Inexpensive ways to decorate your house

Are you looking to redecorate you house but have no idea where to start? Have you just moved into a new place that needs decorating but it’s all looking a bit too expensive for your liking?

Interior decorating can be a fun task, especially if you are trying to make your house into your dream home. However, a lot of the guidelines out there about redecorating your home expect you to have an unlimited reserve of money for the tips that they recommend.

For someone who is decorating their house for the first time you might have no clue where to start and be overwhelmed by all the very pricey products that are out there. But fear not, there are plenty of ways to go about this in an inexpensive but still effective way.

If you are in need of some help, here are a few tips and inexpensive ways that you can decorate your house.

Fill The Walls With Art

When it comes to decorating houses, most people completely miss out on the wall and just think about furniture and little trinkets, as well as more practical things to use. They always seem to forget that your walls are a blank canvas waiting to be decorated in your unique style.

It is also one of the cheapest and easiest ways to decorate a room, as well as space-saving considering it literally just sits on your wall. Affordable options you could think about going for when decorating your walls are canvasses and posters.

Canvasses are a fantastic way to add some colour to your walls or add what looks like painted art work, but at a fraction of the price, and are sold at many online retailers, such as Art Frill, and you can view some of their canvasses here. You might think that posters are reserved for the teenage girls with a celebrity crush, but they actually come in such a wide variety of prints and pictures.

Paint the walls

You may think that when it comes to painting your walls, it will end up being expensive because you will need someone to do it for you and it will not be worth it because no one will even notice. Painting your walls, even a slightly different colour, can with the whole room a different tone and aesthetic of a room, and on top of that, it’s a fairly easy task that you could knock out in an afternoon, maybe two, if you are dedicated to the task. Painting your walls is tiring but not a difficult thing to do.

If you are going for a more luxurious look you should try and stick to the more neutral or tan tones. This will make your house flow seamlessly and reduce jarring transitions.

Atmosphere is key

Creating atmosphere is a fairly simple because all you have to do is look around for things that suit the look and tone that you are going for and enhance it a little. Have a look in flea markets, second hand or vintage shops, or even just shop around you own home to find particular items that suit the aesthetic of the room you are redecorating.

Creating atmosphere can come from including plants around your house to create and air of freshness while also bringing colour and life into your home. Other things you can include are flowers in a vase, also for some colour, some candles to create a sense of cosiness, or even bowls of fruit that can give you house a seasonal glow.

Cushions and throws

Cushions and throws are very often overlooked because they seem pointless and a waste of space but this is not the case. Firstly, decorative pillows and throws are generally quite inexpensive which makes them a great choice to bring in some texture and colour when decorating different rooms in your home without doing anything permanent.

These throws and pillows can also allow you to complete the look of you den, living room, or even bedroom, and can help create some contrast from the rest of the room.

In the end, while it may seem costly, and you may have to pay at least a little bit for all of these things, they are far more cost effective options than buying completely new furniture. You don’t have to break the bank to have a beautiful home.
