Are you tired of the way your home looks, but don’t have the money for a remodeling job? Thankfully, there are quick and easy ways to brighten up a home on a shoestring budget. With a little creativity, a little bit of DIY and imagination, you can easily spruce up your home without having to break the bank. Here are some easy ideas:
- Give your home some added life by purchasing indoor plants
and fresh flowers
. A bouquet of fresh flowers in a vase, or indoor plants are a great way to make your living space seem more alive. For rooms without much natural light, choose the kind of indoor plants that thrive with minimal sunlight.
- Add some color.
If your home has plain walls, adding a painting or a framed art print is a great way to let your personality shine through your home.
- Fabric. Another way to liven up a blank wall is by hanging up a tapestry or a unique piece of fabric as an accent piece. You can even use the fabric as a table runner or table cloth, adding a new dimension to your home design.
- Paint it. If you are looking for a way to repurpose old furniture, why not get crafty by painting it in a different color? Choose a shade of paint that you like and goes well with your home’s color scheme and makeover a chair or table that’s seen better days. You can opt for neutral colors that blend in, or bright colors that stand out and will make your furniture serve as an accent piece. DIY projects for the home are a fun way to exercise your creative juices as well as provide a sense of accomplishment, knowing that you created something.
- Add a mirror.
For smaller spaces
, mirrors give the illusion of a much larger living space. By investing in a mirror, you not only amplify the lighting in a room, but you also make it look like it’s bigger than it really is.
