If you’re like many homeowners trying to save money on home interior design can be a challenge. From choosing colors, and fabrics to picking the right decorative items to make every room look fabulous is an art. However, there are some tried and true ways to keep your eye on the trends and to save money while making your home feel and look fabulous. Here are some easy ways to create interiors you love without breaking your budget!

Easy Ways to Save Money on your Home Interior Design

Consider recycling and reusing for your decorating ideas

One of the best ways to save money is to reuse or recycle old items into new uses throughout your home. From turning an old door into a coffee table or using an broken ladder leaned up against a bathroom wall to hang bath linen, there is no limit to where your recycling and reusing efforts can lead. If you are a DIY’er and enjoy the challenge of making up new uses for items we invite you to peruse Pinterest or other crowdsourcing home decor image sites that give you ideas. If you are an antiques-goer or enjoy yard/garage sales, these are other places to grab home decorating ideas that are cheap but can be turned into treasure with a little dusting off or a coat of paint!

Paint your home interior walls and add decals

Believe it or not there isn’t a less expensive way to transform your interiors and deliver a high level of visual impact than painting. Whether you choose to just add an accent wall to a dining room or you decide to transform your child’s nursery with a burst of color and a wall mural, painting and wallpaper can transform any room within a few hours of your weekend. If you aren’t handy with a paintbrush find a handyperson or professional painter that will help you out with the job. Also look to adding adhesive decals to your walls for gorgeous pictures and motifs that give your room depth and character. These wall ideas will help save money and can be changed seasonally or whenever you get tired of the decor theme.

When visiting your favorite market take a walk through the fresh floral areas and admire the spring colors and take in the fresh aromas. Bring spring into your bedroom with colorful bedding and spring motifs such as flowers, trees, animals and sea life. There is nothing more organic than fresh sheets so consider decorating with organic cotton bed linen and choose soft greens, blues, yellows and light browns to bring the feeling of spring into your bed. If your home still has a winter chill, layer your bedding with spring colored blankets to keep you warm until spring officially arrives.

Hang Spring Artwork with your Bedroom Design Ideas:
