Tips For Decorating on a Tight Budget

Everyone can use advice on how to save money while styling a home, and this article from Houzz focuses on just that. Whether you're putting down roots in a new space or are looking to change things up, these words of decorating wisdom will teach you how to get the most from what you purchase.

  • Bamboo blinds
  • Seagrass, sisal, and coir rugs
  • Black paper lampshades
  • White dishes

Use paint to add depth and style without breaking the bank
