Everyone is feeling the squeeze at the moment, and usually the first thing we abandon is the home. Considered too much of an expensive investment, home renovations are put on hold, overtaken by holidays, car maintenance and other important matters. But there are so many ways to spruce up home décor on a budget, so you can improve all areas of your life!
Your home is where you spend most of your time. You use it to relax and wind down after a hard day’s work, you use it to make memories with friends and family. It is important you feel happy in your home, and that it always reflects your current state of mind and stage of your life. People generally like to update at least one room a year, but this doesn’t mean spending hundreds of pounds and changing absolutely everything. Inexpensive revamps are easy and won’t break the bank – check out these interior design ideas.
Bored of the colour you chose for the walls a decade ago? Want a feature wall or a vibrant pattern but can’t afford to redecorate? Wall stickers or adhesive wall art is definitely the logical choice. There are now so many companies which offer a variety of wall stickers, and they create a huge impact. From decorative designs to inspiring words of wisdom, wall art can transform a room and is extremely cost effective.
Is your sofa lacking the beautiful exterior it once had? Have the dining room chairs gone out of fashion? Don’t start shopping for brand new furniture; just search for new fabrics you’d like to scatter around the home. With a simple bit of upholstering, or changing the covers on existing cushions, the whole room can come alive.
Once again, if you’re feeling unhappy with your flooring or carpet at the moment, there is no need to rip it all up and start again. If you’re revamping on a budget, simply look to cover up an area you dislike with a rug. Rugs are not only practical they can be a statement feature in a room, bringing a pop of colour or a contemporary design.
Lighting is solely responsible for evoking a mood in the home, which is why simple changes have maximum effect. Installing a dimmer switch on the mains lighting or investing in a few modern lamps can really change the atmosphere is any room. Don’t believe us? Try it out!
