It’s a well known fact that when you change a couple of bits in your home, here and there, it can potentially increase the value of your home. However, many of us aren’t in a position to do this on a large scale, due to varying reasons, but mainly money issues.
A study from Payplan recently revealed that 30% of the UK population just wing their finances from month to month – so definitely consider this when you’re looking to make a few changes to your home!
Pop to your local garden centre, or even a supermarket and grab some indoor plants to liven up your home. Make sure you go for plants that are near enough impossible to kill, such as succulents! Indoor greenery can instantly change the way a room looks, particularly if you’ve got a monochrome palette to play with! This is a quick and cheap way of transforming your house; even by purchasing a trio of mini cacti for a shelf or side table.
Change up your cushions:
Deep, darker colours are perfect for the colder months, but as we’ve transitioned into summer, changing your cushion covers can make your living room look completely different depending on what is on your sofa. Opt for light greys, blush pinks, geometric and tropical print to stay on trend. Luckily, cushion covers are very affordable, and can be a very cheap alternative to changing your sofa and rug, which can often cost thousands! Take a look at H&M for stylish covers for as little as £4.
Get your walls to stand out:
Often, it’s your walls that can make a room feel dated. Consider a feature wall, which can be transformative with just a little lick of paint! Gone are the days where wallpapered feature walls were a thing, you’re able to grab a tin of paint for just £10; teal green shades and deep blues are perfect for when you’re looking to change the look of a room.
Let light in:
Did you know that mirrors can completely open up a room? They give the illusion of a bigger space and reflect light that can totally brighten the area. Mirrors can be picked up for a decent price nowadays, and in decent quality. It will also act as a feature piece within room, like a dining area, above your table; the perfect way to complete redecorating!
