Home Style || 5 Simple Ideas For Quick Home Renovations

Collaborative Post

Is your home in need of a little TLC? Maybe you need a new kitchen, a lick of paint, or just a general update of your house layout or decor. It can be difficult to find the budget for home renovations, but if you’re scratching your head for ideas, have no fear as I have some shortcuts that may help get you started.

Here are five ideas for a cost-effective home renovation without the hassle - or even the extra price tag!

Keep an Eye out for Clearance Sales

If you have an expensive wish list of furniture or wall art for your home renovation, clearance sales could be a nifty way for you to get your hands on out-of-season stock, or even pre-loved or end of line/last season items.

Some of the best sales in the UK are from companies like Next, where you can find high quality stylish furniture for heavily discounted prices. You can even sign up for a VIP membership that will grant you early access to their incredible seasonal sales!

Enter a Competition to Win a Cash Prize!

There’s no better way to renovate your home than to win a brand new one! Companies like Raffle House offer the chance to win a cash prize to the value of £2 million. You can put towards your dream home and completely overhaul your lifestyle with very little effort. The prize money can be used towards a house purchase, but it can also be used for home renovations to your existing home if you’d prefer. Of course there’s no guarantee you’ll win, but it’s always worth a try - you never know!

Make Small Cosmetic Changes

If your budget is very limited for your renovation, making small cosmetic changes can completely change the look of your home without the hefty price tag.

For example, re-grouting your bathroom can refresh your shower and bath areas without needing to completely replace your tiles, and changing the colour of your rooms with paint or wallpaper, and rearranging your furniture can give a fresher feel to your abode. You can even get left over paint and decorating supplies from places like Facebook marketplace or free sites, as people usually don’t use them all up and prefer to give them away than to dispose of them causing extra waste.

Use Vinyl Wraps for Your Kitchen

A brand new kitchen is one of the pricier things on your list, and can cost thousands of pounds and a whole heap of stress. However, by using vinyl wraps, you could transform your kitchen in a fraction of the time and create a high quality finish. They come in all kinds of colours, textures and even patterns, so they can completely change the look and feel of the room.

Companies like Vinyl Warehouse supply high quality vinyl to cover your kitchen so you can even transform things like your MDF worktops into marble, and wooden cupboards or splash backs into a stylish pattern!

Thrift Online!

If you’re looking for designer goods to decorate your home with, look no further than online marketplaces for a bargain you won’t be able to resist. Sites like eBay, Vinted and Facebook Marketplace can be goldmines for hidden treasures, particularly after Christmas when returns windows have expired or people have replaced older items with new.

For bulkier furniture, eBay or Facebook Marketplace may be your best bet, but don’t rule out visiting charity shops too! Many charity shops sell second hand furniture in excellent condition for a great price, and often free delivery too. You can even upcycle and transform old furniture with simple things like new handles, pin legs and paint.
