Season 17 of The Block has just started, once again sparking renovation inspiration for Aussies across the country.
But anyone who has ever attempted a home makeover knows that it can easily get expensive. Here, Tess and Luke, 2019 winners of The Block, share their best tips for how to give your home a new look for less.
Draw inspiration from art
A beautiful piece of art is a great way to give your room a luxurious feel, and it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. We love to let the artwork set the tone for the whole room - making the most of the existing colours will create a cohesive style.
Catch.com.au has a selection of great affordable options, including a series of gorgeous prints from Maine & Crawford. The rust colours in the artwork go beautifully with a matching quilt cover set, and will bring all the elements of your room together.
The art of layering
Sometimes, it’s the simple touches that will truly elevate a room. Throwing some decorative cushions on your bed, or layering your duvet with an extra quilt or throw can help lift the look of your space at a relatively low cost.
Engage all the senses
Make sure your room appeals to all senses, by incorporating scented candles, diffusers or essential oils. It’s a quick and budget-friendly way to create an ambience in a room and give it a fresh new feel.
Diversify your decor
Not all decor needs to be wall art and ornaments. By incorporating some stylish, yet practical, items like books, vases, mirrors, or feature lamps, you can accessorise the room without spending money on less functional decor.
