Do you feel like making a few changes to your décor this autumn? These ideas are perfect for helping you complete a quick autumn inspired makeover. From investing in new wingback chairs to giving your home a splash of paint, you can give your home a whole new look.
There is a definite chill in the air and that means retreating indoors. Before the gloom of winter sets in, add colour and cosiness with these five mini makeover ideas – and even better, they come with a small price tag, so you can do them all!
Sometimes, there is nothing for it but to make the mini-makeover something that hangs around longer than the few months of winter.
New furniture is a great move at this time of year because this is the season you will spend lounging on sofas and wingback chairs indoors. When summer hits, you’ll be lounging on your outdoor sofa.

BUDGET: you can spend anything from £10 to £20 or much, much more on cushions.
The thing about autumn that we love are the colours. No matter where you live, watching the green leaves turn to golden shades of orange and yellow or crimson red is a delight. And is there anything better than walking along a pavement to have swirls of golden leaves at your feet?
Chillier it may be but by adding these colours to your home, you add a sense of warmth that is truly appealing.
BUDGET: a tin of paint cost £15 to £20, with a basic roller being a few pounds as is a paintbrush and tray kit.
This idea has a moveable price point because it comes down to what you want to pay. But as well as rolling yourself up in a fluffy throw with cushions all around you, you need to keep your feet cosy and warm too.
And so off you go, shopping for a rug. There are all kinds of rugs from the deep fluffy ones that work great by the side of the bed to the large expanse of rug for the living room.
Here are our hints for making a rug work;
BUDGET: £50 upwards, although a decent rug will be around the £120 to £150 mark.
