Any space can be transformed into something fantastic, and the best news is that it can be done on any size budget too – all you need to do is get a little creative. Quite often you might have overlooked a piece of furniture because you thought it was ugly, but, not anymore. Now when you see that furniture you will be grabbing it with both hands to ensure you get the opportunity to upcycle it first. Adding a new lick of paint or some new handles to make it look the best it has ever looked is now your new mission.

Focus on a Few Things
If your budget is tight, it is best to focus on buying or introducing a few new things, rather than trying to overhaul everything within a space. Focus on key pieces that will both draw the eye in, and spark interest. Look for accessories and items of furniture that truly represent your style and the look you are trying to create.
Utilize the Light
Make the most of any natural light within a space. Use fabrics that reflect the light and also fabrics that let in the light (especially if the space is small). Heavy, dark colors look great in larger spaces but if they are used incorrectly in small spaces the result could be a tiny and quite overbearing space.
Don’t Shy Away From Color
A new color on the walls can make any room or space look fresh and bright. Choose a color that makes the space feel bright, light, warm and airy. If you go for a neutral theme you can then add pops of color with the accessories you add, including rugs and cushions.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
Quite often, it is the small things that matter. From the vase of fresh flowers to the framed prints on the wall, everything can make a difference and everything can make a statement, so choose your accessories carefully and ensure they add something to the look that you are trying to create. Don’t just add things for the sake of it; try to add accessories that add usefulness or storage to your space, such as rattan baskets, which are great for multipurpose use.
Mix, match and rearrange
Quite often rearranging your existing furniture and moving it to a new location within the same room can make any space feel new. Try moving your furniture around and seeing where it might look better within a room. After rearranging furniture, focus on mixing and matching styles and items. Old and new can work well together, so don’t be afraid to experiment by putting older and bolder pieces alongside newer pieces. When sourcing new accessories and furniture, utlize both online and offline marketplaces to help keep costs down.
