Home decorating doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
There are plenty of small projects and purchases you can easily afford that will spruce up your décor considerably and all for less than a night out at the movies for two would cost.
If your room is not getting enough natural light from the sun then changing to natural light bulbs can make a huge difference in the appearance of the room.
Natural light will pay off the colors of the room and make them appear brighter. Using the right bulb can totally change the look of the room for pennies.
Slap on a Coat of Paint
Are you sick of looking at a room that seems dreary? There is a simple solution to that; put on a fresh coat of paint. You can paint the walls, your ceiling fans or highlight specific areas of the room.
Painting in brighter colors can bring cheer to an otherwise drab room and uplift your mood at the same time.
Get Rid of Clutter
Clutter can really detract from the appearance of a room. When you get rid of the things you really don’t need that may have piled up in a room, you will be pleased to note that the room looks more spacious.
Recycle some of the better items and get a trash bag for those items that are ready for the garbage bin.
In fact, to de-clutter every room in your house, decide to have a garage sale and at least make some money from your accumulated junk.
Invest in Accessories
Not to confuse accessories with clutter, why not go out and buy small accessories such as a new throw rug, a hanging for the wall or fresh pillows for the sofa if you are working on your living room.
A green houseplant can also make a world of difference in how the room appears.
You might want to take some of those pictures you have been meaning to frame and mount them on the wall. Picture frames are fairly inexpensive and hanging them on the wall will free up space on other surfaces and will reduce the clutter effect.
Redecorating a room doesn’t always mean you have to do a major renovation. Sometimes just subtle touches can make a huge difference in the way a room looks or feels.
