Budget-friendly ways to upgrade your home in 2024

Budget-friendly ways to upgrade your home in 2024

Property GPEA 14th February 2024

A full home refresh doesn’t always mean spending the whole nine yards. With a few thoughtful touches, you can transform your living space and elevate your everyday life. If you’re working with budget constraints, here are a few wallet-friendly ways to breathe new life into your home this year. 

Textile transformation 

Updating your soft furnishings is a cheap and easy way to give your home a facelift. Consider swapping out old curtains, throw pillows, and rugs for something fresher and bolder, as this will inject some vitality into your living spaces.

DIY décor 

There’s an inner artist inside everyone, no matter your skill set. In today’s world of technology, you can find tutorials and inspo for almost any facet of interior design, so get personal with some DIY crafts and test your hand at repurposing old furniture. From hand-painted accent walls to DIY splashbacks, the possibilities for homemade magic are endless. 

Find second-hand treasures 

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, so try not to buy anything brand new if you don’t have to. Explore vintage or charity shops, or utilise online apps to discover some unique, budget-friendly gems. A quirky lampshade or a vintage coffee table can add a touch of character to your home, but if you prefer modern and trendy items, check online for second-hand listings so that you don’t have to splash out on the full retail price.

Greenery galore

Nature costs nothing, but the payoff of decorating with low-maintenance houseplants is unmatched. Add a touch of nature to your home in every empty corner for a pop of colour and clarity. Houseplants don’t just improve air quality; they also serve as living décor with mood-boosting properties that create a soothing atmosphere.

Elegant lighting on a budget 

The overall ambience of your home can be controlled with a few simple lighting adjustments. Check if any of your fixtures are outdated and swap for eco-friendly alternatives that align better with your style. Energy-efficient LED bulbs will save you money on utility bills while also enabling you to diversify your lighting scheme with plenty of options to choose from.  

Tech-savvy savings 

Smart home features have become much more accessible and affordable over the past few years, and now they are an easy way to enhance your home’s convenience and energy efficiency. Smart thermostats, plugs, and bulbs can be easily integrated, helping you save on utility bills and give your home a subtle touch of modernity.

Create a feature wall 

Make a statement without having to splash out on a full paint job. You can opt for removable wallpaper or decals to create interesting patterns and focal points. The best part is the lack of permanence, as you can update and experiment with different styles over time, allowing a dynamic feel in your living space.
