Save Money on Home Renovations by Using These Smart Decor Tricks Instead

Save Money on Home Renovations by Using These Smart Decor Tricks Instead

Add a stair carpet

If you have a wooden stairwell then placing a simple stair carpet will enhance the look and make it a little less slippery when you go upstairs in your socks.

Move your furniture around

Sometimes all it takes for us to feel like the room is entirely new is a different furniture layout. Breaking up the routine that you’re used to will make your home feel a little different and this is often enough of a makeover for people to be satisfied. Moving furniture around can be time-consuming so make sure you plan a weekend for it and use the opportunity to clean up the areas where your furniture has been sitting.

Don’t leave walls bare

Be it adding a clock, paintings, framed pictures or even a small hanger to place things like your keys and wallet, don’t leave your walls bare because it’s a fantastic source of extra storage and decor space. If you have large unused spaces in your rooms, then we would recommend adding shelves for extra storage space.

Fill your shelves

Just like your walls, empty shelves are a waste of space and they’re a fantastic place to put personalised decor pieces like trinkets, awards and memorabilia. You could fill them with books, music collections, important documents, photographs or even small potted plants. This will make your home look busier and give it a completely different personality.

Focus on your doors

Many people underestimate just how much of a difference door accessories can make to the general feel of a room. For instance, the handles could be improved to give a door a more unique and polished appearance, and replacing rusting and old hinges will add a pleasant yet subtle touch to your home.

Add a kitchen splashback

A kitchen splashback is inexpensive and very easy to install especially if it comes in a single sheet or piece. You can purchase splashbacks with unique designs, patterns or even messages to make your cooking area a little nicer.

Place plants around the home

Potted plants can be added virtually anywhere to the home since they’re relatively small, they come in many shapes and colours, and they’re easy to take care of. You can even use larger potted plants in corners of the room that would otherwise be empty.

Upgrade your lighting

Be it replacing an old lampshade, cleaning dusty bulbs or even swapping them out for inexpensive LED lights, it’s very easy to upgrade your lighting and you’d be surprised at just how big of a difference it makes to the overall feel of your home.

 

Hopefully, these tips have given you some budget ideas for decor changes. You often don’t need to renovate your entire home to get the feeling of a fresh and unique house, so try these little tricks first before you decide that you really need a complete house makeover.
