**This competition is now closed**

With the gloomy weather and long nights slowly on the change, people across the UK will be hitting their local DIY stores to purchase supplies to give their homes and gardens a fresh new look for spring.

But if you’re on a tight budget, how can you get that new look you’ve been dreaming of without breaking the bank?

Well, that’s where Ocean can help. You can often find us blogging about how to keep your finances in tip-top shape, writing about homeowner loans and giving tips on how to improve your homes. But, with the launch of our new FourWalls blog, we’re going one step further.

We’ll show you how to get fresh new looks on a budget, and give you inspiration for all of your living spaces. We’re here to hold your hand and explain how you can get the latest season’s trends without having to spend a fortune.

To promote the launch of FourWalls, we’re looking for five families to give a room in their home a fresh new look on a budget of £100 - to show that it is possible to make a big difference without parting with loads of your hard-earned cash.

Fancy taking part?

Whether you have an unloved guest bedroom that needs some attention, a kitchen that needs bringing up to date with a splash of paint and some new accessories, or a room that could do with some colour injecting for spring, you could be exactly what we’re looking for.

If you’re up for a challenge and fancy getting involved, why not drop us an email to [email protected] with “These Four Walls” in the subject.

Spaces are limited, so participation in this challenge is on a first-come, first-served basis.

What happens next?

If you’re fortunate enough to be chosen, we’ll give you £100 to spend on the bits and pieces needed to complete your makeover.

Transformations should be shared with us in a blog post featuring a before and after image, alongside some information on how you went about your makeover and how you managed to achieve your new look on a strict £100 budget.  

The prize

Our judges will choose one lucky winner to receive a £100 Dunelm voucher to buy even more goodies for your stylish new room. And, the winner will also receive a glass trophy declaring them the champ of the Ocean “These Four Walls” competition!
