13 Sep 5 Top Low Budget Decorating Tips
Fed up with the look and feel of your home but don’t have the money to give it a complete ‘make-over’? Check out these low budget decorating tips for great ideas on transforming your home without breaking the bank.
5 Top Low Budget Decorating Tips
Tip #1 – Have a Rethink. Sometimes all it takes to give a room a completely new look is to simply move things around a little. A fresh approach like this often not only creates a whole new look but also encourages you to ‘lose’ a few old pieces that only serve to clutter your space up.
Think about it: do you really need to keep everything you see in that room? Often, less is more, so sell anything you don’t need on eBay or drop it off at your local charity shop.
Tip #2 – Update your Radiators! Painting radiators can be a real pain – and replacing old, unsightly ones can get unbelievably expensive.
There is, however, a better solution: Quick and easy to assemble & install, available in a multitude of delightful colours and suitable for radiators of any style (flat or column) and size, Sentimo made-to-measure radiator covers are a highly cost-effective way to transform any radiator into a stylish element of your new décor. Why not order yours today?!
Tip #3 – Spruce Up Your Sofa with Cushions. Available in an almost limitless range of fabrics, patterns, colours and sizes, cushions are a wonderful (and highly cost-effective) way to give your tired old sofa a bright new look.

Tip #4 – Check out Your Lighting. Something as little (and inexpensive) as a new lampshade can make a huge difference to how a room looks and feels.
What’s more, replacing mismatched table/bedside lamps with a stylish matching pair and placing one on each side of your bed or sofa will instantly give your room cohesive style.
Tip #5 – Get Creative with Artwork. Cheer up ‘boring’ walls and instantly give your room some interesting focal points with colourful artwork. Create your own or, if you’re not sure you can carry it off, buy ready-to-hang prints, posters, photographs or anything else that takes your fancy.
There are plenty of online retailers that cater for all tastes and budgets, many of which also offer a range of services including ready-made basic frames and custom framing; canvas transfers, wood-mounting and more.
Bonus Tip – Add Style to Your Bedroom. Giving your bedroom an instant ‘lift’ does not have to cost the earth: simply cut some MDF board to size and upholster it with any fabric of your choice to make a totally unique, eye-catching headboard that will give the room a whole new look.
Adding bed linen in matching shades and/or a few scatter cushions (you could even make a few covers from the same material you used on the headboard) will really let you sleep in style…
