September 17, 2015
Despite what you might think, decorating your space can be done beautifully and on a budget and sometimes you can even get away with spending nothing at all. Simple small tweaks can be made that make a huge difference to your room. All it takes is a little determination and creativity. Here are 10 tips for easy decorating on a budget!
10. Never underestimate books
Books are the perfect accessories to any room. Display your cookbooks in the kitchen, spread them out on your coffee table or even create your own headboard with them for the bedroom like this one!
9. Wait for sales
A decorating project can take up to a year to complete. When designing your home never put pressure on yourself or a time limit. You want to make good quality decisions and invest in pieces you love. That way you can wait around for sales or special deals.
8. Go thrifting
Second hand pieces often just need a coat of paint and some new hardware. Ignite those creative juices and tackle some DIY projects and make sure to look for pieces with potential.
7. Plant it up!
Natural elements are often inexpensive. Opt for house plants that add a ton of texture and interest.
6. Get crafty
Don’t be afraid to do it yourself. Make your own bath mat, quilt, decor accessories, chalk board… the list goes on. Sometimes the home details you make yourself are the most beautiful!
5. The Polaroid garland
This has become a classic decoration piece. Beautifully arranged the Polaroid garland strings together memories in an absolutely exquisite way.
4. Splurge only on heavily used items
Pick items that you will want to keep long term and that you will love for years to come.

1. Move your furniture around
