Interior design ideas to transform your home on a budget


Are you thinking about updating your home but feel put off because of a tight budget?

Don’t dismiss the possibility completely – you may be surprised to find out that there are various things you can do, all it takes is just a gentle push in the right direction. But it does require a dash of creativity.

Here are some ideas to help you transform your home on a tight budget.

Repaint the walls

There are plenty of affordable interior paints to use on your walls, which make refreshing your walls possible without breaking the bank. It’s also an effective way to breathe new life into your home, especially with the sheer number of patterns and colours that are available in shops these days. You may prefer to opt for lighter, softer colours to make your space look bigger and promote relaxation.

But we’d definitely recommend exploring different colour schemes and pairings if you don’t already have something in mind. Float different ideas around and see what works best.

Repurpose existing items

Don’t instantly write off what you already own. Items like cutlery, plates, instruments and candles can all be converted into tools for decoration. Older things you keep stashed away should be brought back out on display to add character and depth.

But be sure not to overdo it – ‘less is more’ is the approach to take here.

Incorporate wicker baskets

Wicker baskets serve multiple purposes. They add character and can be used to store various items. They don’t cost much and are easy to find.

Make use of mirrors

Mirrors are decorative features and can make a space look bigger and more stylish. They are also great because they don’t take up much space and can be placed on various surfaces. They’re ideal for rooms that don’t get much natural light.

And mostly importantly, they’re inexpensive additions. So if you’re looking for something elegant that can fit within a small budget, this is something to seriously consider.
