If you want to give your home celeb style on budget, then there are a few different things you can do to get that look. Even if you don’t have much to spend on your home, here are some simple ways to upgrade your living space.
A large kitchen that needs to come together can benefit from a kitchen island. Kitchen islands can be inexpensive, and can often be installed yourself, but they can add an expensive look to the room. They are also practical, giving you a space to peel, chop and prep, or you can add stools to the island to make a stylish breakfast bar.
Taps and fittings
If you want to update your kitchen or bathroom, one way you can do so is changing the taps. You can easily replace like for like, and this can upgrade your room easily. One style that has taken off in recent years is gold taps, which add some celeb style with minimal effort.
Changing fittings such as towel rails, handles and even cabinets can also make a big difference, and can completely change the look of a room.
Whether it’s your front or back garden, landscaping your outdoor space instantly upgrades your home and makes it look neater from the outside.
You can also add features such as:
- A driveway
- Patio or decking
- Fencing and gates
Landscaping can be done by the professionals, although it’s also possible to do a DIY job if you don’t mind hard work.
Add shutters to your windows
Curtains and blinds can look dated, so if you want to add a luxe look to your home, you may wish to replace them with shutters. Again, shutters can be easy to install if you’re good at DIY, but you may want to get them professionally measured and installed, so you get the best possible fit. Shutters don’t just look good, they can also help you spend less on air con and heating.
You often don’t need to completely decorate a room to upgrade it. Simply changing the flooring can make a big difference. Installing grey stone tiles can add a stylish touch to your home, and create a neutral look in any room. Natural stone is also easy to look after and is cosy in the winter and cool in the summer, so you get the best of both worlds.
Add some feature walls
If you can’t be bothered to completely paint or wallpaper a room, take a look at some online inspiration for feature walls. You can easily change the look of a room by adding some vintage wallpaper, adding a mural or simply just having one wall in a bright colour and the rest in neutral tones. Best of all, a feature wall hardly takes any time to do, so it’s a good, basic project.
Not everyone can live in a mansion, but there are ways to upgrade your home and give it a touch of star style.
