Affordable Home Decorating Ideas

                                                  Affordable Home Decorating Ideas

     Now that the summer is over and the kids are off to school, maybe now is the perfect time to redecorate your home and give it a fresh, new look for the upcoming fall/winter season.  Looking in magazines and show homes can give you loads of home decorating ideas.  Unfortunately, not all of these designs are cost effective. Rather than squelching your desire for new home decor, look for affordable ways to mimic the expensive looks you love. The staples of any home decorating project are: paint, pillows, rugs and home accents. Use any of these items alone or combined for fabulous rooms ready for any of your home decorating ideas.
Bring on the Paint: For the cost of a few cans of paint and painting supplies, you can create the canvas for any home decorating idea imaginable. If your walls have been a color for quite some time, consider going back to white. You’ll notice new color nuances to your existing furniture and white gives a clean look to any room. Already white rooms gain a boost from a fresh coat to cover dingy walls or use a new shade to paint an accent wall.
Throw Around the Pillows: Family rooms of any style transform with the addition of a few pillows. Whatever home decorating idea inspired your room’s makeover wouldn’t have been the same without those well­ chosen pillows on the couch or vintage rocking chair. Use a variety of patterns in coordinating shades to add comfort for your family and an affordable change to the room’s look.
Walk on the Rugs: Don’t forget about the floor during your home decorating. Add a large rug under the kitchen table in vibrant colors to create a resting place for your eye in the midst of milky floor tiles or monochromatic linoleum flooring. You can use a flower arrangement created with the rug’s colors in mind on top of the table to tie it into the room.
     Consider an inexpensive rag rug for the living room or game room to keep a casual feel. The best part of this piece of home decor is being able to toss it in the washing machine instead of scrubbing out stains by hand.
Finish with Home Accents: The final touches in any home are what keep your home decorating ideas from looking out of place in your existing room. Remove family photos from various surfaces and condense them into multi ­picture frames to hang on your wall. Fill the newly created space with candles or a scented wax warmer to engage an extra sense in your home decor.
     With a little bit of creativity, your affordable home decorating ideas will make guests think you spent a fortune on creating the perfect room!
