Time to add shine to your house! In the fall we are all craving change. Monotonous doesn’t excite us and just like we need a change in our lives, our homes need change as well. You must have heard those people who say that they don’t feel like being in their homes. Don’t think that only those who spend thousands of dollars can improve the look of their homes. Budget-friendly decorating is possible for those that want to think creatively.
You too can do it.
Here are some easy tips that will help:
Transform Your Empty Jar into a Beautiful Vase or a Candle
You surely have empty jars at your house. Using them is a cost-effective way of giving your place a bit of a facelift. Ever thought of it? You can turn it into a beautiful vase. Depending on your decorating style you can dress it up or dress it down. Wrap it with burlap and attach a pretty bow if your style is country or rustic industrial.
Or if you are more traditional learn how to arrange simple fall flowers into a gorgeous arrangement with some helpful Etsy tutorials.
Use Inexpensive Candles
Here is the way to feel huggerly in the fall. Fill your empty glass jars with candle wax. You just need to place a candle thread in the glass jar and add the melted colorful wax inside that jar. If you have star stickers, you can stick them onto the jar. We all have so many empty mayonnaise jars, but it doesn’t mean that one should turn all of them into creative vases or candle jars. You first need to choose one or two colors and make a sound theme.
Make a Beautiful Aquarium
You can make your little aquarium with the help of beautiful jars. If you have an empty glass jar, all you need to do is to put in the pebbles inside and artificial plants to give it a look at the aquarium. Add some LED lights. Buy fishes if you want. Fishes are not expensive; you can buy a fighter fish or a goldfish for your little aquarium. You can place this jar in the hallway or keep it in your lounge.
Be Creative with the Wooden Crates
You can use crates for storage and display. To transform the look of a crate you just need to paint it and add some writing. Embellish it with a bow or other details and you have a beautiful piece of furniture. When you are determined to be creative the sky is not the limit.
Make Artificial Flowers
Those empty vases in your home don’t look good. If you are not willing to spend the money on buying the expensive artificial flowers, go to the art & craft store and purchase formic sheets. You can make beautiful flowers from the formic sheets with the help of YouTube. It is quite an inexpensive way that instantly enhances your beautiful home. Plus it is exciting to learn new things.
Illuminate Your Space
The best way of enhancing the look of your house is by illuminating it. You can buy cheap lights for your entryway or for the living space. When you insert the lights there, you will experience a significant change in the look of that area. You can buy LED string lights on Amazon and hang them avoiding the expense of hiring an electrician.
Place a Mirror on the Wall
If you have a small room and want it to look bigger use a mirror to visually expand the space. It will give you an illusion of a bigger room.
Bring in Artwork to Enhance the Barren Walls
You must have some barren walls at your home. Use framed quotes, photographs and gallery prints for your display over a sofa. Use a common theme or color for creating unity. Once you will do it, you will never find your walls, boring ever again.
Get Inexpensive Rugs
Rugs can never go out of style! If you use simple sisal rugs in neutral tones they can match any interior and color which means they are usable in any room.
The presence of plants in the house not only makes a home look beautiful but it also contributes to the air-purifying. Plants relax you and you get a sense of peace.
If you have little glass jars at home, you can convert them into plants and can hang on the walls. Or, you can buy plants and can place them in your lounge or the main entrance of your house. Buy some colorful pots or buy a paint color and transform your beautiful plant pots into a piece of art.
Home is a place that provides ultimate peace to your heart. The day’s hard work makes you tired enough so you should taste the sense of belonging as soon as you step into your house. Little improvements can transform the look of your home and get you the feeling you crave. I hope that the above budget-friendly decorating tips can help to change the look of your home within the budget.
