7 Ways to Update Your Space on a Small Budget

Sometimes you feel bored with your space – especially at the start of a new season! But every time you want to update your space, you can’t afford a renovation or brand new furniture. However, there are things you can do on a budget to freshen up your space and make it feel like new.

  1. Rearrange your furniture. Sometimes you don’t need to buy anything. You simply need to change your perspective by changing the placement of your furniture. Before you begin to move it all around, sketch out a quick design and measure it all out. Confirm your couch will fit on that wall before you move every stick of furniture to find it won’t fit.

Also, use pads or furniture sliders to move your furniture without harming your floors (or your back). While this tip doesn’t require any money, you do commit to a big change, because it usually means changing what is hanging  on your walls as well the furniture in your room.
