Spruce Up Your Home On A Budget

Spruce Up Your Home On A Budget

We all have moments when we feel our home looks tired and dated but where to start? This month we are sharing tips and tricks on how to spruce up your home.

If you are on a tight budget then rest assured we have suggestions that cost very little and some that are free. Next month we will also share tips for others happy to indulge in some retail therapy.

This month we are exploring the cheaper and sometimes free ways to redecorate.

Move furniture - It may sound too simple but you may be surprised with the fresh look it can offer to your home. For example, you may find that rearranging your sofa will free up more space and change the overall look of your living room.

Flowers - You can further highlight your room’s colours, patterns and textures with carefully considered bouquets which nod to your chosen theme.

Fruit - Perhaps a simpler and an even cheaper option than flowers, a bowl of fresh fruit can add vibrancy and again, if colour coordinated, can complement the room’s desired look and style.

Plants - Another cost conscious way of adding to a room and filling in dead space. Plants can add a splash of colour and from a health point of view, they oxygenate rooms and filter the air around you. Ideal for a home office to keep those concentration levels up.

Groups of 3 - Plants, candles, small ornaments and decorative pieces in general are aesthetically pleasing to the eye when grouped in 3s.

Time - Sometimes it does take a while for all your ideals to fall into place. Mull things over, do your own research and carefully plan your rooms out. Pinterest is ideal for inspiration and collecting ideas into one organised space.

We have included our Venice range here in cream high gloss. Note the small highlights around the room that really bring the room together and fully complement the final look.
