Itty Bitty Ways to Update Your Home Without Blowing Your Budget

1. Change out the throw pillows.


Throw pillows are those tiny details that make a big impact on a particular space, especially if the colour or print of the throw pillow cases are as bold and as bright as the ones pictured above.

2. Place a mirror in a light-deprived space to bounce off any available light.


Narrow spaces and rooms with few or no windows need a reflective surface so that whatever light becomes available may bounce off it and are distributed throughout the room.

3. Paint kitchen cabinets.


What a big difference paint makes to your space. This trick is not just limited to kitchen cabinets; painting an accent wall in a living room or bedroom, for example, will completely reinvigorate a blah space.

4. Rearrange furniture.



Switching up the furnishings and changing up the room layout does wonders in transforming the way a room looks. Check out our story on how to change the look of your room without spending a single dollar.

5. Replace generic light fixtures with something more eye-catching.


Light fixtures are generally easy to remove and replace, so pick a lamp set that goes well with the look or style of your room, instead of the generic bulb that came with the space, and instantly up the style ante.
