Tips To Furnish Your Home On A Budget

Rearrange Your Furniture

You can change the overall look of a room by simply changing the furniture around. This will make your room look fresh and spacious. Focus on placing furniture close to walls to maximise space. However, try to not have too much furniture in your room as it can look cluttered.

If your creative and enjoy a challenge, you could consider upcycling your existing furniture. Upcycling will allow you to update your furniture without the need to purchase brand new. Therefore, you can keep up with the latest furniture trends and colours on a budget. For example, if your dining chairs are fairly worn, instead of purchasing brand new ones why not try stripping and staining the wooden frames and updating the fabric. This will give older furniture a new lease of life. 

Make Your Room Smell Amazing

As well as looking amazing, you want your home to smell incredible too. Why not consider using some wax melts to make your room smell lovely and fresh? Our website Little Miss Twiggie Twinkles sell beautiful fragrance wax melts for every occasion. They come in a range of scents depending on your preference. I love receiving compliments from guests when my house smells amazing. 

Give Your Headboard a Makeover

Create a gorgeous centrepiece for your room by re-covering your existing headboard with some fabric. You could opt for a plain fabric to match the colours of your bedroom. On the other hand, you could opt for something more pattered to draw attention to your bed and brighten up your bedroom. I love to use Pinterest to find some creative inspiration for giving your home a makeover!

Create a Gallery Wall

Do you have a wall in your house that needs decorating? Creating a gallery wall can instantly transform a plain wall in your home. It is super easy to create and very inexpensive. All you need to create your gallery wall is a selection of prints or photos, frames, and a little creativity. You can experiment with different styles and wall art to match your own personality and home colours. 

Bring the Outdoors Indoors

Investing in some pretty plants and flowers can be an amazing way to furnish your home on a budget. Plants can instantly make a room look beautiful and also have a huge benefit on our well-being. If you are similar to me and struggle to keep plants alive, you could always opt for some fake plants to add some greenery to your home. Fake plants still make a room look amazing without the need to water them. 

Declutter and organise.

A simple way to instantly transform your home is to have a huge declutter and sort out your organisation in each room. Take the time to work your way through your home and get rid of anything you do not use and aim to have a house declutter every three to six months. 

Once you have decluttered, think about ways you can organise your space. For example, you could add shelves to your room or take a look on amazon for some organising tools to allow you to create space in your home you never knew you had.

Use Mirrors in Smaller Rooms

This is a tip I learnt from one of my lovely friends who loves interior design. If you have a smaller room that you want to feel a little bigger, add an oversized mirror to the space. This will create an optical illusion that the space is much larger and will allow the room to capture more natural light. I have used this tip in my spare room, and it has really helped to transform a small and dull room into a room that feels much more open.

Get Painting

A really simple and inexpensive way to furnish your home on a budget is to get creative and paint your walls. You could change the colour of the room if you fancy a change or simply paint over your existing colour to make your room look brighter and neat. If you are painting a smaller room, try choosing a lighter colour to make the room feel more open.

Stick on Tiles

A final and cost-effective way of changing the overall look of a kitchen or bathroom is to use stick-on tiles. Stick on tiles come in a range of different designs and they can be useful in changing the overall look of a room without the need to change anything structural. You can get stick-on tiles specifically designed for your walls or your floor.
