5 Helpful Tips for Updating your Interior Decor on a Budget

So, you want to change the look of your home but you don’t want to spend too much money on it?

Yes, it is still possible to update your home’s decoration with shelling out the big bucks.

Just check out these tips that you can follow.

1. Set a budget

First and foremost, you need to give yourself a limit on how much you are willing to shell out for your interior decoration. Because if you don’t, and once you get started perusing through some online catalogs or visiting a furniture store, you might not be able to resist buying this and that.

Even if you say that you are only buying small knick-knacks that you can use to accent areas of the home, but when you add them all up, they can still cost a lot.

So set a budget and stick to it, don’t worry as even with a low budget you will still be able to achieve a beautiful home.

2. Find a design inspiration

One tip that you can do is to follow a design inspiration or a theme. This will limit your choices and allow you to spend your budget wisely. There are so many design inspirations to choose from, you can go from the ornate to the minimal and sleek design.

Just make sure you do enough research because even with a specific theme in mind, there will still be a lot of options.

In bathrooms, for example, you might think choosing a toilet and sink can be easy, but you might be overwhelmed with the options you have, so better check out this buying guide from Home Awakening before you decorate your bathroom.

3. Get rid of the clutter and unsightly items

Before you start worrying about what things you should buy in order to update your interior decoration, try to look at your home first and see if there is anything that you need to get rid of.

Maybe a bookshelf that you think is unsightly just needs to be rid of all the clutter on it? Or perhaps you have dilapidated furniture inside?

Try to see if you can upcycle and refurbish it for another purpose, but if not, it’s better to get rid of them or they will just be an eyesore to your home.

4. Paint your wall

You don’t need to buy new furniture or invest in a new painting to create a whole new look for your home. Something as simple as painting your whole can make a world of difference. It does not even have to be the whole wall, but an accent wall and you will be surprised to find your home can look good as new with just a simple paint job.

But make sure that you choose a color that fits with not just your design inspiration, but also with the present things you have at home, from furniture to small accents.

5. Check out thrift shops and garage sales for some unique finds

Don’t hesitate to go to garage sales and thrift shops because you just might find some great stuff that you can find for your home. Not only will they be unique and one of a kind but much cheaper too.

  1. Number 3 is a point well-taken! I followed Blake’s advice and consulted friends who informed me that even my stacked books (on my to-be-read-later list) were considered by them to be “clutter”. Ridding the rooms of such items really made a huge difference!
