It's easy to get overwhelmed when you want to update the look and feel of your home on a budget. Take the stress out of decorating and get started today by following these easy tips.
Get rid of any unnecessary items and clean up your flat surfaces. You might like to try out some creative storage ideas like adding a mirror cabinet or utilising different drawers and racks.
This is often a very cost effective method as simply changing your bathroom linen can change the look of your bathroom entirely.
A neutral bathroom colour scheme is your best friend when it comes to decorating. It allows you to add on-trend pops of colour and have the flexibility to change things up whenever you need a refresh. Artwork can look amazing in bathrooms, plants breathe new life into spaces, and even things like a freestanding towel rack or side table for your bath tub can help make your bathroom feel luxurious.
New taps, vanity handles, and towel rails can change and lift an entire room, even if you can't afford to go all out on updated fixtures.
You can buy special paints for tiles and cabinetry from your local hardware store for a fast and affordable bathroom makeover. Go for a classic palette of black and white or other soft neutrals to allow your decor to really stand out.
This simple trick makes almost any room feel a lot larger and will create a more social space. Moving things just a few centimetres can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel of the room.
A miminal decor theme can often become boring and even unfriendly. So add some coffee table books to add interest, artwork for pops of colour, and mementos to breathe some personality in your living areas.
Layers add warmth to a room so add some scatter cushions and include a luxurious throw on your lounge or arm chairs. Refreshing these items seasonally is also an easy way to make your living area seem new again.
Furniture that sits off the floor helps to open up a space, making the room feel larger.
Not sure how big the rug should be? The general rule is to make sure your furniture is just touching the rug. Give your lounge a measure before you head to the shops to make sure you get the right size for your space.
Don't forget, if you're taking on a major project or need some help be sure to hire the appropriate tradesperson for the job.
