How Can You Decorate With A Stringent Budget?

It’s easy to look with awe at the homes of people who have had the time, funds and inclination to decorate over a period of years. They may have found some wonderful reclaimed wood fashioned into a coffee table, sourced beautiful vintage antiques as decorative pieces, and may have even applied their own custom designs, like stencils around the skirting boards.

For this reason, it’s easy to feel as though you don’t measure up if you’ve just moved in to your home, especially if you only have a very tight budget to decorate with, and no major decorations to bring with you. If you’re in an unfurnished property (which is the case if you stop renting and move into home ownership), then you may slowly build up your owned items over time.

But how can you decorate and make those starter rooms nicer to live in, especially on a tight budget? In this post, we’ll discuss how to achieve all of that and more, because when it comes to decorating, money should be no obstacle.

Pay For Items That Last

If you’re on a limited budget, then it’s important to try and pay for the items that matter first, instead of collecting a range of small items that aren’t going to have much of an impact. For example, choosing some wonderful Roman blinds can add character, high-quality trimming, and also privacy to any room, without costing an arm and a leg. This is much better than opting for thin curtains that won’t fulfill your needs. In some cases, you may even choose to craft these yourself out of appropriate fabric lining, depending on your sewing skills.

Make Use Of Lighting

Lighting might not seem like a “decoration,” but it determines how every other style decision you make will be felt. Luckily, a relatively inexpensive lamp with a good-quality shade and lightbulb can offer ambiance in the right places, be that a soft warm desklamp atop your home office desk, or a beautiful free-standing lamp that helps provide illumination to your living room without shining on the television. Correct lighting will determine how any other decorative implement will look, be that plants on a shelving unit, or how your framed pictures will look on your windowsill.

Keep Decorations Minimal

You’ll have the money for less “items” to furnish the room with, but that doesn’t mean you can’t invest in a few lovely pieces. For instance, a couple of simple frames to place your family photographs in can be enough. You might take some books from your main bookshelf and line this particular shelf with this. Then you might add a potted plant or two, as these are relatively cheap for the most part. That can be enough for now, giving you a lovely base from which to work over time. After all, you don’t need to “complete” the room now, but you can have fun with it.

With this advice, you’re sure to decorate even with a stringent budget.
