Twig Bath Hardware 300x300 How to Save Money on DecoratingWouldn’t it be great to decorate a whole house or cabin without any budget limitations? New rustic furniture, luxurious bedding, all new lighting, kitchen decor–the whole nine yards? Unfortunately, especially in this particular economic climate, that’s not a reality for most of us. But the good news is that there are some recession-friendly ways to redecorate. It just takes a little creativity.

  • This post from Freshome.com suggests extensive research to dig up the best deal on any particular item, as well as selling your old décor to put toward getting new stuff.
  • According to InteriorDesignDigest.com, you can pinch your decorating pennies by setting and sticking to a budget and finding creative ways to reuse or repurpose items. Instead of buying a kitchen island, for example, do you have a desk or occasional table that could serve the same purpose?
  • Also keep in mind that small details can give a room a completely new look. New hardware and switch plates may not cost a lot, but add a lot of style to a room.
  • And of course, there are coupons. Websites like MoneySavingQueen.com serve up printable coupons and money saving tips. Hey, with the cash you save on everyday items, you might be able to splurge on something nice for the house.

Finding home décor on a limited budget might seem like a dreary task, but if you keep your eyes peeled for steals and deals, look for new uses for items you already have, and generally save money wherever you can, you just might end up with appealing, fun décor and a happy pocketbook as well.
