10 Free Home Decor Ideas

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

There are lots of ways that you can update your home décor for FREE, but not everyone knows what simple things can make such a BIG difference! So in this post I am going to be sharing 13 ideas with you as to how you can update your home without it costing you a penny!

1. Use old paint you have taking up space in the garage or shed, in new ways. Perk up a table or a wooden chair that have seen better days by painting them in a bright, unexpected shade, or use painter’s tape to section off stripes to create a funky look.

2. Dig out those fabric swatches you can’t bear to part with. They might be just the right size to re-cover your old throw cushions for your sofa or bed. Floral prints, stripes or gingham are fun for the summer, especially if the colour scheme is similar so you can mix and match!

3.  Do you have boxes of photos that never get seen? Pull out some favourite and replace your old framed photographs with these ‘new’ ones. Group them in odd numbers on walls, shelves, coffee tables or mantles.

4.  Re-arrange the furniture in a room. Sometimes just something as simple as changing the layout of a room can make the world of difference! Rethink what rooms your furniture could go in, why not move a small chair into your bedroom, near a window for a nice reading nook?

5. Put old wallpaper to good use by using pieces to create pretty drawer liners.

6. Create a new headboard from a beautiful blanket or quilt. Just fold it neatly over the bed frame or existing headboard for a nice shot of fresh.

7. If you have outdoor gardens, with flowers in bloom, cut some and bring them inside to enjoy in the house.

8.  Mix two colours of bathroom towels on the racks and in baskets, rather than always reaching for a stack of the same shade. Try mixing your mint with aqua or turquoise with white.

9.  Repurpose small, empty bottles to become single bloom vases. We like clear glass in varied sizes and heights. Group in clusters.

10. Pull out those baskets you keep forgetting about and put them to good use to house magazines and books you’re presently reading at your bedside.
