Ok, so you want to jazz up your living space pronto without breaking the bank? We hear you! Sometimes you just want to spruce up the aesthetics without the schlep of a full-on reno. Luckily for you, we’ve got some great tips to help you do just that in one day!

Clear the clutter

Tidy up your home and say cheerio to the clutter. Grab that old sweater or pile of books and put them in their rightful place. Trust us, a clutter-free home will give you all the good vibes! If it’s been lying around untouched for a year, it’s time to bid it a real farewell. 


Shuffle things around by moving your furniture to a new spot. A simple rearrangement of furniture can make it feel like your room or living space has had a complete makeover. It’s a no-cost way to add some excitement to your space.

Green it up

You don’t need to have a green thumb to add a touch of nature to your home. Pot some plants and watch the magic happen! Plants bring a breath of fresh air and a sense of calm to your space. Choose easy-to-keep alive species like philodendrons and peace lilies. Air plants in glass jars or beakers are also a trendy way to add a touch of life to your home. 

Art attack

Take a blank wall and turn it into a masterpiece. Get creative by painting a mural, abstract design or adding a wall decal to one of your plain walls. Experiment with painted arches and geometric shapes to add simple, but eye-catching, features to your home.  

Lighten up

Switch up your lighting and transform your home. Swap your light bulbs for warmer or cooler tones, or add some new lamps to create a cozy atmosphere. You’ll be surprised by how much of a difference a change in lighting can make!

Add some color

Splash some color into your home to create a fun and inviting space. The easiest way to do this is to change up your colour scheme every now and then by switching out your scatter cushions or throws. It’s a low-cost way to add some pizzazz to your space.


There you have it! With these easy tips, you can transform your home in a day. Whether you’re decluttering, rearranging your furniture, adding some greenery, hanging some artwork, changing your lighting, or adding some color, you’ll be well on your way to a home that’s uniquely yours.
