Four interior design tips for those on a budget + WIN £500 to spend at B&Q
Fancy sprucing up your living room but don’t have the budget for a complete overhaul? Check out our tips below and don’t forget to enter the competition to win a £500 B&Q gift card.
Get things on the wall
Create a more personal feel at home by carefully selecting what you hang on your wall. Pick art because you like it and it reflects your personality, not because it just fills a space. Personal photographs are great talking points when guests visit and mounted prints and framed fabrics can add an interesting focal point.
If the base shade of your room is neutral, you’ve the whole colour spectrum to play with. Any old sofa or dull carpet can be instantly revived with a bright or patterned cushion or rug. However, don’t go over the top; less is usually more when working with block colours.
Allow light to enter a room without interruptions. Remove objects from windowsills and try replacing heavy curtains with blinds. Mirrors are great for maximising light so hang them opposite windows. Instead of relying on a single bulb, try using directional lights on a track, which can also highlight your favourite piece of wall art.
Keep it natural
Having plants in the house not only add a splash of colour but can increase the quality of the air in your home. They require little maintenance and some flower all year round brightening up any space.
