Occasionally, it feels refreshing to change up your home décor and breathe new life into your various rooms. But the thought of spending a lot to switch out the furniture can deter you from scratching that itch. Updating your home doesn’t have to come at a high price, though. Here’s how to revamp your home on a budget.
Bring in Plants
Particularly in the scarcity of cold, grey winters, you may be lacking some green in your daily life. Or if you live in a more southerly region, you may want to bring a touch of nature to your barren interior. Either way, plants can uplift your home and cut through any room’s unintentional severity. The best part is, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a few pretty additions that will fit in smoothly with their surroundings. Visit your local home and garden store and peruse their selections. You might be surprised to find a plant that fits more perfectly into your style than you could have imagined.
A room’s dominating colors can vastly shift the mood there. Fortunately, paint is affordable. You can choose to paint all the walls in a room for a complete transformation or just one wall to create an accent effect. If you have some skirting or wood cabinets that look a bit shabby, you can paint those to revive them.
Follow Design Principles
By thinking about design rules that help guide how you decorate a room, you can save by being selective about what you buy. Sometimes, all your room needs is a rearrangement of furniture to give it a satisfying overhaul. For instance, you might move the sofa from its position on one wall to another to change the perspective with which you view the room when lounging. You could also use decorating tricks for your bedroom to make the area around the bed pleasingly symmetrical, again without necessarily needing to purchase anything new. If you do decide to buy a new piece, you can get one that will have a lot of impact, such as an attractively patterned rug.
