House Decorating Tips for a Budget


1) Paint

One coat of paint can transform a space. Painting will not only make a space feel new, but it will also set a new tone. Paint is very affordable to purchase. You don’t need to spend a lot to get a high-end paint job. Paint a single accent wall, or your front door if you are on a tight budget.

2) Pillows

This is my favorite way of transforming a space. Many people will argue that pillows are expensive, but they haven’t done enough research. Although throw pillows purchased from Anthropoloie will be more expensive, I can tell you that the $5 Walmart pillow is just as comfortable. Pillow covers can be purchased for as low as $2-$10. Pillows offer the perfect mix of fashion and functionality.

3) Light up Jugs & Masons

This is an adorable and simple way to brighten up a space. You will find everything you need, including a string light and a clear glass jar or jug. The thrift store is my favorite place to buy jars and jugs. You will most likely find one more unique. To achieve this look, simply put string lights, floss, or Christmas in a jar and let it glow. This is an inexpensive and great way to brighten up an area.

4) Hang Plates

Although it sounds complicated, this is so charming if done right. All you need to do is gather a few plates in different sizes and shapes, and then hang them up on the wall. You only need to ensure that every plate compliments the other. These plates can be hung above a mantel or on an empty wall. This look can transform any room, especially if you find plates that are unique and inexpensive.

5) Make a Wall Collage

It’s possible to do this in many different ways and at a very low cost. There are many free printables available online and you can find unique frames at thrift stores. You can add photos of family and friends to your wall collage, or just random prints. A wall collage has no guidelines, which is the best thing about it. You can arrange them in a random way or make them meaningful and well-organized.

You don’t have to re-purpose items you already own, but there are many easy and affordable ways to decorate your home. These are just a few ways that I love to decorate, but there are many other ways. There are many places to search for cheap home decor items. You just have to look at the right places. One of my favorite places to find brand new home decor at a low cost is [] check them out to either splurge a little or get some inspiration.
