The reality of decorating a new space is that it can cost a lot of money, but there are ways of getting around it. Although DIY projects can help cut down on spending, sometimes the cost of purchasing all the individual items can outweigh the results. Updating and repurposing your current decor is one way of getting around this. To help give you ideas on how this can be done, we’ve put together some ideas on how you can update your space without breaking the bank.
If you’re looking into upgrading your kitchen, one of the best things you can do is repainting your kitchen cabinets. Although it may not change their style, any guests that have seen your space before will think you have brand new cabinets. This trick can also work with doors. Painting a door may seem like a daunting task, but once finished will bring a new view to anyone walking in or out.
If you’re looking to update a bedroom, wallpaper can give the room an entirely different atmosphere. You don’t have to go all out either, a simple stripe or accent wall can change the feeling of the room entirely. Another great way to update with wallpaper is on vinyl blinds. Simply apply the wallpaper directly onto the blinds and give the windows a whole new look for less than half the price of replacing them.
Living in a digital age we’re taking photos constantly, but finding the right place to put them can be hard. One way of using them is to upgrade your existing coffee tables to become a photo table. All you will need for this project is a custom piece of glass cut to the size of your table. The best part of this decorating idea is that the photos can constantly be changed from season to season to bring a new feel to the table.
There are many ways you can repurpose old glass to help bring new life to your space. One simple trick to make any window pop is using colored glass bottles. Turn any window into a stained glass effect by simply setting them on the windowsill. Another great way to reuse old glass is to transform an old mirror. Simply apply a felt backing to any small mirror and it instantly becomes a tray that can be used in any room of the house. Add your favorite candles or art to your new tray and guests will be itching to copy your style.
