If you’re craving a home makeover but simply don’t have the time or budget then follow these tips for a simple, quick and easy AND cheap update to make your home feel loved again. Enjoy your space and implement these quick updates.
Install new door handles
Install new door handles into all the rooms in your house. This doesn’t have to cost a fortune, especially when sourcing second-hand décor. Do it even more cheaply if you’re just doing up one room or space. Find new, bold and modern door handles for your kitchen and bathroom cabinets, for the doors or furniture in the bedrooms and living spaces.
Install new hardware
Install new hardware in your kitchen and bathrooms. This can really have a huge impact on the space, at a fraction of the cost of redoing the space. If you’ve never remodelled your bathrooms and kitchen before then it’s probably about time their hardware got updated with new taps and handles. While taps are usually pretty simple in design, they are often outdated in homes that haven’t been remodelled more recently.
Switch out the décor
Most of us have far too much on display in our homes. Simplify your spaces by only having a few much-loved pieces as focal points in the room. You don’t need to actually get rid of anything but pack the rest away for later use. When you’re feeling like you need to redecorate again, get out your old pieces and mix them up. This will quickly give you the feeling of a new, lively design, without you having to spend a single cent.
As the lounge is usually the biggest item in our living spaces and the bed the biggest in our bedrooms, they’re generally the focal point of the room. Liven up the space by incorporating new bold furnishings, like throw pillows and blankets to make a statement. Plus they’re super comfy and practical, it’s a win-win.
Create a statement wall
Create a statement wall in the living or dining room by either painting one wall in a brighter or bolder colour or give it an update with some bold textured or patterned wallpaper. This is a quick and dramatic way of livening up your space in no time.
Add a large print
Adding a large print or photograph to your designated makeover room can make a huge impact on the space. Whether it’s a bold and quirky print or a classic black and white photograph, it will become the focal point of the room and a great talking piece for when guests come over.
Find a new rug
A new rug heavily impacts your space because it’s such a large piece in any room. Whether you already have one in the room or not, it’s time for an update. Try a bold pattern and colour if the room is a little drab and boring or on the other hand try a neutral tone in a shaggy style if the room needs a refresh and some softening up.
