Upcycle Furniture

Instead of buying new furniture, why not get creative and upcycle what you already have? A coat of chalk paint can transform a dingy old dresser into a vintage-inspired statement piece. You can also switch out the hardware on outdated pieces for something more modern and sleek.

Create an Accent Wall

A fresh coat of paint or wallpaper is one of the cheapest ways to add a big impact to any room in your home. An accent wall is a great way to try out bold colours or patterns that you wouldn’t normally use throughout your entire space.

DIY Pillows

Pillows are one of the easiest (and most affordable!) ways to update the look of any room. You can find lots of fabric remnants at your local craft store and turn them into one-of-a-kind pillows for your living room or bedroom.

Hang Artwork

Art is a great way to add personality and style to any room. You can hang up pieces from thrift stores, online art marketplaces, or even get creative with DIY projects like string art. For example, buy a print from a local artist, and then frame it in an A2 poster frame for an affordable yet stylish look.

Add New Rugs

Rugs are an easy way to spruce up any space, but they don’t have to be expensive! Look for rugs on sale at discount retailers or shop around online to find designer deals on softer materials that won’t break the bank.

Layer Textures

Texture is an important component of any interior design, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Look for items like throws, blankets, and baskets that can add visual interest without breaking the bank.

Hang Sheers or Filters

Filters and sheer curtains are a great way to soften up any space while adding a modern touch at the same time. You can find affordable options online or in stores.

Add Greenery

Houseplants are not only good for your health, but they also look beautiful in just about any space! Try adding some potted plants to liven up any room – succulents require minimal care and maintenance, so they’re perfect for busy homeowners.

Invest in Quality Lighting

Lighting can have a big impact on the look and feel of any room, so it’s worth investing in a few quality pieces. Look for lamps with unique bases that can act as conversation starters or pick up some chic sconces to add ambience to your living space.

Try Wallpaper or Wall Decals

Wallpaper and wall decals are a great way to instantly update any room without spending too much. You can find lots of trendy options online – just make sure you measure carefully before committing!

When it comes to interior design, there are plenty of ways to be stylish and trendy without breaking the bank. With these 10 ideas, you’ll be able to refresh the look of your home and add some personality, all while staying on budget.
