Interiors // Transforming your house on a budget

transforming-your-house-on-a-budgetTaking the time to add flowers, redecorate parts of the house or a room and making small changes can really make a big difference.

You can alter a rooms ambience entirely by changing the colour of the lamps, or adding small elements in the right place. The small changes can keep the house feeling fresh and comfortably warm (which is definitely needed with winter approaching).

Of course, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to transform the house. The few tips we are about to discuss in this article will help you get started in no time.

Flowers and Colours

The easiest way to freshen up a room is by adding a bouquet of flowers. You can change so much of the ambience with a simple bouquet; placed in a vase and put in the right corner or area in the room. Fresh flowers work really well for the job because their smell makes the room feel fragrant and homely.

If you happen to have a garden or access to fresh flowers, you can take on the adding-flowers-to-the-room task as a DIY project. It will be something you can do every week and you’ll have a lot of fun doing it.

For a simpler route, you could order bouquets of fresh flowers online. Don’t worry about spending a lot of money on flowers because special offers like this Serenata Flowers discount code will make the bouquets of your choice very affordable.

Let More Light In

Another easy way to change the ambience of a room completely is by letting more natural light in during the day.

If live in a house with large windows, then simply keep the blinds, curtains or shutters open for longer. You can also use window treatments to control the amount of light that enters a room, so it’s worth looking into.

For rooms that don’t have large windows, there are several DIY projects that will help produce the same effects. A DIY fake windows set made from Scrap LCD Screens, for example, creates a very realistic effect without costing a lot of money. The use of big mirrors in a room also helps add extra light and a feeling of space.

Change the Colours

It is not uncommon for a room to have accumulated lots of colours over the years. We may start with one or two dominant colours when we first decorate, but then the sofa of our dreams comes along but it’s in the wrong colour… Then more items get added to the room and suddenly you have a mismatch of colours.

You can brighten up the mood of a room and transform it completely by simplifying your colour scheme. Start with another two dominant colours and work your way towards creating a stylish room everyone will enjoy. Throws and cushions are inexpensive and can change the feel of a room immediately.
