10 Ways To Decorate On A Budget

Redecorating a room to make it feel like a whole new home is a rewarding feeling, but it is also hard on the wallet. It doesn’t have to be. We have gathered the most cost-effective ways to decorate your home like a pro. 

1.Shelves over kitchen cabinets 

Kitchen cabinets can cost close to the same as a college education, but the open concept has been really gaining popularity. You can hang floating shelves and display your beautiful or eclectic dishes and then give your bottom cabinets a new paint job to completely change the look of your kitchen at a fraction of the price. 

2. Recycle old barn wood. 

Old barn wood is beautiful and aged to perfection and is considered trash too many. You can head to the internet and find old barn wood people are disposing of and create shelves, benches or simple candle holders that will really make a statement in your home. 

3. Salvage Kitchen Chairs

Head to your local Goodwill and pick up some worn out kitchen chairs. They need not match! Just hit them with some spray paint to give them new life.

4. Showcase Collectibles 

Use shelving to showcase your personality. This could bring life to any room and show off your unique style.

5. Painter’s Drop Cloth

Curtains are essential to make a room feel like home, but they can also add up. Painters drop clothes are a cheap alternative that will bring life to any room.

6. Go To Estate Sales

Estate sales are where you will find those one of a kind gems that were long forgotten.  

7. Decorate With Glassware

Glassware is an inexpensive way to decorate a wall. Try to mix old and new and if you get real wild, add some color pop in there. 

8. Make A Chair Rail 

A chair rail is a great way to add class to any dining room or foyer. They are fairly simple to install but really change the look to any room.

9. Light Up Jugs 

Lighting is definitely an investment, but an essential part of any room. If you want to add lighting, but don't want to spend a ton, add lights to a glass jug.

10. Use Blankets 

Blankets are a great way to help make any living or family room feel inviting. Throw blankets over the side of a couch or fold them up and add them to a basket in the corner. This will give your guests the feeling that they can curl up and stay awhile.

At Willow And Grace Designs, we believe our home is an extension of our personalities, and we love to help people find ways to make their homes speak for them! Sometimes that is easier said than done, and I know I have dealt with frustrating situations where I have a vision of how I want a room or area to look, and it ends up feeling "off."
