We have found some brilliant tips that are budget friendly and easy to do. Sometimes simple ideas can have a big impact in a room, so try these ideas and let us know what you think.
CLEAR THE CLUTTER
One of the easiest and smartest way to update any room in the house is to clear the clutter. If anything in the room is not used and you are not happy with it, then find another home for it or give it to charity. You can use pretty trunks and storage boxes to control clutter in a room. Not only will they give you extra storage space but will look great in the room too.
DECORATE WITH SCENTED CANDLES AND BOTTLED MATCHSTICKS
Create a candle corner to brighten up any room. Use different sizes and scented candles. With the candles display bottled matchsticks. This will give the displayed candles an elegant look. Buy the bottled matchsticks or make your own by cleaning out a clear glass herb bottle, big enough to hold the length of a matchstick. Then fill up with matchsticks and stick a piece of flint paper at the bottom of the bottle to light the matchsticks with. You can finish off with a pretty label around the bottle.

CHANGE YOUR LIGHTING
Lighting can uplift and change the mood and setting of a room. Try using decorating lamps and uplighters. Highlight a collection of artwork on a wall with a picture wall light. Install lights inside a glass cupboard or cabinet to make a focal point in a room. Add matching lamps to both sides of a bed or sofa and see the impact it has in the room.
Display a collection of different sized artwork together on a wall and make it a focal point. Go a step further and create your own artwork. Collect unusual and pretty wallpaper or fabric samples. Frame them in pretty frames of different sizes. Do something more personal like framing all your house keys from all the different homes and apartments you have lived in, do a collection and print on each frame the address and dates you lived at that address.
