When you’re renovating your home or moving into a new space, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the possibilities. Whether you are putting your own personal touch on a new space or remodelling an empty space into a functional home, you want to decide on the look you are trying to create. It’s important to consider the style you want to achieve, the function of the space, and your resources. Even the smallest changes can make a big difference in your space.
There is much to be said for a lick of paint, some simple upgrades to your furniture and several well-chosen plants and ornaments to give your home the update you crave without breaking the bank. Whether you have money set aside to complete your upgrade or you are going to do it in stages when you have money come in that can be spared, it’s worth writing a wish and wants list before starting so you can stay on track and ensure you prioritise the things that really need doing first.
Upgrading your window decorations to refresh your rooms
When you are working with a low budget and you have to renovate your old home, you have to make some sacrifices. One of the first things to go is the window decorations. If you have an older house, you can make some really nice window decorations with some paint and varnish. You can paint the window frames in any colour you want and then varnish them to make them shine and make them last longer.
if you are looking to add the illusion of space in your rooms and you currently have curtains, it may be worth swapping your current choice out for some well-placed blinds. Blinds are a great way of making your room look bigger and can help with light and privacy controls. Choose your favourite colours, patterns, and styles to match your theme. Visit your Aylesbury blind shop to get a real feel for your blind choices. This is a simple renovation that will make your house look more special.
Modernising your furniture with budget ideas
In the last decade, a lot has changed in the world of interior design. People have stopped caring about the old style and have started looking for something different, preferably something that will last for years. The good news is, you can still enjoy a modern interior design on a budget. The only thing you need to do is to make the most of the furniture you already have! Upgrade it by using furniture paint or different fabrics and suddenly you have a completely new look without having to pay a fortune on new sofas and chairs.
Either match your furniture with the colours in your room or choose a splash of colour that will not only complement your natural colour palette but bring it to life and give your room some character. Your furniture is the place where you can really show off your personality but don’t forget it also needs to be a place where you can rest comfortably at the end of the day!
