If you’ve recently moved home and you’re looking for low-cost ways to add some of your personality to it, We Buy Any House have put together some low-budget, easy trends to help you customise your new house to make it perfect for you without it costing the world!
Fresh coats of paint
Spending some time repainting your walls will completely transform the look of the house on any budget. While most professionals will recommend that homeowners wait at least a year before decorating any brand-new walls, when the time does come, you can explore a variety of options.
Some homeowners choose to refresh their walls with the same colour to brighten them up and remove any marks or scuffs that come with general wear and tear, but if you’re looking for a more dramatic change, you can opt for something different.
Feature walls are a trendy option for those who aren’t wanting to commit to a completely different theme but are looking to add a little something to the room.
Painting is a good option for anyone looking to redecorate, as it’s an easy DIY job – you can pick the shades that you want to work with and get it done when it works for you.
If you’re struggling to choose a colour, Pinterest is a great way to get inspired – Dulux also have a really useful app called the Visualiser, which lets you take photos of your home and edit them with the colour that you’re looking to use.
This is especially helpful if you’re struggling to decide between a few colours as you can see the result that you’ll get from it, and more importantly, you can make sure that you’re going to be happy with it!
Let’s See how to Redecorate On A Budget
This new trend is a good way to add some glitz and glamour to your home without having to spend much money, and it’s incredibly easy to pull off.
It also looks beautiful, making it an even better option! Some homeowners choose to use LED lights on sticky strips to create an almost catwalk-like effect up their staircases – the extra bonus of approaching it this way is that LEDs are easily controlled with a remote or even an app, letting you change the colour and brightness to whatever you like.
For some, this is a bit over the top for a staircase, which is why individual spotlights on the walls running up the stairs are also a popular option. You can get these stick-on lights and just attach them to the steps or wall, and you can choose to do every step or alternate, whichever you prefer the effect of.
Updating your floors can sound like a pretty daunting one, as a lot of the time, replacing flooring is a pricy option. However, over the last year or so, vinyl flooring has become a huge hit and has meant that a lot of homeowners have been able to have beautiful new flooring that they’d never have imagined getting for the price they have.
For those who have an older home to sell and the flooring is not in the best condition, a new floor will make a huge difference when your viewers come to see the property and will help to increase their interest in buying your home.
Splashbacks can really make a kitchen surface stand out, and we’ve seen some stunning brick-style splashbacks entering homes across the country. White is a very popular choice, but brighter colours can also work, especially when they’re matched to the colour scheme going on in the rest of the kitchen. While this is only a little change to make, it can really transform a room!
It’s is only a small change, but it makes a big difference. It’s also really simple to do yourself, and will give you a real sense of satisfaction when you’ve done it!
Changing your colour scheme
A great way to redesign your house is to implement a big colour change using little accessories. This might sound like a subtle transformation, but if you approach it in the right way, you can make it a very effective one! Focus on any decorative items like cushions, throws, curtains or rugs, and choose a colour that you love.
If you have sofas that don’t fit into the colour scheme that you’re planning, you can easily get affordable covers in the desired colour – this will make them look like new, giving you another big transformation for an impressively low cost.
There are plenty of low-budget changes that you can make to personalise your new home and make it perfect for you – with lots of other exciting trends emerging every day, we can’t wait to see more!
