Paint is the cheapest and quickest way to change the look and feel of a room.
A light colour palette is a great way to make a room appear larger.
If you don’t have the time for a big-time paint job, just paint an accent wall in a high-contrast colour. With a single quart of your favourite colour paint, you can make a huge transformation.
You can also save money and space by buying furniture that serves double-duty. A trunk is a very versatile piece as it can be a table that doubles as storage.
Using a bookcase to divide a room is an absolute must, especially when decorating a small space.
Lighting is a cost-effective way to add ambience and mood. Lamps transform dingy, dark rooms into warm inviting spaces. You can easily update an old lamp with some spray paint and a new lampshade.
Changing the look of your kitchen can be as simple as changing the door and drawer pulls. This can make a surprisingly big impact and give the kitchen a new fresh look.
Old chairs can be brought back to life with some spray paint and new fabric for the seats. Simply take the seats off the chairs, spray paint the chairs, recover the seats and put them back on.
If the chairs are for the kitchen, why not go through that drawer of linen and cotton tea towels you have never used and see if they will fit the seat cushions.
They do not have to match. In no time at all you have a new fresh look that was easy, inexpensive and uniquely you.
Transforming an old dresser into a new accent piece with new paint and hardware will change the look of any space.
Enhance roller blinds with decorative ribbon on either the lower edge or along the outer edges.
Making new fabric covers for throw pillows will brighten and breathe new life into almost any room.
Moving small pieces of furniture and accent pieces from one room to another is a good way to make a decorating changes without spending anything. Relocate to redecorate!
