Believe it or not, no matter how small your budget, it’s possible to bring style to any room in your home. It’s amazing how many inexpensive ways there are to add style to a room, giving your home a whole new look. Following are some great tips on decorating your home while sticking to your budget.

1. Paint is the best way to spruce up a room on a tight budget.

A couple of gallons of paint will run you less than 50 dollars and can entirely change the look of your room. You might use bright or bold colors to add drama to the room, or go with more neutral colors for a more natural appearance. There are so many ways to use paint creatively. Try painting one wall an accent color, making that wall the focal point of the room. Try painting stripes or use a textured painting technique to add some real interest to the walls.

2.  Your windows are another great place to make a big impact on a room without spending a lot of money.

Whatever room you’re looking to improve, there are plenty of different window coverings you can choose from. For those windows already covered with blinds, a simple valance placed at the top will add considerably more drama to the area.

You’ll be surprised at how many creative ways you can dress a window. For a simple and inexpensive decorating tip, take sheep material and drape it over a decorative curtain rod. You might also try tying those long curtain panels back with thick ribbon or velvet.

3. You can largely impact the look of a room by simply adding some accessories that will tie the room together.

As with most things in life, so often it’s the little things that count when it comes to decorating a room. When used the correct way, accessories such as candles, photos, flowers, and baskets on a mission dresser can add a lot to a room. By simply adding a row of candles to a coffee table or oak night stand, you can give a room a more intimate feeling. With a vase of flowers, any kitchen can look more inviting. Even the smallest touches, such as new towels in a bathroom, can make a big difference.

For those on a tight budget, shop flea markets and consignment stores for these types of items. Shopping this way may be a bit more time consuming, but it will save you a ton of money, especially if you have your entire house to decorate.

4.  Consider rearranging the furniture, or pull items from one room and use them in another.
Those on a tight budget have to work with what they have. Be on the lookout for any piece you might refurbish or recycle to add your own style. Perhaps that old vase that used to hold flowers in the family room might be spray painted with a metallic finish and used as a centerpiece for the dining room table. Carefully consider the items you have and envision how you might change them to fit the style you’re looking for.

Decorating doesn’t have to cost you thousands of dollars. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how far 100 dollars or 200 dollars will go when it comes to decorating your home on a tight budget.
