Home Decor Ideas that Won’t Break the Bank

With the arrival of spring comes the urge to freshen and revitalize your home decor. If you’re worried that your design dreams are larger than your bank account can handle, think again. These tips will help you refresh your home’s interior without breaking the bank in the process!

Brighten Up

One of the most cost-effective ways to freshen your space is with a coat of paint. Not only is a new wall color one of the dramatic ways to update a room’s look, it’s also one of the least expensive! So go ahead and choose that gorgeous shade you’ve been dreaming of; after all, if you don’t like it, you can always paint over it.

Pretty Patterns

Wallpaper is a fun way to add visual interest to a room, but covering entire walls is a time-intensive — and sometimes expensive — task. Instead, save a few bucks and a few hours by covering your bookcase backings instead. It’ll add a subtle splash of color and texture to the room without being overwhelming.

Throw Pillows

Tired of that old couch but can’t afford to invest in new furniture? Spruce it up with some throw pillows! Choose two or three complementary shades and patterns to mix up the look. Add a comfy throw for a fresh new look.

Get Thrifty

Searching for those perfect accent pieces that give your home that finished look? Spend an afternoon browsing at your local thrift shops and hitting neighborhood garage sales. You’re bound to find more unique, interesting items than you know what to do with for a reasonable price. And, if you’re a bit crafty, you can do a little DIY to create your very own works of art!
