Decorating Your Home on a Budget

Becoming a homeowner comes with a wide variety of emotions and new responsibilities, but the experience of decorating your new home should be something you can look forward to and not dread.  Anyone who has moved before knows that feeling of getting your current belongings moved into your new home. Within days, a list of items you want or need for your new space start piling up.  This is the moment where some people may have that thought of “how am I going to afford to decorate this space”…

We’re here to provide a few pointers and hopefully make it a more enjoyable experience.  There are SO many ways to decorate and create your little in-home oasis without spending a fortune! Here are a few easy tips and tricks for decorating on a budget:

 [THROW BLANKETS & PILLOWS] This is such a simple way to change your living room or bedroom space. If you’re on a budget (like most people are), this is a great inexpensive solution to making your space feel cozy and homey. It’s a convenient and creative way to add pops of color and texture to an otherwise blank space. These items are also easy to change with seasons or as your style grows without breaking the bank. What could be better?!

[LIGHTING] Lamps are another great and affordable way to change up your home. It not only fills blank space on side tables or empty room corners, but the soft light really changes the feel of a room. Once again, this is an item that you can change as your style does – switching out the base or the shade is easy, and you would be surprised with how that small change can impact a room!

[FRESH FLOWERS] We personally LOVE flowers and plants of all kinds, so we may be biased, but it’s a game changer for us. Not only does your home smell pretty, it also looks pretty! Between the pops of color and the fresh smell, a flower arrangement is the most simple and perfect centerpiece for a bare table or counter space. Plus, with there being so many different types of flowers, you’re never stuck with the same kind!

We hope this will help make your moving and decorating experience a little more fun and a lot less stressful! If you’re struggling with where to shop for some of these items, here is a short list of our favorite, affordable places to check out:
