Don't drain your bank to make your home more beautiful. Start with simple changes, such as adding accent pieces, area rugs, or even pops of color with throw blankets. You needn't purchase entirely new furniture to create a home that stands out. Remember, the smallest changes create the biggest impact.
Sometimes purchasing new furniture is simply out of the question, due to finances or other reasons. If that's the case, consider picking up a few accent pieces to add color and contrast to the furniture you already own.
For the living room, start with accent pillows, upgraded lamp shades, or even a ceiling fan upgrade. In the dining area, your space might benefit from a rug, colored placements and candles, or wall art. In the bedroom, throw pillows and blankets are a fun way to add a pop of color and texture to your space.
Creating plant terrariums is an easy, inexpensive way to add life and beauty to your home. Succulents are easy to care for an are low-maintenance plants.
A small glass bowl can be purchased at your local dollar store for a buck and can be filled with dirt from outdoors and then a succulent placed inside for a quick burst of green. Place these on floating shelves, on your countertops, or even in your entryway.
Cheap Area Rugs
Area rugs are expensive, but not if you look in the right spot. Inexpensive area rugs can be found at thrift stores and consignment shops and even on online classified websites for a fraction of the cost.
Use area rugs to designate a space, divide off rooms without a physical barrier, or just to add a pop of color and tie a room together.
DIY Wall Art
Create your own wall art by purchasing some paint and canvas. You can make homemade stencils using inspiration from Pinterest, or even just let your kids (and your pets) go crazy on a canvas and hang it on your wall.
Add a Pop of Color
Adding pops of color here and there are ways to add contrast and make the room really stand out.
Brightly colored objects or shiny objects are one way to achieve this.
Make Use of Natural Light
A bright home is a beautiful home.
Even your bathroom is not exempt from this rule.
Some bathrooms do not have windows, but the ones that do can benefit from privacy panes to allow natural light in while still retaining privacy.
Implement MirrorsMirrors can make smaller rooms appear more spacious.
They also add a decorative element that wall art cannot. Because mirrors tend to be expensive, picking up a dozen 8 x 11 mirrors from your local dollar tree and hanging them together is an easy way to save on costs.

An upgrade to your light fixtures and/or ceiling fans is an easy way to change the look and feel of your home without spending too much money.
Lighting can make a huge difference in a room.
