4 Cheap and Easy Home Improvements on a Budget

2 June 2023

During the cost of living crisis, you might find that your budget for home improvements is rapidly shrinking due to the ever increasing inflation rate. However, it’s possible to complete your home renovations on a small budget without committing to high expenditure.

If you want to start your home improvements on a budget, check out these four cheap and easy ideas to get you started.

Top Cheap and Easy Home Improvements

1.     Change Your Colour Scheme

If you’re wanting to give your home a cheap facelift, you might want to consider changing up your colour scheme. A lighter colour scheme will help to bring more light into your home, but you could also mix things up with a bright statement wall, or some quirky wallpaper.

Not only will this bring a fresh new look to your home, but a new lick of paint can completely change the face of a room.

2.     Install Mirrors and glass in Your Home

Installing mirrors is an excellent way to bring some character to your home, and can also add some essential depth to a smaller room or glass balustrades in you hall.

You can opt for a small mirror to add a beautiful finish to a wall, or even create an entire mirror wall for a bedroom or bathroom. If you need a bespoke mirror for your home, companies like Halifax Glass are specialists in designing mirrors to fit every specification and design.

3.     Change Your Lighting

Lighting is integral to your home, and changing the intensity of it, or how the light is distributed across the room can affect how your room appears.

For example, placing multiple spotlights across a ceiling can make a room seem brighter than using a single overhead light. You may also want to experiment with different bulb intensities.

LED Edison bulbs with imitation filaments can often provide a warm glow for living rooms, suitable for watching TV in the evenings, or bedrooms for a relaxing soft glow.

You can find a selection of bulbs from retailers like Lightbulbs Direct for a wide range of light bulbs to suit your every need.

4.     Give Your Kitchen a Makeover Without Replacing It

If your kitchen is looking a bit outdated, instead of replacing it, you can wrap your cupboards in high quality vinyl to change their appearance. You can choose from wood, stone or quartz effect to give your kitchen a budget-friendly makeover.

Companies like Architextural stock a wide range of vinyl in various colours to complement every kitchen imaginable. Simply choose your design, and install in your kitchen for a brand new look!
