No-Cost Decorating Ideas

Refresh and give your rooms a new look with these no-cost decorating ideas.

Rearrange the furniture
This will instantly change the look of any room. See if you can take pieces from one room and switch them out in another. Small side tables and accent furniture are pretty easy to move. If you normally have your furniture against the wall, bring it out toward the center. If everything is lined up straight, try turning things on the diagonal.

Clear out the clutter
Remove any unnecessary furniture and scale down the number of accessories.  This is a great way to give a room a new look.

Deep clean
You would be surprised at what a difference this can make. Wash the windows and window treatments, rugs and upholstery. Not only will this make a huge difference, it will also make your home smell nice.

Touch-up paint
Never underestimate the power of paint, even if it’s just touching things up. Making moldings and doors fresh again will go a long way towards refreshing the look of a room.

Change out your area rugs
Switching out the area rugs from one room to another will change the look of two rooms at once.

Arrange your books by color
Lining your books up by color rather than subject will provide new visual interest in the room. Plus, you may discover some favorite books that you’d forgotten about.

Switch out your accessories
Move accessories, including artwork, around to different rooms or just rearrange your shelves. This will have a big impact on a room.

As you can see, you don’t have to break the bank to decorate your home.
