You only have to unleash your imagination and creativity to give your home a beautiful low budget makeover.

Play with the décor by rearranging the furniture

We can say that it is the simplest hack to refurbish your home décor without spending a penny. How your space looks and feels depend a lot on the furniture and its arrangements. You can do it easily, especially in your living room, without changing anything except repositioning the furniture. So if your couches are positioned for comfortable viewing of television, rearrange them to make it interactive seating. On the contrary, if the sofas are arranged in a cosy manner, spread it out, or maybe, move out the small couch and bring in the beautiful armchairs from the study or the daybed from the bedroom and refresh your living room and the study and bedroom at no extra cost.

Old room drenched in new lighting

Revamp the old room with fresh lighting ideas and refresh it at a cost you can afford. Check out for deals on lamps and get new ones for your living room, dining room or bedroom, the room you wish to give a makeover. Or, if you want to budget it more, you can even decorate the rooms with colourful scented candles that will decorate the space during days and burn them to light up your evenings.

Revamp the wall décor

Transform the décor of the home by redecorating the walls of the rooms. Replace the old paintings or pictures with new ones, or rearrange the existing ones using your creativity and revamp the walls on a budget. You can create a family or memory wall with the paintings done by the family members, or new family pictures clicked recently or framing the old pictures from the memory books. This low budget wall decor will be precious for your home.

Striking makeover of the Kitchen

Changing the kitchen cabinetry or tiles to give it a fresh makeover could be an expensive affair. So rather than changing it or even thinking of it, be smart and swap the crockeries and glass on display with jars full of cookies, snacks, munchies, or even spice jars that will refresh and decorate the showcase at no extra cost.

Setting up the table

It is easy to ignore the dining space since you cannot change the dining table to give the room a beautiful makeover. However, you can easily give it a stylish makeover on a budget by dressing up the table with new tablecloths, mats, buying a new set of napkin holder, salt and pepper shaker. Then elevate its elegance by decorating it with a flower vase with fresh flowers and candles, making it perfect for romantic dinners.

Showcase the heirloom or antique pieces

Take out the heirloom piece you inherited or visit a thrift shop to get something unique or an antique piece at a reasonable price, polish it, clean it or maybe give it your personal touch and use it to decorate your home. Even the sparkles on a brass statue or Grandfather’s gramophone can make space breathe in the freshness on a budget.

Decorative makeover of the bathroom

The bathroom is the last place that comes to mind when planning a home makeover. However, you can easily refurbish and rejuvenate the bathroom of your house without spending much. Since it is a small space, you can start by cleaning it, painting the glass windows, changing the old mirror with a new one, replacing the shower curtains, soap dispensers, and decorating the room with candles. It will make a considerable difference to elevate the elegance of the bathroom.
