Renovating your home certainly adds to its value and beauty. But what if you’re on a limited budget and you still want to beautify your home? The answer to that is simple; choose some less expensive decorating options to give your home a makeover. Fortunately, there are many of them, including the four suggestions on this list. These allow you to brighten your home without breaking the bank.
Lay Down Rugs
Area rugs allow you to cover the floor without having to invest in the wall-to-wall carpet. To make the most of this addition, be sure to choose a rug that will extend under the furniture. Additionally, a rug that has several colors in it can pull together a room with accents of the same color. For example, if you have furniture and accessories that are dark green, burgundy, and brown, then look for a rug whose pattern includes those same colors.
Curtain adds a pop of colors to your walls and serves a practical purpose as well. They keep the sun out in the summer and the warmth inside during the winter. Do be sure to choose curtains that fit the window; a good rule of thumb is to pick drapes that are twice the size of the windows. Also, be aware of the pattern you choose. Like the rugs in your home, multicolored curtains can pull a room’s various colors together. However, do keep in mind that if the curtains are too bright and patterned, they may draw the eye away from your chosen focal point (the fireplace, for example).
Strategically-hung mirrors in your home create the illusion of more space. Thus, they’re a near-perfect addition to a focal wall in a small space, like a studio. Additionally, hanging them above the fireplace and placing a few candles in front of them adds warmth and beauty to a room. Best of all, the most exciting mirrors are often to be found at estate and yard sales, making them inexpensive to boot.
Declutter To Open Up Space
Sometimes, your home may have an underlying beauty that gets lost in all of the clutter. When this is the case, nothing in your home looks perfect. The beautiful additions, like curtains or mirrors, can’t compete with the junk surrounding them. Fortunately, removing waste from your home doesn’t have to be the chore it sounds. Start small. Throw away or chuck out the items that you no longer want rather than finding a new place for them. Continue to pare down like this until your clutter disappears. If you have large volumes of junk or large items, you can also hire a junk removal service to carry off the trash for you.
You won’t always have the budget to do major renovations. That doesn’t mean that you have to the commonplace in your home. There are inexpensive additions, like curtains, rugs, and mirrors that will beautify your home without costing a lot of money. Finally, if you remove the extra clutter that you have in your home, then the additions that you do choose will look all the better.
