Budget home design ideas: how to decorate your home on a budget

Now is a better time than ever to finally get around to redecorating your home and styling on a budget. 

There are so many ways you can rejuvenate your home on a budget.

Check out these eight budget home design ideas and start your home decorating project today!

1. Paint!

Pick up some paint testers and follow your favourite home inspo looks or go wild on with your own creativity. 

Repainting your home or creating a feature wall is a great first step toward decorating on a budget.

2. Accessorise, but make it affordable

When it comes to accessories, this is where you can save heaps.

Depending on the looks you’re going for, you can find perfect accessories for affordable prices.

Check out these gorgeous coastal style placemats and ceramic bowls that look a million bucks – and no one will know you got them for less than a bottle of wine!

3. Repurpose what you already have

If you’re on a tight budget, it’s a good idea to take a look around your house and see what you can revamp or repurpose in another room.

You might have been handed down some old pieces of furniture or old lamps and all they need is a fresh coat of paint or a new lampshade.

Get creative and repurpose things in a way you’ve never thought of before.

4. Use black accessories for that luxe feel

You can never go wrong with black accessories that bring a feel of luxury to any room.

Try some black luxe glass jars on the mantlepiece or black and white tapas bowls in the kitchen.

5. Get Down and Dirty with some DIY

DIY projects are not only incredibly affordable but they always result in a sense of achievement when you create something beautiful yourself!

So, before you break the bank on a $300 brand new coastal style lamp, consider what you can do yourself for a fraction of the price. 

We bet you’ll be glad you did!

6. Pops of colour to bring life to a room

You’d be surprised how much a pop of colour brings to a room.

Whether it’s a large feature piece or just a small accessory, splashes of colour make all the difference.
Try incorporating small and bright features like a colourful fruit bowl for the kitchen counter or a bright coloured throw for the bedroom.

7. Go Digging for Treasure

You never know what you might find when you go digging…

There are always great deals on preloved furniture and home decor on platforms like Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree.

Or take a trip to the local markets and nearest Vinnies store to find some treasure for a quarter of the price.

8. Add some greenery

Plant features never fail to bring a sense of freshness and liveliness to a home.
You can pick up second-hand plants from almost all second-hand platforms or try plant-inspired home decor like a Monsteria placemat or tropical leaf runner for the table.
