- Recycle your furniture Rather than spending money on a new wardrobe, chest of draws or kitchen cabinets, why not strip the varnish off with sandpaper and then re-paint them. Sandpaper, paint and varnish are a lot cheaper than new furniture and if you paint them yourself you can make them suit any new design theme.
Renovate your floorsIt might sound costly to change the flooring in your house but it can actually be quite cheap and simple. If you have carpets try pulling up a small section, if you have wooden floor boards underneath you may be able to simply sand and varnish them to get brand new looking wooden floors. You might need to put some of your furniture in storage while this renovation is taking place, but you can find cheap storage units to use in the meantime. Alternatively, why not get a professional carpet cleaner in to give them new live, as this will be much cheaper than all new carpets.
Find a bargain If you are after new furnishings and decor, don’t go to the expensive show rooms and high street shops, stick to flea markets, second hand shops and furniture auctions. You may find an old, second hand piece of furniture that just needs a bit of TLC and will look brand new. Auctions especially are a great source of cheap, hidden treasures.
