With Christmas out of the way and all of the decorations packed away for another year, it always seems to leave the home feeling bare. So what better time to give your home a revamp and it won’t cost you the earth! Take a look at some of these easy tips to get a new look on a budget.
Print Your Own Wall Art
This is the most easiest of all tips to funk up a room. You don’t need to be a budding artist, or a tech guru to achieve this. I used Pic Monkey to make these simple prints and put them in existing frames I had.
Upcycle Your Existing Furniture
We recently gave the downstairs toilet a lick of paint and added the mosaic splash back. With it being quite a small space, I thought a nice big mirror would give it more depth, so I used an old pine mirror. I got a little tester tub of paint from B&Q which was under £2.00 and now we have a mirror that ties in perfectly with the room.
Make A Feature Wall
The perfect way to brighten up a room is to create a colourful focal point. This could be a wallpapered wall or chimney breast.

Or you could use a wall to create a photo collage, using different frames.

Have A Move Around
It’s surprising how you can transform a room just by having a little move around with your furniture. I change mine quite often and you can create loads more space.
Change Colour Scheme
Another simple way to change the look of a room without paying against the odds, is to inject a different colour scheme. A perfect example would be the kitchen. You could change the colours of your accessories for a fresh new look. You could even change the style of your theme, say you have stainless steel accessories, you could swap those for country style accessories for a total new theme.
Make Your Own Soft Furnishings
With our house being quite a big barn conversion, we have quite a few windows to dress and none are average sizes with it being an old building, so they have to be custom made. However making them ourselves would save an absolute fortune, so that’s what we did! We went to a fabric shop and bought this lovely fabric and made some curtains, recovered an old lamp shade and made some cushion covers with what we had left over.
So there you have it!
