Decorating your home properly can make it feel bigger, warmer, and more luxurious. However, it doesn’t need to cost a lot of money. Simple and inexpensive methods such as changing the color of a wall or adding plants or candles can make the world different. Here are some affordable ways to improve the appearance of your home without spending a lot of money.
Painting is one of the most common steps people make to change the appearance of their home. However, many people don’t realize how important their paint choices are. Even changing the color of one wall or adding a boundary around the room can change its appearance drastically – and it is very important to make the right choice to get the most out of your money. Consider adding color that will add warmth and contrast to your home, making it look more expensive and luxurious.
Changing (or adding to) curtains is another great way to substantially improve the look of your home. There are various styles and colors of curtains to choose from. Consider specifically the size, opacity and color of your new curtain. Smaller and / or more transparent blinds will allow more light to penetrate and brighten your home, and darker colors will frame the window and emphasize the incoming light.
You can also consider replacing other fabrics – such as furniture covers on your sofa or chair, for example – to match or complement the colors and style of your curtains. And, if you feel comfortable doing sewing, you can save more money just by buying cloth for curtains and covers for your furniture and then finishing it yourself.
Finally, perhaps the most pleasant way to add warmth to your home is through decorative items such as plants or candles. This is one of the cheapest additions and often makes the biggest difference. They not only fill small empty spaces around your home – adding finishing touches – but they can also add pleasant fragrances and aromas too. Consider adding small decorative items such as plants, sculptures, reed diffusers or candles as centerpieces to your dining table or coffee, on the edges or shelves in the architecture of your home, or at the end tables, windows and coats or fireplaces.
