This time of the year is the most common time for people to start thinking about making changes, improvements, and planning a spring clean. However, it is also the time of year where people struggle with money the most. After the cost of Christmas and the new year bringing new budgets, many people are living to a strict budget but still have the urge or need to complete home improvements.

The good news? You don’t need a huge budget to make your home look and feel newer, you just need to complete a few minor, and often inexpensive tasks. Let’s have a look at some of the ways you can do this in some of the common rooms in your home: 

Your Bathroom 

This is often a room that gets forgotten about and left time and time again because it is known as a room that may be small but can be costly to renovate. You do not need to renovate your bathroom to give it a new lease of life. Try some of these small tasks to improve your bathroom at a huge cost: 

  • Re-do the grouts on the tiles 
  • Replace the sealant around the bath, sink, and toilet
  • Replace the toilet seat
  • Change the taps or de-scale them
  • Use an unblocker on the drains 
  • Clear any limescale and scum from the shower screen 
  • Change the shower curtain for a screen
  • Update the lighting 

Your Kitchen

This is another room that people presume is going to be expensive to update, this is because they instantly think that they need to replace the whole kitchen. And, yes if you replace your entire kitchen it can sometimes be costly, however, it is possible to update and improve your kitchen without spending a fortune, some of the things you can do include: 

  • Replacing the worktops 
  • Changing the cupboard doors or painting them
  • Updating the appliances one by one
  • Changing the cupboard handles 
  • Updating the lighting 
  • Adding a boiling water tap 
  • Add in a coffee machine 

Your Master Bedroom 

The master bedroom is surprisingly one of the rooms that get left off the list. Not usually because it’s expensive to complete but because other rooms such as the guest room, children’s rooms, and main living areas get the attention first. This usually means that when it comes to the master bedroom there isn’t a lot left in the budget. Instead of trying to complete it on a budget, it gets left. You don’t need to do this though, you can easily make changes to your master bedroom with breaking the bank. You could even do a little bit month by month. Some of the things you cups change include: 

  • Adding a feature wall
  • Adding in some plants 
  • Changing the bed that has storage underneath
  • Adding in plenty of additional storage 
  • Updating your bedding 
  • Updating the  curtains, blinds, and voils
  • Cleaning the carpets and adding in some rugs 
  • Adding a few throws and cushions

These small changes can all be done bit by bit and on a budget, this way you can keep within your means and work your way towards the home that you are after. Do you have any other tips that could help? Please share some of them in the comments.
