Beauty on a Budget: Low Cost Interior Decorating

Beauty on a Budget: Low Cost Interior Decorating

Mar 25, 2024Richard Woods

It doesn’t take a lot of money to turn your home or office into an attractive, comfortable place to be. In fact, in many cases, you can reuse or repurpose many of the items you already have and just add a few feature pieces to breathe new life into your space.

In this post, we’ll share some tips for interior decorating on a budget. We think that every home or office can be stylish and functional, even if you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on decor. Let’s get started.

Paint an Accent Wall

Painting is one of the least expensive updates you can make to your home or office. If you don’t want to spend the time painting the entire interior, consider painting one accent wall. In most cases, you won’t spend much on the paint, and painting a single wall won’t take much time.

When you’re just painting one wall, choose a colour that pops. In an office, you might want to paint the wall behind the reception desk to help lead guests to their initial destination. In a home, choose an accent wall based on an area you want to highlight.


This tip doesn’t require any money at all, but it can make a big difference. Before you start thinking about what to buy for your home or office, consider what to get rid of. Getting rid of dated, worn out or damaged items will give the room a clean slate.

You might be surprised at how updated your home or office looks simply by getting rid of old items. With bare walls, desks and shelves, you can get a good idea of what kind of items you’d like to find to give the space a new style.

Repurpose and Recycle

Instead of spending a lot of money on expensive decorator items, consider items that are repurposed or recycled. Perhaps you have some items in storage that have never been used as decor before. Try them out in your new, decluttered area and see if they bring a fresh vibe to your home or office.

Look at flea markets or second-hand stores for decorative items. Just because someone else got tired of looking at a painting doesn’t mean it’s not right for you. And by purchasing used decorative items, you’ll save a great deal of money.

Install an Artificial Green Wall

Plants enhance any room, but live plants can be expensive and difficult to maintain. If you like the look of plants but don’t want to water and fertilise them, consider installing an artificial green wall.

An artificial green wall is stylish, easy to install, and perfect for small spaces. You don’t have to feed or water these plants, and they’ll always look great. Nothing updates a home or office quite like a green wall. It’s modern, comfortable, and effortlessly stylish.

Customise Basic Items

If you want a luxury look on a shoestring budget, consider customising standard pieces yourself. For example, you can iron trim on to basic white curtain panels for a custom look or add wallpaper to the interior of a bookcase. These are simple, low-cost additions, but they can turn a boring item into something extraordinary.

So there you have it. By clearing out the old, painting an accent wall, acquiring some new-to-you second-hand pieces, installing an artificial green wall and customising basic items you can turn a tired home or office into a stylish haven.
