Buying a house is a significant investment, and sometimes finding additional money to spend on renovations and refurbishments can be challenging.
But the good news is, you can take some small, simple steps to help make your house feel like a home.
Try these four budget-friendly style tips to add personality to your place:
1. Go green!
Indoor plants are an easy way to help your house come to homey life. If you’re not a green thumb, start simple. With a bit of planning, plants breathe fresh energy into your living space without a big spend.
2. Swap cool globes for warm ones
Globes that emit cool light can make a space feel less friendly. Swapping cool globes for warmer tones won’t cost a fortune – and will help your space feel more welcoming.
3. Sink into cosy soft furnishings
A new rug or two, plus cuddly cushions and throws on an old couch can add personality and comfort, without breaking your budget.
4. Add a splash of colour
To help zone your living space into areas for work and relaxation, adding some fresh paint can help create a very different look. If you DIY, it doesn’t have to cost a lot. But if painting isn’t in your budget, colour can be brought into your home in lots of interesting ways, from candles to vases, flowers, crockery, glassware and artwork too.
