Are you tired of staring at the same furnishings in the home but have little money to work with to redesign the rooms? Whether you have a few dollars or a few hundred dollars, there are some tips you can follow in adding new looks to your home on a budget.
All it takes is a bit more creativity in finding a deal.
Make yard sales your friend. You might have to wait until the weather is warmer, but it will be worth the wait to get amazing deals on decorations and furniture for the home. Look in your local newspaper or for signs on the side of the road advertising yard sales so you know where to go, instead of wasting time driving around. Bargain with the person over the sale to get the item for the rock bottom price.
Second Hand Stores
There are numerous stores that sell home furnishings and decorations at low prices. These are items that have been donated by people who are updating their own homes or just don’t want what they have anymore.
Add a little fabric to a pillow, or spray paint a dresser to get a new look for your home while not spending a lot of money. You can sometimes find window shutters at second hand stores remodeling companies have donated. You will need to make sure the shutters are the right size for your windows, but when you find the right ones, you can paint them to blend with the home.
Make Your Own
One of the best things to look at in the home is something you created yourself. Find items like suitcases or old tables, and get your creativity in gear. You can make a stylish desk out of old luggage as long as it’s sturdy.
Milk cans and a round piece of wood will make a beautiful end table in the living room with the right colors. You can add more flavor to your windows with custom drapes. Find something that is not in need of many repairs, and add your own personality to it.
Repair What’s Broken
If there is something in the home you can still use, but has a few flaws like paint coming off, then repair it and make it look different. Instead of spending money on something new, fix what you can in the home. Get items from a craft store or a hardware store to add to the furnishings to make them look new such as handles or contact paper.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money redesigning your home if you want a new look. Try to change the color theme of the home so that it looks brighter. You can add curtains to windows or paint over cabinet doors. Take your time in deciding how to invest the money you do have to make your home unique.Facebook.com/doable.finance
