Home makeovers can be confusing, overwhelming and most importantly, expensive. But it doesn’t have to be. There are many ways you can give your home a facelift without shelling out loads of cash. A simple coat of paint, a couple picture frames and even a few decorative wall mirrorswould do the trick.
With a little elbow grease and some creativity, you can have your home looking like new in no time… but how?
Buy a tree, a plant or some flowers. This will bring life to your home without spending much money at all. Plus, it can never hurt to add a little oxygen to your room. Real plants can be masculine or feminine, it just depends what kind you choose. Buy, water and let it grow.
What’s not to love? It’s looks good and it smells great. Potpourri can give your living room that comfortable feel and your bathroom that flowery scent. Put it in a basket, a glass bowl or even a candleholder. And the best part is, it’s insanely cheap.
There many things you can do with a simple bucket of paint. Different color combinations and a variety of designs can really spruce up any room. Painting is a very effective way to completely change the aspect of your home, inside and out. And don’t forget, a bucket of paint is less expensive than changing your furniture and it also can be a lot fun. Invite a few friends over and have a painting party. The best thing about painting is making it your own. Use your imagination to paint anything you want. Make it natural and soft or loud and bright, that’s up to you. Grab a paintbrush and go wild.
Light up your night
Candles will bring romance to any room. They are inexpensive and you can never have too many. With the pleasant aroma and comforting flicker of the flame, you can’t go wrong with a few simple candles around the house.
Wicker baskets, fruit bowls and even seasonal rugs can give any home a very welcoming feel. Seasonal accessories are an inexpensive decoration that you can change out with the change of the weather.
Lamps can be a very unique decoration in every room of your house. You can buy them at any thrift store or even fix up an old one that you no longer use. While making your rooms look larger, lamps can also transform the feel in your rooms. Use your new lamp together with a couple decorative wall mirrors and you have yourself a bright new look to your master bedroom.
