Updating Your Home on a Budget

Need to do some modernising and updates on your home but lacking the necessary funds in which to do so? Then you’ve come to the right place. We don’t believe that you need to have a bottomless pit of money in order to enjoy your home to its full potential, which is why we’ve come up with these affordable makeover ideas to help you if you are few on the pennies. There are many options for upgrades that you can do yourself, such as assemble yourself kitchen cabinets.

Paint, Paint & More Paint!

Are you wanting to update your kitchen, but the money and disruption is just too much right now? Don’t worry, there’s a temporary way you can give your kitchen cabinets a new lease of life. This can be done by simply painting them, making them not only look a lot fresher but change the whole feel of the room if you’re tired of its old theme! This works with painting walls and ceilings, but of course we’re sure you already know that!

While a fresh coat of paint can go a long way to making a space feel new, it does still have some limitations. There are various ways to use budget friendly tactics to get a textured look and feel. For example, instead of building a wooden feature wall, you could opt for a cheaper Stikwood option, it looks exactly the same but is half the hassle to build and it’s light on your wallet. 

Have a look…

Have A Look At What You’ve Already Got and Re think

Sometimes moving furniture from another room can really make your room feel brand new. There might be something from another room that beautifully fits in the room you’re looking at updating. Reshuffling furniture is another way to mix things up and keep it interesting without spending a penny.

Refinish or Get your Floors Deep cleaned

Although getting your floors re done or cleaned doesn’t quite match up to getting a whole new floor, it’s certainly a lot cheaper. Before you start shopping for a new floor, looking into alternative options. If you’re lucky enough to have real wood, then you’ll know that you can sand it down and refinish it which can make it look brand new! If you have carpet then you could get it deep cleaned, often it’ll come up looking brand new!

Declutter & Organise

A modern interior is all about clean spaces. It’s all very well spending a lot of money on a swanky new kitchen, but the most important thing to do it declutter! Get rid of anything that you’ve used in months, life’s far too short for unnecessary clutter. If you clear out your cupboards then you’ll have space for stuff you actually use, organization is the best! Go all in on that minimalist interior by getting a self storage in Cricklewood.


Introducing a mirror to your room is a fantastic way to make smaller spaces appear bigger and allows your interior to look that bit more expensive. It also saves you having to think of artwork, not to mention they serve a practical purpose as well as aesthetic!

Focus on Furnishings

If you’re not in the mood to be splashing out on new sofas, then purchasing throws to go over your old ones can help brighten things up. Very inexpensive and you can experiment with different patterns and fabrics. Some fresh Sydney plants can also do wonders to a living room space, adding a splash of bright colours.

Of course, nothing comes close to having a good revamp, but try some of these in the meantime as a temporary measure!
