Refurbishing your property can be one of the most exciting times in your life, but, in most cases, it comes with a hefty price tag. Once you add together the cost of materials, tools, furniture, and labour, you’re left with just enough to buy a bottle of Tesco Finest Prosecco to celebrate your new and improved home.
Unless… Here are 6 savvy ways to redecorate your house – without breaking the bank.
Have a big ‘decluttering’ session
Don’t underestimate the power of a decluttering session. If you don’t currently have the financial means to purchase new furniture and equipment, start by having a good clear out instead. Not only is it free, but it’s also a really simple yet effective way to redecorate your house without making any big, permanent decisions.
Enlist the help of professionals
Even if you are a dab hand at DIY projects, we strongly recommend you always (always!) enlist the help of professionals when it comes to redecorating and refurbishing. The reality is, if you make a mistake, it could cost double the price of the task just to correct that mistake.

Don’t overlook charity shops and online market places
Once upon a time, negative connotations were (wrongly!) attached to purchasing items in a charity shop. Now, it’s seen as a clever, money-saving activity that serves to benefit the whole community. Instead of forking out ££££ on a new sofa, bed, coffee table, and wardrobes, why not see what you can get for a fraction of the initial price? It might be second-hand, but most of the furniture you’ll find will look and function like brand-new.
Add a photo gallery
When we think of ‘redecorating’, we think of chaos; paint tins strewn across the floor, plastic sheeting wrapped across new furniture… our bank accounts crying at the impact of it all! Well, if you’re looking for something much simpler and cost-effective, just add a photo gallery. Your home will feel completely transformed without all the fuss and the finance.
Take it room by room
It can be easy to get swept up in the excitement of redecorating your house. First, you’re considering upgrading your sofa, and then the next thing you know, you’ve got extravagant transformation plans for the kitchen, living room, bathroom, all the bedrooms – even the downstairs cupboard! To save vital funds during this process, calm down and take it room by room.
