5 Marvelous Cheap Home Decor Ideas
Hey there! We have your 5 marvelous ideas on cheap home decor. You are here for a reason, so let's get started!
Going with a minimal style is a great idea for those who feel like their home is cluttered! Minimalism is excellent because it is currently on trend and can make you feel like your home is spotless. It leaves us without the need for trinkets or ornate decor and only what is necessary. The downside of this style is that it can create a sterile, hospital-like, and unfeeling environment. You can avoid this by adding a few personal items like photos of family, possibly some potted plants, maybe a few personal value items here and there, and a rug under your couch. Remember not to go overboard with this style, and it may save you a lot of money while keeping your home stylish.
If you are a free spirit, you may enjoy the Bohemian (Boho) style. This style has a down-to-earth vibe that will help your wallet if done correctly.
To do this style to save you money, look to the Goodwill or other second-hand stores. Often enough, you may find vintage, unique, and one-off creations at a bargain. These vintage trinkets cost less than those in stores and may help you with your decor. The downside to this is that there is a difference between vintage and outdated. For the Boho style to work for you, make sure that your selections are more on the adventurous/trendy side and not something questionable to your style. Looking for more about this style? Click here.
What is great about this is that every style has a casual version. Traditional, Transitional, Farmhouse, Modern, basically anything! Going casual doesn't have to mean shabby, but if done incorrectly, it will be. That is why we are here to help! If you want to do this correctly, it is best to stay with a simple yet clean color palette. Go 90% with a neutral color like white, then go 10% with vibrant color. You can also go 80% neutral and 20% vibrant color, but I wouldn't stray too far from these proportions as these have been proven in Color Theory to be more pleasing.

Avoid heavy patterns for the casual version of your home style to work.
If you are looking for a style that saves you money without being Boho, Farmhouse is an exceptional alternative. It also happens to be the favored style amongst Americans from recent years, and even most Architects are building homes to be better suited for this style for 2020. We have many tips for the Farmhouse style, but these two blogs will cover everything you need:
You may ask, "Why should I read about milk paint?" Well, I will tell you why. Milk paint isn't new, but it is an astronomically inexpensive method of making old objects look new. Generally, old items are overly worn and depressing; however, it generates a familiar yet new feel when you apply milk paint. It costs pennies on the dollar compared to your average house paint. If you wanted to, you could make it yourself, saving yourself even more money.
Decorate with Your Passion
Decorate with your passion? What does that mean? Well, all it means is to decorate your home with items of personal value. If you love playing the guitar, and have the extra space in your living room, put it in a corner instead of the closet! Love plants? Show the world how much you love plants by placing an indoor palm tree by the window. Make your hobby a home decorating attribute. Some people even build their homes around their pets. Some who love their cats create a wall staircase made from shelving for them to climb. There is no need to clutter the space, but adding a few items can make a difference in making your room look like yours.
