Decorating your home can be an overwhelming, stressful, and expensive process.
Here’s a few tips for decorating your home on a budget:
Multipurpose furniture is the perfect option to save space and money. Furniture with many functions allows you to utilize your space efficiently, while also getting more for your dollar. For example, investing in an ottoman for your living space can serve as a chair or a coffee table while doubling as storage. In addition, buying a couch that pulls out into a bed is another multipurpose furniture option. Consider versatile furniture to conserve space and money.
Decorating your living space with different art pieces can be extremely expensive. The new trend taking over home decorating is using printable art for your plain walls. There are a variety of websites that offer beautiful prints to download and print for free. After printing your favorite designs and patterns, place these prints in a frame and hang it on your wall. This inexpensive decorating approach allows you to decorate your walls without spending thousands of dollars on art.
Paint an Accent Wall
White or gray walls can be boring and painting all four walls can be pricey. Instead of spending money on paint for whole room, consider painting only one wall. Creating an accent wall in your room saves you money and adds a pop of color. Choose the paint color carefully and decide what color would compliment your furniture and theme. For example, if your furniture and decorations consist primarily of neutral colors a dark brown wall may be the perfect touch.
Fix Old Furniture
Before spending money on all new furniture and decorations, examine the furniture you already own. Outdated furniture can be rejuvenated with a little paint and refinishing. Before you throw away your twenty year old book case, consider its future potential.
DIY projects can be intimidating and seem impossible to complete, however not all all projects have to be difficult. For example, mason jars are a great and inexpensive decorating tactic. These jars are cheap and serve many purposes. Put a strand of lights inside the jar to create an innovative light source. Additionally, mason jars can also be used vases. Just paint the jars and add flowers to brighten up your home. DIY projects ideas are endless. Do some research and find the perfect project for you and your home!
