A home is so much more than a home. It is a warehouse of memories. The way we furnish and decorate our homes becomes the backdrop to those memories. We all crave a space that is a sanctuary away from reality. But getting there through expensive remodels isn’t an option for everyone, especially if you don’t know the difference between a screwdriver and a table saw. We curated a list of ways to update your home on a budget to keep your haven fresh and peaceful. Start with a fresh coat of paint and some new linens. Then replace your outdated lighting and add some greenery to the room.
Fresh coat of paint
People underestimate the value that a clean coat of paint can bring to a room. It is a cost-effective way to change the entire look of a space and give you a bump in motivation to do other things around your home. Choosing a paint color can be tricky, so we found this guide from our friends at “This Old House” to be very helpful.
Updating the linens around your home can completely revamp a space with a small budget. Our shower curtains will turn your bathroom into a bright, spa-like feel. Don’t forget to pair it with our Hammam Bath Towels. Adding a couple of throw blankets to your sofa can instantly bring a living room from boring and basic to cozy and casual. Our woven cotton throws will fit perfectly into your home with many neutral colors to choose from.
Replace outdated lighting
A poorly lit room can make an area feel dark and grim. Changing out those dusty light fixtures with a bright modern light bulb and fixture will make your room come alive. A simpler way is to add floor lamps in the areas of the room that don't get as much light.
Spruce up your room with greenery
Indoor plants have been shown to purify the room by absorbing toxins and producing oxygen. Plants can bring life to a room and boost your mood. Don’t have a green thumb? Check out this blog from The Spruce for plants that practically grow themselves. One of my favorites is a Snake Plant. I’ve had mine for 6 months and have only watered it once. It somehow still likes me and is thriving! If a hanging plant is more your style, a Pothos would be a good option for you.
As you can see, there are many quick and easy ways to update your home on a budget. You don't have to get involved in messy remodels or costly updates to create your simple sanctuary.
