Styling on a budget? Quick and easy tips to breathe some style back into your space

Do you love styling your home, but don’t always have the budget you need? You’re not alone. The good news is that Insta-worthy houses don’t have to cost the earth. In fact, with these clever tricks and tips you can achieve the stylish home you crave – with money left over to spare!

Less is more

A good way to rejuvenate an area is actually to take things away – particularly if you’re styling to sell. Get rid of any clutter, personal items or polarising colours because buyers love to imagine themselves living in a space. We need to make that job easy. Bring in some simple additions like an inexpensive new rug or a cosy throw. These add texture and softness to a room and lift the area into a comfortable and welcoming space.


Styling a room doesn’t have to mean buying everything brand new. In fact, brand new can also be quite boring. Don’t be afraid to express your individuality by including some vintage chic! Have a look through your local op shop for interesting items that stand out from the crowd and will be unique to your home.

Go green

Plants and foliage are a great way to elevate a room and keep it feeling fresh and new. Use pots or baskets to bring the outside in and let everyone enjoy the serenity of nature throughout the property. It has a beautiful and calming effect – and it’s super cheap and easy to achieve.

Splurge on key pieces

There are times when you do need to spend some decent money – but save it for timeless classics that won’t date. Think art, furniture, or even quality bed linen. Consider including a showstopper like some statement wallpaper or dress the walls with bespoke artwork and framed photos to add depth and personality.
