Ways to Redecorate Your Home Without Spending Money
If you're itching to give your home a mini-makeover, but don't have any money in the budget: look no further. We tapped some of our favorite designers to offer up their best and most creative tips on redecorating your home without purchasing a single new item. Here are the top 3 ways to revamp your living space with nothing more than a little elbow grease—and maybe a set of helping hands to lift the heavier items.
Sometimes rearranging furniture can change the entire look and feel of your room. Do not be afraid to move things around and see what it does to your space. It's an easy, inexpensive way to experiment. You might find you have more room than you thought.
Redecorating your home does not require all new furniture and accessories. You can completely revamp your space by simply restyling it with items you already own. For an instant, no-cost update, refresh your existing furnishings and work ordinary objects into your décor with these easy tricks.
Chances are, when you moved in, you shoved your sofa up against a wall to get the most possible space in front of it. But you may want to rethink that decision. Pull the furniture away from the wall. It’ll make the room feel larger.
Plus, floating furniture makes a space feel more thoughtfully arranged—you know like you didn't just shove everything up against a different wall.
If you have the space for it, put the sofa in the center of your living room, then place your console or sideboard behind it, and cover the surface with frames and decorative objects. Experiment with facing the sofa in a different direction so your daily view gets a bit of a switch-up.
SWITCH UP THE ART
A super-impactful, super-easy way to change up your surroundings? Swap your art. If you already have multiple pieces hanging on a gallery wall or around an open space, you can simply remove pieces from their nails or hooks and hang them on different ones.
If you need to do some hanging you haven't gotten to yet, check out our foolproof guide here. Or, if you want to arrange some art without picking up a hammer, try propping it on a shelf or mantel.
Itching for a creative outlet? Make some new art. Paint some new artwork panes to change up the room.
