Our homes are the place we spend most of our time. Because of that, no matter how much time we spent initially decorating the place, things start to get a bit boring after a while. But that doesn't mean you have to redecorate the entire place every time! There are little ways you can spruce up your home on a budget!
1.Cover the windows
While the common thought may be that you can just add curtains to your windows or at most blinds to decorate the place, there's another way you can still get the privacy you may need while freshening up the home, with glass stickers!
Glass stickers are super easy to apply to any glass surface, especially windows, and can change up the way the whole place looks! There are a few different types of patterns, some monotone, some with beautiful designs and lights peeking through. As the light in the room changes, the whole room changes with it!
2.Add ambient lighting
Lighting is a big thing and can change up a space drastically. This doesn't just apply to inside your home, but outside too. Getting some hanging lights or even a lovely little sparkly tree lamp and placing them on your porch can allow you to create some nice seating outside too. Add to it a swing set, and you'll have a nice cosy place to spend your afternoons.
The biggest part of a room is the walls. They shape the entire place with walls, and they're usually the first thing that gets boring in a home. Thankfully, walls aren't that expensive to change up. Get some paint at your local hardware store, and unleash your creativity on your walls! You can either paint the entire wall a unique, solid colour or try out something more unique. There are lots of different shapes you can paint on the walls to make them more interesting. If you're feeling really adventurous, you can even add a sunset lamp inside at night to change up the whole place from day to night!
If there's one thing that can really ruin a home, it's clutter. Most of the time, we don't even realize the sheer amount of clutter we're collecting on a day to day basis. So step one here is to sort things and see if there are things you can donate to get rid of the clutter, then add creative storage. Creative storage doesn't just help clear the clutter, but it also provides space for you to add some decor pieces!
Get hanging shelves and add them all over your home. Split them up between using for storage and for decor. For the storage ones, get wicker baskets and dump all the clutter in there and then store them. That way, even those will look like they're all done up!
For the decorative ones, you can use artificial flowers, pots, and little eclectic decor pieces that match your overall theme. If there's lots of empty space, add books from the thrift store as shelf fillers and create a nice and cohesive place that just makes sense!
There are even decorative hanging shelves that you don't even need to decorate; just hang them up, and you're good to go!
5.Make it functional
Not all aspects of redecorating have to be just for the aesthetics; you can use decor pieces that add interest and provide a benefit.
Find an empty wall in your home, and add a nice decorative clock to it! If there's already a clock in the house, you can even get a unique wall hanging calendar that you can customize to fit the style of your home.
That way, your home will look nice and decorated, and you'll be able to tell the time and keep the date too!
Make it your own
In the post above, we went over some of the ways you can redecorate your home without having to spend hundreds of dollars on it. But these are just the tip of the iceberg; there's so much more that you can do to redecorate your space. So you can go out there and make your home shine your own way. That way, your home will be interesting and still look like it's your space!
