If your house doesn’t inspire you, change it! We give you many cheap decoration ideas so you can find the ones that best suit your needs.
The Fibers Also Decorate
Take a look at this idea, a round fiber rug hanging on the wall above a console full of warmth and a relaxed air. Easy impossible! You can achieve a similar result with hanging baskets or hats. The rug comes from Miv Interiores (€95).
Upholster The Headboard Yourself
Tired of your headboard? Try upholstering it. Choose a fabric you like and staple it to the back. You can coordinate the colors of its pattern with the bedding and even make a matching cushion.
Curtains On The Porch
If you hang some vaporous curtains, if possible in white tones, linen or cotton on the porch, and you will have privacy and a more welcoming air. At Ikea you can find 145 x 300 cm cotton curtains for €40.
A Corner Of Plants
Gather several plants in the same corner to create a more impressive “little oasis” effect. Find a bright corner and create several levels with plants of different sizes and heights. Also play with different pots.
A Great Mirror Never Fails
This mirror on the dining room wall creates a false window that doubles the space and multiplies the light. Choose the mirror in proportion to the table. The quarters give it a plus of style. It is a Cuqui Olmedo design.
A roll of wallpaper is enough for you to redecorate that corner. You find them from about €30. If it has a lot of character, like this floral print by William Morris, save it for a small area.
Renew The Cushions
The covers are very easy to change and there is a variety of prices, also “low cost”. To combine plains and prints, the trick is that they share a color and there is a large print.
Change The Frames
This really is a cheap idea to decorate, and it is not necessary to buy anything. Move the boxes around and make a new composition with the ones you already have, playing with the sizes. Or look for prints that you already have or even fabrics and scarves, and renew the paintings with them.
The walls, a door or even the closet will look like new with moldings. Orac Decor’s are easy to install and allow you all kinds of designs. They are fixed with a special glue and can be painted (from €17/m).
Restore And Release
Give that old piece of furniture a second chance. You can strip it, change the handles, paint it… There are stripping kits with everything you need from around €30. See how to paint a wooden piece of furniture.
Change Sofa Covers
No matter how hard you try to create the perfect atmosphere in your living room, a worn or old-fashioned sofa creates an uncared-for image that can ruin everything. Why buy a new sofa out of your budget? If you are looking for cheap decoration ideas, have you thought about updating it with some new sofa covers? You have many options, they even sell them tailored to the most popular models (for example, from IKEA).
Upgrade The Furniture
Do you think that your furniture no longer fits the decorative style you want to achieve? Do you feel that they lack personality? Do they seem too dark or do you feel that they are outdated? Don’t worry, your pocket doesn’t need to suffer to make a change. Take a look at all these easy ideas to renew your old furniture .
Play With Light
In this, the countries of the North have a great advantage over us: Accustomed to having to take advantage of every last ray of light, they handle interior lighting like no one else and use it to create different environments. If you want to imitate them, don’t limit yourself to placing a single lamp on the ceiling: it creates annoying shadows and sometimes produces flat light scenarios that can remind of an operating room or a workshop. Place different points of light of various intensities at different heights to modify the atmosphere according to the activity you do. Don’t forget to add a low, warm light to create a cozy atmosphere.
