How to spruce up your space on a budget

Looking for some tips? Our budget-friendly home updates will help you create your dream home without playing havoc with your bank account.


Refresh the walls with paint:

If things are looking a little dull but you can’t quite put your finger on the reason why, your rooms may be in need of a lick of paint. There are plenty of paint décor options to choose from, so it’s time to get inspired! A little goes a long way, so giving your room a quick paint refresh isn’t going to set you back too much.

Select a simple white to clean up your home while keeping things modern, or find a tasteful colour combination to add some personality to your home. For a small but significant change to your space, why not paint your front door? There are lots of bright and sunny colours to choose from, as well as contemporary neutral palettes for the more minimalistic homes.


Revamp the rooms with rugs and runner:

If you’re a fan of wood flooring or your carpet is looking a little tired, your space can easily be transformed by a stylish rug or runner. Stick to the seasons with a shaggy rug in the winter and a geometric, beachy rug in the summer, or enjoy year-round elegance with a natural rug in cream, grey or beige.


Upgrade your space with quirky wall art:

Are your walls looking a bit bare? Brighten up your space and spark some interest with quirky wall art. From prints and canvases to plaques and framed art, our collection of wall art will leave you spoilt for choice.


Add style with striking curtains:

It’s surprising just how easily the right set of curtains can transform your home. For those who have never done it before, the idea of putting up curtains can feel a little overwhelming. But with our handy curtain fitting guide, putting up your curtains doesn’t have to be difficult. From bright and colourful styles to whites, blacks and greys, there’s a design to suit every space. If you’re wondering how to choose curtains for your living room, then take a look at our collection of curtains and blinds to get inspired.


Live lavishly with luxury bedding:

If your bedroom is in need of a spruce-up, you don’t have to spend lots of money on new pieces of furniture to notice a difference. Even something as simple as changing your bedsheets can transform the whole feel of the room, and new bedding is often a lot more cost-effective than replacing your furniture. If you’re already happy with your bedding, you can easily add some luxury home décor to your bedroom by updating your cushions. Replace your cushion covers each time the seasons change, or pick up a matching throw and cushion set to keep things looking cohesive.


Illuminate the space with statement lighting:

Old lighting can easily date your home and leave things looking tired. If you’re after a modern touch, add spotlights or an illuminated mirror to your home, while indoor wall lights, floor lamps and table lamps can add character and personality. Updating your lamp shade is another simple way to bring a new feel to your home. Read more about how you can light up your home in our lighting buying guide.


Add interest with accent chair:

Bold and eye-catching, these single seat chairs are perfect for refreshing your lounge. Living room accent chairs are usually designed to look different from other seating (as opposed to matching sofas and armchairs), making them the ideal choice for those who want to have fun and experiment in their home. Besides, buying a single accent chair is much more budget-friendly than purchasing a whole new set.


Make a statement with new furnishings:

Furniture takes up a big part of the room, so new furnishings are great for making a dramatic change. While large pieces of furniture are often on the pricier side, smaller pieces such as coffee tables and an ottoman are much more purse-friendly. While they may be smaller, they’ll still give your space the transformation it needs.
