In the midst of a cost of living crisis, home decoration may be the last thing you want to spend money on. Giving your home a fresh new look courtesy of a lick of paint however doesn’t have to cost the Earth.

With the following tips, you can decorate without blowing the budget and create a space you’ll be proud to call home.

Just add colour

A sure-fire way to update your space is by adding a pop of colour to the room. Whether creating a feature wall or embracing a two-tone scheme, painting with a colour palette you love is all you need to create a bold new look that’s oh-so-you!

Highlight the features

Instead of using paint to makeover an entire room or a single, accent wall, why not highlight exactly what’s great about your space?

Paint can be applied creatively to frame doors, skirting boards, wall art and other features of a room. The result is a quirky, uniquely decorated interior that showcases your personality and demonstrates your love of colour.

Frame your wallpaper

Yes, really! By using swatches of wallpaper to create your own gallery space, you can skip the mess and expense of full application to ensure an equally elegant display. Display your chosen samples or offcuts in simple frames to add something interesting to your walls.

Don’t buy new

Upgrading the furniture and home accessories that add those finishing flourishes can cost an arm and a leg. But, why buy new when you can give the furniture you already own a budget-friendly makeover? Paint can be used to jazz up tired pieces that have either seen better days or don’t complement your new scheme.

Invest in lighting

The power of lighting shouldn’t be underestimated. A fact that makes dedicating some of your home decorating budget to upgrading your light fixtures a must. You don’t have to choose expensive lighting options to create a look you adore. Switch out the shade of a well-used table lamp or change its position to illuminate your space in a completely different way.
