Whether you’re moving into your first home and have lots to buy or your current furniture has seen better days, kitting out your new home can get pretty expensive. From appliances to furniture, you don’t always have to purchase brand new things, in fact, there are money other ways that you can save money on new items.
Read on for all you need to know about saving money on furniture.
Upcycle old items
Why not give your current furniture an update? Seeing the same furniture every day can make you bored of it, however, with a lick of paint and some creative thinking you can make and old item look completely new. Bookcases and dressers, for example, can be brightened up with colourful paint, have the draws lined in jazy wallpaper and swap old knobs for beautifully designed alternatives. You’d be surprised how much of a difference a little TLC can make and you’ll be saving money too.
Check out charity shops
Charity shops often have hidden gems when it comes to homeware and furniture. If you want something a little bit different for your home, such as vintage pieces, take a look in your local charity shops and you could find the perfect piece at an affordable price. The same can be said for car boot sales too – as they say, one mans trash is another man’s treasure!
Looking on selling forums
Social media can also be used to find things for your home. Facebook is full of selling pages with people looking to sway or sell their unused or nearly new items, some of which are often going for free! You can also post ads if you’re looking for a specific item and find people in your local area who are selling exactly what you need.
