Now that we’re a month into 2018, it’s time to start on all of those self-improvement projects you’ve been saying you’ll get to eventually. And there’s no better starting point than with your home!
Redecorating and remodeling your space will get you into a fresh headspace that will help you reach all of your goals for this year. Plus it doesn’t have to be expensive! With these tips and tricks for remodeling on a budget, you can revamp your space without breaking the bank.
Wait For Big Sales And Discounts
If you’re in the market to do some massive home renovations this year, then a great way to save on costs is to wait until a store in your area has a sale. Many large home improvement stores, like Home Depot and Rona, have multiple sales throughout the year where you can save big.
If you’ll be investing in something pricey, like new countertops or appliances, then you can save hundreds of dollars by simply scouting out when the next big sale will take place. Right now, Home Depot is having a sale where you can receive 10% off all home décor as well as 10% off wall decor.
Get Creative With Artwork
It’s easy to spend big bucks on livening up the walls of your home. But you don’t need to spend a lot in order to have gorgeous artwork in your home.
A huge tip is to look up DIY projects on Pinterest to see how you can make your very own artwork from the comfort of home. The result will be a trendy looking decoration that also has a personal meaning behind it. Get the whole family involved if you want to give even more sentiment to your home’s artwork.
Not that good with a paintbrush? Another idea is to hit up auction houses or thrift stores to find unique pieces that will add character to your home without making you go broke.
It’s All About The Details
It can be time-consuming and expensive filling up every corner of your home with things. Yet, your space might feel empty and uninviting if you decide to skip knick-knacks in order to save in your budget.
An alternative is to scour out cheaper stores for smaller items that can add detail to your space without making a dent in your budget. Hit up the home décor sections of stores like Wal-Mart or TJ Maxx, which are known for their discounted prices. You can even find cute decoration pieces at the dollar store or thrift store if you look hard enough.
Opt For Old Furniture
You’re not alone in wanting all of your furniture to feel or at least look brand new. Unfortunately, it’s usually way too expensive to upgrade all of your furniture.
But if you want to spruce things up a bit, opt for purchasing furniture from a thrift store, where prices are exponentially cheaper. Or, hit up garage sales or websites like Craigslist to find things people want to get rid of quickly and for cheap prices. It’s easy to DIY a piece of furniture to give it a facelift or make it more in tune with your own personal style.
With these clever tips on how to save when decorating, it’s easy to give your home a fresh makeover without going over budget. What room will you makeover first?
