Have you ever found yourself sitting at home, wishing your house looked different? We’ve all watched the home makeover programs that show stunning houses that have everything we could ever dream of. While most of us realize we may never have all of these luxuries, that doesn’t mean that you can’t select styles, designs and furniture that will update your home without spending a small fortune.

1) Beds and bedding – The main part of any home is the bedroom, that vital space where you rest your head each night. Updating this room can easily be achieved by changing the main focal point of the room, the bed. Depending on the impact you are hoping to achieve you can choose from a new divan bed, bed frame or even a new headboard. The Divan Beds Centre has an affordable range to choose from to help change the style and feel of your bedroom. You can also give your room a fresh feel with a uniquely-styled bed cover and duvet set.

2) Front entrance – Your home’s front entrance is a space that is often forgotten, despite it being an area that you walk through every day. Imagine how you would feel coming home after a long day’s work to a warm and welcoming entrance? Also consider how you’d make a first impression to a visitor. This is, after all, the first thing they’ll see. These areas need to be practical but, importantly, they need to be tidy too. So, clear up all the coats that you aren’t using, put away the shoes that you aren’t wearing and throw away that tatty old mat. Welcome mats come in a huge array of shapes, sizes and designs so make your entrance say something about you. Why not try a personalised mat that is unique to you and your home?

3) Window dressing – We tend to overlook our windows but these can change the whole feel of a room. A good place to start is to clean your windows inside and out. If you are lucky enough to have a spectacular view then don’t take it for granted, open the window space up so you can make the most of it. Selecting blinds, curtains or bamboo shades will also change the feel of your room so consider carefully the style of the room. Adding flowers or beautiful ornaments to windowsills can also add to this space.

4) Change how you use a room – Throughout our lives the way we use our rooms changes with our family. Early on in your childrens lives you might have play rooms and a nursery and, once they have fully grown and moved out, you may allow yourself your own man cave or dressing room. Re-evaluate the way you use every space as and when you need to. A subtle change of purpose can update your home to suit your circumstances.

5) Clean and refresh – If you want to give your whole home a new lease of life without spending a great deal of money then elbow grease is the best option. Put your marigolds on and clean your home from top to bottom. Once it sparkles you’ll feel much happier.
