Let’s face it, we don’t all have unlimited budgets for making our homes cozy and beautiful. Today I’ll give you a few awesome tricks to give your home that lovely stylish look without breaking the bank.
Mix new with old
By mixing in old furniture, you not only save money – you also inject personality and character to your home. Blending modern trends with pieces inherited or carefully picked at flea markets is what makes our homes unique.
Most of us can’t afford to buy everything new, and trawling boot fairs and antiques markets for more affordable, characterful finds is a great alternative.
Buy Grocery Store Flowers
Fresh flowers bring joy and scents to your home.
A small bunch of flowers could be bought at the grocery store for less than $10 and can last for two weeks if you just remember to change and top up the water. It’s inexpensive and makes a huge difference.
Throw in some color
Paint is extremely inexpensive and makes a big difference. Whether you need to tone down a color or add a bold color to liven up your space, color is great for changing the overall feel of a room.
Don’t fall for Trends
Trends, as the the word implies, come and go. Chasing after the waves of the latest trends is hard if you’re on a budget, because there will always be a new trend right around the corner, a new hot look to match. If you really like something, consider if you’ll also like it in a year or two. If not – save your money for something more sustainable.
