Redecorate on a Budget

Redecorate on a Budget

It’s easy to sink a lot of money into a complete home redecoration plan. Design shows on TV make it look easy to add a pop of color here or a new sofa there. Redoing your home can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Before making a redecoration plan, consider these ideas that can save you money.

Do It Yourself
So many things we think we can’t do, we absolutely can, and for a fraction of the price. When you get into plumbing or electrical, you may want to call a professional. But you can do basic home remodeling on your own. Do you want to change the floor? There are plenty of easy options available at big-box stores. Do you want to build a new room divider or add color to the room? You can do that easily, too.  

Rearrange Things & Declutter
Sometimes, the itch to redecorate can be scratched by rearranging what you already have. Consider new configurations for your sofa, entertainment center and other furniture pieces for a whole new look. You can even swap in some accessories from other rooms to give the newly arranged room a fresh feeling. 

Paint Is Cheap
If you do want to get your hands dirty, the single least expensive thing you can do to spruce up the look of a room is to paint it. Pick any color, from light to dark, to change the entire feel of the room. Are you tired of white walls? Choose a bold red. Are you concerned that too much color will feel make the room look small? Paint just one feature wall. 

Secondhand Adventure
A new furniture piece can go a long way toward giving you a sense of enjoyment in your space. But you don’t have to buy completely new. A fun activity you can do with the whole family is thrifting or antiquing. There are also many sites, like NextDoor and on Facebook, where you find gently used pieces for sale. 

Add Accessories
A small change can bring big results. A simple accessory in a favorite color can change the entire look of a room. And you can get inexpensive accessories at almost any store. For example, you could buy new pillows to add a pop of color to your sofa, loveseat or chairs.

Wake County has also recognized Real Estate as an Essential Service. Of course people’s health and safety are my top priority!
