How To Spruce Up Your Home On a Budget

Thinking of improving your home this summer? We imagine you are. You found this site after all. But perhaps you are facing the same problem we all have. Trying to fit a redesign in your budget.

Unsurprisingly, this can be quite a challenging task. Think about what a redesign can involve. You may be ripping out walls and installing extensions. But would you believe it does not have to be that complicated? Let’s look at some easy ways to improve your home when your bank account is already stretched.

A Quick Clean And Tidy

It is quite amazing what a could tidy can do for your home. Think about it. How much furniture do you have out that you do not even use? Or, what about all those knick knacks that just take up space. You may not even like them. They were gifts that you could not refuse. Put all these things away and get a new perspective of your home. Once you have gotten rid of the clutter you can delve into a good old fashioned, cleaning. Thoroughly clean your home and make it shine. This may be all you needed to do to get a fresh, better house. But, if you are still looking for improvements we have got some more ideas.


Curtains are great. You will not kill yourselves trying to put them up. There's not a lot of DIY know how involved in the installation. Plus, they can completely change the appearance of a room. If you want your home to look more modern, curtains can do that. But they can also be very practical. For instance, if you are having trouble sleeping you may want to install some blinds. You can find cheap blinds online. Be a rockstar and block out the morning sun. We do recommend you match the colour of your new curtains or blinds to the aesthetic of the desired room.


How about a fresh link of paint to some of your room. We usually try this every summer. It is an excellent way of making your home look fresh and new again. We love this idea and you will too. Just pop down to you nearest DIY store and select a colour. Do use samples first to see whether the chosen shade matches the desired room. Painting is fun but it also quite cheap so you can try it as many times as you like. Although, bare in mind that darker colours will need more layers to paint over them.

New Equipment

Not into DIY? Too lazy to clean and tidy? Not to worry, you can always just go shopping. Look for deals online or on TV ads. If you are buying furniture, think of it like buying a car. More often than not you will not have to pay the full price. Or, what about a little more tech in your life. It is never a bad time to think about getting a new TV. You can mount it to the wall to save space and add some surround speakers for a truly cinematic experience. Do not forget to include your kids. They love their room being updated.

We hope you found these ideas helpful. Remember, your home is like a blank page. You can add whatever you want to make it more attractive and colourful.
