How to spruce up your home on a budget

Painting And Decorating

One super cheap way to spruce up your home is to do some simple painting and decorating. If your walls are looking a little boring, then you can liven them up with a fresh coat of paint. Painting is a great option for those who do not have a lot of money, as paint can be fairly cheap to buy. Additionally, when you are trying to find the right paint for your walls, you can just buy a couple of cheap sample pots to help you make your decision.

If you don’t fancy your skills in painting, a good alternative is to buy some wallpaper instead. Wallpaper is cheap to buy and very simple to put up, so you will not have to go out of your way to spruce up the rooms in your house. 

Revamp Your Doors

Another budget-friendly way to spruce up your home is to revamp your doors. When it comes to home improvement, doors and their handles often get overlooked, even though they are a major part of the home. A simple fresh coat of paint is one easy way to refresh and modernise your doors without breaking the bank, and it can make them look almost brand new.

Another good way of revamping your doors is to invest in some new door handles. Brass door handles are a great idea for the interior doors in your home as they are a classic style that will never go out of fashion. This collection of Corston’s door furniture is the perfect place to look when you want to make some fun changes to the doors in your home. 

Put Art On The Walls

If you want your home to look modern and bright, then it could be a good idea to hang some art on the walls. Art is a great way to bring a home to life, as the art will be a representation of your personal style and aesthetic. Not only can art transform a room, but it can also be a great way of expressing yourself through your home décor. Although some art can be a little pricey, there are plenty of cheap ways to get quality pieces of art in your home.

Instead of buying art pieces from a gallery, you should go online and check out some prints by local artists in your area. Buying prints online is very cheap, and you will be doing a good thing by supporting your local artists.

Bring The Outside In

Adding some plants and flowers into the rooms of your home is the perfect way of sprucing up your home on a budget. If you have a garden, then you can start planting your own flowers, which will save you a lot of money in the long run. However, if you did want to opt for more houseplants over flowers, then there are plenty of cheap options available. Take a trip to a garden centre and explore some of the houseplants they have to offer.

The great thing about buying a houseplant is that they are great value for money as they should last you for years to come (if you nurture them well, that is.) If you are worried about not being able to keep the plants alive, then perhaps opt for some low-maintenance houseplants like succulents or spider plants.

Add Rugs To Rooms

Buying some rugs and adding them to the rooms in your home is a super easy and budget-friendly way of sprucing up your home. Rugs can add a lot to a room, and it is an excellent way of adding some colour or pattern to a dull room. If you don’t fancy adding bright colours or patterns to your walls, then a funky rug is the perfect alternative. Rugs are very low maintenance – all they will need is a hoover and a wash every now and then, and they should last you a long time.

If you are unsure where to look for a new rug for your home, then perhaps start the search online and see what you find. Additionally, you could browse your local charity shops and see if you find some hidden treasures.
