5 Ways to Freshen Your Home for Less

Including of course, regrouting your bathroom, laundry, or shower!

With the cooler weather starting to creep back in, you might be starting to think about freshening up
your home. Good idea! Just don’t stress if you don’t have the budget for a total overhaul - there is
plenty you can do to brighten things up without breaking the bank, starting with these 5 tips!

  1. Update your paint:

A small tin of paint and a good paintbrush or roller can work wonders to instantly freshen a room.
Consider a warm white, it goes with everything and makes for a timeless backdrop for any other
changes you may make down the track. You don’t have to tackle every room, focus on where you
spend the most time – the living room or kitchen/dining area is a great place to start.

  1. Wash your windows:

It might sound boring – but it makes a HUGE difference! Start on the outside, and spend time rinsing
them well before using a window cleaning product to save on elbow grease and time! Especially at
this time of year before the rain really starts, if you have already done the hard work it is much
easier to maintain and the rain can help keep future dirt and dust build up at bay!

  1. Hang a mirror:

You can spend anywhere from $60 to $600 on a mirror but whatever your budget, you’ll be amazed
and how it can transform a room. You can lean a tall one up against a wall if you have the space for
that relaxed feel or for a more modern look use a black/wrought iron circle mirror hung in the
bedroom or hallway to create a sense of extra space/luxury.

  1. Change your cushions:

You don’t need to buy whole new cushions (which can be pretty expensive) - use your current ones
and just find some cool new cushion covers! Even if the cushions you have at home don’t have
removeable covers, so long as you find new covers a shade darker you can pop them over the top
and no one will be the wiser! Plus, this way you can remove the covers to wash them easily too.
You’re welcome!

  1. Regrout your shower/bathroom:

This is a total no-brainer. If you shower is looking a little grubby, if there is grout and silicone that is
stained and falling apart, you don’t have to consider re-tiling – simply regrout! You will be amazed at
what a difference it makes to not only your shower, but the whole bathroom, too! Check out our
gallery of before and afters and you’ll see there is no shower too old or too far gone for our grout
experts – we’ll have it looking brand new again in just a few short hours.

He worked till 8pm on the second night to finish up and he applied multiple trade skills to make it come together for me. If he’s up for promotion/pay rise anytime soon I couldn’t think of any one more deserving because of his work ethic and skill set. Just thought I’d let the company know how happy I am.

I just wanted to thank your team for an amazing tile renovation that was recently carried out in our home. People are blown away by the transformation and the high standard of the work. I am one very satisfied customer. I would be more than happy for you to use me for a reference. Many thanks.
