If you haven’t got the budget available to revamp your home on a bigger scale, you’ll be happy to know that you can make small changes to your home that can make a big difference without it costing the earth. Here are a few tips for providing your home with a little refresh.
Fill In The Cracks
It happens over time naturally where paint can become slightly worn in places, perhaps cracked around joins in the wall and ceilings. The same goes for the wooden flooring which can easily form a few problem areas. A cheap and effective way of making the interiors look brand new is to cover these scuffs and cracks over with filler. There’s plenty of fillers out there, just check out the 7 best wood fillers to buy in 2019. That’ll give you a good starting point, and the process of filling in cracks is really simple that anyone can do it. Once you’ve filled them in, you’ll have a blank canvas to paint over it.
Rearrange The Furniture
A really simple thing that often isn’t done a lot in households because let’s face it, it can be a bit of a pain to do it. However, rearranging the furniture in your home can end up making your home feel like a brand new place. When you first move into a property, you place everything in a position that you think works for you at that time. But fast forward a few years later, and you may be able to rotate the sofa around to face a different way, and the result is a whole new look for your living space. Go room by room and try and move the bulkier items in your home to see what difference it can make to your space.
Add A Fresh Coat Of Paint
The walls may be lacking the vivid colours you once had painted on, or perhaps the clean cream or neutral colours have become a little dirty-looking. Paint isn’t as expensive as buying numerous pieces of art to put on the wall, so if money is tight, buy some paint! Go for a new colour that will complement the furniture already in your home and don’t be afraid to use bold shades that reflect who you are and your personality. Avoid wallpaper as this can make things complicated, but if you want patterns, you could always try your hand at stencils. If you mess up, just paint over it and start again!
Buy Affordable Textiles
There’s no point in buying a new armchair, bed or dining chair if they’re already in good quality condition. Instead, why not buy some affordable textiles like throws, cushions, and covers for chairs. You can do the same if your furniture is maybe looking a little worn, but you are not able to buy a new set of dining chairs at the moment. There’s plenty of affordable options that can help mask and cover up the damage for the time being. If your room is quite plain, then bursts of colour from patterned cushions would really give the room some excitement.
