5 Home Styling Hacks that Won’t Break the Bank

5 Home Styling Hacks that Won’t Break the Bank

Your home is your happy place. It’s where you spend time with family, friends, and create memories, so finding the right décor to suit your home is not something that should be swept under the rug, so to speak.

It’s easy to get caught up in images from glossy magazines and reveals on ‘The Block’, but the truth is, you don’t need a huge budget to decorate your home with style and class. All you need are a few styling hacks to get you started.

Add a pop of colour

One of the best ways to spice up any room is with a few bold items, especially set against white or pastel walls. Small, adorable and colourful homewares like lamps, vases, candle holders and throws are perfect for adding a little colour, texture and warmth to any room in the house.

Mix and match

Every room needs a signature piece. It draws the eye as a focal point and creates a statement. If you’re on a budget, splash out on just one expensive piece like a rug or coffee table, and decorate with inexpensive accessories like succulents or coffee table books. This means you can create a room with a designer look that won’t break the budget.

Dare for DIY

Good home styling doesn’t have to cost a fortune, and one of the best ways to make sure you don’t go over budget is to make your own expensive-looking pieces from inexpensive items. Start with a simple flat-pack table and use copper or bronze spray-paint to transform it into a daring accent piece. Or, get handy with a sewing machine and turn unwanted clothing into cushion covers that will brighten a room with pattern and colour.

Keep it timeless

Some home décor trends come and go, but then there are others that have stood the test of time. Choosing timeless items and colours is a great way to stay within budget because you won’t have to constantly update your look every season. Stick to a muted palette, including whites and creams, that act as the perfect backdrop for every colour. Invest in a tall rectangular glass vase that can be used to house seasonal blooms, Christmas decorations or even shells and pebbles. Finally, you can’t go astray with framed family photos arranged artfully on a mantle or dresser.

Get crafty

Artwork for your home can come with a hefty price tag, but with a little creativity, you can create charming wall art on a low budget. Frame those travel postcards that have been piling up in a drawer, re-paint a cheap canvas, or make a collage of meaningful photos. This will create a look that’s both contemporary and personal.
