Cheap Decor Tips To Update Your Home

If you've been wanting to update your home but have a limited budget, there's really no need to put your plans at home.

There are lots of ways to update your home cheaply, without compromising on style or quality.

Here are some cheap decor tips to update your home that suit all budgets.

Make a feature of your windows

Most rooms have windows, and in a lot of cases, these windows can be quite beautiful, so why not make a feature out of them? 

Shutters are a great idea for those who want to add elegant style and practicality to their home. Shutters don't have to be expensive either. 

DIY Shutters can cost less than 40-50% less than full service shutter installation companies. They're easy to measure and install as DIY Shutters UK offer lots of guides and video guidance for homeowners to follow. They offer made-to-measure window shutters in a range of styles, finishes and colours.

There are lots of DIY plantation shutters styles to choose from too, so you're bound to find the perfect shutters to suit your home.



Hang up artwork or photographs

Adding artwork or photographs to your walls can immediately uplift a room.

Gallery walls are a really popular and striking choice and having a mixture of prints and photographs in the colour scheme of your room can make for a beautiful style choice.

Different sizes frames also add to the effect. You can pick up artwork prints quite cheaply from artists on Etsy or in local gift shops.


Upcycle your old furniture

Upcycling is a great way of adding a new lease of life to a piece you love but that may not suit your style tastes any longer. 

Upcyling can be done quite cheaply, but from experience I would recommend priming the furniture first (if it's wooden) and using a very good quality paint to avoided dreaded paint drips while it's drying!

If you'd like some new pieces for your home but can't afford the costly price tag of some furniture items, then taking a visit to charity or second-hand furniture shops or even taking a look at Facebook Marketplace for local sellers can really pay off and leave you with some gorgeous furniture for a fraction of the price of a new piece.

Be thifty

Not everything in your home needs to be new, in fact, but buying preloved, we not only find pieces which we love and quite cheaply too, but it's good for the planet.

Some of my most favourite pieces in my home are preloved, but I have made them my own and I absolutely love how they've added to the style and feel of my home.

Old thrifted jugs, vases and glass bottles are great for displaying fresh and artificial flowers in. Thrifted fabrics can be turned into beautiful soft furnishings. You can find a whole range of unique pieces for your home for cheap.

Never underestimate the power of paint

A lick of paint can really transform a whole room and quite cheaply too. Since buying our old cottage farmhouse last year we've transformed it from an old, cold feeling home into a bright and beautiful family home, full of colours we love.

Painting is a great way of changing the whole feel of a room without breaking the bank and it doesn't take a whole lot of effort either - if you don't mind picking up a paintbrush of course!

Hopefully these tips can help you to update your home cheaply and beautifully in styles that you love.
