Your home is the first thing you see when you get home, so it goes without saying that the space should be comforting, cosy and beautiful in your eyes.

If that isn’t the case for you because you’ve lived in your abode for a long time now and your items are worn, or you’re tired of what you’re seeing and you simply want a fresh start, then it’s time to give your home a makeover.

That said, you don’t have to splash out on renovations or get expensive furniture that will cost you a pretty penny. If you’re on a budget, there are easy ways to refresh your home.

For instance, you can toss out clutter you don’t need or store them in pretty baskets or boxes. Or you can rearrange the things in your house, such as sorting your accessories (throws, pillows, frames, bookends) by colour, and then rearranging them in the room in a more uniform or colourful manner. You can also try updating your old furniture, such as a dresser or chairs, by giving them a fresh and modern coat of paint — such as matte pink or tiffany blue.

Another way is to get accessories. These easily replaceable pieces are a quick-fix way to switch up your interior style, breathing new life into your home.
