If you're tired of your kitchen, bedroom or living room's look, but don´t want to break the bank by buying expensive new furniture, this one's for you! There are ways to give your space a whole new look without spending much of your hard-earned money. Adding a new rug or putting up some wallpaper will do wonders for your home. There's no need to buy everything new from head-to-toe! How? We'll let you in on our little interior decorating secrets, so keep reading!

Never underestimate the power of a new rug. Many people when they think about updating their space and giving it a makeover they think about adding new furniture or buying expensive new accessories. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Sometimes all it takes is adding a new rug to bring all your existing furniture to life. A rug can make or break your space, so take your time in choosing the right one for you.  The right area rug will actually enhance the colours that are in your room and give everything a whole new look. If you have a dark floor, add a light-coloured rug. If you have a light floor, warm it up with a dark rug.

Don't be afraid of interesting patterns or colours! Take inspiration from your existing furniture and walls, and choose a unique pattern or texture for your rug to give your space a whole new look. We love our new rugs from Bricotex, especially the geometric (this rug, Scandinavian 'Black/White' is gorgeous, available for £47.85 here), vintage-oriental (Cambodia Suong 'Silver' is one of our favourites, available for £94.83 here), and shaggy rugs, which are so trendy right now! You can also add the same rug to your living room and kitchen, or master bedroom and master bathroom. This adds flow to your home without breaking up rooms.


Another way to add a new look to your space is by adding wallpaper. Unlike in the past, wallpaper doesn't need to cover all four walls of your room. Add it to one of your walls to give a pop of colour to a room. The key with funky wallpaper is to keep it simple, and don´t overwhelm your room with a wild pattern that covers all of your walls. We've been crazy about Rasch´s African Queen II (starting at £2.13/m, available here) collection lately, which is the perfect wallpaper to add dimension, style, and colour to rooms without looking too busy. We love using it as an accent piece for one wall, like behind a bed, couch or fireplace.

Giving your home a new style doesn't have to break the bank or be extremely difficult, either. Set aside a weekend to reorganize and put together your new room. Adding a new area rug or some new wallpaper is an easy way to give your room a touch of modern style. We're so excited about our new selection of area rugs at BRICOFLOR! There's a colour and style to suit any space, and we're dedicated to bringing you the best prices online.
