As you look around your home, you realize that it’s time for some updating. The thing is, you’re on a bit of a budget. Here are a few tips that can help you decorate your home for less.
Paint Your Walls
One of the cheapest things you can do to redecorate your home is to give your walls a brand-new coat of paint. A fresh coat or a new color can instantly update a space. If you don’t want to paint the whole room, try an accent wall.
Shop for Deals
You can find some amazing décor at flea markets, second-hand stores, and yard sales. You can also look online for discount home goods.
Before you start worrying about things to buy, start by getting rid of the things you don’t use. Go room by room and gather up old, outdated items. If the items are still in decent condition and still usable, donate them to a local charity. Otherwise, throw them away. There’s no need to hold onto anything you won’t use anymore, and cleaning out the clutter can help give your home a fresh slate.
Rearrange Your Furniture
Simply rearranging your furniture can change the look and feel of a room. You can make a small living room feel instantly larger just by moving a few things around.
To take it one step further, give your furniture a new look. Invest in some slipcovers for your couches and armchairs. Get some new covers for your throw pillows.
Change Out Some Hardware
Kitchen and bathroom renovations are some of the most expensive home updates. Fortunately, you don’t have to tear apart these rooms and replace everything to update them.
Instead of a complete renovation, change some hardware. Replace drawer pulls and cabinet door handles. You can find all different styles of pulls, knobs, and handles at home improvement stores for a couple of dollars per piece. Whether you’re going for a traditional, contemporary, or rustic look, you’re sure to find the hardware that best suits your tastes.
Pulls and handles aren’t the only things you can replace for cheap. To complete the look of your kitchen or bathroom, consider switching out faucets, towel racks, and other hardware.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to refresh your home. With just a few simple, inexpensive changes, you can breathe new life into it and transform it into a place you love.
