Update Your Shelves
When was the last time you rearranged your bookshelves? Why not go through your books and organize them in a different way so that your shelves look refreshed without even spending a penny.

Decorate Your Walls
If you have bare walls in your home, they can make the rooms feel empty even if they’re crammed with furniture. Try creating an art feature wall by hanging lots of different pieces. If you don’t want too much art on the wall, try adding a mixture of items like mirrors or textile pieces like macramé. You can find a lot of these things second-hand too, so they won’t cost you a fortune, but they’ll completely transform the room.
Rearrange The Rooms
Another cost-free way you can spruce up your home is to rearrange the furniture in each room. Try moving your sofa away from the blank wall and popping it underneath the window. Not only will you be able to feel the warm sun on your back, but you’ll also be able to sit and watch the view whenever you feel like it. Changing up the layout of your home can be a great way to create more space and means that you have the room to add more furnishings if you like. You could also swap pieces between rooms to bring new life into each of them. Try bringing the vases from the dining room into the living room for an easy refresh.

If you have cupboards that are crammed with stuff, spend some time going through them all. Get rid of any junk that you’ve accumulated over time and organize what you have left. You can find great storage solutions that fit into cabinets now too, so you can really create a neat and tidy cupboard.
Change Up Your Accessories

Second-hand stores are brilliant for finding unique and interesting trinkets too, so you don’t have to break the bank. You could even go as far as changing up your accessories seasonally. For instance, you could have little pumpkins and rustic looking pieces in the autumn, and then swap them out for floral and pastel coloured trinkets in the springtime. Changing up your accessories regularly will mean you won’t get bored of them, and your home will consistently feel brand new.
Update Your Rugs

You don’t have to go for the ones that cover the entire floor either, opting for a smaller but interesting rug can really spruce up the room.
