Budget is among the first things I check before redecorating, and let’s be honest, it can affect some of my design choices! However, having a well-decorated home can be affordable with just a few changes.

Make the most of your home decorating budget with these amazing, yet affordable, tips.

Another quick and easy way to update your décor is to match your accessories with the season. Change up your pillow covers, throws, duvets, and decorative knickknacks to instantly rejuvenate your space.

Rearrange your ornaments

For your mantels and ledges, rearrange and combine decorative trinkets of different sizes (such as picture frames) to give the space a makeover. Also, leave a small space between your groupings to make your mantel look more spacious.

When thinking up design accents for your home, you can always take advantage of the beauty of each season. Maximize the different colors of the season when considering the decorative pieces you’ll be using.

Lighting makes a whole lot of difference

Something as simple as lighting can change the way a room looks. During the day, keep the curtains open to let the daylight in. This quick change brightens up the room and makes it look more spacious. You can also replace your blinds with fresh curtains to create a welcoming atmosphere for your family and guests.

Arrange a trade

If you have home décor items that are still in good condition, but you’re tired of them, you can set up a trading system with your friends. Your girlfriends may have amazing pieces that you can trade for your own. You can even make your trading a monthly event!

Sales are your friends
