Often, we wish to decorate our homes, but we are limited by cost. We have been made to believe that once you are not very rich, your home will be a boring mix of colour or a monotone. But then we all want a picture-worthy and eye-catching apartment. So, here are the secrets to decorating your home at an affordable cost.

  • Get creative with the walls

If you can’t afford those expensive paints that make the wall beautiful, you can try making your design with pictures, decorative plates, or mirrors. Using your creative skill, place them in such a way that they will command a sideways glance at any point.

  • Make it bold

Done with the walls? Now find a very big one-piece of furniture and place it at any corner of your choice. Just immediately above the furniture, mount a big wall clock or nice portrait. This will be simple and classic at one glance and it will improve the decoration of your home, all at an affordable cost.

  • Add life or go green

The fastest and most beautiful way to add aesthetics to your home is by getting plants. It could be in a simple vase or frame. It can also be in form of big indoor plants or hanging plants. You don’t need those crazy high-priced vases.

  • Make a statement about your hobbies

What do you love doing for leisure? Assemble them and make a statement with them. Gather your favourite books, pictures, balls, just anything that can fit into a display. Keep them in a corner in form of decoration and watch how spacious and beautiful your apartment will be.

  • What’s your color?

You have made a bold statement with the one-piece furniture, picture frames, and vases. Now add a touch of your favourite colour to the wall. If you feel your favourite colour is not wall compatible, you can ask for google assistance for a wide range of colours that will be simply perfect for the decoration.

  • Light it up

No matter how beautiful your house is, poor lighting automatically makes it sad, ouch. All you need do is set your house in a way that natural lighting comes in the whole day, then at night add lights, fairy tales or candles to make it cosy.

  • Change the fabrics

Since you are giving your house a new look, change the cushion covers, rugs, and carpets. Just place different layers of fabrics in your living room, to make it a bit colourful.

  • DIY to the rescue

If you still can’t afford picture vases, and other things you mentioned, go to Google and check the handcraft options you have. There are so many easy craft ideas on the net like Reuse bottles, furniture pieces,  or any other thing you can think of. Remember there are a lot of ideas on decorations. But you can tap on the secrets to decorating your home at an affordable cost.


You can still decorate your house without overbilling your pocket as many decorators would suggest. Just follow the simple steps above and make your house a beauty to behold. I can also help you shop and design at an affordable cost. Reach out at:
