We have all taken a walk through the house and sighed when things don’t look quite right. We do what we can to keep our homes tidy and looking good, of course, but there is nothing so annoying as being able to see that you want to change things but not quite putting your finger on what that is! You may cast a critical eye over the house, but unless you’re selling up and need to put the place to market, you may not think about it properly. However, this is your moment to really give your house the makeover it needs.
But – oops – you’ve forgotten that the income has been a little tighter lately. All those grand plans and the open Guide to Buying Garage Doors book to be cast aside because you just don’t have the funds to get through all of the new things that you want to do for your home.

The best bit is that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it as most hardware stores will charge door handles and drawer openers as much less than anything else. Trendy brass drawer pulls can also match your faucets in the kitchen, which will make the look you are going for really stand out.

It doesn’t have to be especially expensive, but you can use playful patterns and multiple colors to really bring out the personality of the room and your family. The best thing about it is that the room will change instantly;y and you don’t have to do much more than stick a load of dots up on the walls!
Change up the treatments around your windows for an instant change. When was the last time you changed out the curtains and blinds in the house? Go room to room and make a note of what you have and what color everything is, and then make a list of changes to the colors and styles that you really want. It’s a super simple switch that will have a transformation like no other. It’s time to get rid of the net curtains and embrace some vertical blinds for a change. Add some heavier curtains if you want, but remember that your rooms need some light!
Layer up the rooms with rugs and textiles. Wall rugs may not be your thing, but textiles can add rich layers to the space in which you hope to relax every evening, and rugs are perfect for it. Rugs on the floors of the rooms can be exactly what you need to add some texture and a little depth to space. Rugs also feel absolutely delicious underfoot if you have the right thickness to them! There is a huge range of colors and patterns on offer, too, which will mean that each room continues to look fantastic no matter what you choose!
No matter what you pick for your home, all of these suggestions can remain on a budget for you. Make your choices based on what you can afford and you’ll see those transformations happen.
