Giving your home an affordable makeover

2019 is here and some like to use the New Year as an opportunity to have a fresh start. If you fancy a change or are perhaps preparing your house to sell, check out our tips for giving your home a makeover (without breaking the bank).

 

 

Turn up the lights!

A great way to transform the mood of any room is with lighting. Whatever your style, there’s something for everyone; have you considered accessorising candle holders? It’s not only a crafty way to spend an afternoon but can add a touch of sparkle on a wintery evening. Freestanding lights are great for utilising small spaces and paired with dimmer bulbs can really create a cosy feel.

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Mirrors are a magical way to create the illusion of space and can also act as fantastic statement pieces. If it would complement your room, why not consider an illuminated mirror for a sense of relaxation with an added touch of glam?

Picture this

Modern artwork can add sophistication to any space and it doesn’t have to be expensive; your local charity shop could be housing your dream painting, or you could even create your own! Match the colours in your picture to the furniture in the room, to bring everything together stylishly.
