Paint Sure, painting takes time, but it can totally change the way a room looks. This is one of the simplest ways to revamp a room on a budget because it’s easy and a gallon of paint will run you less than $40. Start by grabbing some paint chips at your local home improvement store. Tape them to your walls and take a day or two to decide which one looks best. Then, invite your friends over for a painting party and you’ll have a new room you love.


Rearrange the Furniture

Rearrange the Furniture If your budget is $0, simply moving around the existing furniture can make your room look different in just minutes. Try moving your bed to the opposite wall or switching which side of the room your dresser is on. Flip flop your couch and entertainment center or rotate your kitchen table 180 degrees. The best thing about this idea – if you don’t like it, you haven’t spent any money and you can try something different.


Cover the Furniture

Cover the Furniture If you’re tired of your gray couch or yellow comforter, buy something new. It’s cheaper than furniture! Try a deep red or dark brown cover on your couch and test out a patchwork quilt on your bed. Put cheery cushions on your kitchen chairs or toss a turquoise blanket on your white armchair. It’s easy and fun!


Change Rugs and Pillows

Change Rugs and Pillows They don’t cost as much as a complete redo and you can often find them on sale at department stores like Macy’s or Target. Simply switching from a low-pile white rug in your living room to a plush black one can really make a big change. For just a few dollars, you can buy a yard or two of fabric at the store and recover your throw pillows in just minutes. If you can’t sew, ask a friend or simply buy new pillows when you see them for a steal.


Mix and Match Décor

Mix and Match Décor There’s no rule that says a set has to stay in one place. If you have a few great vases, consider separating them and grouping one with photos and knick-knacks on your living room bookshelf and putting a few blooms in another and displaying it on your kitchen table. Mix and match picture frames and souvenirs from your trips to bring your personality into each of your home’s rooms.


Get New Wall Art

Get New Wall Art If you’ve had the same Monet print hanging in your bathroom since you were a teenager, it’s time to get something new. Scout online and at craft stores for inexpensive posters you can pop into frames for a classy, but unique look on your walls. Vintage movie posters or antique food labels are fun ideas that you won’t see at many other houses. Frame photos you love and mix them in.


Buy Something You Never Would

Buy Something You Never Would If you’re like me, you’ve passed up something that intrigues you because you can’t think where you’d put it. If it’s cheap, go ahead and buy it. Save your receipt, though. Bring the item home and try it out in different places. You might find that a Chinese screen looks awesome in your guest bathroom or a large porcelain elephant is a fun way to hold a potted plant. If you can’t figure out what to do with the item, return it and buy something else to try.

Sometimes redoing a room is so overwhelming that I just skip it. When I do pull myself together and do something, I always love it. What’s your favorite way to bring new life into a room?
