If you’re looking to refresh your home décor, now’s a great time to spruce up your living space. No big budget to work with? Don’t give up on your decorating dreams just yet! With a little imagination and creativity, you can give your home a whole new look without breaking the bank.
If you need something to complete your project, most home decorating items can be shipped right to your doorstep.
Here’s your guide to home décor on a dime:
Use lighting to your advantage
You can give your home a new feel simply by adding light fixtures. It’s an inexpensive way to turn a dark, drab room into a bright, welcoming space. Swap out old lamps with modern ones, update dingy lampshades with fresh white ones, and replace outdated light fixtures with sleek, modern ones. Switching up your lightbulb shades can work little miracles too!
Don’t forget the ceiling
They say that the ceiling is the “fifth wall” of your home. Take advantage of this often-overlooked wall by adding beams, giving it a new coat of paint in a fresh colour, or getting cozy with a draped ceiling. When it comes to sprucing up your fifth wall, the sky (or ceiling!) is the limit!
Update old furniture
Just like you updated your outdated lighting, you can give your old furniture a second life with only a little bit of work. Adding new hardware, like knobs and hinges, or giving worn-out furniture a fresh coat of paint can do wonders to your space without having to spend a fortune.
What’s the most cost-effective, yet impactful way to make over a dull space? With a classic coat of fresh paint, of course! For an even more budget-friendly way of revamping your living space, paint just 1 accent wall in a vibrant, high-contrast colour or add texture and depth by using shapes, like wide coloured stripes.
Dress up your window coverings
To give the entire floor a makeover-on-a-budget, replace your worn-out, dated window coverings, and get brand new curtain rods. For an even more cost-effective alternative, stylish shower curtains can be used in place of regular curtains in a pinch—just make sure that they’re the right fit.
Try DIY decals
In the past few years, wall decals have become a popular trend in home décor, but trying out this trend can cost a pretty penny. Instead, unleash your creativity by making your own DIY decal by arranging photographs on your walls. Don’t be afraid to get creative—this is your chance to express yourself through your décor, so let your imagination soar!
Get fancy with frames
Stylish picture frames can turn an ordinary side table into an attention-grabbing focal point of any room. Choose vibrant, contemporary, or whimsical picture frames to add style to any room. Mix and match colours, textures and sizes for effect.
Use accent pillows
Take a dull sofa from bland to bold with colourful cushions. Choose bright, vibrant hues, floral patterns, or sophisticated fabrics to instantly energize a living room or bedroom.
Add some greenery
There’s never a wrong time to add some greenery to your home! If your tabletops, countertops, or side tables are in desperate need of some life, add a pop of natural greenery and vibrancy by decorating them with a few potted plants or herbs in colourful pots and planters. Don’t have a green thumb? No problem! Use fake plants, they’re just as pretty and require less maintenance.
