Does your home or office space look generic, like it came premade out of a magazine or a furniture catalog? Are you looking for a change of scenery but don’t want to break the bank while redecorating? If this sounds like you, then try these simple and inexpensive decorating tips.
One of the most inexpensive ways to get new decorations is to make them yourself! Try your hand at painting, embroidery, or using an adult coloring book to add a splash of color and creativity into your home or office. If you have children, encourage them to make cute drawings or crafts to hang up.
If art is not your forte, but you still want to add something to your home or office that has a homemade look, try to buy handmade art instead. You can do this by commissioning an artist to make something or by shopping around at craft stores or online.
New Paint Job
If possible, trying out a new color of paint on the walls is a great way to change things up without needing to buy new items. Unlike making art, painting walls doesn’t take much talent to do right. However, it can be time-consuming. If you decide to do this, make sure you have a few hours set aside so you can do multiple (at least two) coats of paint in one day.
Lastly, try adding a plant to your home or office. Along with adding color, it can be nice to have something to take care of and see grow and change every day. If you don’t have a green thumb, consider getting a plant that doesn’t require a lot of attention, like a cactus or succulent.
Try any or all of these three decoration ideas to add color to your home or office. Even though these changes may seem small, they can make a big difference!
