7 Easy and Low-Cost Ways to Update a Room


Have a room that needs some refreshing and updating but don’t want to spend too much money? Here are seven easy and low-cost ways to give your room a fresh makeover.

1. Rearrange the furniture

Simply rearranging the furniture in a room can make the room feel bigger or cozier. You can even add or subtract a piece or two. Having a difficult time visualizing a different room setup? Use a free, online tool like Roomstyler 3D Planner to place your furniture pieces in the room and move it around without having to exert more effort than clicking and moving your mouse.

2. Add a different style with new décor accessories

Change the theme of a room easily with different accessories. A few carefully collected pieces like frames, candles and decorations can give a room a brand-new feel. Can’t think of a theme? Try bamboo, metallic, rustic or vintage pieces.

3. Redo furniture with slipcovers

Tired of the look or feel of a couch or other piece furniture? You don’t have to spend money on a new piece. Try a slipcover. If you can’t find the right size in stores, you can search on Pinterest for easy to make slipcover ideas.

4. Add art

Artwork can give a new feel to a new a room, but artwork can be expensive. One easy and fun way is to make your own! Gallery walls are great and fun ways to display photographs. Or if more color is what you’re looking for, you can frame scrapbook paper or fabric or paint your own abstract artwork by painting a canvas.

5. Change the curtains

Windows can really frame a room and changing or even adding curtains can give your room a fresh new look for a relatively inexpensive cost.

6. Paint

Paint can be expensive, but if you have a smaller room or are just using one color, a fresh coat of paint can quickly brighten a room making it feel brand new again for a small cost.

7. Removable wallpaper

Easy to change and remove altogether, removable wallpaper is a fun and great way to try out a bold design in a room, without changing anything else.
