Is your house in dire need of a new look, but you do not want to spend a fortune on it? No worries, here are some fantastic ideas for home improvement on a budget:

1. Carpets
Carpets provide a lush, warm atmosphere and comfortable softness and warmth for bare feet. However, if you live in a home where the carpets have not been maintained, it can also look tired and dirty. A great home improvement tip is to replace your carpets. This is an affordable solution that will refresh your entire living space.

Current design trends favour softer carpets in cooler colours such as greys, blues and greens to create a modern look. Alternatively, bold patterns are popular to make a statement.

2. Laminate Flooring
The popularity of hardwood flooring is continuing to grow. It gives a feeling of richness and authenticity to a room. However, this can be a very costly home improvement choice. Luckily, laminate flooring provides an affordable alternative without having to compromise on the aesthetic appeal of a solid wood floor.

Laminates feature a thin sliver of real wood that is covered by a tough exterior layer of resin. This lets you enjoy the full visual effect of real wood while providing excellent protection against scratches, stains and impact damage.

3. Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Against all expectations, luxury vinyl tiles have made a spectacular comeback over the last couple of years, proving to be a top choice for affordable flooring that looks great. Modern luxury vinyl tiles are exceptionally affordable, scratch-resistant and waterproof, making them the perfect choice for just about anywhere.

What’s more, the photorealistic finish means that it can mimic just about every material or pattern, including marble, wood and custom patterns. What makes this great for home improvement on a budget, is that you can install it on top of your existing floor, as long as the surface is flat.

4. Artificial Grass
Turn your space into a picture-perfect haven with durable, always-green artificial grass. No more patchy lawns, unkempt courtyards or dry and brittle grass. Enjoy a lush, lively lawn all year round with this great addition.

Not only will it transform your space into a vibrant oasis, but it also holds many other benefits, starting with the fact that you no longer have to water or mow the lawn. Instead, your garden is green across the entire space and there is less dirt to be stepped into your home. Now that is the type of home improvement that makes a whole lot of sense.

5. Blinds
Modernise your interior with some new blinds. Windows are a huge feature in every house, and with modern blinds, you can enhance these features, as well as control the amount of light that enters a room without compromising on privacy.

Trendy bamboo blinds will add some warmth to a room, as will wooden Venetian blinds. If you prefer a more sleek, modern look, try some aluminium blinds. Or go the classic route with some timeless white shutters.
