selection, wallpaper with an interesting pattern can add a lot of movement and really bring a space to life.
- Use mirrors
A great trick to use when your budget and the space itself is tight. Adding floor-to-ceiling or numerous mirrors in a smaller space will create the illusion that the space is more voluminous and, depending on the number of windows, could add even more light.
- Tidy it all up
In some cases, all a space really needs is a good tidying up and decluttering. So, before spending anything on an old room you mainly use for storage, tidy it up and get rid of all those things you don’t need or use. You might find an all-new living space under all that junk.
- Make indoor plant features
Adding plants to a home will bring it more life and a sense of serenity. You can stack or hang them in key spots around your home to add a natural element to the whole space.
