10 tips to a better home – on a budget

Ready to spruce up your home in time for spring but having a few cash flow problems? Don’t worry. Here are ten budget-friendly tips to take your home out of the doom and gloom of winter:

1. Be bright and daring

A lick of paint can be a fantastic way to brighten up or refresh a room – but painting an entire room can be costly and time-consuming. So why not try a feature wall? Buy a small tin of paint and be daring! Try something out of your comfort zone for a bright new look that’s sure to be a talking point.

2. Light it up

Give a room a whole new look by changing the lighting. Just placing a few lamps in different parts of the room can change its appearance, lending emphasis where it’s needed.

3. Get moving

If you have no money at all but are desperate for a change, simply moving a few bits of furniture around the room can help you create a whole new look for nothing – although you might work up a sweat!

4. Get arty

Make a statement with a large canvas or two – it can be a real talking point, but also cover up a grubby wall!

5. On reflection

And if art isn’t your thing, a large mirror not only looks great but can make a room seem bigger and brighter.

6. Tooling up

If you have some minor DIY jobs to complete, check out your local pound shop for cheap and cheerful screwdrivers, paintbrushes and more.

7. Better bedding

Why not brighten up a tired bedroom with some new bedding. A fresh new duvet cover can bring a new lease of life to your room.

8. Just kidding

All the family can get involved in sprucing up the house. Why not get the kids to make some fun garlands and bunting – and maybe frame some of their works of art?

9. Be charitable

Your local charity shop can be a great place to pick up fun bits and pieces. Look out for boxes of old picture frames – get a whole bunch of these and add your old photos to liven up a tired wall.

10. Throw something on

If your sofa has seen better days but you can’t afford to replace it, blankets and throws can be bought cheaply and are a great way to liven up and brighten your living space.
