Tweaking your home on a budget




Tweaking your home on a budget

Thinking about selling but the house looks out of date? Sometimes it’s the accumulation of small things that really can transform your house. Here are some budget-friendly tips from the Hinternoosa team to get your house ready for sale!


A little splash of paint can make a world of difference. Whites, greys and neutrals are a big trend now. If you have a small house, try painting the rooms all white to make the space look and feel bigger, you can go in and add some nice feature walls to bring back the warmth or head to tip 4 to see how to get some love back into your abode.

  2. Proper lighting can truly bring a room to life. A poorly lit room looks small, dark and cramped, while a brightly lit room appears open, airy and welcoming. There are numerous ways to brighten up your home with lights. Some of the easier methods are as simple as buying table lamps and floor lamps for your home.

    Strategically place tall floor lamps in dark corners and watch your room come alive. Layer this lighting with lamps on side tables, making the room feel welcoming and cosy.


Give the gardens a fresh look by pruning, mowing, weeding and mulching. Clean your driveways, paths, concrete areas and exterior walls with a good old power-wash, this can instantly make your house look 10 years younger. Make the outdoors matter by creating an outdoor entertaining area. Adding some funky solar lights, outdoor rugs and investing in some seating and hanging plants is all it takes.

  2. Setting up a mood and showing the future homeowners the potential of your house is an additional step. Try hanging some nice prints, add new rugs and wicker baskets with indoor plants to make the house feel like a home. Throw rugs give warmth and can add great texture, colour and personality to your living space. Hardwood floors are beautiful and easy to maintain but they lack the comfort that carpeted floors offer, especially in the cooler months. Area rugs can add fun and functionality to your living space. Use several of varying patterns and fabrics together to showcase your character or add rugs of the same pattern and fabric, or different textures but the same colour. The possibilities are endless.
