Styling your home can be a costly exercise, but that shouldn’t stop you from giving your home décor a lift! There are so many fun and affordable ways you can completely transform your space on a budget. We’ve listed below some of the best tips  to give your house a makeover, without breaking the bank. 

If you follow any home inspo pages, you’ll notice a recurring theme – greenery! It adds so much life to any space and it’s amazing what a bit of water, sunshine and love can do to a plant. Don’t be afraid to embrace your inner green thumb and take a cutting of a plant you love and try growing it in your own pot, talk about cost – effective! 

Pops of Colour 
Adding in pops of colour instantly lifts any space, and you don’t have to go overboard because sometimes less is more. Simply adding some coloured accessories such as cushions or throws to your lounge will have an immediate impact.  Stores such as Kmart and Target have an incredible range of colourful cushions and throws at affordable prices. 

A very simple way to transform your home is to declutter. You’ll be surprised to find how much you might have accumulated over time, and once you’ve cleared out the clutter, your home will feel more open and spacious. Better yet, you can even use it as an opportunity to list unwanted items for sale, so you’ll be bringing in extra money! Set some time aside over a weekend to roll your sleeves up and get decluttering. 

Scented candles are an affordable way of elevating your home, adding warmth and vibrancy, giving your home a luxurious feel without the expensive price tag. Not to mention they will make your whole home smell amazing! Opt for unbranded candles to avoid pricey ones. 

Designer décor on a budget
Kmart strikes again! Every year Kmart updates its furniture and décor stock, taking the latest designer items and offering them at a lower price. You can snap up this set of two black tables for $39 from Kmart, that cost in excess of $200 with other retailers. Style it with a book and plant and you’ve got designer-style pieces for  a fraction of the price! 


Look for pre-loved options 
A great way to upgrade your home décor on a budget is to keep your eye out for pre-loved items. Rather than buying brand new items, buying from someone online or at a garage sale means you’ll get it at a much lower price. Not only will you be giving your house a new and upgraded feel, but you’ll also be giving these items a new lease on life!
