This article below also contains a few useful tips to start you off.

1. Improve your lighting

Good lighting makes all the difference in a room and brings a lot of ambience and brightness. It thus paramount to ensure that all your lighting in the house is working properly, and also that you have efficient lights in all the rooms of your home. Choose light bulbs that are large enough to provide sufficient light to a room. You can also get creative and purchase a chandelier which not only does a good job in lighting up a place but also adds a lot of style to your home. When selecting lampstands and lampshades choose those with stylish designs and patterns since they will help you spruce up your place and add some character to your home. Pay attention to the dark spaces and corners of your rooms and ensure these too also have lighting. Moreover, try as much as possible to let in a lot of natural light into your home. You can achieve this by leaving your windows fully open during the day with all your curtains drawn. However, if you would prefer a little more privacy, you may purchase some gossamer curtains which are pretty light and let in a lot of natural light into your home.

2. Clear out the clutter

In order to improve your home and make it a whole lot more comfortable and habitable, you have to clear the clutter in your house. Clutter lying around will make your space appear quite small while in the real sense it may be larger than you think. One good way to save on space and clear the clutter is to install cabinets, for example, in the kitchen, where you can store all your utensils and stuff. In the living room, invest in some handy shelves which you can store, for example, books and magazines, photos and a few decorative pieces. As for the bedroom, ensure you have enough closet space which can fit all your clothes, shoes and other belongings. Remember to always keep it organized.  

3. Do some DIY

DIY stands for Do It Yourself, and can really help you improve your home on a budget. For instance, you can give your home a whole new makeover by repainting it, which is quite an easy job that you can complete with the help of a few friends and family. If you love nature and enjoy having plants and flowers in your home, try and plant them yourself instead of purchasing potted plants. This will help you save some cash. Do some embroidery on your cushions, pillows and curtains. This will help them appear stylish and will make your home beautiful, all on a budget.
