How to Redecorate Your Home for Zero Dollars

If you have fallen out of love with the way your home is decorated, it is time to freshen up the space! Especially since we are all spending even more time at home, it is important that you enjoy the way your living spaces are set up. The one downside to redecorating, however, is that it can become quite costly. That is why your friends at Handler Homes want to share some easy redecorating tips that can make a big impact on a room but zero impact on your wallet.

Spruce Up Bare Walls

One thing that is sure to bring some visual interest to a plain wall is art! But you do not have to run out and buy canvases to have art in your home. Instead take inventory of what you already have and try to imagine what could be nicely displayed. Things such as hat collections or woven baskets can look beautiful mounted on a wall.

Rearrange Furniture

Rearranging furniture is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Simply moving a sofa or a bed from one end of the room to the other can create the fresh new look you have been wanting.

Adorn the Dining Table

Since the dining table is one of the main focal points of the kitchen and living area, dressing it up can make a big difference visually. Pull out that table runner even when guests are not expected. Fill a vase with lovely flowers as a centerpiece. Set up your candles. All these small things can transform a utilitarian piece of furniture into a display piece.

Give Old Furniture a Makeover

You know that old, ugly piece of furniture you have that you have been meaning to take to Goodwill? Why not give it one last chance at life in your home by giving it a makeover? Most homeowners and DIYers have a can of paint or two lying around that needs to be used up anyway. Giving boring, worn out furniture a new paint job can transform it into something that fits your current style preferences.

At the end of the day, you do not need to break the bank to switch up the look in your home. A little creativity and a little resourcefulness are all you need. And if you are ever in need of a new home, well of course Handler has your back. Browse our gallery and list of available homes to get an idea of the kind of work we do.
