Home Decor on a Dime

Could your home use a refresh? Follow these low-cost home decorating tips to give your home a fashionable update without breaking the bank.

Home Decor on a Dime

Buying a house is the single biggest investment most people will ever make. You want your house to feel like, well, a home.  Here are eight ways to decorate your home on a budget!

Thrift Stores

Thrift stores can be one-stop shopping for low-cost home décor. Maybe you stumble across a comfy chair for your reading nook? Or find a torch lamp with an adorable lampshade for the corner for your room?  Add some much-need light while taking up barely any space. Maybe you will stumble across some throw pillows that will breathe life into your couch? Regardless, thrift stores are a gold mine a home décor bargain hunter!

Furniture Fun

Want a quick and easy change? Re-arrange your furniture! You get a whole new room without spending a dime!  All it takes is some creativity, a bit of time, and perhaps a few sore muscles the next day.

Bookcase Beautification

Satisfy the book hound in you by giving your books the casing they deserve.

If you want new ones, build them out of wooden fruit cases, old palettes, or other scrap wood. Or, spruce up your old ones by wallpapering the interior.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Mirrors are a quick and versatile way to add brightness and style to any room in your house.

Add one to a wall in any room and watch as that room magically seems bigger. You can also bring your bathroom back to life by hanging a new mirror above the vanity or the sink.

New Paint

A little paint sure goes a long way.

Breathe some energy back into your walls or ceiling with a fresh coat of paint. After you paint the ceiling, follow that up by painting the floors. Good floor paint is a cheaper option than new tile.

Try painting your front door too. A shiny bright color will bring some happiness to the outside of the house.

Flower Power

What room will not benefit from freshly cut flowers? Vibrant colors and a fresh scent will fancy up any house. And, it’s the perfect excuse to buy a new vase or two.  At a discount, of course!

Money Rooms

Let’s play Jeopardy!

The answer: the kitchen and the bathroom

*Jeopardy chime – doo doo doooo!* “what two rooms sell a home?

Yes, there are plenty of ways to add some fashion to both rooms.

Now that is a décor daily double, for sure!

  • Bistro Table – this works well for smaller kitchens.
  • Canister Labels – say goodbye to wondering which one is sugar and which one is salt.
  • Paint the Cabinets – Avoid spending a small fortune on new cabinets when a fresh coat of paint and a little elbow grease will do the trick.
  • New Shower Curtain – you will feel cleaner before bathing!
  • Display Shelf – the perfect spot for toiletries or bathroom knickknacks.
  • Fancy Your Faucet – upgrade a boring bathroom faucet with a kitchen-size version instead.

Closet Conversion

Convert a closet into an arts and crafts room. You will have a fun “you” spot while creatively adding another room to the house. Win-win!

Home improvements do not always involve construction. Small changes to your home décor can give it that brand-new feeling. Plus, you can save money thanks to those home decorating ideas on a budget.
