Budget Home Makeover: Small But Impactful Changes That Will Refresh Your Home
It doesn’t have to be Springtime to refresh your home. Sometimes you just get bored looking at the same space, or the decor isn’t inspiring you anymore or your style has just changed. It could be because it’s a new season and you want your home to be warm and cozy for winter or cool and airy in summer. If this happens, you don’t have to do a huge full-scale renovation, very often all it takes are a few tweaks and changes, and even some DIY home decor ideas to make your space look and feel completely new again.
So if you’re planning on doing a budget home makeover, what are some of the changes you can make without doing massive damage to your wallet? Read on for a few ideas!
New Area Rugs
Have you noticed how different a room looks as soon as you go from no rug to rug? That’s because rugs are a very impactful piece of home decor that can totally change the look and feel of a space. Rugs don’t just define the space of a room, they introduce warmth, colour and they also anchor your pieces of furniture so that a room looks more cohesive. If you don’t have a rug in space put one in and see the change it will bring. If you already have a rug, why not change to something with a different colour and texture to breathe new life into the room.
Sometimes refreshing your home doesn’t require the addition of something, but rather a removal. If you have carpets in your home that are too old and worn, why not consider removing them altogether? A lot of the time, the floor underneath carpets is actually quite beautiful, so getting rid of the carpet that has seen better days is a simple way to transform your home.
A Striking Armchair
We all know that a new piece of furniture makes a huge impact on the visual appeal and feel of your home, but it doesn’t have to be a big piece like a couch or large scale bookcase. Sometimes all it takes is one small armchair with great details and finishings to instantly update a room. Imagine a striking green velvet armchair with gold hardware, and how that will immediately add a new focal point to whatever room you put it in. An armchair doesn’t have to cost you a lot of money. You can reupholster an old one, and have the same appeal without breaking the bank.
Modern Home Curtains
Like rugs, curtains have a way of grounding the room and changing its energy. Different colour curtains communicate different emotions and vibes, and just like that, dressing up your windows can dress up the whole space. There are so many modern styles, colours and trimmings for curtains and adding them can be a simple but highly effective way to shake things up in your home.
