5 Ways To Update Your Home On A Budget

Want to give your Melbourne home a stylish makeover but don’t have the cash for a full renovation? You don’t have to spend a fortune to transform your home into a more modern, liveable space. Five small changes can have a big impact on your home.


  • Invest In New Furniture

New designer furniture can breathe life into a tired home. Even if you can’t afford to re-furnish every room, investing in a few key pieces can make a surprising difference. As the centrepiece of the living room, a new coffee table can transform this space. A new bookcase or shelf filled with treasured books, photo frames and other keepsakes will also provide a talking point. For the bedroom, look for a new bed with a beautiful and timeless solid timber or fabric frame. We also love a charming armchair styled with a colourful cushion for a cosy bedroom corner, landing or hallway.

  • Upgrade Home Décor

Choosing new key home décor pieces that reflect your tastes can also work wonders in your home. For the bedroom, this can be as simple as a stylish new doona cover, cosy throw and colourful cushions. In living spaces, textural rugs can add warmth and interest to uninspiring floors, and beautiful art can revitalise drab walls. Don’t forget indoor planters and vases to brighten up tables and shelving.

  • Replace Window Coverings

Window coverings can make or break your home, so another game-changer is updating old-fashioned or stained blinds or curtains with a more contemporary style. If you want your windows to be a statement in your home, play with bold colours and textures and rich fabrics. If you prefer your window treatments to blend in and serve their purpose, opt for neutral tones and simple silhouettes such as white roller blinds or sheer linen curtains.

  • Paint

Don’t underestimate the impact a fresh coat of paint can have on your home. A DIY paint job is a simple and cost-effective way to brighten up walls and cover ugly stains or dated colour schemes. For a modern and timeless look, stick to neutral white, off-white or dove grey.
