Everyone loves a good refresh, and many of us still have more time on our hands. We’ve looked into some cheap and easy ways you can redecorate your home without breaking the budget!
1. New flooring
A new floor can completely transform a room, and there are now impressively cheap but beautiful ways to achieve that. Vinyl flooring has become more popular than ever, especially with a chic grey wooden finish that makes any floor really pop. Vinyl flooring is easy to lay yourself, so you don’t have to worry about labour costs, and is great value for a few rolls. There are all sorts of colours and patterns to choose from so you can pair it with your furniture, and it will be the talking point of every conversation once it’s finished.
2. Revamping windows
Replacing windows is an expensive option, but there are ways that you can bring some life into your old windows for a fraction of the price. Opting for decorative curtains in colours that match your colour scheme can make older windows look fresh, or roman blinds if you’re not a fan of curtains. For windows in bathrooms or rooms that are front-facing and not as private as you may like, you can look at window stickers. There are all sorts of patterns that you can get for these windows, but frosted are often a popular choice. These are great as they are temporary- if you decide that you no longer like the pattern you’ve opted for, or are selling your house and want to return the windows to normal, you can just peel the sticker off.
3. A splash of paint
The best way to redecorate any house is a fresh coat of paint. Whether you choose to repaint the same colour and just remove any scuffs and marks to brighten the walls up, or fancy a complete change and go for a new colour, painting your house is the perfect addition to any redecoration plans. If you’re redecorating to sell your house, choosing neutral colours is a better option as it will let visitors imagine their own furniture in the property and not let them be put off because of colour taste. If you’re redecorating for you, however, then you can pick any colour your heart desires! Bright colours are becoming a staple in homes, with feature walls being a favourite.
Upcycling became hugely popular in the midst of the lockdown where we were all stuck at home and looking for anything to fill our time with. Upcycling is a great way to renovate furniture, keeping costs down and coming out with something unique. From sanding and painting units to dying sofas, there’s an upcycling project for everyone that will make your home stand out.
Redecorating is all about finding what you love and what you’ll be happy surrounded by. A freshly decorated home is one of the best feelings, especially when you see all your hard work paid off! These tips should help you find the best ways to get your home looking like new while on a budget.
