It can be scary to see how the costs of bathroom refits, reflooring or simply a spot of redecorating stack up, but refurbishing a home on a budget is possible. With a little bit of planning, there are plenty of ways you can breathe new life into your home without breaking the bank.


And you'd be surprised at how much of it you can do yourself, without calling in the experts. This can save you lots of money and gives you the freedom to completely customize your new look. To give you a little dash of inspiration, here are seven top tips on how to make your house a home.



1. Buy some budget art

Probably the cheapest and easiest option on this list, adding some artwork to your walls can introduce a sense of style and give your home a new look.


Whether buying second-hand, from big box stores, or from your neighbor's niece, a splash of color may be all you need to refresh your house while you budget for bigger things.



2. Bring some life into your home

Plants uplift the atmosphere, add color and some plants even purify the air. No matter how green your fingers, you are sure to find a house plant that you can handle.


Succulents anyone? You can also put some green life outside, especially if a fresh touch of paint on your exteriors remains out of budget for now.



3. Change your lighting

Adding dimmer switches, nicer lampshades, LED light strips or some romantic candles can change the ambience of a room instantly.


When the halls are brightly lit every detail stands out, but with atmospheric lighting you can control the mood within your own home. Modern or retro, light installations are an easy way to refresh your home on a budget.



4. Invest in a dishwasher

For those who do the dishes by hand, it can be shocking the amount of money a dishwasher can save you.


Not only that, but giving this daily task to a machine can reward you with more time to do other things around the house, resulting in a tidier home and a more relaxed family. This may have a higher initial cost, but the savings will flood in.





5. Paint the walls

Cream, olive, pink or blue, changing the color of your walls brings instant change and a whole new look.


It can be cheap too, especially if you put aside some time to do it yourself. Or, bring in family and friends for a painting party and make a day of it. Everyone loves getting a bit creative with some budget DIY, and this easy change will make it a party to remember.



6. Invest in rugs - lots of them!

Things get cozy real quick when you bring in some soft fabrics, and whether buying second-hand, antique or new, rugs are a quick way to change the mood.


From fluffy shower mats and vibrant bedroom rugs to non-slip stair runners, get your feet off the cold floor and into comfort when you upgrade your floors. This trick is perfect for those waiting for the money to redo their flooring, giving you a chance to save and plan more.





7. Buy Scratch & Dent Appliances

Whether you've just bought a new home or you're simply looking for a change, refurbishing a house doesn't have to mean starting from scratch.


When refurbishing a house on a budget, don't be put off by high ticket prices. There are plenty of ways to upgrade your interiors without breaking the bank, and Hammond Wholesale is there to help you get more for your money, every time.
