3 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Space

Each new season and each new year bring along with them a plethora of new styles and trends, especially when it comes to interior decorating. But that doesn’t mean you have to toss, donate, or sell everything you have in order to buy everything new to suit them. There are quick, easy, and affordable ways to upgrade your space and change the entire look without such drastic measures.


  1. Hang Prints. One of the easiest ways to enhance a room or to change up the overall style is to introduce art prints, or change your existing ones. Whether you wish to design them yourself, find some free printables online, or purchase some pre-loved images off Gumtree, you’ll feel like you have a whole new space once you pair them with modern frames.
  2. Add Plants. Bright pops of green from the leaves of indoor plants are the perfect way to add some natural colour to your space. Not only will they help cleanse the air around you, but they instantly make your space look more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
  3. Refurbish Furniture. If you are not the best at DIY, a simple Google search will bring up a load of ideas with easy how-to guides. Finding old pieces on Gumtree to refurbish, or refurbishing an existing piece instead of tossing it is another great way to add life to your space, as well as a whole new look and feel.


Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find everything you need to upgrade your space close to home.
