Four Tips For Making Big Décor Changes On A Small Budget

People can get the urge to redecorate their home from seemingly out of nowhere.  When some people feel the need to make an interior décor change they jump right into finding paint samples and buying new furniture.  Others choose not to do anything because they think that their budget won't allow it.  Decorating your home on a budget may seem difficult, but there are a lot of things you can do to make the process easier on your wallet.  If you're ready for a décor change, but need to stick on a budget, follow these easy and inexpensive home décor tips.


A new coat of paint can do wonders to change the look of a room, and it's absolutely essential for anybody who is decorating on a strict budget.  Paint and painting supplies are relatively inexpensive in comparison to other home decorating projects.  It's something you can easily do without a professional, and if you're fast you can have a whole new look for your room after a few hours of work.

Look for alternative merchandise

That brand new leather sofa that's advertised in your local furniture store may be out of your price range, but the floor model you're looking at may not be.  You can save a lot of money redecorating if you're okay with buying furniture on floor display or buying slightly damaged merchandise.  The "slightly damaged" label doesn't mean that something is broken beyond use.  A cabinet door with a squeaky hinge or black rugs were made with a slightly off color dye can earn the label.  Ask the store manager if they have any "as is" merchandise, and see if there's an item with minor damage they're willing to part with.

Get family and friends involved

Your friends and loved ones can help save you a lot of money on home decorating costs.  Instead of hiring a crew to rip out your old carpet, save money and ask a few friends for help.  If you have friends with carpentry and painting skills, ask for their help instead of hiring someone to do it for you.  You should also see if anyone you know if looking to get rid of furniture and décor items you can use.

Repurpose old items

You don't have buy brand new furniture if you want a décor change.  You can easily modify some items you already have to fit your décor style.  If you don't like the current color of your couch you don't have to buy a new one.  A new slip cover can give you the décor change you need without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a new piece of furniture.  Instead of buying a new end table, add a new coat of varnish and make it look like new again.
