Many homeowners spend hundreds and thousands for renovation and decorations. We hear them pay lots of money to contractors and interior designers to transform their homes. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford a service like that. Spending money on decorations and workers may not be included in your budget. Maybe you cannot afford to spend a lot of money on house decorations. Or perhaps you are saving money to buy something else. 

Well, you are in luck. There are other ways to beautify your homes without spending a fortune. Small and simple changes to your house can go a long way. Here are some of the most helpful tips on how to make your home beautiful with simple things. 

Simplify Your Homes

There is beauty in simplicity. The first step of making your home appealing is to simplify it. What does this mean? You have to declutter the rooms in your house. Consider removing excess furniture and ornaments in your house. Getting rid of unnecessary decorations and leaving out simple furniture can make your place noteworthy. Make sure to go into every room of the house. For this, you will only need a pair of gloves and some boxes and bins. 

Decluttering your house may seem a simple task. However, it can be very hard at times. You may find some unnecessary things that are quite sentimental. Maybe you found a vase that a friend gave you decades ago. Or perhaps a painting that you did when you were a kid. If you see such objects, be honest to yourself. If the item or object is truly sentimental to you, keep it. Place it in a box and store it somewhere safe. 

If it is meaningless to keep it anymore, or you rarely use it, it is best to get rid of it. If you think someone may be able to use it, you can add it to the donation pile. You can also list these things on some direct selling site. You might even earn a few quid for it. 

Your garden is part of your home and needs to be decorated in a very simple way. Flooring your small or big garden with flooring materials like decking boards will mean hassle-free life in the long run since this type of material would little or no maintenance in the future.

Reuse Old Furniture

Aside from selling unneeded furniture, you can also transform them into something new. Reusing old furniture may seem hard work, but there are simple ways to do it. 

For instance, you may have some wooden chairs. You can get rid of the seat is back. Afterwards, you can cover it with colourful fabrics and turn them into a chic side table. Place a flower vase, and you instantly have a new decoration for your home. You can also use an unused stool for this project. 

There are many other ways you can transform some of your old furniture. You only need some creativity. Otherwise, you can scour the internet and look for simple DIY projects.

Transform Common Household Objects

Aside from furniture, you can also make use of everyday household items to decorate your home. Not only can you find a better use for old things, but you can save money from buying new decorations as well.

For instance, instead of buying tables, you can use old radiator covers to cover your radiators. Most radiator covers are beautiful enough to be used as tables. You can place your flower vase, picture frames, etc., on it. These wooden covers do not only beautify your home; they help you create more space since they are not as large as standard tables.

There are many other household items that you can use that are just laying around. Use your creativity and transform these objects into instant decorations. 

Add a Splash of Colour to Your Walls

Do you have a plain wall that you want to be repainted? Instead of spending money on expensive paint, why not do some DIY decorations on your wall? There are many materials that you can use to add some colour to your dull walls. 

For instance, cut out some patterns and designs from colourful paper, from simple shapes, like circles and squares, to intricate patterns like butterflies and flowers. Then, arrange these cut-outs and paste them on your wall. These can give a new life to your old walls. You can also use different-coloured tapes to design your wall. Line your walls with rows of colourful adhesives.

Aside from tapes and paper cut-outs, you can also use different objects to add colour to your walls. Some people hang colourful dishes and plates in various sizes on the walls of their kitchen or dining area. Others make use of mirrors, clipboards, and hats. 

Rearrange Your Furniture

There are times that we get tired of how our house looks to the point that we no longer think it’s beautiful. Before doing any big makeover, consider mixing up your furniture. Rearranging your furniture can bring new life to your usual decorations. 

For this to work, you may need to plan what to rearrange and where to put them. For instance, would it be possible to switch the chairs from your kitchens with the ones from the other rooms? Would it match the room? You don’t need to make drastic changes. You only need to change things a bit. Even switching out your couch pillows can have significant effects.
