How to Redecorate Your Place on a Budget

Redecorating can be a great way to express yourself and make your place feel more like home! And, good news: It can be done on a budget! If you’re looking to redecorate your space without dropping major cash, here are a few easy tips!

The Basics

Something as simple as painting a room’s walls (or even a single accent wall) can transform a space and bring it to life. Similarly, you can also incorporate some new hardware into a piece of furniture without investing too much time or money. Accessories like throw blankets, pillows, or rugs can be another great way to easily give your space a new look.

Open Shelving

One of the best ways to take advantage of your space and add character is by creating open shelving. IKEA has some great shelving systems that are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.

A great way to make your space seem larger is by adding mirrors. Of course, large decorative mirrors can cost you a pretty penny, but there are a few ways to make your mirror a statement piece without breaking the bank. For example, you can buy small mirrors from the dollar store, remove the glass, spray-paint the frames, and glue them to a large piece of plyboard. Voila! You have the same look for a fraction of the price. Check out this Dollar Tree Window Pane Mirror by Blooming DIYer for inspiration for this project!

Spruce up your kitchen or bathroom by adding a new backsplash. You could do this by painting an existing backsplash or using vinyl stick-on backsplash or peel-and-stick tiles. Just be sure to measure how much you will need to cover the area before ordering.
