PVC window systemSpending a lot of time at home is something we’re all guilty of. Therefore, it’s important to at least be happy with the way it looks and functions. However, to be happy with your home, you might need to improve it first. Of course, this may not be possible if you’re operating on a budget. So to help anyone get a step closer to their dream home, we’ve compiled this list of budget home-improvement ideas.

1. Use stick-on LED lights and save money

PVC entrance door When fitted under kitchen cabinets, recessed spotlights are great for illuminating your kitchen countertops. However, a more budget-friendly way of achieving the same effect is to use stick-on LED push lights instead.

2. Inject a new lease of life into your walls with a fresh coat of paint

Repainting the walls is a really common home-improvement option and for good reason. It can transform the look of a home, really brighten it up and can be done so relatively cheaply. Check out this guide on how to paint a room so you can get the best results. If you only have a few marks on the walls that you’d like covering, find a tester pot that matches the wall colour and save yourself some more money.

3. Cost-effective window solutions

Here at Monmouthshire Windows, we install REHAU uPVC casement windows which are the perfect mixture of high-performance and cost-effective. If you’re replacing your current windows, the money they’ll knock off your energy bills also means they’ll save you considerable amounts on heating as the years go by.

4. A whitening pen for grimy grouting

5. Charity shop rugs

Adding a rug or two to a room can add a layer of depth without breaking the bank. This is especially true if buying them from your local British Heart Foundation furniture store or an alternative charity shop. With this method, not only will you save yourself some money, but you’ll also raise some for charity too!

6. DIY kitchen transformation

It’s possible to dramatically change the appearance of your without paying for a complete kitchen makeover. One way of doing so is to install new kitchen countertops. Laminate countertops are one of the most cost-effective options available and if you’re prepared to fit them yourself, prepare to enjoy further savings.

7. Restore leather sofas with shoe polish

If you have a tired-looking leather sofa, you needn’t replace it just yet. Give it a clean with shoe polish first and restore its look without forking out for a replacement.
