The internet has a harvest field for an abundance of ideas if you’re looking for design strategies, tips for home decorating, and tasteful decor shopping secrets today. But what I want to do instead, is to share tips that’ll help you transform your home without having to spend up money you could have saved for a rainy day.
Call me an optimist, but I believe just about anyone can have a stylish, inviting home without spending a thousand bucks. The first step, of course, is to clean up and organize your home as best as you can.
After you’ve done that, you’re ready to redecorate your home on pennies without scanting on style.
Breathe Life into Your Walls
A lick of paint is a quick, easy and thrifty way to give your home an instant facelift. You have several options, from making a statement with bright colors, or going all out to feature a more intense shade, to create more artistic feature patterns with a glut of colors, you have the power to get your home a striking look that oozes glamour.
Customize Your Stuff
Eye-catching as custom curtains or reupholstered sofas may seem, they’re not for you if you’re on a tight budget. Instead, consider customizing most of the stuff you already own. Add some brown polka dots to plain white or cream curtain panels. Edge a simple black table in gold. Use curling ribbon at corners of walls, or wallpaper the exterior of a bookshelf. Other simple but effective hacks like making colored paper design boxes to be placed strategically at unobtrusive spots can also help make your rooms more enticing.
Flowers are Lovely
You can bring some feeling of freshness into your living room by purchasing a simple vase of grocery store flowers. Nowadays, even DIY faux flowers made of curling ribbon or those plastic ones from the craft store can be as convincing as the natural ones. If your home feels a little dull, flowers can amp up the demeanor of your living room.
You might not know this yet, but one of the reasons your home is looking dull look dull is because too little natural light enters your home. Ever wondered why everything suddenly seems better when you step outside? Yep!
The first step is to declutter, get rid of everything that’s taking up unnecessary space. Then consider replacing your curtains with net curtains as these won’t deny so much light from coming in. One trick is also to buy multiple fashionable mirrors that can be scattered around walls. To help bounce natural light around and give a perception the room is brighter than it is.
Redecorating could cost you thousands, and that’s fine, but you don’t have that luxury, you could spend a few hundred dollars on a few things to bring life into your home yourself. DIYs might take a bit of your time, but following these simple tips will make a difference for a fraction of the cost.
