Budget Home Decor Ideas



We all get the urge to change the look of our homes once in a while. However, as we all know, it can get quite costly.


Luckily, it’s possible to make updates without spending a fortune! To maximise your budget, try these easy home decor ideas.


1. Paint


One of the easiest ways to change the look of a space is to try a new colour. If that’s a little too much for you, even a fresh coat of an existing colour could give the room new life!


Tip: use a paint calculator to avoid buying more paint than you need.


2. Fabrics and rugs


Buying new linen or throw rugs can really elevate an old look. Without busting your budget, this is a great quick fix that can be mixed and matched as desired.

An array of textures, colours and sizes will lend depth and personality to a living space or bedroom and will always be super simple to style.


Tip: Be sure to identify your colour palette before you purchase cushions so you know exactly what to buy – careful consideration is key!


3. Art prints


Try hanging some new art. Good art can be totally affordable and the way it lifts or ties together a room is undeniable.


Tip: Find some ideas that perfectly complement your personality type, so your room will feel more like you. Browse our different collections to find pieces that will match your style.


4. Floor rug


For a small investment you can liven up your favourite room in the house with a fun new rug or mat. Choose one with a hint of colour that will brighten up your surroundings— sky blue, citrus orange, or daisy yellow can all refresh your style from the ground up.


5. Lighting


Not enough natural light? Brighten up or add drama to dim rooms by incorporating a lamp or two so you can revitalise an area with the flick of a switch and it’s one of those great decor ideas you can use even if you are renting and on a budget.


Tip: Rather than choosing the same type, try mixing and matching with an arrangement of pendant lighting to create different lighting moods.


6. Rearrange


Something you can do quickly over a weekend without spending a cent, is to rearrange your room/s. Thoughtfully placing furniture can open up a whole new space and give your room a fresh, new feel. Bring in a table from another room or swap over the floor rugs and enjoy the change!




Another quick and free way to improve how you feel at home is to declutter. Donate or throw out anything you haven’t used in a year, items that take up too much space or things that no longer bring you joy.
