Money Saving Decorating Trends

Decorating your home is exciting, but with so many angles to cover it can be a daunting task. You’ve got to choose a colour scheme, decide on the right paint or paper, pick some furniture and keep it all in budget. However, with a few tips and tricks you can save a lot of money, freeing up extra cash for you to spend on your home. Here are some of the best decorating trends which save you money.

Buy Online – More and more people are buying kitchens, bathrooms and furniture online. If you’re willing to forgo seeing the product first hand and instead have your purchases shipped to you it could save a great deal of money. You do have to be careful if you use this method and be sure that you’ve precisely measured out the dimensions, but aside from that it’s a safe and affordable way to buy in large items such as baths and even whole kitchens.

Who needs carpet? Original floorboards offer an easy, attractive and affordable alternative to carpet and look good with all different styles of home. We’re not talking about the tacky laminate flooring that you click together like a jigsaw puzzle, but the original, good quality floorboards that your house was built with. By ripping up the carpet and sanding your boards down you’ll reveal attractive flooring which is already there. No need to pay for more carpet, all you need to buy is a belt sander (costing around £50) and get to work! Sanding down the floorboards can be tiring, but you’ll save a lot of money and it looks great when it’s done. Just add two coats of wood protector to finish it off.

Second hand bargains – Long gone are the days when second hand meant rubbish. These days ‘vintage’ shops are thriving on the business of selling things on which have already seen years of use. Dining tables can be an expensive buy, but if you’re willing to look around for a second hand one you can get a really good deal. If you’re even more creative and willing to restore a dining table (which can be as easy a giving it a quick sand down) then you won’t believe how cheap it can be.

Of course it’s important to take good care of your home, and to ensure your precious possessions are kept safe you need to update your home contents insurance when you decorate. Bringing in new items will increase worth of your home and your insurance company will need to know this. Premiums are calculated using the total value of your home’s contents, and if they go up then your premium may well go up too, but avoid paying this and you may find that your items are not fully insured. Our recommendation is to check out a reliable provider such as Legal and General. You can browse their site at www.legalandgeneral.com where they have a lot of important information about their legal and general home contents insurance, as well as a helpful calculator to work out how much the contents of your home are worth.
