Revamping your home doesn’t always need to be a major project and you don’t always have to spend a king’s ransom to do it. Whether you’re tight on time or worried about your budget, I’ve compiled a list of affordable home makeover ideas that can be done on any schedule and with any budget bracket. It’s time to stop stalling on redesigning your home and read on. Spruce up your home decor with these easy and budget-friendly decorating tips:
You can dedicate a wall section or space for this. Ensure you pick a theme: weddings, family, birthday parties pictures and put them in identical or stylish frames that complement each other. Hang in a tight grid or a long line. Bottom line, Be creative!
2. A Mirror
Tight spaces tend to expand and rooms seem a lot roomier when you prop up a large mirror at least three-fourths as tall as the wall. You can go for really stylish mirrors to beautify the house.
3. Pump Up the Color
Painting a room is a great way to instantly makeover a room without spending much. Colors are the classic makeover potion. If you don’t want to repaint a whole room, you can just paint one wall in a focal color or paint a contrasting but complementing color for your gallery space. You can also paint the insides of bookshelves in a different color or paint your ceiling a lighter version of the wall color. You can perk up a dull room with vibrant colors like green or by just simply adding a colorful rug. For those who don’t fancy vibrant colors, you can intensify the cozy factor in your home by painting your walls a dark and dramatic color, anything from charcoal grey to chocolate brown to even black.
4. Re-arrange your furniture
For an instant refresh, you can rearrange your apartment’s furniture placement. Chairs should be set up in ways for easy conversation. Don’t be afraid to think beyond the living room either. That armchair in your living room might look even better in your bedroom. Lend a bright new look to your home by displaying eye-catching accessories. Uplift your sofa with colorful throw pillows.
Think of bookshelves as fanciful art displays that should be carefully curated. You can arrange your paperbacks by color and also wrap worn out book covers in pretty paper or with old newspapers. Bookshelves can be used to showcase a few art pieces, vases, ornaments or action figures.
Sometimes organizing your apartment might just be what you need. De-cluttering every area in your apartment can have the same impact as redecorating it. Use wooden baskets and decorative bowls to hide as much clutter as you can.
7. Update your kitchen and bathroom
Making a few slight changes to your kitchen and bathroom would go a long way in redesigning your home. Begin by painting your kitchen walls and cabinets if they’re looking worn out. Fix or replace old door knobs and make the kitchen space clean. You can give yourself time to update other fixtures too, such as the faucets.
8. Beautify the bedroom
Take your bedroom from boring to beautiful with a few creative upgrades. A mirror, a bedside lamp, beautiful bedspreads, and pillow cases, nice flowy curtains would go a long way in redesigning your bedroom.
Begin with the big overhead lights in your home. Do you love them? Are they modern? Replace old overhead lightening with beautiful chandeliers to further accentuate your home.
Small details make all the difference. Scented candles, beautiful coasters, colorful throw pillows, interesting desk frames, a small but exquisite crystal vase filled with fresh flowers, lamps for the side tables. Shelves can also be used to display collection. However, remember not to go overboard with your accesories.
