Have you ever been scrolling through Tik-Tok or Facebook and watch people renovate their home on a small budget with ideas that you would just have never thought of? Well with spring just around the corner and those people that didn’t do a full renovation during lockdown, we have some of these easy tips for you with some links of products, which would look fabulous.
For the living room:
Do you like the old-fashioned floor board look? With the current trend following minimalism with wood, greenery and whites, this flows well. If your carpets are looking tattered but you don’t have the money to buy new ones. What about a pine look, which would need a wood lye then an additional sanding with a wood soap. However just be aware you will need to keep on top of this, with frequently applying the solution. Alternatively, you could paint the floor boards white, this also works well in the bedroom as well as the bathroom if you have a roll top bath. This can brighten a room and have a clean refreshed look.
For the Kitchen:
Do you have tired looking kitchen cabinets but not sure how to make your kitchen look completely new without splashing the cash. Again, with the lick of paint and new handles, you could have a fresh new kitchen. This paired with mosaic tile stickers can go from a tired kitchen to a bold one, great for those on a budget. You could also use tile stickers as a splash back look across the kitchen. You could also change the taps to statement taps, creating a contrast against the splash back.

For the Garden:
An easy way to refresh your garden, is to create a border around the grass area where the fence panels are and plant a selection of flowers. By doing this from seeds, this is very cost-effective. If you want a little project that can be of minimal costs, you can create pallet furniture and create the cushions with foam and material of your choice. This mixed with an outdoor rug, (https://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/outdoor-rug-black-3540723) which you can grab for around £10 work wonderfully together. Another fantastic bargain from B&M is their Vancouver String Chair for £25 (https://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/string-chair-vancouver-370861), to add a modern touch into the garden. For planters, you can create large wooden pine modern planters and to add a touch of colour, you could paint them white, to accentuate the colours from the flowers.
