Decorating on a budget isn’t new, and the ideas out there are endless. We have compiled some easy, budget decorating ideas to help you improve your home. Minor updates really can make a big difference. Sometimes the easy solutions can have a high impact. So, try these easy ideas to transform every room in your home.
1) Add Color To Your Walls:
If your living room furniture or dining room set isn’t doing it for you, you don’t have the money for anything new you can always add a coat of paint.
Painting is one of the easiest—and least expensive—ways to transform your rooms. A fresh coat of paint can instantly transform any wall into a center of attraction while making a room feel refreshed, brighter, and lighter. By combining different colors, you can carve out the design you crave for a clever take on low-cost home decor.
2) Add Greenery With House Plants:
Adding a new plant adds life quite literally to any room you choose. You can try a smaller group of potted plants or maybe a big leafy plant to open up the room. Bonsai trees are always a good addition, and if you have a ceiling hook, you can add decorative plants without worrying over where they’ll go. Check out your local nursery to see what’s available.
What you’ll need:
- Hanging pots
- Ceiling hooks
3) Re-organize What You Have:
It costs nothing to reassess what your room already looks like
Why not move a few pieces around. A minimalist look that eliminates clutter and focuses on a few key focal points is a great way to introduce an interior design style to your home without breaking the bank.
This method also allows you to splurge on a few nicer home decor pieces because the room will focus on them. There won’t be a need for other home decor items.
It is a free option when it comes to home decor and one of my favorite home decorating ideas on a budget. Look around your home for pretty items that you love that will look great on a bookshelf or as a centerpiece.
Combine little knick-knacks you already own into groups as vignettes and display them all together. There are plenty of ways to use stuff you’ve already got around the house to redecorate, and it’s free!.
4) Choose Your Lighting Wisely:
The lighting can transform the mood of your scheme at little cost. Why not buy a fresh shade for your lamp? Try replacing mismatched table lamps with stylish matching ones. Place one on either side of your sofa or bed, and see how the room suddenly has a cohesive style.
5) Shop At Budget-Friendly Home Décor Stores:
If you are looking for some new interior design items, start at budget-friendly decor stores.
Check out T.J.Maxx, Target, Walmart, Etsy, and eBay. These are great places to find pieces that you can use as a focal point for a room or your interior design look as a whole.
If you’re in the market for a coffee table, lighting fixtures, or throw pillows, these are great things to pick up less expensively.
6) Make Some Magic With a Mirror:
Use mirrors to reflect light, make a room look larger, or double a pretty view. It is a quick and easy way to bring some drama into your living room without overspending.
You can put mirrors in any room you want. It’s a timeless decoration that goes with nearly anything. If there’s a spot on the wall, and you can’t find a good picture to put there, try a mirror out. As a bonus, the mirror will reflect light to make the room brighter. Thrift stores usually have a few good mirrors at a low price.
7) Create a Gallery Wall:
A trend that has truly stood the test of time, gallery walls are a great way to cheaply fill a blank wall and give a room much-needed personality. Use photos, record covers, prints – you could even frame fabric cut-offs or spare bits of wallpaper.
Tip: If you’re renting your property and hammering hundreds of holes into the wall isn’t an option, command hooks are a good solution, or go with a picture shelf for minimal wall damage.
8) Build Your Headboard Art:
Give your bedroom an instant update for less with an easy make. Cut pieces of MDF to size and upholster it in a unique fabric to make an eye-catching headboard – you could choose the same fabric for your curtains on scatter cushions.
