Transforming the look and atmosphere of your home can be a rewarding experience. Adding decorations, re-arranging furniture and perhaps doing a bit of repainting are all part of the plan.

Even the smallest touches can completely revitalise your living space. And you can make this happen with budget-friendly ideas.

Check out these tips on jazzing up your home for less.

Green is in.


Spruce up your home by bringing the outside indoors. We’re talking about plants. Not only do they add a more relaxed and rustic appearance to your home, but they also help purify the air.

Don’t have a green thumb? Not a problem. There are plenty of low-maintenance plants that thrive indoors.

Monstera Deliciosa and the ZZ plant are highly recommended. Both plants have pretty and uniquely shaped leaves. You also only need to water them once a week. All they need is a spot that receives bright to medium indirect light. Get both at Amazon.

When you use Zilch, you can pay in 4 over 6 weeks with 0% APR or pay in 1 to earn 5% cashback in Zilch Rewards, which you can use to discount future purchases.

Turn plates into wall art.


Paintings and art prints can be expensive. Hanging plates on your wall is a cheaper way to add a chic touch to your home. Unused china plates and dainty plates with decorative designs will make good decors.

If you have used and slightly chipped plates, you can even paint them yourself or with an inspirational quote to add a quirky twist.

Secure it with an invisible wall plate hanger and get this floral porcelain plate from H&M Home. When you use Zilch, you’ll only pay £1.75 on your first instalment and pay the rest in 3 more instalments over 6 weeks, all with zero fees.

Illuminate your space with fairy lights.

They’re not just for your Christmas tree. Fairy lights can make any part of your place cosier and the ambience, homelier.

They’re super versatile too. You can drape over the sides of your furniture to light up their silhouette and make them stand out. Fairy lights are also a softer way to light up your bedroom.

Wrap them around your bedposts or rest them atop your headboard to give your room a warm, inviting glow. You can also make a DIY lamp by putting fairy lights inside a jar, empty fishbowl or bottle.

These LED fairy lights from IKEA consume up to 85% less energy and last 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Use Zilch to split your payments into 4 over 6 weeks, 0% APR.

Create a candle corner.


Aromatherapy helps reduce stress levels. Having a scented candle corner in your home will not only create a more relaxing ambience, but it will also make your home look more elegant.

You can set up your candle corner in your living room and light them up while you meditate or do yoga. Or put them in your bedroom to help you sleep better. You can also put them in the bathroom and light them up while having a hot bath and listening to music.

Delight your senses with the fresh exotic blend of Vanilla and Himalayan Magnolia, the fruity, tropical aroma of Pineapple and Rosemary or the floral goodness of Island Rose and African Geranium. Get all these Botanica scented candles at Wilko. And yes, you can pay in 4 over 6 weeks with Zilch. 0% APR.

Make a statement with your bath towels.

Towels are essential. Unused ones are usually rolled up in the cupboard, whilst face and bath towels are slung over the back of doors.

You can merge functionality with style by accessorising bath towels and treating them as your own pieces of bathroom art.

Add a splash of colour to your bathroom with this cream and pink polka-dotted towel from IKEA and tie-dye patterned towel from H&M Home. Zilch them to split your payments into. 4 over 6 weeks with zero fees!

See? Revamping your home décor without spending a fortune is easy to do. So what’s stopping you? Get creative, follow the tips above and give your living space a personal touch. Enjoy the new look and ambience of your home sweet home.
