Your home’s décor says a lot about you, décor is a great way to express your personality and style and over time.

As your tastes change you’ll want to change up your décor to reflect that, whether it be hanging posters of your new favourite band, utilising a new favourite colour in your design scheme or even just looking for a new bedside table that’s more ‘you’.

Upgrading your home’s décor is a fun activity – Looking around shops for décor pieces that match with your style, planning out your perfect layout etc. But unfortunately, if you get too caught up in shopping for new pieces you can end up spending more than you bargained for.

Luckily there are some things you can do to cut down the cost of upgrading your home’s décor – Mainly by upgrading what furnishings you already have rather than purchasing everything brand new.

So in this post we’ll look at some furnishings and décor pieces around your home you can upgrade rather than replace to get a new look without having to spend too much money!

Swap Out Lampshades

Lamps are a great décor piece to use in your home, not only are they useful in lighting up rooms, they can also be rather stylish and found in a wide range of styles to fit any décor scheme – But outright buying new lamps can be quite costly.

So rather than replacing your lamps at home, why not swap out the lampshade? There is still a wide range of styles to pick from and lamp shades by themselves cost a lot less than a brand new lamp – So you can get the look of a new lamp without shelling out for one.

New Cushion Covers

Cushions are another great furnishing – making any room comfier with their presence and providing a nice décor touch at the same time. While cushions aren’t expensive by themselves if you want to get multiple new scatter cushions the cost can quickly add up.

But rather than buying all new cushions, you can simply replace the cushion covers on your existing cushions. Cushion covers are usually cheaper than actual cushions, which will save you money and you should be able to find cushion covers that fit your style and you can even get custom cushion covers made with a print of your choice for a personal touch.

Replace Your Blinds

Blinds are an important part of any room of your house: they keep light out, provide you with privacy and are an excellent way to add a touch of colour to a room. Unfortunately though blinds especially ones made to measure can be rather expensive to buy an all new blind.

But – you can simply replace the fabric of your blinds rather than buying all new blinds. Whether you want to change colours or replace an ugly old blind you can purchase replacement blind slats for a price much lower than a whole new set of blinds and replace the fabric on your existing blinds.
