Ever since getting my first place, I’ve been always been on the lookout for easy and affordable ways to decorate my home on a limited budget. While some of you may consider yourself fashionistas, I probably would fall more into the “decorista” category and used to have my own design scrapbooks and pinboards before Pinterest even existed.
Today with online shopping, finding discount home decor is easier than ever. The web is filled with tons of great ideas and inspiration and it’s easy to compare prices, read reviews and find exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re looking at decorating a new place on limited dollars, or just give a room or two a refresh in 2014, here are some tips.
Work Around Your Room’s Needs
Have large windows? Find some great discount curtains or a cool and funky window treatment that works with the window you have, and then work out from there with some shelves, framed prints, or other wall decor.
Start With a Signature Piece
Much like fashion, home decor for a room can focus around a single piece. Whether it’s as big as a floor rug, or a brightly painted accent wall or as small as a throw pillow, find one item you love to base your design around and then search for complementary pieces that all work together.
Have Fun With Online Deals & Flea Market Finds
Watch clearance sales from online retailers and your favorite in-store merchants for deep discounts on cute items that could become the perfect fit for your room. Don’t hesitate to search flea markets and garage sales for great finds either for items that are new to you. Your friends don’t have to know what you paid and with the additional money you save you can just stretch your budget even further.
Never seen somebody use a piece of furniture or fabric like that before? Then why can’t you? Don’t worry about what everyone else thinks and if it’s what you like–go with it! If you think that cool old dining room table would make an awesome bed frame with some creative rebuilding, then do it. Take charge and try it out!
Spring Clean and Paint Up
On a really modest budget? Never underestimated what a through cleaning, decluttering and a fresh coat of paint can do. Remove everything from the room, cleaning as you go and then paint. Rearrange the furniture for a fresh look and only put back the items you really need and use regularly. The items your family doesn’t use, consider donating or discarding to get rid of the extra clutter and freeing up space.
