If you’re anything like me, then almost every cent you save goes towards travelling and seeing new places. But if you’re in the mood for something different, it can be good to invest in your home. Whether you’re renting or you own your own property, investing in your space can make it feel so much more comfortable and improve how much you enjoy being home. Depending on what you do, it can also increase the value of your property. If you’re on a budget, chances are you’re going to want to make affordable changes that net considerable differences for the investment. Here are three tips for updating your home on a budget without breaking the bank:

1. Look to the Lighting
Lighting can make a huge difference in your home as it influences mood and how you use the space. If you have poor lighting, it can make it quite hard to cook and to do your make up. Too harsh of lighting in the living areas can also make it hard to relax and really unwind after a long day at work. Older lighting fixtures can also look really out of date and make the home look a lot older. Investing in good lighting can really change how space feels and the good thing about investing in good quality bulbs and light fixtures is that you can take them with you if you move.

2. Consider a Feature Wall
I personally love feature walls as I think they add a ton of personality to a home without much of an investment and there’s basically no downtime. Choose an area of your home that you feel lacks a bit of personality and get some paint samples to see what colour would work best. I personally prefer light, neutral colours throughout the home like whites and greys, with a pop of colour somewhere interesting from a funky neon sign or something similar. One thing that I think works really well is having a feature wall behind where the TV will be in a darker colour to make the TV stand out less. The great thing about adding in a feature wall is that you can easily change it or cover it up should you move.

3. Some Art
Art is another great investment that can add a lot of personality to your property, but one of the best aspects of art is that you can also easily take it with you should you move. Obviously, the type of art you invest in will depend on your personal preferences, budget and style, but there’s a world of fun art out there looking to be bought and collected. On the same breath it can be nice to invest in displaying your own family pictures around the home like art, and having them wrapped around canvas is an affordable and fun way to do that.
