Sometimes it seems like the only rule to home decorating is “the more expensive, the better your taste.” Don’t let yourself get so caught up in your project that you forget to pay attention to the money leaving your bank account. When you don’t have a big budget it’s easy to get freaked out about decorating your home. There are a lot of things that you can use for decorating that don’t cost a lot of money. Here are a few ideas you can use to decorate your home beautifully and inexpensively. Rearrange Your Furniture. Choosing new locations for your furniture can be just the spruce you need to your decorating scheme. To get inspiration look through the books in the home decorating section of your local library. There is no rule that says a couch needs to make physical contact with a wall-move it closer to the center of the room. Don’t leave your bed where it is-move it to another wall or put it in the corner. Don’t point all your furniture at the tv-create an atmosphere for conversation by pointing your “seating” furnishings at each other. Let the television be an afterthought. Let your cookery serve as kitchen decoration instead of hiding it away. Repurposing your exiting furniture and belongings can be a great way to create a new look without spending a dime. You don’t have to fill up every inch of decorating space in your home. A home that has decorations on every surface can be hard to live in-and it creates more work (think of the dusting!) for the home owner. Don’t overcrowd the pieces you really love. Instead of placing ten knickknacks on a shelf; stick to two or three. Many people find it easier to live in a home that is not overly decorated. If you fill a wall with photos and paintings, you won’t know where to look when you want to just sit and relax. White space is necessary for the decorating scheme to be complete. Experienced decorators will tell you that it is okay to leave some space free in every room. A great idea for people who love photography is to print photos that are open sourced on sites like Flickr. The work that is found through stock photo sites or through sites like Flickr is usually considered “open source” so you are almost always free to print the photos yourself or have them printed by professionals. Filling your home with wonderful photography doesn’t have to be difficult if you know where to look for it. Using your own photos is another way to decorate with photography. Simply download some of the free photo editing and graphic design software that is out there and turn your own snapshots into works of art. You can have a lot of fun and save yourself lots of money by editing your own photos. It is easy to get bogged down by the idea that decorating is expensive but the truth is that it does not have to be expensive at all. Decorating ideas are everywhere-just look at the homes of your friends. “I can make this happen for way less money” is a good mindset to have when you see a decorating scheme you like. It’ll soon become apparent that you don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to decorate your home. Decorating can even be done for free! My real business is trading penny stocks.
