It’s no secret that times are a bit tight financially for a lot of people and so for many of us redecorating our homes is not really a viable option. That doesn’t have to be the case though as there are unique ways to give your home a new lease of life whilst looking after the pennies. So if you are having to tighten your belt a bit but still want to redecorate your home then here are some unique home decoration ideas on a budget.
#1: Get Your Lighting Right
You may be surprised at just how much difference the right lighting can make to your home. It can completely change the atmosphere and ambiance of a room. You can get cheap lights or lamps and reposition them in the room to light up areas that were previously in the shadows or add a lightning fixture to the roof to give the room a new perspective. You don’t even need to buy new lamps as you could instead simply replace the lamp shades and reposition them to give the room a new look for less.
#2: Add Cushions & Throws
If you can’t afford a new sofa then don’t give up hope on redecorating your living room. A sofa can be reinvigorated by the addition of some new cushions or a throw which can give it a whole new colour and style. When compared to the price of a new sofa this is a great way to redesign your living room for minimal expenditure.
#3: A Lick Of Paint Can Do Wonders
Adding a new colour to a room can completely transform it and you don’t have to fork out for wallpaper and hire someone to put it up for you. Instead you can simply buy some paint and rollers and paint it yourself. It’s hard to beat the feeling of creating something yourself and afterwards you’ll have a brand new looking room to enjoy. You can do this for every room and give the entire house a fresh feel.
#4: Mirrors Can Add Illusion
Mirrors are a great tool for adding the illusion of extra space to a room. If you are feeling a little boxed in by your limited space then they can really help. They can also add extra light to a room which illuminates previously unlit corners which once again creates more space.
#5: Use Frames To Add Personality
If your rooms are looking a bit drab and uninspired then adding new picture frames is a great way to add some personality to them. Wall art can be pretty expensive but it doesn’t have to be for you as you can buy or reuse frames and simply change the pictures in them any time you fancy a new look. You can add your own photos or create some art yourself to put in your frames, the choice is yours.
#6: Be Creative With Stencils
Stencils are great for adding your own unique style to walls, doors and even the floor. With stencils you can add high quality designs to almost any surface quickly, easily and best of all cheaply.
There are lots of ways that you can redecorate your home without breaking the bank, you just have to think outside the box.
