If you are lucky enough to own your own home, there’s a good chance that there are 101 jobs around the place that you want to do to get it exactly the way you want it. If you’re recently bought a property, you’ve probably inherited with it from the previous owners a decor scheme that you just don’t love, but moving is an expensive business that you can’t always afford right away. Here, I’m giving you 5 tips of small things you can change which can make a huge difference to your home without needing to spend a fortune, taking it from make-do to high-end..
Changing a whole bathroom suite can be a pricey job, but if the actual bones of the bathroom are in good nick then it’s possible to change the look of the whole room just by changing the taps and other fixings. Go for something shiny and modern, like the Hansgrohe hand shower and dress your bathroom with some colourful accessories for a real decorative freshener.
Something that I find can change the whole feel and look of a room is lighting. Husband and I have lived in so many rented properties which have white or very light walls which we weren’t allowed to hang pictures on, making it feel very igloo-like at times. Investing in some floor standing lamps, table lamps and warm-tone bulbs can really help to make a room feel cosy without any actual decorative touches.
If you hate your flooring, be it carpet, wood or laminate, a great and variable way to switch things up is to add rugs. Rugs can add warmth to a room, make them feel less echoey and can be co-ordinated with your colour scheme to add a lot of personality to a space. Pets will also thnk you if they don’t have to lay on cold, hard flooring!
If you can’t afford to have a whole new kitchen fitted, sometimes it’s possible to just change the doors to your cabinets and drawers which can make it look like a whole new kitchen! Opt for something with a classic style that you won’t get sick of in five minutes and you’ll love your kitchen for the forseeable future.
Paint Your Tiles
Tiling can be an arduous and expensive job, even if you decide to do it yourself, but freshening the tile work that you already have in your kitchen and bathroom is far easier. Tile paint is relatively cheap to buy and comes in a whole rage of colour, which will allow you to completely transform your tiled areas for a fraction of the cost.
