25th May 2020
Building a garden room is one thing, decorating the inside is quite another. This is your space to design and get creative with but if you have a limited budget how can you make it as good as you have dreamt about? You can still achieve that look you just need to look for a different path to take.
Here are our 5 ways to style out your garden room on a budget!
Buying secondhand used to be looked down upon, but today, this is an extremely savvy way of shopping and you can get hold of almost everything you’ll ever need via charity shops, eBay, selling sites and so on. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure and even though you may have to be a little patient with your searches, it will most definitely pay off. Not only can you usually find exactly what you need, you will save yourself a lot of money in the long run too.
Whether you have old furniture lying around or you buy some cheap secondhand, you can always give it a new lease of life by upcycling. Most people find that a lick of paint is all that is needed especially if you choose a good quality chalk paint that requires zero prep and gives amazing results. If you do need to sand, varnish or stain to obtain your desired style, it is far more rewarding doing it this way than buying brand new.
Visit a Junkyard
Repurposing old junk is a great way of creating a unique piece for your garden room as well as saving money and reducing waste. It’s a win-win! You can get plenty of ideas over on Pinterest and how-to’s on YouTube so do a bit of research before you set out, have it clear in your mind what pieces you’d like to make and what could be useful to you and then head for your nearest junkyard to see what they have to offer you. Having items in your room that cannot be bought on the high street gives it more of the wow factor and each time you look at it you will be reminded of the hard work you put into creating your own style.
Instead of spending out a fortune on bespoke art pieces, why not make your own for your garden room? After all, you know what design and style you love so who better than to bring that altogether onto paper or canvas? You don’t have to be an artist to get creative, you just have to have an idea of what you would like to see up on your walls. If you wanted a more personal touch, you could even get your children to paint their own masterpieces for you.
Why buy new when you could swap your unwanted furniture for somebody else’s? Why not ask friends and family if they fancy doing a big furniture swap? You could post in an online group, take a look at what would be handy for your garden room and they could see what would be a good swap for them. This is a great way of keeping items in circulation, spending no money and having fun by doing so.
These 5 tips should give you some fantastic ideas on how to begin to style out your garden room on a budget and with a bit of thinking outside of the box, you should end up with an outdoor space you will love.
