While the winter might not be the ideal season to give your home a makeover, don’t let the cold weather cramp your creativity. Make sure that you embrace the changes outside, and use these to help you feel inspired when giving your home a much-needed makeover. Even if you don’t have lots of cash to hand, there is a range of ways that you can use your more limited budget to consider which options or rooms need attention. Keep these tips in mind to create a beautiful winter makeover that doesn’t mean you have to take out a loan to finance it.
Embrace the outside
It might be cold and icy outside, but there’s no reason why you can’t bring the best of the season into your home. Start by using some winter greenery or floral arrangements to add some color and style into your home – all for less than twenty dollars. You could consider making your own table arrangements or wreaths, as this is the ideal way to cut back on spending. Next, use the outside to help you review your home accessories. Check out your local dollar store or supermarket for winter warming accessories, such as cheap candles and throws that will make you want to enjoy your home and spend time with family and friends all wrapped up indoors.
Deck the halls
It can be easy to go overboard with your Christmas and winter decorating ideas, so make sure that you keep any festive decorations under control and within budget. Yard sales are the ideal place to browse decorations or fun objects that can brighten up your home for only a few dollars. While your kids will love getting involved and helping create and make your own decorations. Pick up some paper and glue, and get cutting to create your own paper chains or lanterns. While your little ones will love getting the paints and sequins out, so that you can decorate and update those tired baubles and tree decorations.
Christmas is the season to be jolly and enjoy the best of what the winter season has to offer, so why not embrace those warm Christmas colors and use them in your home decorating? If you want to give your kitchen a quick upgrade, then consider updating your cabinetry with a fresh, modern hue. Next, try experimenting with a coat of paint in your living room or hallway. You could try creating a feature wall that will give your guests something to talk about. Finally, check what decorations or stylish accessories that you already own – as it can be easy to splash the cash without using and enjoying what you have to hand.
It’s easy to give your home a warming, winter makeover that doesn’t break the bank this season. Make sure that you buy some low-cost flowers or greenery to make your home feel festive and welcoming. Try experimenting with color and decorations too, and be sure to get the kids involved to make some seriously unique and lovingly crafted Christmas creations.
