Revamping your home doesn’t mean you need to do a full renovation to make it look new and fresh. There are many smaller things you can do that can surprisingly make all the difference. If you’re looking to make changes on a smaller budget, check out these handy ways to update your home without breaking the bank.
Declutter your home
The first place to start before you do anything is to take stock of what you have and what you could get rid of. Decluttering will help you create space and re-evaluate different areas of your property. This step could also give you inspiration for other uses of the space. Anything you throw out doesn’t have to go straight in the bin either. Why not donate old items or sell them on local community groups such as Facebook Marketplace?
Add some indoor plants
Indoor plants are a big trend at the moment, and they’re not set to go anywhere fast. Bringing nature inside can help to purify the air in your surroundings. Plus, they look pretty too. You can choose from larger floor-standing plants to smaller varieties that sit perfectly on shelving. If you’re not green-fingered, then there’s also the option of artificial plants. You won’t get the health benefits, but it’ll certainly brighten your interiors and living areas.
Make your living area feel cozy and luxury
Texture in a living space can add a luxe look to the room. However, it also creates a warm and cozy vibe. It’s easy to add different textures in the space with throws, rugs, and cushions, and there are a variety of options available, including faux fur, velvet, and woven materials. Plus, you could also opt for curtains instead of blinds to make the space feel cozy. Curtains are also great for reducing noise and managing light coming into the room.
Save space in your bathroom
If you have a standard radiator in the bathroom, it could be a great idea to replace it with a vertical style. This style of the radiator is a great option for those that have a much smaller bathroom, as you don’t have to waste space to fit in a standard, and often, clunky horizontal version. When the vertical radiator is just as efficient at heating a room, but offers the benefit of space-saving, what could be better?

Update your lighting
Lighting can make or break the mood in a room. Different lighting can be used for different occasions. However, to create an ambient and relaxing atmosphere in your living spaces opting for warming light can help. To add some mood lighting, you could also choose lamp features rather than main fittings to position light in different areas of the room. If you can, take full advantage of the natural light coming into your home and place mirrors in locations to reflect it into the room.
These are just a few of the ways to update your home on a budget. Why not try a few ideas in your living spaces?
