Create your own art
Why buy something when you can frame some of your children’s art? Or, grab some vintage wallpaper and put a frame around it. Not only will your pieces stand out, they’ll also be completely unique.
Instead of dishing out a ton of money on an expensive coffee table, buy two small knee-high stools. Add a few coasters for guests to put their drinks on.
Add some warmth to your space with a few texturized items (for example, velvet pillows).
Bring the outside in
Even if you’re not a green thumb, there are still certain plants you can incorporate into your space to make it feel fresh and alive (for example, cacti, spider plants, etc.).
Change the colour of your banister
Brighten your hallway by coating your banister in a fresh colour of paint.
Create a warm entry space
Rearrange and organize your entryway with wicker baskets or a small shelving unit to create a more welcoming space.
Set the mood in any room by swapping brighter bulbs with lower-wattage ones. This will make the room appear more soothing and relaxed.
If you’re used to brightly coloured walls or items, tone things down a bit by refreshing your space with some whites and beiges.
Add a back splash
Nowadays, you can find inexpensive backsplashes at almost any big-box store. It costs little, but has a huge impact on the look of a kitchen.
Let more light into your space by removing staid blinds. Keep windows clean with a few squirts of window cleaner.
Instead of buying a lot of smaller items (which can look cheap and cluttery), buy bigger items to fill your space.
If you have lots of greenery, replant your items in new pots (white ones are the most modern).
