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.

Save cash and pick up these home decor basics at mass retailers:

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

Use paint to add depth and style without breaking the bank

Painting an accent wall can be a clever way to add richness to a space, especially when you choose a sophisticated neutral. Warm gray goes with almost any color palette and works especially well as a backdrop for simple wall art.
