Whether you’re painting that accent wall to create more of a focal point in a space, or you’re painting all of the walls a brand new colour, you’ll be glad that you got the paintbrush out when your home looks fresh and bright.
Change the flooring
Sometimes, you’re just tired of seeing that same old flooring, and your kitchen tiles may have seen better days. This can be the same for some of your carpets (which can fall victim to messy kids) but you can change these things up on a budget. Laminate floors are en vogue and won’t cost you the earth, and they also have a look that just doesn’t age. When it comes to things like this, think about what will look good for years to come.
Use your artsy streak
Needless to say, renovations on a budget usually work because people try out new ideas, and try to use their creativity to make a space look great again.

After all, if you’re looking for a new kitchen, you’ll soon see how much these things will really put you out. However, you can get second-hand kitchens - and other gems - through sites like eBay, and people even give these things away for free on pages like Freecycle!
