Featured Partner Post

Research shows that more and more homeowners are opting to renovate or redecorate rather than relocate. If your decor is dated, or you fancy undertaking a mini makeover, you may be worried about splashing too much cash. Home improvements can be costly, but there are plenty of ways to transform home interiors on a budget. Here are some affordable solutions to inject serious style.

Here are 3 simple ways to save money on your next home decoration or renovation project.

Master the Art of Accessorising

Accessorising is one of the most effective ways to freshen up your home without breaking the bank. If you master the art of accessorising, you can experiment with different trends and ensure your home looks chic all year round. Use accessories to enhance functionality and aesthetic appeal.

From cushions, throws and blankets to decorative plant pots and storage jars, you can use details and accents to add splashes of colour, create more storage and inject personality and personal touches.

Browse interior design magazines and online stores to get ideas and take inspiration from TV shows or places you’ve visited, such as hotels, resorts, restaurants and trendy bars. If you spot items you love but they have a designer price tag, use search engines to find similar products at lower prices. There are some incredible dupes around. 

Hone your DIY skills

Building furniture and upcycling are fabulous ways to save money on updating your home decor. From simple projects like painting old coffee tables and chairs to more complex jobs like ordering MDF cut to size and building a new wardrobe for your bedroom or dressing room, there are multiple ways you can use your skills.

Watch video tutorials, search for online guides and check out social media accounts dedicated to upcycling and DIY. Scour your home for old-fashioned or tired items you can update and upgrade, or take a tour of local car boot sales, salvage yards and antique stores. 

Shop Around

The Internet has made comparing prices and sourcing affordable products easier than ever. Gone are the days of traipsing around shops and noting down product codes and prices. Today, you can search for items for your home at the touch of a button and compare prices from different brands and retailers.

Use search engines to find specific products and compare offers from vendors to find the best deals. You can also explore items based on a more general search term if you don’t have a specific product in mind. Shopping around can save you a fortune by enabling you to access offers online and find products you love at lower prices.

Perhaps you’ve seen a statement-making yellow armchair on a TV show or in a glossy magazine, for example. Using the Internet, you can find the same product and alternatives suited to your budget in a matter of seconds. 

It’s understandable to assume that you have to spend a lot to transform your home, but this isn’t always the case. There are budget-friendly ways to enhance aesthetics and elevate interior design. Use accessories to carry new themes and trends, add colour and personality and move from one season to the next.

Hone your DIY skills or try upcycling and shop around for the best prices on furniture, storage solutions, accessories and decorative features.
