Maybe you just moved into a new place or you’re feeling a little out of place in your own home. Either way, it’s upsetting to have an empty home that doesn’t fit your personality and needs.
Fortunately, it’s really easy to amp up your house and make it feel like more of a home, even on a shoestring budget.
With a few simple decor changes, you can easily turn your house into a home that you feel comfortable living in and feel like it belongs to you.
Find some Pinterest inspiration
The key to turning your house into a home using inexpensive decor is all in the details. The first step in making this work is to focus on a design plan and then execute it on a budget.
Focus on the priorities: what needs the most work and what part of the home is most important to you?
Get some inspiration from sites like Pinterest.
Look through interesting ideas and figure out which ones are doable under your budget and then just go for it!
Here are some tips on how to turn your house into a home without breaking the bank:
Become a Plant Mom
Plants help on so many different levels. First and foremost, they bring life into a home.
They also help you have something to take care of, so that way you have to be considerate of your space and responsibilities.
They also do a great job at brightening up a room—who doesn’t want a splash of green in their living or dining room?
Additionally, certain types of plants will purify the air, making your space cleaner and healthier for you to live in.
Plants can be inexpensive if you know where to look, and come in all different shapes, sizes, and care levels, so you can always find the right one to fit your home.
Get a New Doormat
The outside of your house is just as important as the inside.
It’s yours and people’s first impression of your home, so why not make it personalized and fun?
A good doormat will let people know who you are before they even know you or enter your home. This list of funny doormats is a great place to look for inspiration.
Finding a great doormat to welcome guests (and strangers) to your home really sets the tone for what kind of household you live in.
It gives people an idea of your personality before they even step through the threshold.
Plus, who doesn’t want to make random visitors laugh a little? It’s a win-win!
Make Some DIY Wall Art
You’re walking around the mall and you see a piece of wall art that you really love. Instead of spending money on it, why not try to make your own inspired version at home, for a cheaper price?
This way, you are saving money, decorating your home in your style, and displaying your own art!
For example, something that is really hot right now is macrame wall hangings. With a few supplies from a craft store, and a Youtube tutorial, it is easy to make one for yourself instead of spending the money on an overpriced piece at the store.
Another great option for personalizing your space is to make a photo collage or frame some photos of people and places that you love. This way your DIY wall art has an extra personal touch.
Adorning your walls with personal projects and cool art that you made yourself will be the most accurate reflection of who you are. This will instantly make your home feel more personally styled and will bring all of the good vibes of who you are into your space!
Wall art made with soft fabric is also a great way to soundproof a room cheaply.
The best way to turn your house into a home is to personalize and fill your space with things that you love and care for.
Having plants to open the space and clear the air, getting a fresh and funny new doormat, and making some personalized wall art are great places to start—and great on your budget.
These small, inexpensive steps will help you to feel more at home in your own space and show visitors who you are as a person!
