8 DIY Home Decor Budget Tips You May Not Have Thought Of!
Looking for some inexpensive DIY home decor ideas? Well, here are 8 of the simplest home decor ideas on a budget to give you the best bang for both your time and buck!
So, let’s get ready to start and finish that room decor project without cutting corners just for the sake of going under the budget.
Instead, let’s visit some clever home decor tips that you may have possibly ever considered. Below are eight inexpensive decorating ideas to think about for the next makeover.
1. Grab The Tools
If you great with tools and handy work, then make the things yourself!
So instead of hiring a painter for $200, paint the room yourself. You can easily grab the tin of paint for around $20.
Other DIY projects can include making your own DIY bed frame to save you plenty. Doing this alone will save you around $500 for a top notch bed frame!
If you enjoy creating your own beautiful stuff with your hands, then it is the perfect way to get your creative mojo going and save money.
2. Stick to a Budget And Plan
When starting a project, never ignore your budget and plan.
Start a list with reminders on what needs to be done, hat not to do, when it has to be done, and the the supplies and tiems required. If need be, shop around to get the best price and look for alternatives – things that you are able to afford.
For example, need a new rug, but the rug you want is over $200. Instead of mulling over it, check out second hand shops, thrift stores, social media and online for options?
3. Sketch the Layout
Grab a pencil and pad, and start sketching and draw out what’s in your head onto the paper.
Simply by illustrating your vision out on paper makes it simpler and easier for that finishing touch like arranging the furniture and decor from wher you would like to sit and dine in the kitchen, where a littler nook should be in the bedroom.
We suggest that you keep proper measurements to ensure your dream decor can fit in the room and stay within the budget. You can grab more home decor ideas by browsing through home magazines and books, Pinterest, real estate websites and hotel websites for creative inspirations.
4. Repurpose Your Items
Why not start with your own home, and find items that have been hidden away in the attic or basement. You can really find gorgeous things that can be reused. Even better if you find an item already on display in one room, why not move it to another spot. Simply by moving things around makes it fun and will not cost you more than a penny.
Or you can add some more personality with more DIY home decorating projects.
5. Don’t Discard Everything – Just Yet
This is a home decor budget that should never be ignored – prioritize.
When on a journey of home decor transformation, don’t throw everything out to start a clean, blank slate with an empty room. Where’s the fun in that when you have no inspiration to work off it. An empty room can have a negative impact on your creative mojo. And, if you are redecorating a few rooms, just work on one room project at a time.
Instead of tossing things that you might possibly use later, box them up, and place the items in the garage or even a storage area til you are finished.
6. Be Creative
Get more creative inspirations from online videos like Youtube and even Pinterest. Even home show programs are worth watching too.
These programs can teach you different ideas and trends for outside thinking. For example – did you know that in order to have more space, some tiny homes have a storage space under the floors and in the staircase? Now that is thinking outside the box.
So do not limit yourself due to lack of budget or space.
7. Go With Your Gut
If you feel that something isn’t right or you are second guessing yourself, then pass it up. For example, if you think the tile floor is best suited for the living room, but lack he experience, simply paying for a professional service is a better investment.
If you are unsure of anything, don’t be hesitate to call on the pros. Getting it done right is a good investment and will cost you less than a big DIY blunder.
Just imagine the time and money wasted by ripping up the floor and redoing it again. Or, worse still, having the floor looking lack-luster from a poor DIY workmanship in a newly renovated room.
8. Get Items You Love
Avoid impulse shopping – this is one that will break any budget in any DIY home decor project. Again, start a list of things you need and stay the course.
Don’t be sucked in by any pretty curtains or rug … or anything that you “can’t possibly live without”. Remember the thing is … impulse buying is only short lived and won’t always turn out well.
Consider each purchase really carefully, and Ask yourself, “will this fit well into me home decor design?” and “do I really need it?”!
Never, ever, veer off track during a project. However, at times a good burst of creative inspirations may come to you at the strangest moments.
Putting It All Together Nicely!
A good budget and plan is the key to any DIY home decor. But, you can stretch a $1,000 budget if you can get creative and think outside the square.
And remember, you local hardware store has to be first port of call. As well, try to use your abilities and tools .. and learn to make your items with top notch materials for less.
