When there’s a budget to stick to some may argue that home improvements will have to wait. While that’s often true, there are some things you could do today that will instantly elevate the way your home looks, without breaking the bank.

Let’s check those out now:

1. Declutter and clean

Anyone who has ever had to do their own housework will agree that things just look and feel so much better when they’re clean and tidy, so why not take it a step further? Take some time to declutter and clean from top to bottom.

You’ll soon notice that areas that were previously cluttered suddenly help give your room a new lease of life. Plus, there’s nothing quite like a good declutter every now and then to reset things around your home.

2. Think about the senses

One thing that often goes overlooked when it comes to home improvement is how your home smells, but think about it; when you first enter your home you use three main senses:

  • Sight
  • Smell
  • Hearing

Are all of these senses satisfied when entering your home? There’s a good chance you can’t do much about the sounds you can hear, but you certainly can when it comes to smells. Whether you choose to plug in an air freshener or want to try out a simmer pot is completely up to you.

Either way, a homey smell will make a world of difference to how your home feels to you and your guests, as will gentle sounds such as calming music.

3. Let in more light

Having enough light in each room can also change the way the room comes across. While blinds are great for privacy, they can also block out valuable light from your home. Consider switching to Roman Blinds made in the UK so that you can easily pull them back from your window.

Even drawing back your current curtains and adjusting your shutter blinds will let in more light. Your rooms will instantly look bigger and brighter – and it doesn’t mean you can’t close your blinds as it gets darker for the privacy you want.

4. Rearrange your furniture

Another option to try would be to rearrange your furniture. People naturally push their furniture against the wall in an attempt to make the room look bigger in the middle. However, this blocks out valuable light from moving around the room, and can actually make it look cramped and dark. Consider arranging your furniture slightly away from your wall to create the illusion of more space.

5. Add personal touches

Finally, while show homes do look great, you’ve still got to live in yours. So, if you’re looking to make your home feel more personal and welcoming, then add those personal touches! Add framed pictures and display that beautiful pot your child made you at school. Personal belongings can be the difference between having a house and a home.
