Home Refreshes That Are Small On Spend, Big On Style
No matter how much we love our home, sometimes you may get a little bored with the current living space. Whether it’s the living room or bedroom, it’s where we relax, entertain and feel the most at ease away from the worries of the world.
We may get the sudden itch to shake things up and do a small revamp on a room – but what if you’re on a budget? Refreshing your home doesn’t have to cost a lot. With just a few changes and affordable tweaks, you can fall in love with your space again without spending too much money.
1. Declutter and clean
This is by far the easiest, cheapest way to refresh your room. It is amazing how many unnecessary belongings one can accumulate in their house within a short time. And when you accumulate things that you don’t necessarily need or use often, you increase the amount of clutter in your house.
Utilize your storage spaces to hide away the clutter. Removing small things like accent pillows, vases and art work can also make a small difference in creating a blank canvas to offer you with a fresh, uncluttered perspective. You can always add them back slowly until you reach the perfect balance in keeping the room tidy-looking.
2. Add some greenery
House plants are an easy way to spruce up your design plan. They add colour, shape and life (literally!) to your space. These plants are also inexpensive and budget-friendly while adding high quality foliage.
But you can also treat yourself to larger house plants. This helps you to arrange groups of plants at different heights so you can create a greenery-filled room. Common house plants include Monstera eliciosa, Orchids, Snake plant and Ficus elastica. Aside from being pleasing to the eye, plants are also calming to the mind.
3. Design a statement wall
Update your living room or your bedroom by creating a focal point with your wall. Be it a new paint colour, graphic wallpaper or a wall mural, it is the perfect project to add a dose of visual interest without spending too much for the entire room.
A gallery wall is also an interesting way to fill a blank wall and give the room much needed personality. Use multiple frames in varying sizes – pick them in 2 shades like black and brown for better colour coordination to frame up your personal photos, prints, art and anything else that’s eye-catching.
4. Update your seating
Out of all your furniture at home, the living room sofa is bound to get the most wear and tear. So, if it’s looking like it has seen better days, the rest of the room will a little outdated too. Don’t feel guilty about springing for a brand-new sofa – replacing a couch is usually less expensive than recovering an older one especially once you factor in the cost of fabric and labour.
