May 3, 2022

Rejuvenating your home does not have to cost a lot; instead, it is possible to breathe new life into your home using various cost-effective ideas. So, if you are looking for clever ways to change things up without breaking the bank, look no further.

Declutter

It is easy for clutter to creep in and take over, making rooms feel oppressive and smaller than they really are. Whether it is a complete redecoration or just a refresh you are after, start by having a good declutter. It will open up space allowing you to better envisage how to change a room or make it feel like the comfortable space you previously enjoyed again. Selling unused items can also be an intelligent way to pad out your redecorating budget.

Wallplanks

If you love the idea of a natural look in your home, but cannot stretch to traditional wood paneling, then look no further than Wallplanks. Authentic wood veneer that you can attach to the wall wherever you choose. And there is no need to wonder how to DIY install Wallplanks, as there are full instructions on the website. Enjoy the satisfaction of creating a stylish, high-end look yourself at a fraction of the cost. 

Prints

Art appreciation is not only for those who can afford original paintings by the masters. There is no shame in hanging prints of your favorite paintings, so that you can enjoy them all of the time. Look in second-hand stores for exciting frames or get simple, inexpensive black frames for a clean look. For something a bit different, movie and music posters work excellently in frames, as does homemade artwork.

Refresh Furniture

It is not only the walls that can be refreshed to make a room feel updated, but furniture can also benefit from a makeover. Try giving shelving units a pop of color by painting the insides of the shelf areas. Doing so not only makes it feel like a new unit, but adds subtle interest to the room it is in. For a less subtle look, re-upholster furniture in new fabric or cover drawers in self-adhesive vinyl for something new. You can try this also on your vintage record display shelf to make it more appealing. 

Plants

Plants literally bring life to a room, so if you are not already a fan, try adding a few to your home can see how they add a new dimension to the place. And fear not, if you think you’re the type of person who kills plants, there are plenty of hardy indoor plants to choose from. A cast iron plant or a jade plant in a pretty pot will happily thrive with minimal attention in the living room corner. In return, they’ll freshen the air and bring a sense of calm to the minds of those around them.
