Upgrading your home’s interior look and style is the best way to customize your space and make it your own. You don’t need to spend a fortune to upgrade your home, and it can be done at any budget.
Improving the interior design of your home is not just for aesthetics but can also increase the functionality of your abode. Furniture that doesn’t fit the space or decor that takes up too much space can overall decrease the utility of your home. A look and style that doesn’t reflect your unique personality is also distracting and doesn’t provide a peaceful and calm environment.
The more creative you are, and the more willing you are to do the upgrades yourself, the more money you’ll save on upgrading your space. Here are five tips on how to spruce up your home’s interior when on a budget.
Change the Lighting
If you don’t want to drill holes in the wall or invest time and money into your upgrade, adding or replacing the lighting in your home is the quickest way to make a big impact. Choose from new table lamps, floor lamps, or no-drill lighting fixtures to easily upgrade your home’s interior at any price point. Even a small addition such as cafe lights or twinkle lights can add a touch of style to your interior for just a few dollars.
Quickly Change the Aesthetic with Paint
If you’re a DIY-er at heart, consider changing the paint color of a wall or trim. Painting yourself can save hundreds of dollars on hiring a professional painter, as it only takes a quick trip to the hardware store for the necessary tools. Don’t feel the need to paint all the walls of a room, and instead pick just one accent wall to paint which can make a big difference in the overall look of your home’s interior.
If painting your interior sounds too messy, then opt for using wallpaper instead. Wallpaper also comes in many patterns and textures so you have more creative freedom to choose a style that reflects your personality. Make sure to take accurate measurements of the wall that you need to cover so you can buy enough wallpaper.
Curtains are another way to upgrade your home’s interior when on a budget. Changing the curtains of the living room, kitchen, or master bedroom can oftentimes be enough of an upgrade for you to feel like your home’s interior just had a makeover. Curtains come at every price point, so choose curtains that match your current decor or have fun with seasonal curtains for a festive touch on a budget.
Vintage or Secondhand Finds
If you love the thrill of a good hunt, try scouring thrift shops or flea markets for vintage and secondhand finds. These items can be used as-is if they’re in good condition, or you can choose to restore them yourself. Vintage and secondhand items are often at rock-bottom pricing, and some items might even be in new condition but marked down because it’s from a secondhand store. If you love shopping for these unique pieces then it’s a great way to stay on-budget while also having fun.
Upgrading your home’s interior is possible on any budget. Having an eye for style, and taking your time to plan your purchases and budget are key to upgrading your interior at the price you want
