Inexpensive Decorating for Homeowners on a Budget

Posted on May 27th, 2016 by

Drooling over beautiful home design pictures on Pinterest can be frustrating if you believe those chic designs are only for homeowners with deep pockets. However, even on a slimmer budget, you can make your home look like a breath of fresh air with some inexpensive, stylish home décor. The design experts at CMA Flooring, a trusted Carrollton flooring store, have a few suggestions you may want to consider.

Canvas the Area

If you’re handy with a paintbrush but are reluctant to paint your walls, this is a great compromise. Find a large canvas that takes up most of the wall space and paint it with latex paint. Get one of your more artistic friends or family members to help out, or just let your own inner Van Gogh emerge. When you’re done, you’ll have a beautiful wall accent at a much cheaper cost than most original works of art.

Create a Side Table

Take several small modular storage units and stack them up to make a side table for your couch. Then, create miniature displays for each module, which can include items like candles, seashells, decorative vases, or the stack of books you’ll get around to reading one day.

Decorate with Hoops

Take some inexpensive embroidery hoops, which can be found at most craft stores, and use them to secure assorted squares of fabric. Hot glue the fabric between the inner and outer hoop, cut away the excess, and hang the hoops in clusters on a wall. Don’t forget to lay the fabrics out first to experiment and determine which ones would look best in your room, and try to stick to similar hues.

Try Laminate Floors

If the pine wood flooring you’ve been pining after is a tad out of your budget, laminate flooring is an inexpensive, yet realistic-looking alternative. In fact, you’ve probably seen it in other homes before and were fooled into thinking it was the real thing. This affordable flooring option comes in a number of styles and colors you can choose from.
