Everyone should have the chance for their home to be a beautiful space, no matter what their budget is. Studies have shown that living in a well decorated home is good for your mood as well as your mental health, so to bring you the benefits of a beautiful home, we’ve put together a quick guide on some budget friendly décor choices that you can use to beautify your home.
Choose Budget-Friendly Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Having a set of tired old blinds hanging in your window can really bring down the look of any room, even if the rest of the room is perfectly decorated, a set of tatty old blinds can ruin the vibe. So, you should look to replace your old window blinds with a fresh new set, while this isn’t easy on a budget, there are some budget friendly blinds that you can use.
Aluminium venetian blinds are a great budget-friendly choice, made up of thin horizontal slats of aluminium connected together by strings they’re functional, stylish and most importantly cheap. Thanks to the lightweight nature of using metal rather than wood, these blinds have a very agreeable price point and can be made in a wide variety of colours, ensuring you can find a new metal blind that fits with your home’s décor.
Create Your Own Art For Display In Your Home
When it comes to décor accessories, you can rarely go wrong by hanging up some art. Having art on your walls injects the room with colour, focal points and a touch of class. The only problem with hanging art is that art can be rather expensive to purchase, especially if you want to display pieces by a famous artist.
The budget-friendly alternative to buying expensive art is a pretty simple one: make your own! If you have some artistic skills, you can let them loose by creating original art, or recreating art pieces that you enjoy. Or, if you’re not so artistically inclined you can cheat a bit and buy some cheap custom prints of designs you can find on the internet. However you go about it, adding some art to your walls is a sure-fire way to add some flair to your home.
Give Wooden Furniture A Modern Look With a Lick Of Paint
Wooden furniture like chairs, cupboards and storage units are great for those on a budget, because they are incredibly resilient and can last for years. But their longevity is also a downside, while your wooden coffee table could live for decades, it won’t always look like new, so if you have some older pieces of wooden furniture that are starting to show their age, you can give them a facelift rather than buying new furniture.
To bring your old wooden furniture back to life, all you need is some sandpaper and a tin of wood paint or wood varnish, which you can find at any hardware store. Lightly sand the surface of your old wooden pieces to remove the top layer of varnish on it. Once you’ve sandpapered, all you need to do is put on a coat or two of your paint or varnish and your wooden furniture will look brand new once again, bringing fresh life into your home.
