The transformation you can achieve just by making a few cheap alterations to a dated room can be amazing. You do not need to completely renovate a room to have a big impact on its style. For inspiration, these budget makeover ideas will allow you to refresh your room without it costing you a fortune.
Alter your furniture layout
This idea will cost you nothing to try and if you don’t like what you have created then you can easily move the furniture back. Though we think you will be impressed with the space you can create just from rearranging your room.
Simple ideas, such as moving the position of sofas or chairs will help you to make the most of every inch of the space available. Maybe you want to try moving furniture between rooms to create a new feel, or even sell any excess furniture that no longer has a place.
Refresh fixtures and fittings
You will need to use a little bit of DIY to carry out this idea, but by replacing your worn out fixtures and fittings you will be surprised what a clean and refreshed feel this can achieve for only a small amount of cash.
Have a look at replacing old cupboard handles and door handles with new modern styles, and you will be impressed with the finished result. Even dirty radiator piping can be renewed with a shiny metal cover and Trade Radiators have a great selection of modern designs. Small details can make a huge difference to your room and they only take seconds to achieve.
Add a splash of paint
This can be as small or as big a job as you decide. It can range from a full room refresh to a splash of paint on a wall. Feature walls are popular at the moment, and they are a great way to display your artistic talent. Be brave and pick a bold colour for your masterpiece and make your room stand out.
Tired rooms can look like new with a quick coat of paint, so just a general repaint can work wonders. Maybe add some artwork or geometric shapes to make the room come alive. This can all be achieved for the cost of a tin of paint.
Renovate old furniture
If you are creative, then have a go at giving an old piece of furniture a new lease of life. You might want to try painting a piece of wooden furniture to give it a new character or you could refresh a chair with a new fabric cover. This is the ideal way to recycle unwanted furniture and save money.
If you need a new piece of furniture for your room makeover, instead of buying new, why not try and buy your furniture second hand and restyle it? This is a great way to ensure that all of your furniture matches your personality and room decor.
The finished result
When giving a room a makeover on a budget you need to be brave with your ideas, as a small statement can transform a room. You will be surprised at the amazing results you can create all while sticking to your budget.
