Décor Tips On a Small Budget
Decorating your home doesn’t need to put you in debt, and if you are smart, you can make a little go a long way. These décor tips are ideal for anyone who doesn’t have a lot to spend, but still wants to make their home look like it’s magazine-worthy!
Splash on Scatters
If you want to make any room look a little more inviting, splash out on a few scatter cushions. They can transform your sofa and any chairs completely, and if you use rich colours and luxurious fabric, they’ll add a touch of class that you can’t put a price tag on.
Go Mad with Mirrors
Mirrors are cheap, and even when framed they don’t have to break the bank. The biggest advantage of them however, is that they make a room look bigger, and they are a feature all on their own. With a bit of clever placement you can make your space appear larger and you can create interest with ease.
Go Potty for Plants
Pot plants are a cheap and cheerful way of livening up your space, and they make for great décor too. Ferns, delicious monsters, palms and other similar plants look wonderful in pots and can liven up any room. If you don’t have any pictures to hang on the walls you can always have a few hanging plants, or even air plants that create their own living art.
Throw a Rug On It
If your floors are looking a little bare, a rug will liven things up no end. You don’t need to use all your sports betting NZ winnings and go out and buy a Persian carpet, you can easily find cheaper rugs that look just as good. A luxurious shag rug adds a feeling of elegance; especially in winter, and a sisal or coir mat is a great choice for any high traffic area that needs a bit of tarting up.
Even if you are not a whizz with a camera, the photo apps we have access to can help us create amazing artwork. Print some of your best snaps off and hang them around your home, or create a photo string – a line of twine with little pegs that you can clip Instagram style photos to in a row.
Lighting can make a huge difference in a room, and if you have dim lights or any bulbs out, now is the time to change them! Sometimes, just swapping what was a rather dim light for a much brighter one makes a world of difference, and changes the look and feel of a room completely.
It’s a Wrap
If your couch is looking little worse for wear, or your easy chair is a little too easy on fabric these days, then throws are your new best friend. You don’t have to spend a fortune on upholstery; you can simply invest in a few throws and drape them over your sofa or chairs in an artful way.
