Revamping your home on a budget
When it comes to revamping your interior design, it can often feel too expensive, and therefore we put it off and make do with what we have - yet there are a few ways to revamp your interiors on a budget.
After all, we’re not talking about remodelling, just freshening things up and creating a bit of change within our home environment.
Let's to look at a number of ways you can add a touch of interior style to your home without it breaking the bank.
1. PAINT THE WALLS
Sometimes, it can be as simple as giving the walls and ceiling a lick of paint - particularly if you have white walls that have gone a little yellow over time. Brightening up your room with a new coat of white paint (the cheapest paint colour) can add a huge amount of light and brightness to a room - feeling much fresher whilst costing very little.
In the alternative, if you wanted something a little different, you could create a feature wall that is painted in a prominent colour - either something deep and trendy for a burst of intense colour or something more subtle such as a pastel shade.
The great thing with painting, is it doesn’t require much equipment so you can do it yourself, though if you’re budget allows for it, getting a company like Brisbane House Painters can save you a lot of time and hassle.
2. RUGS & CURTAINS
Whilst changing the carpet in your home can be quite expensive, you can add a statement rug for much less money. The cost of the rug will depend on the size and quality you're after, but we LOVE the range available at West Elm. They have solid, pattern, round and even nursery rugs available at various price points.
3. ADD PLANTS
Indoor plants are a great way to freshen up a space and add some vibrancy with their deep greens and bright florals. There are many health benefit too, though in the most part, they provide a great addition to your home, for little money, but with a large impact.
4. RECLAIMED WOOD
Furniture made from reclaimed pallets and fruit crates has been on trend for many years now and this upcycling rustic trend shows no signs of declining. In fact, all you need to do is look at Pinterest to see all the interior design inspiration that features fairy lights and apple crates or driftwood; much of which can be sourced at little cost.
5. FAIRY LIGHTS
It’s incredible how much of an impact lighting has within a home - particularly the cheap fairy lights that have become so popular in recent years. Ambient lighting is the key to ensuring your home offers you a cosy cave of relaxation - adding a feeling of warmth and peace.
Fairy lights, also known as string lights, are a great way to achieve this ambient lighting style - as candles tend to offer more of a rustic winter vibe, and their fragile flame doesn’t tend to get on well with air conditioning units.
