Low cost ways of redecorating a semi-detached house

My family and I are trying to save as much money as we can at the moment. What are some low-cost or no cost ways that we can redecorate our home? We have a two storey semi-detached house.

"There are no no cost ways unfortunately.
Your always going to have to pay the labour of a decorator.
Plus i would say magnolia the house threw out is probably the cheapest way but you would still be looking 1000 upwards unfortunately.
Many thanks"

"If the walls are in decent condition then it would be cheaper to paint rather than paper. And paint is fairly cheap depending on brand but you can easily paint a house for a couple of hundred pounds if you're prepared to do the work yourself"

"Overlooking can be a big issue for the semi-detached home, and adding glazing to the side elevations of a new extension may simply not be an option (particularly if one wall abuts the boundary). Maximising glazing to the rear wall, paired with rooflights, lanterns and other forms of glazing to the roof are potential solutions."

"Stick to basic white walls and ceiling’s. You can get the paint fairly cheap and with white you can’t go wrong"

"Re painting walls makes a massive difference.
You can get brilliant white magnolia for ceiling and walls. I'd recommend painting everywhere with this paint as it's a cheap option and also opens up your living space to make it seem a lot bigger than before.

Flooring - lino is the cheapest good quality flooring. It comes In a wide range of designs from, wood flooring to type effect

If you let me know what sort of things you want to do to each room I can recommend different brands of materials that will help you save costs"
