Redecorating your home can be a huge, expensive and daunting task with hours and hours spent looking at tile samples or looking for that perfect piece of furniture. But it does not have to be that way. There are plenty of small and cheap ways that you can change things up to create an entirely new living space.
Use the lighting
You should never underestimate the power of light. Introduce some new types of lighting and watch the space magically transform. Get these festoon LED bulbs that can be used indoors or outdoors with cool and warm options as well as colour changing bulbs! You may not have considered coloured bulbs before, so take a look at the room and really think about what colour would suit it best and bring it forward without looking like a school disco.
Colour changing bulbs are perfect because you can try out the whole spectrum and adapt the atmosphere to whatever occasion. Using dimmers can also help you set the right mood and completely customise the lighting for each room (dimmers can also help save energy by regulating how much electricity goes through the lamp).
Change the covers of your furniture
You do not need to buy all new pieces of furniture when you want to redecorate, changing the covers of the furniture you already have is one of the easiest ways to upgrade without spending much money. You can purchase ready-made furniture covers for just about any piece in any colour and pattern you like, or you can pay out a little more and get that old armchair reupholstered by a professional. If you are really budgeting then simply purchase some blankets, throws and cushions to make your old sofa look like new.
Get rid of that clutter
Clutter can make your house look smaller and more hectic. No one appreciates the tasteful décor when there is clutter all over the place distracting them from all the work you have put into creating a beautiful space.
Clutter and mess can also impact your mental health, making you feel overwhelmed and anxious. Remove anything that is not serving a function. This can be old magazines on the coffee table or coasters with no cups on them. Have a place to put things when you tidy up rather than shoving things in a corner. Be mindful of your decoration and consider what in your house can be considered clutter keeping items like vacuum cleaners, remote controls and clothes tucked away out of sight.
Paint the walls
Painting is a great way to decorate on a budget. A new lick of paint can massively improve the interior of a room, you might not realise how grimy the walls get until you have layered on a fresh coat of paint. If you are looking for a change then you can try out some different colours, create a bold feature wall or change the whole room with a subtle new shade – whatever will suit the room best.
