Five under £50: easy and affordable home updates

You don’t have to splash out to give your home a spring twist – prepare for the new season with these key pieces.

All this chilly weather is making us appreciate simple pleasures where we can – like returning to an inviting home after a cold, grey day.

If you want something to really look forward to – aside from a hot cup of tea – these five key pieces from Sainsbury’s are just what you need. For less than £50, you could give a new lease of life to any room, especially with their uplifting spring theme.

Butterfly prints, exotic fragrance and rich colour are perfect for bringing in the new season: we feel more optimistic just looking at them. And at a fraction of the cost of a full room revamp, the price is putting a spring in our step too…

These pieces are available for a limited time in over 300 stores across the country – find your nearest stockist here.
