5 WAYS TO FRESHEN UP YOUR SPACE

Get inspired with these cash-savvy ideas and breathe new life and energy into your living space.


1. RECYCLE
Upcycling as it’s called, is a pocket-friendly way to reinvent your furniture. Take that old table and give it a bright coat of paint, choose a new fabric for your cushion covers, or use glass jars for display, filling them with a few freshly picked flowers. If you have children, you can also use them for sweets – but be sure to keep them out of reach! Don’t be afraid to get creative and think out the box. Literally. Turn an old crate into extra seating by painting it, turning it upside down and placing a bright cushion on top.

2. COLOUR ME PRETTY
A lick of paint is an easy and affordable way to spruce up your home – and you don’t need to do every room. If your budget is tight, paint just one wall in your bedroom or lounge – a statement wall is right on trend! If you love the idea of wallpaper but just can’t afford it, buy vinyls instead. There are a number of patterns and designs you can choose from and the best part is that you don’t have to hire a professional to help you put them up – just stick them on the wall yourself! They’re especially great for a child’s room.

3. MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL
If you want to make a room look bigger, hang a mirror. Be bold with your choices too as mirrors can be as pretty as they are practical. Consider buying ones with statement details like mosaic work. Lighting is another easy way to modernise your space – think floor lamps, pendant lights hanging from the ceiling or a simple ceramic lamp for that side table. If you have a small garden, string a few fairy lights outside for a magical touch.

4. ACCESSORISE
If you’re not ready or don’t have the money for big change, think small – new tiebacks for your curtains, a beautiful vase filled with flowers or some fresh frames for your family photographs will add a nice touch.

5. LOVELY LINEN
There’s nothing better than sleeping on good linen. Comfort aside, a new bedspread or throw will freshen up your bedroom instantly. If you have a little extra money, invest in some pretty scatter cushions too, all available at JetMart.
