Home décor can be so much fun but can also be overwhelming when you don't know where to start. There are different ways to decorate your home and express yourself creatively! But don't worry - we've got some tips on how to do it without breaking the bank or spending hours upon hours DIY-ing everything from scratch. 

In this post, we'll show you some simple ways that anyone can add a little more personality (and possibly even function) to their homes with just a few affordable pieces of furniture or accessories. Keep reading for easy hacks that will make your place look Pinterest-worthy in no time flat.


Soft cushions can decorate a sofa, chair, or bed. You can buy them at any home store.
You may buy just one cushion for your sofa or chair, or you could buy several different colored ones and mix and match them on the same furniture piece (or on every piece of furniture in your room). Cushions are also helpful if you want to change things up from time to time—you can switch out old cushions for new ones without having to repaint or refinish anything.


Rugs and Carpets

Rugs and carpets are the most versatile elements in home décor. You can use them to define spaces or rooms, create a focal point in a room, and create a cozy atmosphere.
For example:
  • Rugs can define the space between two pieces of furniture in your living room by placing one on each side of the couch or chairs.
  • You could also place rugs at each end of your bed to help with soundproofing if you live near heavy traffic or loud neighbors. This is especially helpful if you're not allowed to hang heavy curtains from your windows because it'll keep out even more sound than curtains!
  • Carpets come into play when you want something soft underfoot while walking around your house, making it feel more like a home than just another place you spend time.


Plants and Flowers

Plants and flowers are an excellent way to add color and life to your home. They can be used in various ways, from adding texture and depth to a room to adding height for the most dramatic effect. If you want to create a warm ambiance in your living space, consider using plants from succulents or cacti (or both), as they emit negative ions, which have been proven to relieve stress and promote relaxation.
There are different types of plants for different kinds of homes:
  • Native plants will thrive without much help from you; these include ferns and some grasses like bamboo!
  • Cacti are drought-resistant, requiring minimal watering; remember not to overwater them, either.

Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are the unsung heroes of home decor. They add texture and color but can often be overlooked in favor of larger pieces like rugs or paintings. But if you have a neutral couch, adding throw pillows is a great way to add interest without being overwhelming. Throw pillows are also super versatile; they can add patterns in a room full of solids or stand out on their own when used on an otherwise busy piece of furniture (like this one).

Wall Decor

The simplest way to create a focal point in your room is by hanging a large piece of art, such as a painting or photograph. You can also hang framed pictures and other decorative pieces like maps, artwork, and postcards on the wall. If you're looking for unique wall décor ideas, consider hanging a mural or using wall decals (decals are easier than they might look!).
Decorating with maps is another unique idea that will help define each room in your home. If you have an old map lying around and want to reuse it instead of throwing it out, use it to cover your walls! Maps add character and lend themselves well to any style of décor because they can be used for traditional to modern chic designs. Another option is putting together an entire themed "map" wall with different maps on one large canvas—this works exceptionally well when creating an attractive focal point in an otherwise plain room!


Window Treatments

Window treatments can be expensive, especially if you have a lot of windows in your home. So why not make them yourself? Not only will it save money, but it's also an excellent way to get creative with your home décor. There are different ways you can use to create window treatments. Here are a few ideas:
  • Curtains: Because they are simple and inexpensive, curtains are one of the most popular types of window treatments.

They come in all different styles and sizes, so there is something out there that matches the style of your home. You can buy curtains online or at any department store (and even some discount stores). If you want something more unique, try searching Pinterest for inspiration!
  • Blinds: Another popular option is blinds which come in many different styles such as Venetian (slatted), vertical traverse, or horizontal traverse, depending on what kind of look fits your space best! Blinds also work well with other elements like shutters, adding texture and depth to any room design scheme


Many things can be done with the most essential elements to decorate your home on a tight budget.
The key is to create contrast and layers of texture. You will also want to think about how the items coordinate or contrast with one another. Different textures, for example, will create a more attractive look in your home than just using all smooth surfaces or all rough surfaces.
