1.      Add Colour to Walls

Painting the walls in your home with a new colour is an inexpensive way to immediately breathe new life into a room.

2.      Consider a Feature Wall

Having a feature wall using a stylish wallpaper, a bold colour or a two-tone scheme will add a touch of glamour to a space and draw the eye.

3.      Update Your Flooring in Accordance with the Size of the Space

Large and/or wide rooms benefit from dark-toned flooring, whereas smaller rooms are better with lighter or neutral colours. It doesn’t have to expensive, as you can find cheap laminate flooring at https://www.woodfloorwarehouse.co.uk/laminate-flooring/cheap-laminate-flooring.html.

4.      Think About the Bigger Picture

Avoid selecting a new floor using an empty room as inspiration. Think about what furniture you will have, the colour of walls and other decorative pieces in the room.

5.       On the Move

Sometimes something as simple as moving a few pieces around can have a powerful impact on your environment. Consider using the practice of Feng Shui. You can find out more about it here: https://www.realsimple.com/home-organizing/decorating/what-feng-shui#feng-shui-bedroom-0.

6.      Declutter

Any pieces that are tired or that you don’t love should be given to a friend, sent to the charity or sold on eBay.

7.      Perfect Lighting

A well-chosen lighting scheme can greatly enhance your home for very little expense. Replace tired lampshades with stylish new ones, or purchase a new lamp to brighten areas of a space.

8.      Pillows and Cushions

If you aren’t ready to invest in a new sofa but feel that it needs a stylish touch, purchasing some affordable cushions will go a long way to zest up your living space.
9.      A Stylish Headboard

Your bedroom will receive a vibrant splash of sophistication if you use a unique fabric to upholster your headboard and matching shades of bed linen.

10.     Mirrors

Mirrors are an effective way to create the illusion of space and light in a living space and are inexpensive alternatives to pieces of art.
