I Can't Afford That: How To Redecorate Your Home When You've Got A Small Budget


If you're tired of the way your home looks, but you're on a tight budget, you can still treat yourself to a new look. Redecorating your home doesn't need to be expensive. In fact, with the right tricks, you can redecorate your home without breaking the bank. You just need to know where to start. Here are four simple tricks you can use to redecorate your home on a very tight budget.

Reupholster Your Old Couches

If your couches have seen better days, but the frames and padding are still intact, it's time to have them reupholstered by a company like Sav-Mor Interiors. You don't need to replace your couches, you just need to give them a new look. Reupholstering your old couches will make them look brand new at a fraction of the cost of replacement. You'll get a new look without the cost of new furniture.

Hit the Thrift Stores

When it comes to decorating your home on a budget, you've got to make friends with the thrift shops. You can find quite a few hidden treasures in your local thrift shops, including accent tables, wall décor, and even new-to-you lighting fixtures. Make a list of the things you'd like to find, have an idea of the way you want your home to look, and start hitting the thrift shops. It's also a good idea to make a list of garage sales and take a weekend scouring those for decorating items you can use in your home.

Choose One Wall to Paint

If painting your entire home isn't in the budget, think smaller. Look around your living room and choose one wall that you'd like to have as your focal point, and paint that one. Adding an accent color to just one of your walls will change the look of your entire room. Add an accent table, a new painting and a chair, and you'll have a focal point to be proud of.

Make Use of Old Sheets

When you're redecorating your home on a budget, don't overlook your old sheets – or old sheets you can find while you're scouring the thrift shops. Old sheets can be used to as furniture covers, especially when you want to create one accent piece. They can also be used as inexpensive curtains. Place two twin flat sheets on an inexpensive rod and tie them back with a ribbon. You'll have a new look for your windows without going over your budget.

Redecorating your home doesn't need to be expensive. If you've got an almost non-existent decorating budget, use the tips provided here to give your home a whole new look.
