Tips for Decorating on a Budget - Alan Farr Limited

Do you want to transform your home but not spend too much? We know how expensive completely decorating your home can be, so below we’ve given you some of our top tips for decorating on a budget:

Make Use of What You Already Have

If you’re decorating on a budget, the last thing you want to be doing is buying brand new furniture. Sit and look at what you already have and think about what you could do differently with it to give your home a new look. Think about furniture restoration; does your budget allow you to get your furniture restored so that it looks new again? Furniture restoration could be a much cheaper alternative to buying new furniture. Change the colour of your furniture or change the drawer and door knobs. Style up your furniture with blankets and cushions. You may find that all it takes is a little move around of your furniture to give a room a fresh look.

Get a Rug

Stained carpet? Burn mark from an open fire? If you’re decorating on a budget, don’t think about getting new carpet; get a rug instead. Rugs can add detail to a room and also hide those marks you don’t want your guests to notice! They’re also really great for making a room feel extra cosy, especially during the colder months!

Get Rid of Clutter

We’ve left the cheapest and easiest of our tips for decorating on a budget until last. If you want your home to look fresh and new, say goodbye to all of the clutter; it’s so easy and it costs nothing! Think about what you actually need in your house and get rid of anything else that is not needed. You’ll be surprised at how different a room can look once you’ve got rid of all of the unnecessary items!
