Decorating your home can be a tedious task. You can go all out and buy the most amazing antiques, glassware, china, or relics and still feel your abode is dull or rearrange the furniture or put up new wallpaper and feel you have mastered the art of home décor. It’s a matter of preferences; some like a house devoid of empty spaces and some believe in the idea of “less is more.”

But one thing that both these kinds of people have to keep in mind is the budget. Smart planning and purchasing can help you buy the stuff you want without burning a hole in your pocket. And New Year is right around the corner, and it’s the perfect time for redecorating your home.

Let’s discuss some smart and affordable home décor ideas:

Rearrange the furniture

It’s an ancient myth that furniture once moved to a particular place at your house shouldn’t be moved. You can be surprised how different your room or drawing room can look and feel if you rearrange the furniture. Move the sofa against the wall or place the bookstand near the lamplight or place the coffee table differently, and the same old place starts to look new.

Declutter the collectables

We are all guilty of cluttering—admit it! Well now, you can brilliantly declutter as well as rearrange your collectables to give a fresh look for your showcase. Move things around; experiment with the stuff you have; get rid of crap that you once considered necessary, and you might start feeling why you didn’t do it earlier.

Oxygen up the place

Go green is the mantra, and our home shouldn’t be any different. We spend considerable time being at home, so breathing fresh should be a priority. House plants add a vibrant look to your home and can also give you a sense of nature in the concrete jungles. Plants like Syngonium, Dieffenbachia (Dumb canes) and Peace lily are aesthetic looking and easy to maintain.

Color the plain walls

Dull looking plain walls can potentially bring down the aura of your home and repainting the walls is laborious work. An easy solution for this is wall stickers—also called wall vinyl, or wall decal. These vinyl stickers are stuck to walls and come in countless designs comprising of pictures, quotes, words, or murals. Besides, they are cheap, and you can often change whenever you are in the mood of seeing some new wall art.

Brighten up the glasswares

Subtle lighting can bring a soothing tone and fantastic ambience to your home. If you have old glassware, wine bottles, or pickle jars you can make it a beautiful piece for your home by placing LED string lights inside the bottles/jars. These LED lights come in a variety of colors and creative designs. Additionally, you can hang the string lights on the walls or tapestry to give a vibrant look to the household. It makes for a great night lamp too.

Take away

Decorating your home should always be a personal choice based on one’s budget, time, and likings. Further, not going overboard with your home décor spending gives you the freedom of investing your money on long term goals.
