Decorating Tips on a Budget

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.

Creating homes together

Our passion for #CreatingHomesTogether goes beyond décor. The warm and inviting spaces you build are lovingly shared with your friends and family, creating places of comfort, connection, and relaxation. Like many of you, our homes are not complete without our cherished animal companions, but not all animals have a place to call home.

To realize our dream of #CreatingHomesTogether wherever possible, we proudly collaborate with a number of non-profit shelters and adoption centers who are working to provide loving homes for longing animals.
