9 Ways to Spruce Up Your Home On A Budget

Hey! Welcome to the blog guys! 

Today we will be exploring ways to spruce up our homes. Sometimes a space needs a slight refresh but its not necessarily in the budget. That's what I'm here for, we will be going over nine ways to revive the home while spending little to no money. 

1. Accessories

Check out this photo. The shelves look amazing! Each one is staged to perfection, with a few accessories on each. So for this step you can recycle what you have or find a few new pieces. Cost varies depending on your taste. So find a couple inspo pictures that remind you of your space and add those elements. 

You can style a few shelves, a buffet, chest, side table. Anything you have in your space. I would recommend a few discounted stores like, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, etc. You can save a few bucks and find quality pieces. 

2. Slipcovers!

Slipcovers are a great way to change something large that you may not be able to replace just yet. There are slipcovers for everything from recliners, love seats, and sofas to ottomans. The options are far and wide.

So if you're a DIYer, like myself, you can DIY it. If not, you can purchase one for whichever piece of furniture you want to give a new life to. 

3. Paint! 

Refresh your entire room, a door, furniture with a single can of paint (depending on the size). It may not be the quickest project however it can be something your room really needs. Whether you go with the same color or switch it up. Give this option some thought. 

I would recommend semi gloss or eggshell finishes for paint. Both can have great durability however eggshell has a different luster than semi gloss. Grab some samples and get to work!

4. Rearrange your furniture! 

At no cost you can change your space. Create a new floor plan, even if you only move a smaller piece of furniture. You never know how it will change up your room.

There are a ton of tips and tricks out there. Use the internet to your advantage and find or create a room floor plan that aligns with your space. 

5. Add shelves! 

If you need more storage or you have some space you want to fill consider shelving. Whether its floating shelves or shelves being attached with L brackets. They have ready made shelves at stores like Home Depot and Lowe's, they also carry a variety of L-brackets. 

In the photo below, I added shelves to my sons wall. I chose this option because I wanted more storage and I also wanted to add a little dimension to the room. This is a pretty inexpensive option depending on which shelves you pick up. 

6. Contact Paper! 

You can use contact paper in a variety of ways and there are so many options. Whether you want to wrap shelves, countertops, picture frames. Literally anything. Thats the amazing part about it. You can bring any design style you want to a space with something as simple as paper.

7. Change your hardware! 

This can vary in cost as well. Of course quantity and type will determine your cost. You can change your dresser drawers hardware, kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets. 

This update can really change your furniture. Either you can just change the hardware or you can paint and change hardware. Regardless of what you choose, this update may give you the change you're looking for!

8. Add Pillows! 

Did you see it coming? I'm sure you saw this coming. I love pillows, all of them. Add new covers to everything, bed, couch, chairs. Everything. Its a great way to refresh your space. Make them on your own or buy them. From me of course! :-) Prices vary regardless of where you get them!

9. Add Hooks! 

Adding hooks in your space will allow you to organize a little better and give you options. You can add hooks in your bathroom, by the front door or in your closets. If the hooks are visible make sure they still fit the room when they aren't in use. 

This is definitely a cost effective option because you won't need a million hooks. Choose something you love and that fits your space.
