6 Ways to Refresh Your Home Decor on a Budget

The home is your refuge. You want to be at peace and feel good when you walk through the door every day. If your space feels a little stale, it may be time for an update. But not everyone has the cash to burn on new furniture or decor. Here are some tips to refresh your home decor without spending much at all. From finding inexpensive furnishings in your local thrift store to updating your wallpaper, these hacks will help you breathe new life into your home quickly and easily!

Reupholster Furniture

Reupholster furniture pieces you already own to give them a fresh new look. All you need is some glue and scissors for this quick and easy hack that will update your furniture in no time at all! You can use upholstery fabrics from a fabric store or online to reupholster your furniture.

Switch Out Throws and Cushions

One of the easiest ways to refresh your home is to switch out throws and cushions. Look for a throw or cushion that has an updated pattern or fabric. Many stores are going back to the basics with solids, stripes, and checks–classic designs that never go out of style. Stores like Target have an entire section devoted to throws, with plenty of affordable options in various types. Try your local thrift store if you want something with a little more personality. You’ll find some unique patterns and exciting designs at prices that can’t be beaten!

Add Mirrors

Adding mirrors and plants to your space is a great way to bring in natural light and create the illusion of more space.

Mirrors are a great way to make a room look bigger by reflecting the light from windows and adding an opportunity for you to dress up your space with decorative accents. And they’re relatively inexpensive too! You can hang a mirror on a wall, use one as an end table or coffee tabletop, or set one on the floor as part of a seating area.

Refresh Your Paintwork

Paint is a quick, affordable way to change the look of your home. And you don’t have to paint an entire room to make a difference. Painting just one wall can change the focal point, and it’s an easy way to experiment with colour without committing.

If you want to go bold, pick up a few sample pots at the store and paint each one on the wall for comparison. You may find that you like more than one colour, or at least in different places in your house. If you have time before the paint dries, take down some paint chips and see what stands out to you before making your final decision.

Paint also often makes a room seem more significant than it is because of light reflection, so if that’s something you need right now, painting walls can help!

Update Your Wallpaper

Wallpaper can be a quick and inexpensive way to give your home a new look. You don’t need to replace the entire wall or paint the room to get a fresh, updated feel. Just change out the wallpaper! It’s a simple fix that will make you feel like you just moved into a new house.

Change Lighting

If you are feeling cramped in your home and want to open up the space a little, look at the lighting. You can buy inexpensive lamps or change the bulbs in your fixtures to make your area feel more spacious.
