Making your home your own on a budget

DIY

Rather than calling on the experts for a hand with making your home your own, give small tasks a go yourself. Rather than hiring someone to build your flat pack furniture, or getting in professional painters and decorators, get your DIY on and try it out yourself. Worst case scenario is that you’ll have to get a hand, but if you know you’re good at painting (or whatever else you’re planning on doing) then dive in and try!

Charity/Thrift Shops

Charity and thrift shops are full of hidden gems if you take the time to look for them. Not only can you stumble across unexpected antiques, and things you might not have found in standard shops, but you can also save yourself plenty at the same time. It might take a little longer, but it’ll be worth it in the end!

Look online

If you’re looking for something specific, or obscure, or are simply looking to save a bit of cash, looking online for your housing accessories and decorative objects is a great idea. eBay is a really handy tool used by plenty of people to find the weird, the wonderful, and the unexpected so why not try it out yourself? Additionally, online retailers will often have lower prices than retailers with a physical presence due to fewer overheads, so they’re well worth looking into.

Ask friends and family

Asking friends and family if they’ve got any household items they don’t need or want any longer is a good way to get great bits for your new home  – often completely for free. Family members will often offer things if you’re moving, so don’t be afraid to accept the things you do like. They wouldn’t be offering if they weren’t happy to do so!

Be creative

If you’re looking for decorative items such as wall art, cushions, or even a way to revamp your furniture, then you can do so by yourself, often pretty cheaply if you’re careful about where you purchase your supplies. Getting creative with your housing accessories is also a great way to feel like you’re putting a bit more into your home, too, without spending a fortune on it!
