Your home can start to look shabby after a while despite regular cleaning and tidying. You may be bored of the decor or just feel the place needs a bit of something to get its sparkle back. If your home is in need of a freshen up but you don’t want to break the bank check out these 5 ways to update your home on a budget.
Give it a lick of paint to update your home on a budget
More often than not a lick of paint can completely transform a room. Buying paint doesn’t need to be expensive either. You can pick up some very reasonably priced paint from places such as Wilko. If you have children just make sure you buy a washable paint (we all know how messy kids can get!).
Update your home on a budget by Re-carpetting
Buying a new carpet may not scream low budget but there are plenty of places to pick one up on the cheap. Depending on the size of the room you want to re carpet you could also consider choosing an off cut. Carpet off cuts are usually heavily discounted so make a great budget option for small rooms.
Get yourself a new rug
If you already have wood flooring and don’t fancy a carpet, you may like to consider buying a new rug for the hard floor. A nice rug gives a lovely warm homely feel to a room. It’s also easily be swapped around to create the style you’re happy with.
Update your room with new curtains or blinds
A fresh pair of curtains or a new blind can really help bring a room together. With plenty of styles and patterns to choose from you can be as adventurous or low key as you like. I always like to get a good mat
Fresh blankets and cushions
Similarly to choosing new curtains, fresh blankets and cushions can offer a pop of contrasting colour into your room without breaking the bank. They offer a great way to keep your home looking and feeling cosy. Who doesn’t love having a blanket to pull round them on a chilly evening.
