There comes a time when every homeowner wants to make some improvements to their property. Whether it’s following the current interior design trends or just revitalising a space after a few years of neglect.

The common misconception with home improvements is that they have to cost an arm and a leg. In truth, there are plenty of ways you can make some tweaks to your home without breaking the bank.

Not only will a few changes improve your way of living in the home, but they can also add a bit extra to your property value. Here are some tips for improving your home on a budget.

A fresh lick of paint

You’d be surprised just how impactful a fresh coat of paint in the rooms around your house can be. Despite giving your property a boost, it’s fast, inexpensive and you can do it yourself!

Neutral tones are generally recommended if you are planning on selling your home, but if you are giving your property a refresh for your own benefit, do it your own way. How about a statement feature wall or a two-tone scheme.

Mirror mirror on the wall

Mirrors have so many uses in the home. They can be used to add more light by reflecting natural light, to create the illusion of more space or used simply to add a charming addition to a minimal room.

Consider purchasing a feature mirror in your main social space. Not only will it give you a feature piece, but it will also make your room appear larger whilst filling the room with light!

Clear out – including the garden

Why save the spring clear out for spring? Getting rid of all your unwanted items makes better use of your space available to you, creating a more open and spacious layout.

Don’t forget your outdoor area, either. Houses with an appealing outdoor space are appealing to buyers, especially families with young children. We all enjoy an outdoor area through the summer barbeques but gardens can quickly become overgrown if they’re not maintained.

Let the light in

Light and airy spaces are always more inviting than those that are darker. Instead of going through the pricey process of installing new windows or bi-fold doors, try to first work with what you have.

Clear window sills, replace curtains with blinds and optimise artificial lighting, and you’ll be well on your way to an improved space.
