Is your home in need of some care and attention to get it looking at its best? If so, you may feel put off of redecorating it due to the money involved. Decorating projects can create a lot of disruption in the home and can lead to significant costs.
Living in a home that you feel needs updating can be frustrating, especially if the only thing stopping you from doing the work is the amount of money that you will need to spend. However, redecorating your home doesn’t have to be hugely expensive.
Instead, why not save money by working with what you already have and transforming it into something beautiful? Repurposing your items in this way and giving them a new lease of life is a far more rewarding way to transform your home.
Seeing the results of your hard work, and knowing that it was mainly created using items you already have is incredibly satisfying.
Change the Color Scheme
Repainting a room is the most cost-effective way to make a style statement.
Color has the power to change the whole feel of a room, so make sure that you choose the right one. To save even more money, you may decide to only paint one area of the room, so that you create a feature wall.
Creating a feature wall in a contrasting color will help make a focal point in the room for you to work the rest of your scheme around, and you will likely only need to buy one tin of paint to achieve this look.
Resurface Your Ceiling
Are you sick of looking at your popcorn ceiling?
If so, then it is time to cover it up once and for all. The cost involved in replastering may mean that you had resigned yourself to a life of looking at a popcorn ceiling. Applying Styrofoam ceiling tiles is the perfect alternative.
The tiles will not only look great, but will avoid the disruption of plastering, and you can paint them in your chosen color.
Give Your Furniture a Makeover
If the furniture that you once loved is now looking worn, you may be considering throwing it out and buying some new pieces.
Don’t do it!
Give your furniture a makeover and make it suit your new décor, it is surprising just how effective revamping old furniture is. Painting furniture a new color and then swapping the existing handles for new ones will make it look like an entirely new piece. To personalize it further, why not by some inexpensive decals or stencils to complete the look?
As well as repainting your furniture, you can also give decorative items such as wooden photo frames the same treatment. Painting picture frames offer a great way to add an extra pop of color to your room.
Decorating on a budget may feel like you are restricted in your options. However, working with items that you already have and looking for cost-effective solutions enables you to be more creative.
