Giving your home a makeover can be expensive, but don’t let this hold you back from making the changes you want to see in your living spaces. With these simple tips, you can renovate your home for less, and get the living spaces you want without having to break the bank and dip into your savings.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
Giving a room a fresh look can be easily and inexpensively achieved by simply adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls.
This doesn’t have to be a long and disruptive process either. Many major paint manufacturers have websites and apps that can use photos you upload of your room to digitally apply colours to your space. This is much better than using a sample pot or swatches to imagine how your room will look in a new shade. This cuts down on the time it takes to choose your new colour and can help save you money on using samples or repainting a colour you decide you don’t like.
Add Some Art to the Walls
If you want to brighten up your living spaces and add colour and interest quickly and easily, then you should consider buying or making some art to hang on your walls.
There are plenty of places you can go to online to find interesting and unique art for your walls, and you can even make some yourself if you are feeling crafty. The generic art that you may find in stores is often uninspiring and dull, so think outside of the box and look for something colourful and unique that will bring style and depth to your spaces.
Get Some New Furniture for Less
If you think your spaces need some new furniture, don’t fall into the trap of buying self-assembly furniture online or from outlet stores. Instead, look locally online for some bargains.
People are often selling some great furniture that is of high-quality and in excellent condition, usually online on sites like Facebook Marketplace. You can find some fantastic bargains that may be for sale just a few streets away from your home. This type of furniture is often much more attractive and hard-wearing than the furniture available from stores like Ikea, and for cheaper prices too.
Take Advantage of Deals and Coupons
A pound saved is a pound earned! By using coupons for renovation supplies and by looking for bargains and deals in special sales, you can save a small fortune on your home makeover.
The supplies you need to renovate a space, and the fixtures and fittings you need to complete your look can be very expensive. Coupons that offer just five or ten per cent off a purchase price can represent a saving of hundreds of pounds. You can save some money when doing DIY renovations by looking for coupons and special deals.
