No matter what your budget, you can make stylish updates to your home. Whether you want to renovate your entire house, or just upgrade your family bathroom. Add a skylight to your bedroom. Or replace worn flooring. Here we have some affordable ideas that will make your dream home a reality and make you wonder why you ever thought of leaving it…
Stairs are often the first thing you see when you walk in to a house through the front door, so why not make them a bit of a feature by updating yours with a smart and stylish stair runner. Whether you like bright, bold colours or something a little more subtle and subdued, a new stair runner could give your stairs a well deserved and affordable face lift.
A gorgeous fireplace
A beautiful fireplace can be such a focal point to any room so if you have one in your home, make it stand out. It certainly beats the latest smart television as a focal point that most people seem to have these days. Bring back all the character it once had with the original tiles or modernise it with a beautiful wooden beam, whatever suits your style.
A coat of paint can often work wonders as a quick fix, but if your front door really has had its day then you could invest in a new one to make a great first impression, we all want that stunning kerb appeal don’t we?! With many companies these days, you can even design your own to suit your every day needs and style, whether you want something bold to stand out, a door full of glass to let the light pour in or something a bit more solid to keep intruders out!
You can transform a space in an instant with a clever choice of flooring. Whether you love the engineered oak flooring look. Or perhaps tiles, or carpet is more your style. A fresh new floor can do wonders for sprucing up a space without spending a fortune. Completely changing the look and feel of the room without too much effort.
Fixtures and fittings
You’d be surprised at how different a room can feel just by switching up the fixtures and fittings. For example, perhaps you would love a new kitchen but can’t quite afford to do it just yet. That’s OK, maybe you could just change all the door handles with gorgeous new ones for now or get new light switches to match your theme. It’s a very affordable way to give a space a new lease of life without having to spend much time or money on it.
Shutters can make a statement in any room in a home, transforming it from old and boring to new and exciting. Plus, they also provide privacy and are a cool way to filter light, especially if you get a lot of natural light in through your windows. You could either team your shutters with light, romantic drapes or do away with all other window treatments altogether and have them as more of a feature.
