Fast and Cheap Home Decor Tactics Wed, 26 May 2010 15:03:08 +0000 If your home is starting to look like it could use a face lift, don’t despair. Even if you don’t have a ton of time or money, there are some pretty quick and inexpensive home improvement and decorating activities you can do in order to spruce things up. Some of the simplest techniques can produce truly amazing results. In most cases, you don’t even need to bring in a contractor to do a bunch of construction and run the risk of a homeowners insurance claim.


There are tons of things you can do with furniture to breathe new life into your home. Sometimes, simply rearranging the furniture can really change things around. You might instead think about buying some pre-owned furniture. Used furniture is a relatively inexpensive solution. Try to go with furniture that comes from a non-smoking home. Make sure you thoroughly inspect any used furniture to make sure it’s sturdy, and smell it to make sure it’s not moldy. A couple of furniture accent pieces, such as end tables or plant stands, can go a long way toward brightening up a room and changing its feel.


Plants can help your home out in a number of ways. To begin with, they help to purify the air inside your home. They can also add a certain amount of color and as well as ambiance to a dark and drab room. Putting in some flowering houseplants can really give you a peaceful feeling, especially in those colder, drab, dreary winter months. Just make sure that you know what kinds of plants you’re getting into. Some plants may be poisonous to your hose pets, for example. Know which plants should be situated where your pets or small children won’t be able to get to them.


Paint is one of the least expensive ways to redecorate and improve a room. The process of deciding which colors should go where can be fun, as well, and really lets you express your creativity. Make sure to invest in a good quality paint, as a cheap paint will go on much more thin and require more coats, and in the end it won’t look very good. Don’t be shy about picking your paint colors, either. Consider the fact that a bold color can evoke certain emotions, make a room seem smaller or larger, and even provide a sense of peace.
