Changing Rooms: How To Make Over A Room On A Budget

You know the drill. You decorate your home, or you focus all your efforts and expenses on the expensive jobs and find that you then want to change up some of the other rooms in your home, with little or no budget to do it. However, it doesn’t need to be this way. I know we can all be house proud, and while you may feel grateful for that big job to be completed, it is only natural that you want the rest of your home to look just as good. Which is why I thought I would share with you some of the quick and easy ways you can make over a room on a budget.




Be thrifty and craft


Sometimes it’s best to make some things yourself, and looking online at websites like can be a great way to find what you are looking for. It could be crocheting new pillow cases, perhaps adding your own artwork to the walls. But if you are struggling with ideas then hunt out different looks and feel inspired.


Shop online


Often hunting out bargains online can help reduce the cost of some of the biggest items. So if you want to change big pieces of furniture, or you are looking to change some appliances, then websites like could be the ideal way to find some bargains. You could also use the internet to find what you are looking for, and then try and find similar items in thrift shops or pre-owned.


Take furniture or knick knacks from other rooms


Sometimes simply changing the rooms around can make it feel different and offer a new dynamic to a room. For example, a sofa in one place could look different in a new room entirely. The same can be said for accessories, pictures, and ornaments you have. Changing things around could help you to change the room and how it feels and looks.


Create a feature wall


You don’t have to completely redecorate a room to make it look brand new. A feature wall can be a great way to add a new look to a room. You could go with a striking color to add a new dynamic, or even consider things like artwork, paintings or photographs to add a difference. Get creative and see the difference it could make to any room in your home.


Add more light


Light can really change the perspective of a room, so if you can encourage as much natural light into a space and see the difference, it could make. Get rid of blinds or net curtains, open up the curtains a little more and let the natural light in. If you can’t do that, then use artificial light as best you can. Daylight inspired bulbs or LED’s can help to create the look of natural light.


Change one thing


Finally, if you can invest some money, just change one thing to makeover the room. You could choose the flooring, perhaps even decorate the room with wallpaper. Whatever you decide, sometimes just changing one thing can create the look you are going for.
