Rethink What You Already Have
Take a look at the furniture you already have and the layout. Is there anything that can be moved around to increase the amount of space you have in your room? If not then is there any furniture that looks outdated that you could update or swap for something else?
Being creative is one of the best ways to reduce costs of redecorating, if you have a lot of big furniture then try to reduce the amount of ornament and decorations you have to make the room look less busy and cluttered. Check out this article on how you can make more space in a small room.
If your coffee table has a lot of magazines, coasters, books or ornaments, then try to reduce the amount and replace them with something like fresh flowers.

Paint is affordable and easy to do, so you don’t have to pay the expense of paying somebody else to do the job. Choose the paint scheme suited to your home, not sure how? Take a look at this article on how to pick the perfect colour palette for your home.
You can be daring and paint your entire room one colour, or why not use a vibrant colour to create a feature wall as a focal point in your living room or bedroom?
Skip Buying From Big Brand Names
Big brands such as Ikea, Dunelm and Homebase offer fantastic furniture options and home decor items. However, they can be extremely costly as well as the fact that thousands of people buy them every day.
In order to cut decorating costs and make your home’s decor unique, we recommend visiting a few markets or boot sales to find antique or unique furniture items passed down from other homeowners. This gives your home an authentic look, and you can grab some bargains of authentic furniture that has been priced cheaper than it should as owners want to get rid of it – so keep your eyes peeled!

Replace Your Door Handles
If you’re bored of your standard white front door or wooden doors separating the rooms in your house, then spruce them up a bit! A simple way of doing so is by replacing the door handles. Although it may not seem like much, a door handle can make your doors look nicer and more up to date.
Or as an alternative, if your budget will allow you to do so, then why not replace your front door or add new doors into your property? Bi-folding doors and french doors can add extra lighting into somewhere like your kitchen or conservatory – they are affordable and can even increase the value of your home. Or sharpen up the exterior of your property by getting a new front door that matches the overall design of your property. If you don’t already have back doors why not add them into your home extensions Buckingham to let extra light into your living space.
