If you are looking to give you home a new sense of style but you don’t want to shell out thousands to do so then this is a post for you. The truth is that there are so many small tweaks and detail changes which you can make in the home that will give rooms and spaces a new lease of life, which aren’t going to cost you the Earth. The key to great home decor is not money, but a sense of style, personality and the boldness to give things a try. Here are some tips on what you could do to give your home a cheap new look.
Sometimes we can be guilty of blocking the natural light which comes into our homes and to be honest it is a real waste. Instead of covering up those windows with curtains and blinds, open up the window spaces where you can in order to allow that light to flood in. If you have a frosted glass window where it isn’t needed then buy a clear pane so that you can let nature brighten your home up.
Pallets can be a low cost and interesting solution to tables and even beds, and they will give that super cool, industrial warehouse look which many are aiming for. Naturally you’ll have to ensure that the pallets are sanded down and varnished so that they look intentional, but you can pick the pallets themselves up for a very low cost.
A feature wall is a cool and low cost option which you could use in bedrooms or living areas around the home. Instead of investing in wallpaper for all four walls, pick a prominent wall and simply adorn that wall with paper, and then just paint the other three in a different color. Here you can play with light and dark which will add a feeling of space to your room, plus style and you can save a bundle in the process.
Upcycling is an eco-friendly way of taking old things such as chairs, and giving them a new lease of life. Not only will this prove to be a great project for you to work on, it can reduce waste and give your home some real character and individuality. Cheap, eco-friendly and very chic, what more could you ask for?
Adding plants and items of nature that you find are a great way for you to freshen up the home, without spending very much money. Grabbing some driftwood from the beach, drying out branches with berries attached and even taking some dried out flowers and pressing them into a frame can look gorgeous inside the home and they will give a new look to rooms and spaces. This is low cost and will transform areas of your home for the better.
As you can see, you don’t have to spend bug in order to make significant changes in your home.
