5 Budget-Friendly Styling Tips for Your Home

Styling your home need not be expensive. Here are a few ideas that you can try


By using items that you already have and by practicing creativity and resourcefulness, you can give your home a new look.

Here are ways to transform your space without breaking the bank.

Hang decor at the edge of the wall

Jazz up one side of the wall by hanging décor. Doing this adds drama to the space compared to hanging it at the center. Pick a stylish piece of artwork or wall clock that suits your space and see how it magically transforms the space.

Place potted plants in empty spaces

Thinking of ways on how you can decorate blank spaces such as entryways? Potted plants are inexpensive decor that can do the trick! Whether it is real or artificial, plants can automatically reverse the mood of any space.

Opt for a stylish rug

While some rugs are quite expensive, stores like Mandaue Foam and a couple of department stores carry printed rugs that are quite cheap. Add depth to your living room by setting a printed area rug under the sofa.

Add printed throw pillows

Do you have a plain sofa in your bedroom? Add splashes of color and prints to liven up the piece and your space. You may opt to hand paint your throw pillows or upcycle old pieces.

RL Tip: If you don't have time for a quick DIY project, you may visit H&M Home! They have a vast collection of inexpensive pillow covers that cost around P300 to P800.
