Your home is the place you come back to after a long day of work. It’s the place where you go to feel comfortable and to relax completely. It’s also the place that sets the tone for a new day as well.
Naturally, you want your home to be truly nice and relaxing. And this doesn’t have to mean you will spend a fortune on revamping your home. As a matter of fact, there are many cheap (and even free) ways to add a complete new look to your home – and following, we have gathered some of our favorite ones. Read on and find out more.
Clean and de-clutter
It costs (almost) nothing and it will breathe a new life into every single room in your house. Trust us on this one, the effort you put into cleaning and de-cluttering your home will be more than worth it when you see everything in its right place. A cluttered home can feel asphyxiating and it can generate even more stress instead of relaxing you – so take a good look at your rooms and create a de-cluttering plan you will actually stick to.
Let nature inside
Of course, we don’t mean you should allow all the outside rodents and weeds into your home. But opening the windows, pulling the curtains and bringing in some flowers and/or greenery can work wonders. A few well-placed plants can make your home feel more…homey. They can add oxygen and comfort to your house and they can make you feel much more relaxed as well. And this will not cost a lot of money either! Extra tip: be creative with your plant pots and decorate them with cute motifs – they will contribute a lot to creating that perfect magazine-worthy décor in your home.
A bucket of paint does not cost a lot – and as long as you have a couple of days off, you can revamp a room in an instant by simply adding a new coat of paint. Think of nude and earthy tones for a relaxing effect and don’t be afraid to paint your room in a bright color either (it will add energy and personality, especially if you place the bright color in a room that’s already very opaque and simple).
It’s in the simple things
Ultimately, revamping a home on a budget can be done cheaply by focusing on the simple things. Organizing your spices and herbs in beautifully decorated Mason Jars in the kitchen can add a very “comfy” feeling to this part of your house. Likewise, creating a beautiful collage with your favorite photos in the bedroom can also add a bit of personality. You may find yourself falling in love with a statement piece of furniture.
Think of simple décor items that change everything – they cost nearly nothing, they can be fun as DIY projects (especially if you have kids who can participate) and they will definitely change the whole aspect of your home. From hand painting vases for the flowers to creating your very own cushion covers, everything can make a huge difference and it can sprinkle your home décor with your own style and personality.
