Love your home again - even on a budget!


Love your home again - even on a budget! It’s been a few year since you’ve moved into your home; you’re Pinterest page is full of glamorously dreamy homes that make your own interior feel a little lackluster. You would love to revamp your home with a remodel but it really isn’t in the budget at the moment. However, some interior design updates and a few home décor changes are all you need to give your home the feel of a full remodel. The best thing about these interior design updates is that you don’t need to spend thousands in order to create a beautiful space that you’ll love coming home to everyday.


One of the easiest ways to dramatically change the look of your home is with a fresh coat of paint. New paint can give your home the fresh look of a whole home remodel without breaking the bank. The best thing about paint is that you can DIY if you want to keep your budget to a minimum. You also don’t need to completely repaint your entire house to spice up your home décor. Simply add a few accent walls for a fresh interior design update.

Curtains & Window Coverings

Switching up your window coverings will definitely have your guests taking a double take the next time they enter your home. Switching from curtains to blinds or vice versa will completely change the look of your interior design. If you don’t want a change that dramatic, changing the color scheme or pattern of your curtains will help give your house that fresh remodel vibe.


Not everyone has the budget for a complete floor overhaul. Rugs are a budget friendly interior design go-to for floors at a fraction of the cost it would take to re-carpet or tile your home. Another huge plus about rugs is that you instantly get to see your interior design change.  All you have to do is drive to your favorite home décor store and haul your new rugs home. No waiting days for tile to be installed or hard wood to be put together. You can add accent rugs and rug runners to your hallways easily and instantly to help transform your home décor.

Art & Wall Hangings

Another interior design must that people often overlook when they remodel their homes are wall hangings and artwork. It is possible to purchase quality artwork that will completely update the feel of your home décor on a budget; you just have to know where to look! Estate sales are a great place to look when you are working with a budget. With a little luck you should be able to come up on a few pieces of a collection at these estate sales. Matching artwork will give your home décor a professional look at a fraction of the price. If you find a few pieces that you like but the frames don’t match your interior design theme you can easily pick up some new matching frames that will go with the rest of your home décor.

Miscellaneous Additions

There are a few other inexpensive items that will change the look of your home décor. You can find new comforter/sheet sets for your bedrooms and towels for your bathrooms at highly discounted rates online at bulk discount vendors like Overstock and Wayfair. You can also add new throw pillows to your beds and couches to match your new interior décor. Plants are a nice addition to your bathrooms, living room and family room spaces. You can choose either fake or live plants or a combination of both. Don’t forget to take into consideration that fake plants are better suited for bathrooms without windows or spaces that don’t receive much natural light. You can also hit up your local discount stores for various items such as vases, centerpieces and other odds and ends to add the finishing touches to your home décor.

Now sit back and enjoy your beautifully updated home and celebrate the fact that you didn’t have to break the bank for it!
