Some homes just have it. Whether it’s a large character home or a small, modern apartment. You walk in and the space just feels good. Homely.

So what makes these homes different? What’s their secret? Well, it’s not necessarily a professional decorator. There are heaps of ways you can create a homely, comfortable living space on a budget, while making sure it’s a true reflection of your unique personality and lifestyle. Read on to learn the small (and mostly free) things you can do to transform your house into a home.


1. Add Life With Greenery!

There are stacks of benefits to adding plants and greenery to your living space. Having flowers in a home adds colour and interest. Also, because they release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, plants can help to purify the air in your home. If you’d prefer a pot plant rather than replacing flowers each week or so, be sure to do your research and go with a low maintenance option if it’s better suited to your busy lifestyle Guys – this tip applies to you too! While not every bloke appreciates flowers, a few sprigs from a tree or a florist will do the trick, in a more masculine way.

2. Turn Everyday Items Into Something Different

You’ll find plenty of inspo on Instagram and Pinterest for this home tip. It’s time to think outside the square and use decorative items for different uses. For example, perhaps your grandma has a vintage/leather suitcase she no longer uses. Could it be used as furniture? Perhaps as a coffee table, or as a storage space? Perhaps you have pretty glass bottles or jars which could serve as vases or candle holders. Or a wine collection would could be displayed more impressively.

3. Sorting What’s In Storage

Moving house is the perfect opportunity to sort through your clutter. You’ll probably be chucking a lot of stuff in the bin, as well as finding items which bring back fond memories. But wait! Before you savour that memory and place the item back into the drawer, never to be seen again ‘til your next move….stop and think: could this be brought out of storage? There’s a fair chance many items you have hidden away, like photos and family heirlooms, could be dusted off and put out on display. Having these personal memories ‘anchored’ around the house will definitely add a warm and fuzzy feeling. Plus, they’ll be a talking point when you have guests over.
