Feeling uninspired by your interior surroundings but hesitant to spend money on updating your home? Redecorating doesn’t necessarily need to be expensive! With just a little bit of creativity and a dose of imagination, you can easily manage to refresh your space on a budget.
Here are some of our favourite Royal LePage Performance Realty tips and tricks for the frugal design lover:
Sometimes, all it takes is a coat of new colour on your walls to infuse your space with a fresh vibe. Alternatively, giving a brightly-coloured wall a muted makeover with beige or white paint can help modernize your space and make it feel bigger. You’ll manage to totally transform a room after spending just $20-25 CAD on a can of paint.
Banish the mess! Overcrowding your home with more furniture or items than it needs can overwhelm the eye and make your rooms feel oversaturated. Donate what you don’t need and minimize any clutter for an immediate makeover. Even a small act like picking that pile of clothing up from the floor or finally getting a book shelf for all your novels will go a long way.
Replace your hardware
Outdated door knobs or cabinet handles can quickly make a home feel tired. Head to your local store for a fun hardware upgrade and marvel at what an immediate improvement it’ll make. This makes for a quick and easy weekend project that can completely transform a space.
Pay attention to window treatments
Your windows are your room’s frames. Leaving them bare can result in a space that gives off an underwhelming feel. A curtain rod and a set of simple curtains can immediately elevate the area and give it a polished look.
Have fun with DIY projects
Is that oak wooden chest in the corner of your living room starting to look a little ancient? Grab some sand paper and a can of furniture paint, then get to work! You’d be amazed at what a difference a new colour can make on antique pieces in particular.
Re-arrange your furniture
We believe in the power of feng shui – or, the energy that exists between people and their spaces. Sometimes all it takes is a quick rearrangement of your furniture to breathe new life into a room and lend it a much-needed dose of positivity. Play around with your pieces and see which setup works best for you.
