Last updated on June 30th, 2023

Home designing was never this easy. With the plethora of furniture, curtains, bed linen and other knick-knacks easily available in the market, anyone can showcase a great home décor.

But therein lies the problem. Everyone and their uncle are doing pretty much the same thing. So, for a standout budget décor, you need to amp up your game. And hey, no need to break into a sweat. These easy-peasy décor tricks don’t cost a bomb. Follow us, and we will show you how.

Larger-Than-Life Artwork

A single piece of artwork does more for your home décor than tons of tiny picture frames struggling to be noticed in your picture gallery. Granted, the artwork of that size doesn’t come cheap. So, what are your options?

We suggest:

  • DIY artwork and paintings. Here’s how:

Modern art is child’s play. Literally. A large blank canvas and a few paints are all you need to create wonderful artwork. Masking tape is the easiest way to achieve this. By masking off areas you don’t want to be painted, you can get amazing paintings. If you are a newbie, try out your skills on a small canvas before tackling a bigger one.

Trims and Moldings

To get this right, you will have to dip into your savings. Hello! We said budget, not free! Wood trimmings amp up the look of doorways, cabinet shutters, or wall art, by defining the space. They work on walls too. Your options?

We suggest:

  • Wainscotting. This means covering half your wall with wooden paneling and painting the rest in gorgeous colors.

  • Add wooden trim to your windows for vintage appeal.

  • Bead molding adds dimension to your cabinetry.

Say Goodbye to Old Fixtures

While it seems innocuous, old and dated handles can mar the look of your décor. So, how do you spruce up the look?

We suggest:

  • Replace old and dated drawer pulls and handles.

  • Metal pulls add glamorous chic. For a staid and stylish look, go for black handles.

  • While you are at it, change water-stained faucets and replace them with modern versions.

Invest in an Interesting Backsplash

The easiest way to amp up the look of your home is by introducing an interesting backsplash to your kitchen, bathroom, or your laundry walls.

We suggest:

  • DIY backsplash tiles. They are easy to fix and hardy.

  • Decals are an interesting option. For tips on how to use this interesting element in your home, click on this link.

  • Textured paint on your accent wall is great too.

Visual Space Expansion

The best way to visually expand your space is by adding mirrors to the décor. The reflection not only gives the impression of a larger space but adds intrigue as you can see the reflection of your artifacts or your artwork in the mirror.

We suggest:

  • Go for antique mirrors on your console table and foyer.

  • Add exciting standalone affairs to add oomph to your décor.

  • Wall-to-wall mirrors for a visual treat.

Wallpaper Adds Interest

Wallpapers are an interesting way to add dimension to your space. You can go for the floral way for a vintage look, or try strips or geometric patterns for an eclectic look.

We suggest:

  • Wallpaper on the accent wall in your bedroom or living room.

  • A mix and match of wainscoting and wallpaper are ideal for vintage appeal.

Statement Lighting

Lighting is like a waving witch’s wand. It can transform your space with the click of a switch. So, what are your options?

  • A quaint floor lamp for your reading chair.

  • A modern or vintage chandelier, depending on the décor.

  • A charming lampshade for your nightstand and end tables.

  • Gorgeous pendant lights for your dining table or kitchen island.
