Nothing beats redoing a room and feeling like you are walking into a brand new space. And for a look that is easy on your wallet, there are quick décor ideas that you can use for decorating on a budget that doesn’t skimp on style.
Freshen up walls with paint for home
Walls are one of the first visual elements our eyes encounter in a living space. This makes it the easiest and quickest way to change the look of the room. In fact, even repainting just the trims can have a big impact. You can either create an accent wall using textured paint and stencils or opt for a painted ceiling to make the room look bigger. You can also use wooden paint or paint your floors for a makeover that’s in your budget.
Even photocopied art looks sophisticated when you use quirky frames. You can even create interesting artwork using pieces of patterned fabric or wallpaper, completed jigsaw puzzles and pictures cut out from a magazine.
Shop at flea markets
You can find great unique pieces at a flea market, at a bargain price. While some are perfect on its own, other pieces can be improvised using a coat of paint.
Plants are beneficial to the home décor in so many ways, but for the purpose of this style guide, they are also a super cheap decorating element. Plants can fill awkward spaces and infuse a space with natural energy. Plants are a budget-conscious decorator’s best friend!
Create an atmosphere
Adding candles can instantly create a feeling of cosiness. This can also be achieved by simply switching your white lights and bulbs to a soothing yellow. Bring in flowers or bowls of fruit to help set a mood, convey a sense of style and add scent.
Re-arrange and re-organise
If you want to transform your room without spending any money, start by getting rid of the clutter and reorganising the furniture. Keep your surfaces neat and clean and display some art. Style your bookshelves by arranging books by colour coding them and arranging art, boxes and knick-knacks.
