6 home decor tips for anyone on a budget

26th Sep '18 • By Kaylyn Jeffrey

We at Service.com.au want you to love your home. However, sometimes we can’t always afford the home of our dreams straight away due to finances. We have some top decor tips for those of you on a budget.

1. Have a vision 

 

Better yet, create a vision board with how you want you home design to be. Cut out pictures of expensive looks and look to your dream home as a point of reference when you’re needing some decor inspiration. This will teach your mind what to look for when you’re on the hunt for your bargain home decor. 

2. Get the same look for less

Get inspired by top designers and then make it your mission to buy similar decor for less. In most cases, you can get extremely similar looking decor pieces to designer pieces for a fraction of the cost so shop around and research online. 

3. Use your network

You never know what someone you know is giving away or who is redecorating. Consider throwing up a post on your social media to let your network know you’re sprucing up your home and to let you know if anyone has some things they want to get rid of. Even if you are gifted a not-so-perfect decor item, you could potentially turn it into a beautiful piece with a bit of DIY love.

4. Vintage bargain shopping 

 

A great way to find amazing home decor while you’re on a budget, is to look around at your local vintage shops and markets. You never know when you’re going to find your perfect succulent or a handmade coffee table you just can’t live without. These items are usually locally made or well loved, meaning you can get quality home items for less.

5. Making the most of jars

 

Whether you’re buying pickles, jam or instant coffee, chances are you come into contact with an abundance of jars you can choose to keep or chuck. Next time you’re considering throwing away a jar, think again. These jars can make budget-friendly beautiful decor pieces. From using these jars for candle holders to flower or succulent vases, they make a perfect rustic indie decor piece in the home.

6. Nail DIY projects 

 

Use our top tips to guarantee a successful diy project to nail whatever DIY project you put your mind to. One of the hottest DIY trends happening at the moment is the mismatched trend. This simply means mismatching your furniture and colours, but still staying within a colour theme. For example, you could choose to have mismatching kitchen chairs or mismatched drawer colours. The key to nailing this look is to stay within a colour scheme whether that means an autumn colour scheme or a spring pastel theme. 

Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful home. Spruce up your home on a budget this spring with our money saving decor tips.
