Cheap and easy ways to transform a room

We all know that change is as good as a holiday, right? It’s just that… holidays tend to be really expensive. Luckily, changing your room’s layout and general appearance needn’t cost the earth at all. There are a number of tips, tricks and techniques you can employ to transform your living space, giving it new energy and vibrancy.

Changing your surroundings is bound to give you a boost as well – and the chance to put your creativity to the test. Best of all? There are many cheap and low-cost options for giving your space a facelift.

Here are some tips for transforming your space in a cost-effective way:

  • Work with what you already have. Doing so will keep costs low. Take all the furniture out of your room, then start planning. You may want to use a free online interior-decorating program to do so, or download an app to help you make the most of your space.
  • Grouping is good. Group pieces of furniture together to create smaller groupings within a larger space, such as a reading corner with a comfortable chair, side table, reading lamp and cosy rug.
  • Create focal points. Anything spectacular in your living space deserves to be highlighted. If you have a large, beautiful mirror or a special painting, an antique fireplace or a stunning view – arrange your seating and lighting so that these beauties can be appreciated to their fullest.
  • Go with the flow. Flow – or the way people move in and out of a space – is important. Create paths around furniture like couches, tables and chairs, so that people can move about freely and unhindered.
  • See what’s out there. Don’t limit yourself to just rearranging objects in one room. Take a stroll through your house and see if there are other pieces of furniture that can be moved around to liven up an existing space.
