If you want to refresh the home decor in a space in your home but you don’t want to spend a lot of money doing so, we have put together a list of five great ideas to help you get started. Choose one or choose a combination of them to change up the look of your bedroom, living room, bathroom, and more.
One of the most affordable ideas for changing up a space is to swap your pillows in your bedroom or living room. Add a new texture, add a new color, or add a fun saying with a new accent pillow. Pro tip: Decorative pillow covers are even more affordable, yet just as stylish.
Another great idea is to create a DIY art piece with materials you already have in your home or with very inexpensive items at your local thrift store or dollar store. There are so many options and step-by-step instructions on various blogs if you need inspiration. If your children are artistically inclined, have them paint on a canvas for you.
Our next suggestion is to paint an accent wall. For just the cost of a gallon of paint and a few drop cloths and brushes, you can make a stark change to the look of your room. Or, for a less dramatic change, paint a door instead. You can have this task complete in a single day.
Recycle and reuse. If you have an old piece of furniture that’s starting to look worn and shoddy, sand it down, give it a fresh stain or coat of paint and decorate the top with a new vase and fresh flowers. This will cost more physical energy than money.
Speaking of flowers, fresh plants are our fifth suggestion to refresh your home decor in a budget-friendly way. Every room can benefit from a fresh green plant. Succulents are the easiest to maintain for anyone who lacks a green thumb. Your local nursery will have great options at affordable prices.
There are so many additional ways you can change a room’s home decor on a budget. These ones listed above are probably the easiest, but we’d love to hear from you as well. What are your favorite budget-friendly home decorating ideas? Tell us in the comments section!
