If you are looking to vamp up a room but at no cost, then we have some great ideas of Tatiana‘s home to get you well on your way to sprucing up without splashing out.
1 Reuse Items You Already Own
We all have closets full of items that we don’t use but don’t want to throw away. It is well worth delving into these to find throws, cushions, rolls of wallpaper etc which have been long forgotten but might be just the ticket for your no-budget makeover.
2 Make Pallet Furniture
This is something which is massively popular and features on a tonne of Pinterest boards. People are always giving away wooden pallets and these can be used to make bases for a whole host of furniture such as beds and sofas. On top of being free, this is an excellent way to get creative and make a bespoke piece of furniture.
3 Gather From Nature
There are loads of things you can do with natural materials such as rocks and wood. These items can be used to fashion unique and beautiful decorative displays such as a bathroom feature or a wooden headboard. Not only are they free but they are also a massive conversation starter for anyone coming into your home.
4 Create A Picture Wall
Everyone has photos and these are a great way to add a new look to a room without spending any money. If you can pull together some photo frames (check those closets we mentioned or even create your own), all you need to do is come up with an interesting layout.
5 Check Out Giveaways And Free To Collect
Don’t be afraid of recycling someone else’s things. One mans trash is another mans treasure, and there is lots of treasure to be found online. A simple search on giveaway groups and apps can turn out a multitude of free to collect items which can give a new lease of life to your home.
6 Rejig Your Furniture
Redecorating doesn’t have to mean paint and new carpets, it can be as simple as altering the layout of your furniture. This can dramatically change the look and feel of a room. You could bring pieces in from another room and mix up the soft furnishings too. Et Voilá, a totally new vibe!
7 Bring The Outdoors, Indoors
A great way to redecorate a room is to add some greenery. You don;t have to spend a penny here, because you can simply go out into the garden and take some cuttings of plants you already have. Just make sure that they are able to thrive indoors, otherwise you may end up having to replace them in the not too distant future.
8 Create A Focal Point
If you feel like a room lacks life and interest, a great way to solve this is by creating a focal point. And this can be done with things you already own. Perhaps you might hang an oversized painting on the wall and place a console table underneath with a beautiful plant atop it. The idea is to immediately draw attention to one point in the room as soon as you enter.
9 Paint A Mural
If you have some tins of paint lying around, you can completely change the look of a room by adding a wall mural, and you don’t need to be Picasso to do so. There are plenty of online guides or printable templates which can give inspiration to even the least creative person.
10 Greeting Card Display
If you’re like us, you’ve probably got a stash of old greetings cards somewhere in a drawer which are likely to have some beautiful designs. These can be used to create a beautiful wall design. Whether you choose to hang them from a simple string or place them in frames is completely up to your own imagination.
It doesn’t have to cost and arm and a leg to breathe new life into your home. There are some excellent ways to redecorate any room without having to spend any money. It just takes a little creativity and quite often, recycling things you already own.
