Many home owners think that they have to spend a ton of money to upgrade their décor. However, I have found that all that’s needed is creativity and thriftiness. So here are tips on how you can decorate your home on a budget.
Upgrade your shine.
Anything that gleams adds instant drama. So make sure you group glass bottles , picture and vases in the front window.
Dress up drawers.
Make an ordinary dresser the center of attention by covering the drawer fronts with brightly colored scrapbook paper. This is something that my interior decorators do.
One way I freshen up my home was by rearranging accessories from room to room. Mix high and low items to create points of interest.
Turn dishtowels into curtains.
If you want to save money on curtains for your kitchen, hang dishtowels instead and a clip with rings.
Switch up your sheets.
Don’t be afraid to combine sheet sets and pillows for an exciting new look. Combine different sheets sets and pillows for an exciting new look each time you change.
Mix textures the way designers do.
Mixing textures gives dull accessories designer flair. Glue spar buttons onto plain vases or candle holders for a more stylish surface and a pearly glow. You can attach to the surface with a low temperature glue gun.
Use personal photos to decorate walls.
On a budget and cant afford fancy artwork? Then display photographs of your garden flowers or plants. You can make the prints stand out.
Use every decorators’ secret weapon.
Fresh fruit is one of decorators’ favorite accessory because it’s the easiest way to add bold accents to a room. Oranges, lemons and limes are just few examples of fruits that work well has decorating pieces.
Decorate your home with tiered display.
Tiered displays take on a more importance than horizontal ones. So layer plates between sturdy cups to make your won. Use craft putty to keep the tiers topple-proof.
Upgrade your vases with ribbon.
I have found that the best way to turn plain vases into statements is by covering the surface with ribbon remnants. Cut a piece to fit around the container, hold in place with double stick tape. Also if you want to make your vases complement the colors in your room, just add food coloring to the water to create a rainbow of hues.
