Renovating a house on a budget can be challenging, but it's not impossible. With the help of Lighting Illusions, you can create a beautiful home without overspending. Here are some of our top tips to help you renovate your house without breaking the bank:

Plan ahead: 

Before starting any renovation project, it's important to make a plan. Determine which rooms or areas of the house need the most attention and prioritise accordingly, we recommend you make a list of the renovations you want to undertake and estimate the costs of materials and labour. At Lighting Illusions, our knowledgeable specialists are here to simplify the planning process. Head into your nearest Lighting Illusions store to speak to one of our friendly staff about which lighting, heating and cooling products will be best for your new home.

Set a budget:

Once you have a plan, set a budget. Determine how much you can afford to spend on each renovation project and stick to it and don't forget to include a buffer for unexpected expenses.


Doing the renovations yourself can save you a lot of money on labour costs, and can be super fun too. However, be realistic about your skills and abilities - don't take on a project that is beyond your capabilities as it may end up costing you more in the long run.

Shop around: 

Don't buy the first materials or supplies you see, it's important to shop around for the best deals and discounts. Look for sales, clearance items, and secondhand items that are still in good condition. Check out our website or visit one of our Lighting Illusions stores to view our competitive pricing on lighting and cooling solutions!


Look for ways to repurpose items you already have. For example, an old dresser can be repurposed as a bathroom vanity or a kitchen island!


A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a room. Paint is an inexpensive way to update the look of a room and can be done easily by most homeowners.

Focus on small details:
Sometimes, it's the small details that can make a big difference. For example, updating light fixtures from Lighting Illusions or replacing cabinet hardware can give a room a new look without spending a lot of money. Check out our stunning lighting range here for inspiration.
