Everyone wants to have a new and improved environment to come home to, but what if you don’t have much money? What if you’re on a budget that only allows for a little wiggle room every month? Check out these 3 solutions to decorate your home on a budget, and add a fresh feel to your home.
1.) Paint: Without a doubt, paint is economical. For as little as $10.00 per paint can, and a paint roller, you can transform any space. Colors range from neutrals to bright and bold. Change the mood of your space and drive how your family feels in your home.. color is amazing! Don’t like the color after you paint? Wake up tomorrow, and change it… you can do that with paint!
2.) Decor: In each room of your home, there is decor that can be replaced for dollars a week! Bedrooms: Bed linen, pillows, throw blankets, and area rugs can take a space from old to new, instantly. Bathrooms: Towels, shower curtains, and sink accessories can add instant color, and hotel quality to this everyday space! Kitchen: Have an area to display beautiful pots and pans? Consider buying a bakers rack, or pot rack to display to add personality to your space. Decorative kitchen linen, area rugs, and special place settings can revive a dull kitchen.
3.)Lighting: Believe it or not, light can make your home feel like a shack or a palace! For a few dollars to pay for a different style light bulb, to a one time splurge – lamp, sconce, or lighting fixture, the ambiance can change in an instant. Consider bringing in more natural light to your space through windows, removing heavy drapery and replacing with sheer fabrics. Natural light makes us feel better, and look better… try it!
