How To Update Your Home On A Budget

Small changes around the home can make a real difference and there’s no need to break the bank in order to transform your room into a space that feels brand new. In our latest blog, we go through some small changes that you can make to spruce your your space in your home with one little change at a time.

Paint your fireplace


If you’ve got a fireplace in your living room or bedroom, a great way to freshen up your space is to apply a new colour. This will instantly change the style of your room as the fireplace is a lovely focal point. Once you’ve decided on the colour, you can then play around with new decor ideas on and around your fireplace for a minimal and low-cost spend. If you’ve got a dark fireplace matched with dark walls, apply white paint to your fireplace to instantly brighten up the space. Alternatively, if you’ve got white walls and white fireplace, paint it black to make the space pop.

As the weather starts to get colder, opt for a fluffy rug like this one from Wayfair, which will make your room feel a lot more cosy and warm for the winter months. During summer, go for a light fabric rug with bright patterns to lighten up the space.
