29 Chic Home Buys To Upgrade Your Space – For £29 Or Less

·3-min read

After what feels like an eternity spent indoors, your home is probably aching for a complete refresh. Shifting the vibe from 'stuck inside to save lives' to 'this is my cosy nest that I'm choosing to spend more time in' feels pertinent, given many of us are emerging from the pandemic with a flexible or fully remote work arrangement. Having a living space that truly feels like a home – filled with things that spark joy and reflect your personality – is now more important than ever.

Achieving this upgrade does not mean you have to spend a fortune. We have curated 29 pieces of home decor that will instantly make your home feel more polished – all with a price tag of less than £29. From colourful glassware to stylish bedding to smart storage solutions, read on to discover our latest and greatest interior finds on a budget.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by us. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy or click on something we link to on our site, we may earn a commission.
