Switch door hardware – Old door and cupboard hardware can make a home seem dated, but lukily door hardware is cheap and easy to replace. You can choose door knobs with sleek metal designs for a more modern look or you can find old fashioned styles depending on the look you want to create.

Get Arty – Art has a repurtation for being expensive, but if you look around you’ll find there are plenty of art pieces around that wont break the bank. A great place to look for original yet inexpensive art is at markets, or online where you can get any print you want transferred onto canvas.

Start Painting – If you have a bit more time and money to spend, then painting is a great way to update a room or an entire house.
