How to Decorate On A Budget


How to Decorate On A Budget

Everyone is on a budget these days.  It’s nearly impossible to go expensive, unless you have a three figure income.  That’s why we are going to talk about how to decorate on a budget.  Now you can have fabulous decorations without breaking the bank.

This is an oldie but a goodie.  Thrift shopping is one way to make sure you stay on budget while you decorate your home.  The beautiful part about thrift shopping is that there are so many options.  There are more thrift shops then just Goodwill out there.  If you look hard enough you may find a higher end thrift store that has exactly what you need—without the high price tag.

Fake It
Everyone wants those high end decorative pieces, but not all of us have the pocket book for it.  You can make your home look just as great with look-a-like pieces.  Not that you need to go buy off the black market for home decorative pieces or anything.  Instead, make a list of those pieces you love and then go on a treasure hunt for the not-so-expensive-pieces.

Ask For Help
Maybe a friend is better at decorating a home than you are?!  It’s okay to reach out to a friend and ask for help.  Sometimes we end up spending way too much money on decorating because we are not sure of our budget.  Ask a friend to shop with you to help you stay completely on budget.

Less Is More
While you may want a fabulous looking house, it is okay to have a simpler look.  You can make your house look fabulous without having it cluttered with expensive décor items.  Just think about the décor pieces you want and go from there.

Who says you have to buy new or used?  Think about this for a second.  What’s wrong with re-purposing something old you have in your home to make it look fabulously new? This is a great way to decorate on a budget.  Plus it’s fun!

Instead of feeling self-conscious about your home décor, you can actually do something about it.  Grab these tips and dig in! Stop feeling like you need the most expensive décor around because re-purposing, thrifting, looking for deals, and just using your imagination are all fabulous ways to make your house look like a home (with a little style added)!
