**This is a collaborative post

Need to do some updates and touch ups around your home but lacking the funds to be able to do exactly what you want? Don’t worry, you don’t always need to spend a fortune getting your abode up to top notch. There are many ways you can do things up on next to nothing. Check out these quick ideas for some home improvements on a budget.

Paint your cabinets

Are you considering updating your kitchen but the money you’d need to spend is just too daunting? A great way to give your kitchen a fresh look is by painting your cabinets.

Paint in general

Adding a touch of paint anywhere is an easy, cheap and reliable way of making everything appear brighter and newer. You can even experiment with different colours, there’s no reason you have to stick to the original colour of whatever it is you’re painting! We gave our hallway a complete makeover for hardly anything just by giving it a fresh coat of paint. You can see how we did it in this post.

Re-think what you’ve already got

Sometimes using furniture from another room can really make the place feel brand new! There might be something from another room that can be put to perfect use in the room you’re doing up and you didn’t even know? As well, reshuffling furniture is another way to get this fresh feel completely free.

Refinish or get your floors deep cleaned

If you’re lucky enough to have wood flooring in your home, then you’re probably aware that it can be sanded down and refinished to eradicate any stains and scratches that have occurred over the years. With carpet, you can hire someone to give it a deep clean, we promise that you’ll notice a difference! Neither of these options are free, but certainly cheaper than re placing your whole floor. The floor can make or break a room, so pay close attention to it!

Organise and declutter

The modern interior is all about clean spaces and organisation. Gone are the days of lots of little ornaments and hording things. Life is complicate and full of puzzles as it is without us creating more in our interior! As annoying as it, it’s inevitable that stuff will get dumped on our clear surfaces whether we like it or not, especially if you’ve got pesky kids! Get rid of anything that you’ve not used in months, life’s too short to be keeping unnecessary clutter. If you clear out your cupboards then you have plenty of room for things you do use – organisation is key!

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Introducing a mirror into your room is a great way to make smaller spaces appear bigger and lighter than they really are. The best thing is that you can place mirrors in pretty much any room, they go well anywhere not to mention they’re really useful!

Update furnishings

If you’re not in the mood to splash out on a new sofa or furniture, then buying new cushions and throws is a great way to give a totally different look. These are very inexpensive, with more large stores having a good collection.

Of course, nothing beats giving your home a total revamp! But if you follow even one of these quick and cheap fixes, then you’re bound to notice a difference!
