Call in the Professionals
Having carpets cleaned professionally can really lift the look of the room. All sorts of dirt and debris get stuck in the piles and can leave rooms smelling old and musty. A professional carpet cleaner turns carpets back to new as if by magic, and they can aid stain guard shampoos. Cleaning carpets is good for respiratory health and also helps stop the growth of mould or mildew.

Redesign the Garden
Overhaul your whole garden for very little money by moving the pathways, adding light to steps or trip hazard areas and generally spruce up the space with coloured chipping or plants in pots. £150 can go a long way when it comes to garden maintenance. The result will be a garden that you look forward to sitting in, not one you are sick of the sight of.
Give old Furniture a New Life
Simply paint old and tired chairs with pale coloured paint, and once dry, distress lightly with sandpaper. The resulting look will give you a whole new range of furniture. If you prefer a more modern look, gloss paint can create bright and bold looks for tables and chairs that have seen better days. Cheap as a tin or two of paint!
Refresh the Bathroom
One of the quickest ways to give your bathroom a new look is to replace the shower head. There are loads to choose from including some with LED lights yo really make your bathroom bling. A new set of towels and bathmat can lift the room, so can the addition of a blind or new decor items. Again this does not have to cost the earth and can be done on a budget of £150 quite easily.
Space Out the Kitchen
If you are struggling for space in the kitchen, consider installing a wall unit. Walls are often bare and underused, so adding a new cupboard or shelf can transform your kitchen space. Cupboard doors can be painted if the budget does not allow you to have a whole new kitchen, but the results will make you fall in love with your home all over again.
